Cyre, now called the Mournland, lies in the southeast of the continent of Khorvaire. A government formerly ruled by Queen Dannel ir’Wynarn at the height of its power, Cyre was utterly devastated on the Day of Mourning.
Cyre was a strategic battleground in the Last War, and was host to some of the largest battles of that war. In the last years of the Last War, Cyre was suddenly, and inexplicably, destroyed. A not-quite-dead wasteland remains where Cyre lay, surrounded by a thick gray fog. It appears that Mournland is literally an open grave, where the bodies of deceased soldiers refuse to decay. A few survivors from Cyre have settled a village in Breland, dubbed New Cyre. The village has expanded to a population size of about 5,000.
Where the great nation of Cyre once proudly stood now lies a land blasted by supernatural catastrophe. Like a festering wound, the Mournland divides the continent of Khorvaire in half. Dead-gray mist defines its borders, and within those borders the wounds of the Last War do not heal. Thousands of soldiers lie as if they had died mere moments ago on what were once the battlefields of battered Cyre. The dead, or their spirits, sometimes rise to continue fighting the war. Rampant arcane energy has mutated the monsters that live and hunt here. Those same arcane forces shape unnatural weather and deadly terrain, and sometimes take on a semblance of life itself.
