Most of Oros is a war zone. The island’s original inhabitants (goblins) went extinct during the first century of fighting. The western half of the island is controlled by the Zorist Alliance, while the eastern half is occupied by the army of Ficia. The only city on Oros is Beerville, which is in the center of the island. Ringed by physical and magical walls, it serves as a “safe zone” of sorts for deserters and refugees. The town was built on a large hill around a magical spring that produces alcohol instead of water. This led to several taverns opening near the supply, and soon a town formed around them. In order to allow construction during the Fician-Zorist War, several magi were hired to erect defenses around the workers. Eventually the magi formed The Coven of the Wasted, which is a council of 15 magi who rule over the city and protect its neutrality.
