It has been more than five years since the Mourning killed countless thousands in central Khorvaire, erasing Cyran from the map and turning the thousands of miles of verdant countryside to ash. But if any good thing has come from the Day of Mourning it was most certainly the Treaty of Thronehold. The treaty has frayed and strained under the weight of the Five Nations, but it has held. The Last War is over.
The War has been over for nearly two years and the people of Khorvaire struggle to rebuild their lives in the wake of 100 years of chaos and destruction. Men, women, even children, conscripted at a young age to help defend your nation from the ceaseless march of foreign armies, must now find other means to support their families.
It is a time of hardship and unrest, but also of opportunity. The Five Nations continue to plot against each other, often hiring outside agents to further their complex agendas. The Dragonmarked Houses continue to grow in power without the united kingdom of Galifar to hold them in check. Vast regions of Khorvaire lay shrouded in darkness, forgotten during the long years of conflict. Other lands, from the dark jungles of Xen’Drik to the mysterious dragon-lands of Argonnessen, lay largely unexplored.
It is here that the story begins.
The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it. – Albert Einstein
