Season 1 - Shadows of the Past

Combat Map

The Isle of Cadranite, a land of many mysteries and peoples. Settled thousands of years ago by refugees fleeing the war torn land of Seldenak, it has become a haven for all seeking a new life. No single form of government rules the island; in fact, it is dotted with several towns of various sizes. Each town has its own system of rule, and for the most part, everyone gets along. The largest settlement in the land is Freeport, a bustling metropolis that provides trade between Cadranite and all the other lands of the world. In addition to the settlements, assorted ruins dot the landscape, drawing many people to them to explore.

The geography of the land is rather quite unique. At the northern tip lies the Talon Mountains, and within its peaks are the Dragon Caves, where the Silver and White dragons live. On the eastern portion, exists the Jeweled Plains, names so because of the three lakes at the center that mysteriously produce various gems throughout the year. In western Cadranite, there is a massive forest known as Wealdis and a swamp known as the Black Marsh. Finally, in the south lies the Izzod Badlands, a vast labyrinth of canyons that provides protection to the Endless Mines.

Current Year: 3026 P.M. (Post-Migration)

Cadranite Character Stuff

Elven Culture:

History: When the Forest Mother set forth to create the mortal races, she first picked up several strips of bark that had fallen from a tree, turned them seven times in her hands, and transformed them into a graceful beings with long hair like the autumn leaves and long elegant pointed ears. These became known as the First Elves. Over the next century, she nurtured their love for beauty and song, weaving it into the very fiber of their being. Her teachings became the very core of Elven society.
When Cardus came and first taught them how to forge weapons, their work was still very elegant and took much of its inspiration from the natural world. Then Zarana came along, showed them the true Art of Metalworking, and then their crafts truly became a wonder to behold.
Then came the event known as The Migration. It was a time when many Elven clans felt an irresistible pull towards other lands. Leaving their homes in the forest, these clans left to find new ones. Some moved to the coast and beyond, some moved to the mountains, and still some went underground. Over time, each of these adapted to their new environment, creating several diverse sub-races.

Culture: Elven culture is one of art and beauty. Almost every surface elf is good at some form self-expression. Everyday life is filled with sound of singing, music, and other sounds of crafting. And every year on the summer solstice, the Elves gather for a large celebration that lasts two to three days. There is a saying that goes, ‘When an Elf doesn’t sing, it’s time to worry.’

Lands: Practically anywhere, but most prefer to stick to the forests.

Magic: Like their culture, Elven magic is very melodious and full of rhythm. Every syllable is specifically chosen for a desired effect.


One of two mortals to ascend to god-hood, this elderly man devoted his life to letting other experience the pure joy of sailing the sea that he did.

This god was born from the chaos that set forth the world. Cardus was the first to recognize the mortal’s potential for greatness. Sneaking some fire from Zarana’s forge, the god brought it to primitive mortals and taught them to forge weapons and take hold of their own destiny. But the mortal’s killer instinct was stronger than the god thought. Soon, the intelligent races began slaughtering one another without mercy.

This led her to gather a vast array of knowledge, most of which she secreted away. Upon reaching maturity, her hunger began to shift towards more physical gratification.

She created the checks and balances that keep the world and the entire universe in working order. But the burden was becoming too much to bear, so she created her son, Faluun to assist. When mortals appeared and began dying, Mara took it upon herself to create another plane for their wandering souls to go, The Eternal Kingdom.
