After the costly victory against Raymond the Black, the civilized world has changed dramatically, mirroring the physical changes upon the terrain after an epic battle. The Tide, the countless hordes of goblinoids and other monstrous creatures, has split. Once a collective cult beneath the will of Kin’varos, Goblinlord, members of the Tide have walked away from the path of violence. They seek to live peacefully with the other races of the world.
New races have risen from the ashes. Warforged, once the primary line of defense sent against the Tide, Warforged have successfully petitioned to be recognized as an independent race. Led by the mysterious Alpha, the Warforged community has established themselves as individuals, mindless weapons no longer.
A small percentage of the population are known as Gravetouched. Having been exposed to the grounded out energy from the destroyed Black Generals, these people acquire characteristics of a particular type of undead. The Black Generals, powerful creatures raised to function as the Commanders of Raymond the Black’s armies, diffused most of their energy into the land when they were destroyed.
