A century and a half has passed and the world is just beginning to crawl out from under the smoldering ruins of the the Age of Men’s fall. Weilding fearsome Mechanomagical war machines the powerful independent city states fought each other and nearly tore the world, itself, apart. Our adventurers are the first generation since the war to explore out and make contact with any surviving settlements. A new power, a force calling itself the Emerald Fist has begun an expanse of power, taking over smaller-less protected settlements. The Emerald Fist is both corrupt and evil, more feared than respected.
