Sleep now gentle dragon Jorgen and his father set out for the Mountain of Storms, the only place you could find dragons these days. Every ten years the men of Jorgen’s village would go into the Mountains and hunt for dragons. Their village was famous for their hunts and all the dragon’s they had slayed. So much so that no king’s army or barbarian horde had ever dared to attack them. Wars came and went with their village left untouched. Such was the fear that dragons engendered.

It was one thousand years ago, in the time of the Ascension, that he who history would come to know as the One Mighty And Strong split open the skies and ascended to heaven. Where, it is said, he reordered the stars and changed the fundamental nature of the Universe. Thus began the era of miracles which even a millennium later still defines our world.
An era which brought forth the Elementals kings, the beastkin, and the legendary giants of Syrephon Deep. However as if in response to nature's reassertion of its ancient divine powers mankind rose above the world and gravitated into space. A gap grew between common folk who were bound to the land and
