  • Dwarves

    Out of the five prominent races, the dwarves are definitely on the decline. The dwarves who remain now risk being cut off from their kin who have delved into the earth. This is a topic of much debate over late-night ales. Almost yearly a host of …

  • Dragons

    A thousand years ago dragons were of one purpose, to take this plane as their own. Their war against the dwarves is well chronicled, although they see the history quite differently. Exactly how they see it is outside the realm of PC knowledge but …

    Marn is a land overrun with giant kudzu ramping up to 100's of feet in height. The land is populated exclusively by marns, who farm this land diligently with an insect-like efficiency and precision. Marns are tall spindly creatures, sort of a …
