The land of Argonen is a continent in which humans are unheard of by most and only a legend to those who study history. Even then, they are not known as humans in the traditional sense, but rather as a species of mythically perfect beings who employed the use of magic in the most pervasive sense; it is believed that every single individual within their society could use magic to some degree. However idyllic their society may have been, a supposed doom fell upon them and their society crumbled, and they quickly passed into antiquity.
From the ruins of the civilization, the non- and half-human races that had commingled with the ancient Dyne, as they were known, took over the various regions of the continent and spawned vastly different kingdoms and empires of their own. Over time, the Dyne and their cities were forgotten or taken over, and history reflected that with few mentions of their society.
