From the introduction:
The world of Thorin is steeped with legends of gods and wars and heroes. Beasts of strange and wondrous powers roam the lands and armies threaten war with every marched step.
This is the birth of the Renaissance and beauty is captured in art, song, and dance. These are the times of invention, of plague, of war, of art, science, and magik.
Thorin is a world immersed with sentient life of all forms. Among the populace are humans, Kanis, Phylinx, and goblin-kin. These are the days of chivalry, of knights and maidens, and of dragons and magic. As with all peoples, Thorin is divided.
