7 Truths of the World   During the founding of Ostoria, titans, giants, and their kin sealed away the Primordials to harness their magic and work wonders. Through their enslavement an empire was born.   Eons ago giants crafted and molded other races into being to raise themselves up in The Ordning. From these early workings at forge and anvil, workshop and factory, man, dwarf, halfling, and goblin came into being. At the bottom of The Ordning, these nascent races scrambled over the crumbs left by their parent races.   To the East, Dragons stirred. Dragons raided. Dragons found these meddling races of humans and dwarves fascinating and learned to take the guise of these fragile forms. Over time two new races emerged: elves and dragonborn.   Though dragonkind had lived in and around Ostoria in relative peace since its founding, one thousand years ago all that changed when the Children of the Dragons, the Drow, incited their parents to war with the Giants. Called the Titans’ War, lines were drawn amongst dragonkind: Metallic and Chromatic fought each other in a Draconic Civil War while the Drow under the banner of Tiamat waged war against their elven brethren.   There is much magic in the world through pact and blood, songs of creation, divine pleas to the gods or from the land itself, but Arcane Magic was a lost art, bound in the ice along the Spine of the World. Its recent rediscovery helped the emancipation of the giants’ slaves: humans and dwarves.   The discovery of this new magic changed the nature and fortunes of elves as well: The Drow forged rings of great power that could bind shapechangers to their lesser forms trapping and forcing them to live out their days in mortal form. As a result, Metallic Dragons, the guardians of the lesser races, captured in battle were bound to the forms of man and elf. Rumors exist of Metallic Dragons that escaped this fate, but since this time they have all but vanished from the world.   The rediscovery of Arcane Magic 300 years ago changed everything. Since then, a tentative truce ended 700 years of war and allowed mankind and dwarves to found a new kingdom of their own carved out in the lands between the two warring nations of giant and dragon. In the last 100 years, the last wizards have all but vanished taking their arcane knowledge with them. Whether dead, in hiding, or bound, many fear that their absence will spark a new war when the foes of man discover this truth.
