Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
The world of Khorvaire is bound by a golden ring and surrounded by twelve moons. It’s the intersection of thirteen planes of existence, which shift in and out of alignment. It’s a place where magic has been harnessed as a tool—used to build cities, to sail ships through the skies, to create both wonders and weapons.
The world is recovering from the Last War that turned old allies into bitter enemies and destroyed an entire nation, leaving terrible scars behind. Crime and corruption lurk in the great cities of Khorvaire. Sinister fiends influence the dreams of the unwary. Human greed and ambition may prove more dangerous than any devil or demon.
For eons, the High Heavens and the Burning Hells have waged an endless war against each other to dominate the whole of creation in what is known as the Great Conflict. Yet, neither side has ever been victorious, as each side always finds one way or another to change the tides of the war to their favor.
The Archangel Inarius was tired of the endless battle so he decided to create a world where he and other similar-minded Angels and Demons could live together peacefully. This world became known as Sanctuary, and along with it the Worldstone was created in order to hide Sanctuary from both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells.
