Campaign of the Month: January 2008
A Deadly Affair
Culture and Kingdoms
A basic primer on the history of the world, or at least what nations looked like a little over a thousand years ago. This helps players understand how the world came to be the way it is, and provides more subject matter for roleplaying and adventuring.
This page provides an overview of the major modern powers in the world, both local and across distant wastes and seas. While the Ancient Kingdoms page provides distant background, these are the places and cultures your characters should be familiar with, because they are probably from one of them.
