The Dawn of Earum
A condensed history of Earum
Many years ago Earum was ruled by the Dragons. Lesser forms of life where terrified of the destruction the Dragon’s brought with them. There were so many of these powerful beings that, even with how massive Earum is, the Planet became crowded. This lead the Dragons to focus more on each-other rather than the lesser forms of life. This Dragon War gave the lesser life a fighting chance to hold on to their life. History is very unclear about some details but one day, as the lesser forms huddled together in fear, it is said that among the sounds of the Dragon War a quiet yet distinct “song” was heard. Little by little all noise stopped until all that remained was a final stretched note from this song. As the lesser beings came out into the light the last remaining signs of the War and the Dragon’s was nothing but the scorched landscape. No corpses left as a token, no sign of their saviors. Just each other and a vast world they could, finally, call their own.
By some, the date at which this “cleansing” happened was 3000 years ago. This time has advanced the beings of Earum significantly. Now called Uld-Kind these creatures have developed a concise language, they have created Kingdoms, they have created trade routs, and currency, and a religion has newly been formed dedicated to the supposed “Dragon Slayers”. This is the time at which your adventure will begin. What will you find in the ruins of the old days? What will you encounter on this massive world that has only a fraction explored? There is only one way to find out. Welcome, adventurer, to Earum.
