Approximately two generations ago, the world of Averen awoke. What had caused everyone to blackout, nobody quite knows. It could have been a great natural disaster that shook everyone to the point of amnesia. Or it could be an act of the gods. Regardless, what the people do know is that the past is a complete blank. Cities were standing, waiting to be inhabited, and roads were ready to be traveled, although no one knows how they were built or when.

Today, relatively no law exists. Everyone looks out for themselves, and greed rules the world. There is plenty of treasure left from the world as it was before the Great Sleep, ready to be taken by willing adventurers.

Our heroes start in the port city of Portsmouth on the western coast of Averen.
