Setting notes

Magic is rare in the world and the world at large has lost it’s store of knowledge during an event known collectively as the Great Horror. Great Libraries have gone missing, as have entire civilizations, cities and even continents. With knowledge gone, few even know of the details of the Great Horror. Some assume it to be a war, others a plague, and some whisper that it was a bet gone wrong amongst the gods.

Three moons circle the sky and once a month they achieve what is known as the Vibrance, which is when the reflection of the sun causes a brilliance of colors across three distinct moons and the horizon to create a tropical wonder in the sky.

Divination and the priestly arts are done in secret. Anyone caught possessing these skills are considered dangerous. None know where the captured priests go, but none are heard from again. Most assume the gallows.

There are no major cities and even the villages are now at risk of plague and extinction from a lack of basic sanitation. In short, the world ended and has begun anew. There is a resilient optimism to the people of the world that have survived the Great Horror. While villages are rebuilt and rumors of the wars of long ago have become stories of myth. The greater evils of the land now take the form of the rawest form – of thieves, bandits and murderers.

Some say magic still exists, buried deep and others claim it lies at rest within the heart. Regardless, the need to eat, for shelter, and for relative safety are the principle drivers now of the people left behind from the Great Horror.
