The World of Kandria has always been dangerous and magical. Magic flows through everything and everyone in the world, most people have the ability to use this magic to a limited extent but those who really practice and develop these skills can become extremely powerful.
The Orcs of the Orclands are a constant threat to most other races of Kandria with many nations banding together to stop the aggressive expansion of the clever brutal Orcs who inhabit that region.
It has been 20 years since the last orcish invasion of Kandria with many nations still feeling the ongoing affects of the damage dealt by the Orcs. A new orc kingdom of Zalzar has formed and allied itself with the Sylvan Realm to help keep those brutal orcs a bay.
