Apex is a Location in Tyranny, a mountainous realm to the east of The Bastard Tier, Apex stood by as their neighbors fell to Kyros' armies. The troops of the mountain realm of Apex stood idle in the safety of their valley, bidding their time as their neighbors in the Bastard Tier fell. In the second year of war, a joint force of the Disfavored and Scarlet Chorus crossed over the mountains to take control of the Tier's central valley.
The mountain nation of Apex, ruled for generations by the Queens of House Vendrien, stood at the heart of the Tiers. No army could bypass the landlocked realm without leaving their flank exposed to attack.
