Adventures in a Decaying Empire
Also known as “The Time of the Great Apocalypse”. The Apocalypse is a period of time where a few hundred years in the past, the world was torn asunder by great forces of sorcery and an invasion of creatures from beyond space and time, accompanied by the awakening of several Elder Gods and he weakening of the Veil between Worlds; it was literally an apocalyptic event, no lesser event will ever be referred to as an apocalypse again. The apocalypse all but destroyed the Empire and very nearly snuffed out civilization altogether.
The lasting effects of the apocalypse include, but are not limited to, the advent of Dungeons and the proliferation of species of a variety of creatures, including a number of sentient humanoids, in the realms of men.
