Flora and Fauna: The plains of Swordcoast are mostly cultivated with wheat, hops and barley, leaving only the western low hills for pastures. As a result, most of Swordcoast is farmland, with trails and earthen roads crisscrossing the countryside. All of the trees have been cut down, killing and driving away the woodland creatures formerly living here. Common fauna now include livestock (pigs, hens, cows and chickens) and the occasional stone marten, weasel (both giant and normal) and otter. Since the majority of the people living in Swordcoast are able to wield a weapon effectively, not many wild monsters remain today in this country.

Last Year's Events: With Thyatian funds and support, Maximus organized a coalition of forces to oppose the conquest of Serenity by Dikhoff and its Heldannic allies. When the opposition was defeated, Maximus naturally revealed the nature of his agreement with the Thyatians and assumed the position of governor of the region. The other barons turned on him, though, sounding the end of the coalition.
