The Golden Sands of Irukhtir
The Gods of Men
Three thousand years ago, the race of men was saved from a great cataclysm. The world was dying, and the gods collected the faithful and led them through a doorway from that world to this one. Not everyone was saved, and to this day, many people offer prayers for the souls of those lost in the Exodus.
Mankind spread, and slowly filled the lands with nations. Along the way, they came upon the native people of this world, the Duhorov and the Quista. Those races have their own gods, and the teachings of most churches specifically state they are to be unmolested, and cared for by their own deities.
