The Present - Runeland History
The Godfall: End Era - Present Time.
- Gaxmoora, the greatest empire of man has been lost for three-hundred years. Destroyed in a war with the gods, Menos and his human kin attempted to usurp the pantheon and as punishment the empires grand works have been lost to time. Menos has been written out of the histories and the mortal races now contend with a dying world.
- The New Pantheon has left Ohr to allow the world to die so that they can return to reshape its lifeless husk in the future. They have stolen away the veil and have taken the gifts of the afterlife and god-realms with them. Now the dreamer's waking thoughts have found Ohr and greater things than even Hastur are reaching out towards the planet. A freezing, dying world offers little in the way of resistance.
- The elves have lost their identities over the ages and have taken to calling themselves the 'first-born'. They were elevated with self-proclaimed titles and believed that they were the chosen race that the gods would ascend to escape the terrible fate that would befall Ohr. When it became clear that the gods had left them to die with the others, their hopes were lost and suicide and desperation were a common sight among their kind. Few elves remain and those who do are left with a burden that few can stand.
- The Dwarves as foolhardy and stubborn as ever joined their human allies in the war against the gods, their patron deity An'kogh was so distraught by their choice to rally against him, he unleashed terrible monstrosities to destroy their under-kingdom. Their Thaigs and Karaks beneath the earth were besieged by thousands of horrid beasts while earthquakes and plagues befell their people. Their empires were lost and now they dwell on the surface world in the cold with the rest of the mortals. Many dwarves hold grudges against the humans for their current predicament, not allowing the blame to fall on themselves or their choices.
