The Seven Sacrifices
The World of Avendal
The world of Avendal was once Diverse and sprawling. Many Races and Kingdoms crisscrossed its surface. Magic was known and used readily and there were even some Kingdoms who had begun to Tinker with mechanical devices, some of great complexity. This was all before the Black Tide. Now the World is a husk, its ground black, its sky a roiling Black cloud which bears a constant downpour of corrupted rain. Only the City of Bastion, once known as Ardrinur, remains. Wrapped in a barrier of Holy power it is the last habitable place on the Planet. At its gates the Otherworldly horde still crashes endlessly, screaming and keening to corrupt the land even further. Its people are many but tired and strained. The land bears little and the people are hungry. Many do not know how much longer they can Hold on. Only the hopes of their Kings Ascension keeps them going knowing that he will banish the Demons once he becomes a god.
