This world is set in a fictional world, where every possible mythical creature and land exist, hidden within the normal world. It appears mainly peaceful for the moment, but there is threat of war.
The witch city of Oherin was attacked by armies of an evil overlord, and although defeated, their leader is reputed to have survived and become more evil and twisted in the process. Shortly afterwards, the city's leading families were massacred by enemies from within, and the few survivors were forced to go into hiding. They fled into the wilderness, where the threat of a global war was growing.
