Rise of the 13th Age
The Wintercrest Massacre is an event that occurred approximately 40 years ago in the city of Foothold. It is named after the Winter Solstice festival during which it occurred. The Massacre was perpetrated by demons, including Jimmy Brimstone’s father, and resulted in about half of the town’s population being slaughtered. Afterwards, the Crusader moved his army into the city to regain control, at least nominally, for the Emperor. Over the past 40 years, the city has begun to recover, though it is now closer to a highly militarized fortress than a thriving city.
