Stars and their courses
After the fall of the elvish empire two empires formed, Asgara and Tellus. Asgara is a empire built on the shores of a great river, with its capital Areopolis, on the delta that drains into the abyss.
The country is ruled counsel who are descended from the original rebel leaders. The leaders are all racist against fey kind for the way they were treated during the elvish rule. Recently a minor uprising has begun to give all sentient people full rights.
Unknown to the general population, the Asgara leadership is being manipulated by a Medusa from the New Land who unlocked the secrets of the Dwarf gates.
