The world of Thel is in flux. Civilisations have fallen, and the Gods no longer answer the prayers of most. In the north, the Aesyrtes Confederacy march against the Dwarves of Karnoth and the Free Cities of Orks and Man. Much of their land have fallen to combined Elven forces. But hope does persist - a rebellion has sprung up in the easternmost part of the Confederacy and pirates plague the waters around the islands. Kobald trappers have stopped the Elven advance at the mountains, and combined Human-Ork forces have won several victories. Elsewhere, the disappearance of the gods has caused consternation and debate in the centres of learning, whilst in the darkness, abandoned cities seem to stir again. Astra is entering a time of war of chaos. Welcome to the world of Thel, TNP's fantasy setting. It's been a long time in the works as anyone who has paid attention to the #ideas-workshop channel in the RP server can attest to. This is a fantasy RP setting set at an equivalent time to 1200 CE in real life. We have our three NPC nations - and we'll be adding more depending on demand - for character focussed rp and we will also be opening up part of the map for claiming nations. This is a different setting to the others on offer in TNP - with unique features attached to it. In following posts I'll be detailing some of our concepts and ideas.
