The Sundering shattered the world over a hundred years ago.

The Alliance of All Men, the greatest and most advanced civilization to ever conquer the Known Lands was wiped out in the Last War of Men. The centers of Civilization are little more than rubble and smoke, the only remnants of the Alliance are the frontier towns too small to be a noticed. Isolated from each other, clinging to their existence, every day is a blessing.

The Dwarves and Elves, who along with the Humans carved the Kashmar into a prospering continent, had been left behind by the Alliance when their knowledge had been assimilated. Now only the most gracious accept human refugees. These are harsh times and few can afford to show pity.
