Renerith was once a plane ruled by might spirits, the Great Ones. The mana of plane itself feeds of these great spirits, which they used to their
own advantage and to empower their followers. They enslaved the lower races and bid that they
fight for them in great wars to prove who had the greater power. While some of the Great Ones Perished in these wars,
millions of humans, elves, and other lower races perished at the bidding of their masters. The great slagmasters and ironworkers,
who built the great cities and weapons of war, forged something so terribly powerful from the souls of thousands of sacrificial offerings
that it could destroy all the Great Spirits themselves. With no way to wield such great power the metalworkers built a great Titan and enfused
it with the souls, bidding it to release them from the tyranny of their overlords. A battle underwent that ended with the death of every spirit, save
for the 6 most powerful, cunning, and resourceful. Their power much subdued by the loss of their kin, they no longer could maintain their hold
over the lesser races. The souls spent, the great titan went to rest in the mountains until it can be awakened again by the great slagmasters.
The great priests and clerics of the skywatchstill pray to their great spirit, blinded by tradition and hope for a better future.
The Ohlon, masters of arcane wizardry, formed an academy to learn how to harness the magic from other sources and combine it into powerful potions.
The Na'Drik necromancers search for immortality. Be it eternal life or eternal undeath, eternal rest is abhored.
The great slagmasters are known for their great works automatons and their role in the vanquishing of the Great Ones. Despite their great achievements,
they are distrusted by the rest of the world for the unwilling sacrifice so many made on their behalf.
The Nysteria bookkeepers keep ancient texts of the old battles between the spirits. They believe that they can extract the power of the ancient spirits who lay
in the ground, rotting.
What all these groups have in common is their use of potions. When the ancient spirits died, their bodies infused the earth, the animals, and all the plants with potent magic.
By combining these powerful ingredients, alchemists are able to brew potions of great power.
Something else of note, this set is focused on INSTANTS. There are no sorceries in this set.
