Single land mass makes up the entire known world. The world, realm, and continent will be referred to as Strata or from planar creatures “The human lands”. North most reaches of Strata are inhabited by Giants and Dragons, they are wild lands. Mountains split the world into two halves the range named Stonesbluff, home to the Dwarves. Stonesbluff is the capital city of the Dwarves. The Southern two-thirds of the continent are inhabited mostly (70%) by humans and widely populated. Splendor City rests in practically the center of the human lands. Off the southern most tip of the continent is a magical island named Moonfenn, home to the Elves and the Wizard’s Council an independent body of intellectuals who focus on nature and magic. Kesslyssal is the capital city on Moonfenn.
Splendor City is home to The Senate a body of representatives who regulate the political and economic stability of the human region. The Senate is the human branch of government for the Allied Nations where the Dwarves have a Royal family and the Elves have a body of Elders. The Allied Nations were formed 230 years ago after a great war against an undead army. The last day of that war the generals from each of the major armies were honored as Legends and were the first to take seats on the Circle of Wisdom.
The Circle of Wisdom, a prestigious order from which you are called to serve by the Wizard’s Council. The Circle is said to have absolute power for the soul responsibility to protect the realm. Today the Circle is viewed by most as a figurehead, since they make no real decisions, and to many it is only a title given to honor great heroes and adventures in this peaceful world. The Circle has nine seats (any unfilled seats will be left un-named for purposes of allowing other players to join, their characters are away on an adventure in the North for the time being).
