North of Lankhmar lies The Land of the Eight Cities, a young realm lying in the shadows of the Great Forest and rich in natural resources. This barely-tamed wilderness is rife with opportunities for adventure and riches, but also contains hitherto-unknown dangers. Nevertheless, for adventurers who’ve worn out their welcome in Lankhmar, the Forest Land is a welcoming place to escape their enemies in the City of the Black Toga.
