Amanor in 2501
In the year 2501 Amanor is a world of high fantasy and high adventure.
Daring mortals quest through uncharted wilds in search of mythic secrets, hunt for treasures in the ruins of forgotten past, and vanquish terrible monsters for coin and glory.

The world's history is filled with conflict and tragedy, but mortal civilizations flourish in the current age -- named by scholars as the Blessed Age

. Mortals living in these dark times know not of hope, safety or prosperity, for they are nothing but playthings of their Eternal Sovereign...
