ABOUT THE SETTING
Welcome to Stormtalons, the rich-tapestry epic fantasy setting created by the Archmage that gave us The Forgotten Realms®, Ed Greenwood. The world of Asmer, where the Heirophar, ruler of Skalaunt, seeks to gain control of all magic and the deeply religious country of Rheligor opposes him no matter the cost. Where the dwarves of Khaormont vie with Nornar Mining, A Stormtalons Company for the vast resources of the Wyrmspire Mountains. Where ancient Dragons sleep deep beneath the earth with only legends and myth telling of them. Where elves live far, stranded or hidden, to escape those grasping for magic, power, or both. Where the lawless city-port of Tanthalas and the Firefall only have a single rule; you only get to have it if you can keep it. Where the reptilian uolori live in the hot jungles of the Yacathan, and brute dragons soar the skies over Alarstarn. Discover the Stormtalons, walk the grounds of Asmer, and lose yourself in the mists!
