Wardens of Iriolan
Then, something happened. The Great Crisis, but it was no crisis for us. The Warden society fell, and many died. After the Crisis, metahumanity crawled from their respective hiding places, where they had lived and thrived, hiding from the Wardens. Many of the Wardens themselves, those that didn’t die, ran to hide in the great caves, the deepest and darkest recesses of our world where not even Dwarves dare to go.
No Wardens have been seen for several ages, and they’ve mostly been forgotten, but the legends still live, with the warning of great omens coming before them, and great destruction in their wake.
