Once a lush, fertile and beautiful land, Wisteria now lays on the brink of destruction. Where once there lay peace and prosperity, now there lays the bitter reminder of death: The Rot. The world is dying, consumed by an unstoppable, unrelenting power that no mage can freeze, no divine might can smite and no seer who could have ever seen it coming. Whole forests of trees have withered and died, islands have flung themselves into the roiling seas and the native animals have all but gone insane. There is no safety in numbers anymore, and much of the world’s population in the first ten years was wiped out. Those who live now endure a constant daily struggle to survive under the ever-present threat of annihilation.
