Flames of Madness
The Beastlands are a series of city-states ruled by monsters. Xenophobic is a polite way of saying they will kill humans and elves with no remorse. They have recently come into notice because they assimilated the nearby land of Durpar, effectively saving the citizens from the Fomorians, but putting them under the direct jurisdiction of their new monstrous overlords. Curiously, it seems the people of the Beastlands are willing to let the people of Durpar self-govern. Beside that, outsiders know little else of the Beastlands.
