And thus our story begins. Nearly one hundred years after the wall in the south emerged, the three countries have had quite the journey in their separate ways. An air of change - both positive and negative - hangs over the lands.-WINTER-
Aquavia's technology has always been stable. Their advancement is grand and the separation between the trade city and the capitol beneath the water grows further apart as class systems become more and more apparent. Their economy is strong, though some wonder if the twin gods ruling above them work as one.. or moreso as two.
Hryst's people are struggling and in distress. Their resources and harvests were bountiful and plenty in the spring and summer months - though with the harsh blizzards as of late, the waters have frozen and ships that dare navigate what little water is left have often come up missing.. They are losing money as well as the health of the crops they've stored - not being able to gain profit from their regular trades.

Domahn Tir's borders have become less travelled over the years. Some wonder whether Orik has become silent.. or if He sees no want to be a part of the world as a whole - and only to shut his own people away for protection. Isolation is a very current key issue. Goods still circulate about, but little fact has been heard of the nation by word of mouth.. only rumors.
