The Deep

The Deep is consider one of the oldest places that existed on the continent of Dageth that predates all of its original inhabitants. It is a dark and unsavory place. Filled with things that even Dwarves dare not dig into. The origins of this place were that of the original masters of the continent, the Wryms. Giant creatures that burrowed deep in the earth to travel and search for food. These beasts would die out from unknown reasons, but many creature would take their place in these underground tunnel system that connects the entire continent. Making it possible to travel across the continent in a matter of days or weeks if one would want a change of scenery.

To go deeper in to it will only mean that death is all that awaits.
