A young world in relation to the cosmos, Torrin is a world wrought with strife. Monsters and dangerous creatures lurk in every corner. The sentient races can be seen banding together to form communities so they might stand a chance against the onslaught. The "civilized" societies war with one another for control over land already cleared of threats. Torrin has known many wars.
The gods have seemingly left Torrin to destroy itself, only revealing their powers to the most devout followers. Kingdoms and empires have slowly turned away from traditional practices and instead revere heroes, whose deeds and power altered the course of history, as self proclaimed deities.
