The Third Age
Folsland (The Old Lands)
Dark and desperate times have always roared their heads in Folsland, and they will again. In the recorded history of The Old Lands, two civilizations have risen and fallen. Vampires have waged war, demons have been summoned and the Gods have intervened upon many occasions.
The general feel of the land is not one of happiness and hope. There is a dark, pale, strange magic over the lands. Many travelers have claimed to have seen horrible monstrosities on the road. The educated citizens wonder if it is born of ignorance or of a terrifying reality that always creeps outside the safety of their walls.
Many records from prior times exist in sacred libraries, ruined cities and in the homes of nobles. Though many citizens can read, very few are able to interpret the ancient texts of ages past. Most citizens are content to live and die in their villages.
