The World of Aetolia

Explore A Vast World


For hundreds of years, Aetolians thought that their continent, dubbed Sapience, was the only land mass on their planet. They fought among themselves over religious differences, petty squabbles, and the ever-useful resource ‘ylem’. Then, flying death machines filled the air, piloted by malicious Dreikathi, and Aetolians discovered a new world: Albedos. Some on this mysterious continent were open to learning their ways, and embraced them cautiously. Others sought only to subjugate the Sapient nations and do them harm. Now, as the Albedi pantheon of Gods stirs from a long and terrible slumber, those with their eyes to the future have plenty to fear from the new lands.
