Welcome to Vastus

Coastal tribes of humans, elves, minotaur and hobgoblins have their world upset when high elves from another world loot the astral plane and crash the bones of a skeletal fist from and astral titan across the land.

New islands sprout, vast craters are torn, leaving deeply buried magical rubble with an enchanted mineral, Ruklaf, that aids teleportation and planar travel. This meteoric hail gashes the planar fabric of Vastus, permitting other-worlders opportunities to invade this previous hidden world.

These foreign high elven conquistastors colonize various areas along the west coast of Vastus, attempting to stake out the obvious Ruklaf craters. Ruklaf spreads chaotic magic into the surroundings while the high elves displace the hobgoblins and banish the wood elves. Monstrosities destroy the southern naga city of Danil. Dragons start wars over Ruklaf. The minotaur of Danil bay become seafaring refugees. As the destruction settles, evidence of a high-magic economy emerges.

A thousand years and three wars later, the 1000 leagues of coast line from Sing’jar in the north to Danil bay in the south are now a complex web of trade and intrigue. Ahoy!

Burati Bay and Upstream

The next largest city east, upstream of Burati bay, is Ontishian. Just like Burati is divided into north and south halves by the river, so is Ontisian divided, but ruled by a single council. The curves of the Burati river provide a very reasonable marina for ships to berth at Ontishian. The most lucrative trade […]

Welcome to Bone Marrow, Magical Emporium!

Near the marina of Burati bay, one of the many warehouses is painted a nearly brown color of orange. The paint is flaking off, exposing dark cedar planks below. Brighter patches of orange paint cover up what one might assume are charred spots on the siding. Swinging from a cast bronze brace above a very […]
