A sickness of the land called 'taint' is spreading and will engulf neighboring civilizations if not resolved.

Years after the most recent and devastating war surrounding the fall of the Great Dragon, a sickness has set in. It is not the peoples who suffer, but the land. Isolated parts of Elesya seem to possess a certain taint, magically tainted and completely problematic for passers by. Over time these areas have been marked on maps so as to avoid them, but recently there has been growing concern in their apparent growth. Some are desperately trying to stop the spread, others are completely oblivious or ignore the impending disaster - distracted by their own problems without realizing the spread of these tainted areas of land could very well be all of Elesya's problem in the near future.
