A thousand years since the fall of the great Demerian Necromancer King, Nevereen.
The God-Creator Kytos and his Divine Trinity have absconded the mortal plane, leaving Aedisia to fend for itself. Power, territory, control; mortal war looms over the world, but within the shadows of Tainted Arcana, dark practitioners take the stage. Cults, covens, and abominations of the night lurk beyond the scope of mortal eyes. Maneuvering behind veils of secrecy as the mortals vie for supremacy, as their kingdoms rise and fall.
The beat of war drums sounds a haunting cadence across the Central Marches. Legions surge forth to conquer, to destroy, pillage. A holy war has just begun, and the seat of divinity may come to shift.
Etch your name into history, if you dare.
