Legends and Lore
There are many stories, songs, and histories floating the popular imagination, often contradicting one another. These disparate fragments of lore are gathered here, in the hopes that sifting through them will reveal the unvarnished truth.
- The Hungry Years: After the fall of the Cadian Empire, the humans of its successor kingdoms set about fighting each other and the orcish invaders while the land around them continued to slide into ruin. The dwindling food stores were reserved for the warlords’ armies, who spent more and more time trying to steal one another’s food stores. Many thousands died in the fighting, and more in the famines. With the land sick and littered with bones, it seemed like the End Times. Until the Elves emerged from what was left of their forests.
