Welcome to the world of Ginior, a land of thick forests, vast plains, and small pockets of civilization spread throughout from coast to coast. To many, this world would be a perfect haven to live a peaceful and prosperous life, that is if it were not for the Everblight. An ever present scar upon an otherwise idyllic paradise. A swath of barren landscape stretching across the northern half of the continent. The land of the Everblight is notable for its almost complete lack of vegetation and life. It is said that the Everblight was caused by demons, some say it was the result of an age long conflict between the gods. There are none alive who can attest the truth, all that remains is a grim reminder upon the land in the aftermath of that cataclysm.
For centuries the Everblight has been contained by the stalwart wall and magical barrier that spans the border between the tainted and untainted lands of the northern reaches. Constructed in the aftermath of the war by the eight Archons and the Immortal Hestial, it has stood as a testament that evil and corruption will never consume that which is good in the world. Reports have been coming in from the Blighted Vigil as of late that the corruption has shown signs of strengthening and that it may even spread past the barrier. Many believe this to be impossible however those with more wisdom caution that this is the first sign of the return of the Wither King.
