"Taloria, after the First Crisis, has had a long, bloody, and sordid history. It has suffered threats both political and supernatural in nature, with scopes spanning from single cities to the entire world. Power struggles, wild magics, and the constant threat of the Haze itself should by rights have left the populous in a constant state of paralyzing fear, and yet the indomitable spirit of the Talorians holds strong."

-- Gaspar Welms, Historian, Harstole
