~:[Welcome to Avandaria]:~
Avandaria... a world of magic and adventure just waiting to be explored! In the beginning there were animals living in what one might call peace. Then a meteor struck the planet releasing all of the pent up magic energy hidden just below the surface. All of the animals within the radius of the explosion were turned human. Mostly human that is . They still retained animal like features and abilities. All the carnivores could recall was a deep seated hatred of the herbivores and all the herbivores could recall was a fear of the carnivores. Over time they went from barbarians scuffling in the dirt to vast warring kingdoms. Truces were formed and broken, wars were fought, blood was shed, and so the cycle continues.
Our story takes place in the Falhine Crater, the place where one of the original meteors struck and where ancient magic is closest to the surface. The city of Irin is located inside the crater. Irin is an herbivore kingdom and is dependent on the traveling merchants who occasionally stop there on the way to Arandos. Irin was founded by merchants who made their halfway camp into a permanent home. Since the beginning of post meridian monster attacks have been much more frequent and merchants coming from farming settlements have been few and far between. While most people who live in Irin have their own small gardens where they grow vegetables, food is running low and tensions are running high.
Natural disasters have been happening much more frequently than normal and the monsters that are formed from leftover magic are growing stronger. Some people believe that this is signaling the end of the world thus the name 'post meridian' whereas other, much more sensible people say that the planet is just going through some sort of cycle. whatever the reason though it has everyone on edge and wondering where the next disaster will strike...
The grand opening!
