The Age of Balance
the Great Cataclysm
While many of the facts are uncertain, and all accounts are highly disputed, the general consensus regarding the Great Cataclysm is that it originated in Aramark’s Gate. Radical followers of Yorast provided the catalyst for a chain reaction of major destabilization. This chain of events was made self-perpetuating by the cosmic imbalance that the Free Peoples and Aramark’s Gate nations had allowed to grow.
A group of heroes, hailing from Ragton, eventually put the world to balance by offering themselves as sacrifices in the name of order.
The Great Cataclysm led to radical changes in the Isle of Yorast’s geography and society. Cities were swallowed up by the sea, utterly destroyed, or, in one case, moved across the continent.
