The World of Verthal
Welcome to the Eighth Age of Verthal. I have been asked to write this ‘tour guide’ of sorts for your perusal so you may better understand the world that you will be living in for many, many years to come. I am known to most simply as, The Keeper of Secrets, and it has been my blessing and my curse to live for many a century watching and remembering the lives of men so I may educate others of our history. Indeed, I have lived since the Great Breaking and was witness first hand to the devastation wrought by Mikel Andros’ hand. The damage caused by that one man’s actions have changed the very course of our world and indeed, even its very name.
I will be addressing various facets of life in this new world. We will look at how the races have learned to live together and how they have warred with each other.
