The Heroes of Astoria
The continent of Kelthornis was the home of a long lost empire, that is now mostly forgotten, but is now covered by arid deserts and harsh wastelands. Only nomadic tribes of various humanoids and other desert races inhabit this desperate living environment. There are no governments or nations established on this continent, only ancient ruins buried under the sands of time. Many excavation sites spring up from time to time to uncover lost records or clues from the past, only to perish from the unforgiving conditions of the surrounding land, or even from the equally brutal inhabitants.
