Land of Iuz (reserved, just waiting for text)

by MerricB

There are few places in the Flanaess more despicable than the Land of Iuz. The evil demigod Iuz rules the nation, demanding fealty and devotion from all. His goal is simple: world domination! He has gathered many men and orcs of ill intent to his banner, and his harsh priesthood oversees them all.

However, Iuz disappeared for many years, and in that time, his land rebelled against his rule. Although he was able to retake the heart of his lands on his return, the Hierophants of the Horned Society to the west still hold part of his domain. So, although Iuz often initiates schemes against other lands, first he wishes to bring the Hierophants to heel.

But no land should feel safe while Iuz sits on his throne!

Campaigning in the Land of Iuz is for DMs who want to offer choices to their Players; Do they side with Iuz (evil) or fight against it, either from a Good aligned party or a competing evil force?
