Alleys of Punjar
Twenty-one years ago, the “Dark Plague,” as is now know today, ravaged Punjar and its immediate environs killing nearly one-quarter of the city’s population within a single year. Thought to have originated amongst the folk inhabiting the ghettos outside the city’s walls in the Great Black Swamp, the virulence of the Dark Plague is still rumored to have unnatural origins. The plague affected all levels of society from the lowliest of beggars in Smoke to the haughtiest members of the Aristocracy. Only the Gaolers seemed to have been immune to the effects of the disease.
