The Hunt Neverending
The World of Arkaden
The world of Arkaden is as old as the Prime Material itself. The world was forged in the beginning by the combined divine will of the Council of the Dawnguard, a coalition of gods dedicated to the creation and protection of mortals. As a result of the divine attention that created the world, Arkaden has become the center stage for the most important events in the planescape. Arkaden's long history is broken up into several periods, delineated by the most important event of the era: the Awakening, the Spark Arcane, the Dawn War, the Regeneration, the Age of Banners, the Spark Technological, the Dragon War, and the Rending. This campaign takes place during the beginning of the Spark Technological. There are history books in libraries with more detailed information about each of these time periods, but the basic information about the timeline can be found in The Life and Times of the Prime Material. There are four main continents in Arkaden: Rusva, Eurozia, Ank'en, and Ithreon. There is also a rather large archipelago, the Dragonscar Isles, that one could classify as a fifth continent if one were feeling generous.
