Named by a long forgotten people, the northern continent of Gonroth has entered a new age of prosperity. This is owed in no small part to the foundation of Dwenressia roughly 100 years ago.
The entire continent had once been charted by civilized races, but it has been countless eons since that time and much of the map has fallen into darkness during the Age of Shadow. Few, if any, know what lies beyond the safe borders of Dwenressia.
As to why Gonroth fell into darkness, none can say. Though legends and theories abound as to the cause of the Age of Shadow.
