History of Istaria Edit
- Main article: History of Istaria
The history of the world of Istaria can be a confusing one. A great deal of information about many of the races that populate the world or that populated the world has been lost under the oppressive weight of the Withered Aegis. The general feel throughout the world about history is summed up in the phrase "why study the past when there may not be a tomorrow?" While this may be the feeling of a great percentage of Istarians, it is still important to understand the world and the events that have shaped it.
To grasp the full history of Istaria, one will need to understand that each race has its own unique history apart from one another. While each race has a different history, there is one commonality - the Withered Aegis. The Withered Aegis united the living in a common goal, and while racial disputes do still exist they pale in comparison to the struggle against the undead.
