World of Shadow
In the distant reaches of space there slumbers a world of shadow. once a crowning jewel of the Illyrian empire it was lost to darkness in the great war. now that darkness hungers for the souls of man.
Hidden by a cluster of Black Holes it has remained Hidden for countless centuries until Ivan cross managed to decipher a star chart found preserved by a dead culture during one of his less renowned digs.
the Military funded the first expedition to this world in the hopes that Cross would manage to uncover lost technologies of a seemingly revered alien race.
the expedition was a disaster leaving only one survivor and the military quickly buried the embarrassment and court-marshaled the surviving sergeant to discredit any stories he might tell.
It would have remaind buried too, if it werent for a small red journal falling into the right hands.
World of Dragons
It is said in the ancient histories Anwyn was a paradise once. In times long past Anwyn was sheltered in the Illyrian empire and it knew times of plenty. this is all but forgotten now by all save the elves. they ever cling to their past. sheltered behind the shields their forefathers created safe from the dragons and bohemath creatures that walk the world of Anwyn. the great city stretching across the entire elven kingdom is a testament to their lost power. it once shone like the brightest star in sunlight, but now every year brings more degradation and more of the city becomes uninhabitable. the elves long since lost the knowledge of how to maintain their city, they lost all the old ways in the dark times after Illyria fell.
now the lands of Anwyn are ruled by Dragon flame. the dark wizard and his flights of wyvern have begun to spread from his small kingdom of fear and threaten to overtake the three kingdoms.
If anwyn is to survive this coming darkness then the kingdoms must unite and fight for a better future. one for elves, humans, and dryad.
