BackgroundThe situation in Lirantina 2019 went from bad to worse. Government forces failed to retrieve and secure the baralonium barrels but instead damaged and destroyed them in an artillery strike on the convoy transporting the barrels. The fighting between the two sides continued as the civilian population fled out of the area not trusting the government forces to protect them. Those who stayed were forced away or executed by the local police.
As a result of the disaster, different extremist groups quickly formed where people didn't trust neither the government forces nor General Fuentes, and small isolated societies began to form in the outskirts of Lirantina. The most prominent and powerful of these societies are known as the 'Cult of Crows'. They are an extremely religious group of people who have disconnected themselves from modern society and live their own simple agriculture life in an area deep within the forest. The Cult has been in the area for decades, but it's only now when other groups have tried to form in the area that their power and hostility against outsiders have been shown.
The cult is ruthless and unforgiving to anyone who doesn't share their beliefs, and they don't hesitate to use force against anyone who intrude on their land.
