Marai: The Long Dark
Years ago, the Shadree Empire was the great Human civilization which controlled much of a continent known as Surimora. However, it was struck by an apocalypse, and that continent was Sundered in two, creating the continents of Suranami and Moritanu. Naktu and Shen were both small colonies at the time of the destruction, and were suddenly forced to find their own way. There were also three groups of refugees that had survived, but they had to find new homes. The first two traveled to Ariphan and would later become the Habrin Empire and the Tribes of Terrinyes. The second asked for aid from their allies, the Tornagh Dynasty, and were given assistance in exchange for indentured servitude, and would later become known as the Tuusst.
Today, Moritanu is controlled mostly by the Orcashir, while Suranami is a continuous wasteland, holding all sorts of nightmares. The Order of the Cerulean Star had discovered the Staff of Daboure in some Shadree Ruins on Suranami, which is what catapulted them to stardom – as it was the first artifact recovered from that time. Prior to that, very few would travel to Suranami, and even fewer would return. It is, allegedly, a continent full of demons, drakes, nightmares, and unspeakable terrors.
