Brought forth out of the darkness of the void was the world of Kyme. Created in the battle between the gods and the elements against beings outside of reality, in this strife the prime plane was formed. Eons passed and out of primal existence rose civilizations and peoples, one supplanting the other for dominance of the world. At last the humanoid races united against the dragons that had ruled Kyme for an age.
This war precipitated the conflict to come, the victory over the dragons was short lived, as the Vampiric Empire of Duemonte and the Human Hierocracy of Synstasia drew the rest of the races of Kyme into a War of Extinction. Only through the intervention of an arcane faction comprised of the different races was the bloodshed ended. A tenuous peace has endured with the establishment of the city of Arkyme, orbiting the Elemental Divide which now serves as a neutral city for all races and factions.
