Pantheon of Heroes
1000 years ago, Alleria was the most powerful and prosperous nation the world had ever seen. Vast wealth, burgeoning new technology, military superiority, science, freedom, art, a utopia on the earth according to all stories and current knowledge. But war came to Alleria, and after years of fighting the Allerians lost all but a few coastal cities in the far west to the edge of Oceanus, the Sea that Never Ends.
Allerians lived in a shade of their former glory for 700 years, living off of the leavings of stories of their former glory. One day, the Jian Empire arrived on their shores in ships that could somehow cross Oceanus. They arrived without bloodshed, and instead acted as benefactors and great teachers in the 250 years since their arrival. They created the Reclaimers, an army which helped rebuild and rekindle the nationalistic fervor that caused miles and miles of eastward expansion into the Alleria of Old.
The land is littered with cities forgotten by time and humanity, overgrown or turned into monstrous lairs, still with promise of hidden treasure and wealth as well as adventure and stories to tell. Maps can be made and magic of old brought back for the glory of Alleria!
