From time before written word or song Men, Elves and other races that coexisted peacefully had inhabited the land of Morgorne. The race of man had drawn their boundaries and struggled amongst themselves, but were governed by the laws of the Guardians, an ancient race from which man came. Eventually the great warrior and eventual king Halbren brought most of the Southern lands under a peaceful rule. The king, being a halfelven, ruled for almost 200 years before succumbing to age and treachery from his court. His son, Ginsbard, was installed as a puppet king manipulated by the counselors.
Around this time there came a new sect of priests who worshiped a different set of Gods. Gods that called for the destruction of any magics other than theirs. The elves, from time forgotten had known the magic of the dragons. Though not practiced for centuries as being too powerful, the priests, through the King, called for the elves to be destroyed. The bond between the Elves and Man was being severed. The forces of the dark were gaining a foothold and if they became victorious, the land would be plunged into such chaos that none would survive.
