The Golden Age of Vashtar and it's demise
In the Golden Age several thousand years ago a great civilization rose from the continent of Vashtar. These Vashtarians lived in a long term of peace time. In the time of peace the Vashtarians excelled in the arts, study and use of magic. Their civilization was built on the large treasures that Vashter held within its earthly halls.
However one day, the earth shook, the world rang with an earpiercing scream and the continent dissapeared. Those lucky enough to survive the cataclysm, wrote about the event, had no idea what was the cause of the ‘Ruin of Vashtar’, wether it be earthly, science, or magic.
