The Lands of Aris
Before the calamity Kuros was a lush land of rolling hills and its gnomish cities were places of industry and wonder. Today it is known as the “Dark Expanse”. Dark mists obscure the sun and prevent any trees from growing. Massive forests of fungi dominate the landscape. The gnomes who didn’t manage to escape mutated into twisted monsters.
The strange landscape of the Dark Expanse is a huge draw for wizards looking to do bizarre experiments as well as adventurers looking for remains of the once powerful civilization founded on gnomish techno-magic.
