"We tell the
tales of heroes to remind ourselves that we also can be great."
The Tao of Shinsei
Urth is the third planet
in a system of eight planets and a single sun known as Solis. Three moons
orbit around the tiny planet in a pattern that only the wisest and most
educated could understand. A single Urth year consists of 360 days and is
broken into four seasons/months, each consisting of 90 days.

The wheel of time turns
and the Age of the Fey has come to an end although not so long ago that
the world still cannot feel its effects. Many of the older members of each
race still remember the Great Sundering which ripped much of the magic of
the world from its roots and brought an end to its greatest age. Thus the
world has begun to rebuild itself once again. The Grey Elves have
retreated to the island of Lanir, the heart of their once vast empire.
Their lands have been handed over to the High and Wood Elves and it
appears that neither race wishes to recreate what glory the Grey Elves
left behind. The various clans of the Dwarven races have gone their
separate ways and now make their homes across the various mountain ranges
of the world. Halflings continue to exist as they always have while the
Gnomes, now shunned by their fellow races, have retreated to the Old Took
Mountains south of the Kingdoms of Pel. The rest of the world is home to
the scattered races which find themselves lacking in number when compared
to the more dominant species.
In the north-west mankind
have managed to band together and form the first true kingdom of human
beings, the Kingdom of Cazia. Far to the west across the Bay of Swords
lies the small continent of the Five Kingdoms of Jade and far to the south
of those lies the infamous Thassalanic Empire. Far to the south-east lies
the continent of Bon Bini, a land constantly battered by the powerful rays
of Solis while the islands of the Woten remain secluded from the rest of
the world far to the north-west.
