Welcome to Aranna, jumper. A world of great beauty and, at times, great danger awaits you. The continent currently enjoys relatively peaceful times, but the grim specter of war hangs over the people of this world. Valdis, a prince of the Northern Reaches, is about to begin a great war after setting his sights on all of Aranna. Having found the mythical Sword Of Zaramoth, he now believes himself to be the reincarnation of the dark giant Zaramoth The Unmaker, who once ruled the lost Empire Of Stars but was slain for his cruel rule at the beginning of the Second Age. The monster’s evil lives on in his blade however, as the weapon was infused by the souls of both Zaramoth himself and those of the Utgard giants that forged it. With the power of the Sword at his command, Valdis seeks to repeat history and conquer the known world. With incredible personal strength, an army of brutish Morden that has risen to follow him, and the support of the terrifyingly powerful but secretive cabal of mages known as the Dark Wizards, Aranna has little hope to oppose his ambitions. Of course, there is still hope for a future free from the tyranny of the power-mad tyrant. The Azunites once beat Zaramoth himself using the shield of Azunai the Defender… though the shield was broken in the attempt and the power released in the clash caused the catastrophe known as the Great Cataclysm. Still, the power of the Azunites remains in this world, and even the Sword of Zaramoth may yet find its match. The consequences of such a confrontation may not all be good, however. For while the mad Valdis truly believes he is the second coming of Zaramoth himself, he is still but a mortal man… a man guided on his path by forces even he does not truly understand. You appear in this world shortly before Valdis begins his attack on Greilyn Isle, the first great battle of his quest to enslave all of Aranna. Whether you seek a life of peace away from the growing war or involve yourself in the conflicts to come, Aranna will be your home for the next ten years.

BACKGROUNDS Drop-in You arrive in this world as you were, with no fame or history, and no new memories of a previous life to influence you. Melee You were not born with a sword in your hand, but it’s close. From a young age you've found joy in exercise, and you’ve become strong and tough. Swordplay and brawling come natural to you, and you've become remarkably skilled at close- quarters combat as a consequence. Anyone can pick up an axe and hit someone, but you can make that weapon sing. Ranged You were gifted with great dexterity and a drive for exploration, and were often found climbing trees or sneaking into places you weren’t meant to be. Grown up, you’ve now turned your talents and hand-eye-coordination to more respectable purposes. Archery, throwing weapons and the more cunning aspects of combat are second nature to you.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
