Return of the Hydra: prologue
The Midlands are the central part of the world, where magic is scarce and the terrors from the Borderlands are only faint rumors. Most inhabitants are plain Humans who live in sweet ignorance, unaware of the dangers of both Demons and Dinagul. Nowadays, Kern has conquered the biggest part of the Midlands and plans even to expand into the Borderlands. In this quest, they are secretly aided by Rhea the Renegade, leader of the Rebel Ennearchs.
