A Land Down Under
The City of Nocturné was once a thriving island on the edge of the Forgotten Sea. Devoid of temples and palaces its people shunned the gods, lords and kings favouring democracy and the rule of the majority. For seven hundred years peace ruled and Nocturné prospered.
That peace shattered the day the gods attacked the city.
After refusing to give up a child who was born without a shadow the gods tore open the ground and cast Nocturné into the chasm. Tens of thousands died in the tragedy known as the Cataclysm but those who survived rebuilt Nocturné from the rubble.
