The Appalachia campaign takes place in a version of our world. The Indians are elves and have used their magic to drive the European human invaders back into the sea. At low to medium levels, the game will be played in North America in the Appalachian mountains, following the conflict between the surviving human remnant and the Elven Indians. At high levels, the campaign can extend world-wide.
