“Millennia ago world stood undivided… then fled a god… and followers came…
To countless numbers grew… elder races overthrew… among gods they flew…
Then races divine.. all alike stared down… and toppled human the crown…
Dead, destroyed, diminished they now live on a divided world.”
The World rotates around its polar axis, with the sun rising and setting in an arch from The Rim. Thus, the sun sails closest and shines the most at the pole, making the northern lands, especially those at the Islands of Findon and Mealis, the hottest and driest lands on the planet.
The known world has three continents, The Realm, Darin which is connected with that planet spanning mountain range we call The Rim, and Outlands. Rulers and traders of ours have through time tried to reach out to Outlands, in attempts to trade and exchange knowledge. But the various races of Outlands have halted all such attempts with hostility; killing or capturing, as I have seen, traders and envoys.
As they did travel throughout our lands prior to The Great Invasion, there was a rumor that the Kinoblin race originated from Outlands. It was based upon the fact that the sails of their trade ships were seen appearing in the horizon far west of and . Asked directly, any Kinoblin denied that fact until The Great Invasion occurred. Some people didn’t even believe me, I who even has been to Outlands, when I told them that I had seen the Kinoblin empire and could guarantee they were from Outlands. Regardless, they are now a hunted foe.
