In the wake of a devastating civil war, a small human kingdom struggles to heal and find its place in a wider world, inhabited by other races and peoples. Magic seeps from the ruins of a forgotten civilization all about them, and only now are humans beginning to understand its power. What gods there are are quiet, intervening rarely, if ever, in their creation. Monsters roam the borders of the realm, and the wild can be a dangerous place, but most people live out their lives close to some degree of civilization. Thus, there are secrets to be found everywhere, and power to be gained for those brave enough to seek it out.
