Rynyalla, In The House of The Jade King
A hundred thousand years of civilization have rampaged the world, multi-verses and time itself have been ravaged by the relentless era of eternal warfare. Far to the North, the Barbarian Thaumatergists have unleashed monstrous abominations of magic and flesh, to the South, mutations spawn, evolve and devolve unchecked, In the East the Rend consumes entire oceans, and to the West, the Elves of the Illorii have shuttered the Barrier of the World.
Humankind, and the beleaguered races of the Once-Free are beset on all sides. Magic has become fouled, beasts and demons run unchecked, and Pantheons of Gods quarrel amongst themselves and fall silent.
Beneath a dust speckled sky, the stars are going out and all that is known is becoming lost.
There is no hope.
