The world of Tariel was once a world torn by war. Different races and cultures created alliances around the world which led to the final battleground taking place for one of the races to finally dominate the whole world. At the final battlefield in the final hour the spirit of the world itself was driven mad in anger and turned against the inhabitants of the world. The tree’s come alive and ripped through flesh with their whipping roots, the water rose to become elements that drowned and flooded forces around them and fires rose to scorch and burn everything around them . The story of what happened is for another day. But was is known in history is the following,
The world spirit broke the continents of the world and separated the races of the world to separate islands surrounding a large central mass in the centre of the world . The spirit of the world spoke to all the races and banned war, if war broke out across the world the spirit will rise again and destroy all inhabitants of the world. The races of the world began to develop and arguments soon began over trade policies and ownership of land. Intervening again the world spirit realised something needed to be done so it arranged for a tournament to be held in the central land mass every 5 years. The island that the winner of the tournament come from will rule over all the other islands for the next 5 years. The central land has no rules. Each island may select champions to travel to the central land mass known as the field of thunder to train and prepare for the next tournament.
However the field of thunder is no place for normal men. It is full of dangerous hulking beasts, shrines of lost knowledge from before the breaking of the world. Host to lost artifacts. And a land full of murder, treachery death and destruction. Will you enter the field of thunder? What are you looking for? To become champion , to find out what has happened to loved ones? To find lost knowledge… The land holds many mysteries and your adventure has begun .
The current reigning island is a swampland known as reshlik island host to the lizardmen tribe slakanians or slaka for short. A peaceful religious tribe who believe in honour and loyalty.
There are over 20 islands of different inhabitants, some interested in ruling , some interested in the arts of magic and the pursuit of knowledge and some focused on invention and gadgets.. All have entered champions before to the fields , and most have never returned
