In the third cycle magic was torn from the continent of Norehlith.
In the fourth we began to rebuild.
Welcome to Norehlith. The faded lands.
The world is healing from the scars left behind from the Fade. In this time wizards rebuild their towers, rogues delve into forgotten tombs, and parties of adventurers seek their fame in the ruins of old. This is Norehlith. Where magic has only just begun to return from its fated slumber.
However not all traces of magic have been forgotten. From the majestic white stone walls of Alresh-Thel to the great rift, the effects of old magic can still be seen. However as magic returns people grow uneasy. They do not easily trust users of the arcane arts out of fear of a second fade.
