Brief HistoryA land that is lush and fertile, but has a long history of conflict and bloodshed. Thousands of years ago it was once ruled by the Elven Empire and peace reigned between all races that lived there. Then the Beastmen came from the dying lands of east and conflict erupted when the Elves refused them in giving them land. A great war soon came and Beastmen burned down the forests that covered the land at the time and drove the Elves across the sea. The Beastmen would rule the west for the next thousand years. Then Humans would then rise up to oppose them as The First Kingdom of Men waged war with them for centuries in the Beast War. Humans would eventually win the war and drive the Beastmen into hiding in the Great Forest where they remain to this day. But the kingdom would collapse soon after a centuries of war crippled it and the land would be divided into a hundred kingdoms. Humanity has become the dominant power, but now their lust for power has driven them to destroy one another. It has been going on like this for thousands of years and it still continues now. But the nations of Humanity have risen and fallen from time to time, but no matter how much time passes it all remains the same. For a land that could nurture and care for all who live in it, blood instead spilled into its soil as conflict continues across it.
CulturesThere many cultures that exists across these lands with having some influence while other ones have died out they have managed to endure.

But it doesnt mean they wont try to wipe out any other races that reamain that would be considered a threat to them. As all human do the same thing, what they do not understand, they seek to destroy.
