Where neither Seraphim nor raindrops go...
The world is old. No one really knows how old, because when it was young, there were different ways of keeping time and the sun and moon were something else altogether. There were gods then, beings of immense power, and their reflections, the T’tan, who eventually fought against them. That was long long ago. Now the gods are all dead and those few T’tan still living are largely bound. Countless empires have risen and fallen, from the Dragon-empire of Arkhosia to the Demonblooded empire of Bael Turath. At their death, the mantle and favor of the gods was given to humanity to ensure peace, blessing, and justice in the world. Now the last of the humans are all but gone and other species vie for tiny scraps of power. And those of the mortal coil are not the only ones. The other six of the Seven Realms also vie for influence, the sepulchral Underdark and the Abyssal Hells below, the Celestial Heavens and Astral Sea above the ever-raging Maelstrom, and rifts to the Feywild moon that haunts the woods and mountain. The world is a fantastic place brimming with danger, mystery, and intoxicating reward.
