Rise of the Fallen
The Verge is the nefar-infested borderland that hasn’t known civilization for thousands of years. The nefar—goblins, orcs, trolls, ogres, and similar creatures—exist as scattered tribes across this great expanse. They hunt and kill intruders who attempt to cross this wild, uncivilized land. Groups of nefar also routinely transgress the Krakens mountain range into the Nightland to hunt for easier pickings in the form of human settlements, which is something they didn’t dare before the Fall, at least, not after the Goblin God was slain by Zenia.
