Skyfall Basin: Into The Breach
The world was created by the Primordials at the dawn of time, before they were sealed away by the Gods and the world remade as a home for their chosen, the races of Man. The history of the world has been a cycle of conflict between the Darkness, the monstrous spawn of the Primordials, and the Light, children of the Gods. You live in the aftermath of the latest conflict, when the Dark rose up to crush the great kingdoms of Man. The last several hundred years have been spent pushing back the dark and rebuilding the light of civilization. You live in the shelter of one of those scattered lights, in the area known as the Skyfall Basin.
