Welcome, jumper, to the Age of Wonders. In the ancient world, when the continents still had a different shape, the world was ruled by the elven Lord Inioch. From the great throne in the Valley of Wonders, his rule brought peace and justice to the entirety of the Blessed Continent. The world’s harmony was brutally shattered with the arrival of the humans. Uncaring for the existing traditions or lands held by the other races, the humans conquered the Valley of Wonders without mercy. Inioch and his court were slain, and from the conflict two new great alliances arose: the Keepers, led by the elves and Inioch’s daughter Julia, seek to restore peace and order through coexistence of all races. The Cult Of Storms, led by the dark elves and Inioch’s son Meandor, seek to annihilate everything tainted by human hands. Now, the Keepers and the Cult Of Storms are fighting a bitter war, with the humans and various other races caught in the crossfire. Brief lulls in the fighting exist from time to time, but the world has known nothing but conflict in the centuries since Inioch’s death. Unknown to all, the worst is yet to come. Alliances shift and new factions rise and fall, while a new, devastating conflict is about to erupt as Meandor experiments with necromancy and a bright star appears over the Valley of Wonders. The Cult of Storms is marshaling its forces for a new offensive, and the Keepers are seeking new allies for the conflict to come. In this realm, factions both local and continent-spanning are led by so-called Heroes: warlords and mages with skills that surpass that of the common folk. You are now one of these beings, and the people of the world will look to you for leadership, be it to protect the innocent or to eliminate all that stand before you. You appear in this world on the day that Queen Elwyn, mother to Julia and current leader of the Keepers, is assassinated on the island of Aldor by one of the Cult’s Stormlord leaders. You may spend 1000 CP to gain the strength and power you need to see the conflict to it’s end. Good luck.

Backgrounds: Drop-In You appear in this world with no additional memories, no history or fame and no allies or enemies. Independent You are one of the independent warlords that have not aligned themselves with the Keepers or the Cult Of Storms. You have the experience that comes with protecting a number of cities from neighboring factions and roving bands of bandits, but you have relatively few contacts beyond your local area of the world. Whether you pick a side or choose to remain neutral (or are even capable of such) in the coming conflict is up to you. Keeper You are one of the leaders of the organization known as the Keepers. Founded after the death of Inioch in order to undo the damage to the land and heal the rampant hatred following the original battles in the Valley Of Wonders, the Keepers advocate a philosophy of harmony and peace between all races. With the rising power of the Cult Of Storms, they see no other

    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.
