Forged by wars and mythic conflicts, the World of Arith awaits those brave enough to search for meaning among the ancient ruins that dot the landscape.

In the Westlands, on the continent of Caldonia lies the Domain of Hawkmoon. Once the northernmost province of the Empire of Arvanor, Hawkmoon survived the political turmoil and succession wars that reduced the once great empire to a collection of city-states. Making peace with the Jendarr Barbarians to the north, the Dwarves of the Iron Hills and the Whitecrown Mountains to the east, and the elves, gnomes and eladrin of the Faded Forest, Hawkmoon has endured.
