Welcome to the Bordermarches, a small area where the four major city-states in the region have formed a loose Alliance. Once a part of the Cerune Empire, the cities have been left to fend for themselves for the past 300 years. The world is a dark and dangerous place, and the cities and settlements are places of refuge against the wild.

In the northwest lies Aulivar, the dominant city. Its closest rival is Aelwyn in the northeast, where the greatest of magical items are crafted. Far south from Aelwyn, along the river Aronel, lies Lanaloth, the agricultural center of the Marches. Finally, the only seaport, Mirelenai, lies in the southwest part of the realm.
