Into The Labyrinth
Before the Sundering, there existed one, singular planet; Earth.
Life on Earth was nearly wiped out. Humans unleashed a nuclear war that killed millions, leaving the survivors struggling in what was called the Age of Dust. Elves and dwarves, who had gone into hiding during the Renaissance, also suffered from what the humans had wrought with their science.
In this chaos, a mutant strain of humans emerged who were once again able to feel the Wave —that which maintains balance and order in the universe. Originally, there was only one group, the Sartan. As the Sartan became too powerful, the Wave shifted and the Patryn came to be.
These two races came into conflict over control and influence of the Mensch. Both came to think of themselves as gods, though the Sartan believed themselves to be the “good guys”.
