Welcome to Evalaw.
The holy war is over, and the evils that once plagued these lands have been vanquished. But was such a sacrifice truly worth paying? The Creator god lies dead and the heavens torn asunder, our world cries out into the darkness for salvation, haunted by the sins of the past as the faith of its people begins to wane.
Evalaw is a sword and sorcery setting with a dark heart and strong themes of theomachy.
Evalaw is a realm scarred by the vengeful gods that once fought each other for ultimate control of the world, while the mortals of Evalaw have progressively fought for power over generations to remake this dying world. These mortal societies emerged out of a legacy of trauma and calamity brought about by divine conflicts. While many of these once mighty deities have vanished or become silent, ignorant and oblivious to those who still pray to them for deliverance. Once an idyllic paradise, brimming with an abundance of life and wonderment, this time of innocence would not last. The growing hubris of the gods and their vaulted ambitions that would slowly corrupt and despoil all that was once good and pure in this innocent realm. Two devastating planar events, The Cadence and The Sundering., would transform much of Evalaw into a sinister reflection of its former self. One can encounter fantastical magic, mystery and whimsey living alongside fell creatures and malignant shadows, corrupting and tainting everything they touch. Even the most good and virtuous many not always appear as they first would seem. Tread carefully wanderer, though these dreadful times would pass, and light would once again return to the world, the shadows of the past still linger in the fell places of this world, waiting patiently for their time to come again.
Ours was once a peaceful and harmonious world, until the Fallen One appeared. Casting down the creator and despoiled everything that once was as the cadence he unleashed ravaged the land. Corrupting all that was once pure, pitting kin against kin. What he did to our world was merely a cruel prelude of what was to come, and it would change the face of Evalaw forever.
