Page 1 Transcript
Journey backwards through time, to Europe before the Middle Ages. What if… elves, dwarves, and halflings were real? What if… mighty sorcerers sought the secrets of the universe? What if… you lived in such a world?
Long ago, the land of Carinthia founded a mighty empire. They conquered Izonda, Karchula, Arypt, and Torkes. The Carinthians brought peace and stability to diverse lands.
Everywhere they went, roads, bridges, and mighty temples were constructed. The worship of Zeus and the Olympians spread far and wide.
Then, barely three centuries after the Empire of Carinthia was founded, hordes of barbarians from Telesia to the East brought ruin upon all the lands. The cities of Carinthia were sacked and brought down. The Empire had fallen.
