BUILD YOUR OWN WORLD Like what you see? Become the Master of your own Universe!


"For it will be here [Aufest] that the light shall burn through and all darkness withheld. There shall we gather and, at the time appointed, suffer for the fate of the world"
The Prophecy of Gold as recorded
in the annals of Mantar: 1329 AC
  Aufest is a picturesque farming town built on an island in the River Aust on the edges of the Stonebrook Dynasty. The top ridge of the island is crowned with the Temple of the Sun (dedicated to Malor), a huge gold plated dome that sheds continuous light to the town and surrounding region. The rest of the ridge is populated by lesser temples and Lord Warminster's mansion (lord of Aufest).   The Lower town is composed of timber and sandstone face buildings with red tiled rooves. The wealth of the island slowly deteriorates as you move out from the central ridge.
