The great city of Xesokos used to be the seat of the Arcane Empire. This civilization, ruled by a Wizarding circle, used to keep the peace between the different factions that inhabit the land, but after the very ground around the city was magically pulled out, the empire crumbled, many of its towns and people destroyed in the aftermath. This caused the land to fall into bloody conflict and open war.
