This is a world of opposites; ancient cities and vast empires are surrounded by deep forests filled with fell creatures. Kings and queens rule the lands, but even the poorest of children could be born into mage-power. Gods may choose to walk amongst the people, but rarely do they blatantly use their might.
This is the world, the earth.
This is a world on which great civilizations dwelt, and fell. This is a world which was cast into the darkness beyond war, and is only just recovering. This is a world which has the potential to rise again… and to fall once more.
This is the circle, the great turning of seasons, nations, lives.
The circle is turning, and your story has begun.
