Nasty, Brutish, and Short
The Savior of the Prodigals
Deceased Leader of Remnant
No one knows from whence he came, but the Savior of the Prodigals appeared to carve a domain out of the Blighted Lands and create a sanctuary for any refugees who were willing to renounce the Old Ones.
And so Remnant was formed.
As so many things, the grand experiment worked well for a time, but ended in failure. Amassing a heterogeneous group was asking for trouble, and when devotees of the Great Old Ones were unhappy with his policy, they slew him.
Best laid plans, and all that.
