The world you come from was not always steeped in blood…once, it was beautiful. The great Southlands, and the endless west were not always ruled by tyrant wizards and mad king-priests. Once, the land was alive, and people were free. You see, long ago, all people of the world basked in the light of justice and civility, and that light shined down from the throne of the great Tein Ming Empire. Great spell ships soared across the sky…the spirits of the land watched over men, so there was no calamity. All men were of one nation, so there was no war. The gods were just and merciful. There was no sickness and no one went hungry. The world was in peace and prosperity. This time shall never return to us…but there is a place…the caravan merchants who brave the old trade roads to the east each year say it’s called Yunshan.
