Melinia is a wild world. Vast areas of untamed land lie in between pockets of civilization across its continents. The wilderness is a dangerous place for adventurers such as yourselves, and downright deadly for the common folk. Beasts rule over their natural domains with unbounded fierceness. Monsters prey on whatever is unfortunate enough to stumble across them. Beyond this, unsavory members of the civilized races have found their foothold in settlements of all sizes across the globe, plaguing less discerning members of their respective societies. Despite this, civilized life has found a way to survive, and in some cases thrive, here for tens of thousands of years.
For some, though, the call of the wild is too strong to ignore, and you fall into this category. For reasons known only to you, you have decided to throw off the shackles of common comforts and customs in favor a freer and more fulfilling life.
