Before the Invasion
Once this world was a vibrant place. Cultures of every variety co-existed in the manner typical of untold worlds across the universe. Humans, Dwarfs and Elves battled with the humanoid races as they have on countless planets. Subterranean races lived in a mirror image of their surface cousins. In all these myriad societies were the daily lives of their people played out. They lived, loved, and lost. They worked, they played and worshiped their gods and their demons. Dark deeds and radiant glories played out in the dramas of lives lived in the greatest of kingdoms and the tiniest of hamlets.
If there are any written histories of these times, they lie buried in the remains of this world. If there are any who yet live who can recall the times before the breaking, they are hidden away in the deepest darkest corners of a shattered planet.
