The Undiscovered Country
A hundred years ago, the continent was at war. The forces of evil arose in the west. Taking over one after the other of the Westerlands, they massed a force in a great temple in order to strike against the forces of the Easterlands.
That strike never came. The magic-users of the East bent reality to their wills and created a giant and impenetrable wall of force – a Barrier which separates those countries who fell to the darkness from the rest of the world.
None of the wizards involved in this feat survived it.
Those innocents inside the Barrier at the moment of its erection were left to their fate.
