A land of untamed wilds and lonely hinterland trails. A land of fifty quarreling dukedoms. A land of two shores. Umerigo, Land of Nieces and Nephews. An elected king governs over the streets of humid Columbia, but outside those ivory walls exists a vast territory populated by a people tempered by their harsh reality. Horrid creatures both alien and familiar roam the wilds terrorizing farmsteads, ruthless highwaymen waylay unsuspecting travelers, and confidence men hop from town to town wringing every penny they can from gullible marks.
