Cast out from his barbarian homeland of Atlantis, Kull was forced to grapple with the nonsensical rules of society as he navigated civilization. By gathering extensive knowledge of the world, Kull empowered himself to rise from a feral child to a feared pirate, a ferocious gladiator to, eventually, King of the fabled land of Valusia. Yet even as royalty, Kull remains plagued by questions of identity, all while shadowed specters and scheming political actors threaten his reign.
Thulsa Doom, the most powerful sorcerer to have ever lived, is an eternal enemy of Kull. A loyal servant of the Great Serpent, Thulsa Doom is hellbent on world domination. In service of his goal, Thulsa has mastered the sinister, illusory arts of shapeshifting, invisibility, and even interdimensional travel. Thulsa is a creature of terrible malevolence, with a bared skull and eyesockets that glint with the light of unholy flame, striking fear into the hearts of all who face him.
The ancient civilization of Atlantis was a powerful island-continent located in the ocean west of Thuria and east of the Pictish Islands. Home to barbarous warriors and skilled hunters, the fierce Atlanteans engaged in constant battles with the Picts and the Seven Empires of Thuria. Though it ultimately sank beneath the Cataclysm, Atlantis’ legacy lived on through its colonies and the re-evolved Cimmerians of the Hyborian Age.
The Kingdom of Valusia is a place whose storied past stretches back beyond the dawn of recorded history. Although it has fallen into decay by Kull’s time, it is still regarded as the greatest of the seven kingdoms of the Thurian Age. The people of Valusia are fiercely proud of their traditions and will go to great lengths to defend them, even if it means killing those who dare to speak of their darker legends. Despite its many flaws, Valusia remains a powerful force in the world, held together by the strength and cunning of its king: Kull.
