From Gaea’s trembles they riseA tide of darkness, old not wiseThe skies will darken, creatures howlThe end of all, all befouled
Before the Chaos can conspireTo doom all life with its desireThe Maiden will come with LightTo dispel the Darkness and the Night
With her she brings The SeerWarning her of trouble nearSpeaking of the yet unknownWhere to seek the dangers sown
But two alone is not enoughSo with them: Her Guards, gruffMagi, wrought with magic strongAnd Thieves to right the wrong
Her Counsel words of wisdom bringsOf paths to choose and other thingsThe Bard, The Beggar follow tooWriting, watching, worlds anew
Even The Fool will be alongTo keep all merry with songFor as the times grow ever darkThe spirit of humanity is the spark.
– Excerpt from “The Prophecy”, epic poem by the ancient Seer Caliteh. Widely studied and known to some degree in modern culture, it is now generally regarded as the Seer’s one false prophecy.
Gaea is a world much like Earth, only magic and monsters abound. Humans live with Elves, Dwarves, Halfings, Half-orcs, and all manner of other creatures, many of which are much less common than Humans. There are kingdoms throughout the world; certainly there are wars. Sometimes they are between the so-called ‘good’ races, the ones aligned with Humans and Elves. Other times those of the ‘evil’ races - Orcs, Goblins, Shadowspeakers, and more - will strike against the human claimed territories, but they are driven back to the mountains and caves they live in. There has not been a great war with the evil races in some time; in fact, all nations have been quite peaceful of late.
Our story begins in the human kingdom of Erl, a vast expanse that covers the majority of its continent. Land of all climates are within its borders, along with most sorts of races who at the very least tolerate the rule of the human king. The northernmost reaches of which reach the Malspun Mountains, the place where good folk do not go.
