The World of Torvos
Over two thousand years ago the land of Torvos was enslaved by darkness, unimaginable evil ruled the land and its people were slaves and worse than slaves. Then Sul arose and with an army of immortals, drove back the darkness and forged the Empire of the Sun. For a two thousand years the Empire ruled over the land of Torvos, the house of Sul ruled wisely, well and all races prospered. Now the Empire has fallen, torn from within as the scorn of the house of Sul fell upon each with knives, magic and armies, each vying to claim the unoccupied throne. Former vassal states and cities find themselves alone once more. Alliances must be formed and trade reestablished for, after almost two thousand years of central rule, few cities are self sufficient, and fewer still have might to defend from an aggressive assault.
