The world of Ayeron was ravaged by a war between the classical elements. Several large continents swim in a trackless sea, and countless islands and atolls hold the margins of inhabitants that live on the world. Though open conflict has been gone for many years, tensions still lie close beneath the surface, and it would take little for the world to erupt again with violence.
To the north is the Fire Lands, with a militaristic culture and aggressive expansionism. To the south lie the archipelagos of the Water People. Scattered across tall mountains everywhere live the Air Folk, reclusive and rumored to have connections to the Feywild. And under the earth, sometimes deep enough to bypass the oceans, are the subterranean Earth Kin, whose dealings with the inhabitants of the Shadowfell earn them enmity and loathing of the surface folk.
