Our Material Plane
Referred to as the “Blood Continent” by some, the island continent of Antenora is a divided and vicious place. When the continent was called Volumnia, it housed two great nation-states: Voland and Wygrievia. However, upon the rise of York, the New God of Undeath and Secrets, in Yr 600, his agents dismantled the cities from within and combined their populace into one nation under a figurehead named Atlas. The new nation of Atlas was ruled by a supreme monarch also titled the Atlas, supported by a highly efficient secret police—the Thanes.
York’s stronghold is said to rest in the northwestern point of the continent, beyond the frozen wasteland. Also an effective power and ally of Atlas is the Malebolgian Kingdom, a collective of barbaric orcs and goliaths presided over by the Dread Lord Ictis, a figure few tell of, but who also holds power in the blasted factory district of Atlas.
Two sanctuaries exist in this continent, cut off either by the ruling powers or through their own desire for safety. Mysterious spirits of significant power hold the Wooded Wall and the Shrouded Hills away from the influence of York or Atlas.
During a silent coup in Yr 712, the Thanes wrested complete power from the Atlas. Their military council now govern the state. Also, a feared ex-arch of York is said to assert the undead god’s will on the continent. Little more of him is known than his name, Mulligan.
