Out Of The Blue
The Third Kingdom
The Third Kingdom is the name given to the general current time period of Rin. The prior two kingdoms were both marked by the first and second Great Wars, and the subsequent social reconstruction. After the Second Great War, in which the elven emperor Dharlome was defeated by a coalition of the other races, humans and dwarves rose to prevalence as the dominant races. The dwarven king Othagar and the human king Aedrax rule jointly from the mountain city of Stormhold, where the two races are fully integrated amongst others. In the centuries following Dharlome’s defeat, a few elves have taken to wandering the world again and are no longer the subject of racism and prejudice. However, the vast majority of the elves still reside in secret, forest communities in the Faewood, which lines the northern-most part of the continent of Rin.
The Third Kingdom, in its nearly 400 years of existence, has been an era of peace and prosperity. Though society as a whole has advanced relatively little, wars are few and far between and few people want for food or shelter. The other continents, most especially the barbaric land of Savva look on Rin with envy. The rest of Ostholt does their best to emulate this most prosperous of lands, but with only little success in comparison.
