The World as we know it.
The world is old; for many millennia the gods have played their games upon the land and their presence can still be felt; their immense power struggles often bringing races of all kinds against one another with few holding sway over any one race.
In recent years, long dormant evil gods have begun to attempt to reassert their presence upon the world and these attempts often lead to great swathes of death and destruction as their followers seek greater riches and power through bloodlust and glory and death.
With few exceptions, the races live in balance; a peaceful acceptance of their differences exists; races and cultures intermingle frequently, often sharing in the past of one another’s civilisations and working together to build greater foundries for a stronger world for future generations to live within.
