Standing Stones of Dungeon World
Calabria is the seat of both culture and magical knowledge for unnamed nation. It is protected on the West by unnamed mountain range, and is bordered to the south by a river. It houses the University of Wizardry which accepts students from all over Aarinland, so long as they have a magical lineage.
One of the major political factions in Calabria is Wizards for Peace, who supports less spending on the military guard and putting that money toward the University, reasoning that their relatively safe location and strong concentration of Wizards meant a military force was unnecessary and put forth a violent face. This faction was backed strongly by Quintus, and they were able to gain a vast amount of support in the town.
Unbeknownst to anybody within the faction, Quintus was doing this as a favor to Grimwil. With a severely reduced guard, Grimwil’s Band was able to launch a powerful frontal assault on the city and, despite their magical strength, the Orcs were able to take the town in a matter of days. Most of the city’s wizards were killed; many were kept alive and held captive to be used as either slaves or leverage, while a few managed to escape and flee across Aarinland.
