Four centuries ago, the five kingdoms lived together in harmony across Undirras; within those kingdoms lived several, very different beings and clans. The Shun’Kaiya, a wise hexapod species, governed the trade and commerce in the southern regions of Skorra. Technologically advanced, the wolf-man clan known as the Val’Kar sought marvels and advancement within their kingdom of Baradwaythe. Serving as the guardians of Undirras within their home of Aryshya, the humans of the Sha’Ni clan and the reptilian Na’Lek lived together in amity and wielded the largest army and naval fleet. In the west were a group of islands making up the dragon kingdom of Carûbaen and it’s counterpart in the east, Vorsiénun. Despite the unwavering peace, a dark magician has manipulated a young dragon prince into stealing his father’s throne and forming the first empire Undirras has ever seen. With an army of fellow magicians and powerful dragons at his back, conquering the world would be an effortless endeavor; however, the other kingdoms are uniting against the imperial reign and resistance is imminent.
