Two years after God Fall and people are just starting to dig themselves out of the rubble. Long, difficult winters have passed, but this year's crop has finally come in, better than the last. Every village and town has had to fend for themselves during this time of survival. If starvation and cold hasn't done many in, the evil lurking in the night has.
This is a time for heroes. Most of the old heroes have fallen fighting the evil that came out of the darkness during the first days of God Fall. You are all that is left to stand between the darkness and humanity. Others may stand with you, many races, even some that at one time might have been your enemy. These are difficult times indeed.
May the gods be merciful.
