Zendross is our homeworld, our homebrew world, that is developing and building as our adventurers go along. The are three main components to this vast land, so far.

The Viridian Sea

This vast body of water is patroled by the Elvish Armada who tries to keep the peace throughout Vendross. It is home to incredible creatures, undersea empires, and hordes of pirates. It is the last refuge of the free, where those who don’t want to obey the rules run to.

Aurial – The Cursed Island

Aurial was cursed by a cadre of mages hundreds of years ago defending the island from a mad demi-mage of immense power. To stop him they cursed magic itself and caused his own magic to kill him but magic in the land remains wild, unpredictable and dangerous. Any magic may hurt or harm, or worse. Most people on this island fear magic and kill magic using folk. People who leave Aurial carry the curse with them and are hated pariahs if they are found elsewhere in Vendross.

Lillisian Empire

Stretching from the Bentmis Ice Fields of the far north to the far south of The Burned Lands, this mighty elvish empire has ruled for over 400 years. A coalition of all elven races quickly rose to dominant an entire continent. Brutally, they keep the peace and suppress any uprising, any defiance, and quickly move to erase problems from existence. Gradually, over hundreds of years, they eliminated most non-elvish priests of any power, greatly diminishing the might of clerics throughout the empire. Only mere acolytes of any religion other than elvish are allowed to keep their lives and religion going.

With teleporting shock troops, armies of high-level battle forged clerics, the elvish empire has a stranglehold on the entire continent. Though not the seas, and only loosely control the farthest reaches of the empire. It’s to these locations those who would be free, escape to. Rogues, pirates, free-creatures, and those that cannot be contained live on the edges and beyond of this empire. Constantly hunted, continually chased, and ultimately free to pursue their dreams.
