[Information] Ashes Lore - What we know so far
I’ve combined some of the lore elements we’ve been given so far into a brief overview. This is subject to change as more information is provided.
Long ago, the world of Verra was besieged by a great calamity. A corruption befell the land, twisting and perverting every facet of nature, spawning hideous beings of every description; from troll-like creatures to towering behemoths. Nothing escaped its touch.
Granted by divine intervention, your ancestors fled Verra through towering gateways, seeking refuge in a place void of magic.
Soon after the exodus, the gateways dimmed and became dormant. Centuries turned to millennia, burying them beneath myriad calamities. Over eons, history became legend, then even the great legends were at last forgotten.
Vast expeditions were sent through the gateways to discover the beautiful and perilous magical realm of your ancestors.
You arrive in the world of Ashes to explore, rebuild and repopulate your place of origin. Ancient treasures and wondrous adventures await those who dare to disturb the dark remnants of evil that inhabit this land.
