Background

Ancient dragons, asleep for millenia, have awoken and wreaked their havoc on Tyria. It is now but shadow of its prior form. The human numbers have heavily decreased, as Ascalon is torn apart by the Charr and Kryta coasts are heavily flooded by the dragons. Only a few of the previously flourishing dwarves remain. It is now the Charr and the Norn who dominate most of Tyria, with the Asuras spread throughout the cities. Cantha and Elona have been isolated from the remainder of the world by the dragons. The Canthans, now under the control of successor emperor Kisu, have sealed their borders. However, Elona already has its own problems; it is being destroyed by the return of Palawa Joko, the undead lord.
