The world has been broken by a terrible war of wizardry. Terrible spells have wrought total devastation. Blue sky has gone leaving burning stars in its place. Terrible maelstorms spontaneously hurl stone and lightning. Aftershocks of elemental energy still shake the land.
Without nation or law, those that remain resort to brutal barbarism, necromancy, and worse. Even more concerning is the spontaneous appearence of strange otherworldy creatures that consume life energy.
Hope remains with a precious few who seek to restore the missing gods and unite the people against the new tyrrants of a dark world.
