This Wiki is the repository of all knowledge relating to the mythical Kingdom of Emberglow.
It is a kingdom rich in custom and culture, with a history dating back thousands of years. In a fantasy world where the Elves are gone, leaving only their half-mortal descendents behind, Emberglow thrives on the deep bond between the three races of Men, Dwarves and Elves.
Here are also documented the adventures of several heroes as they face a strange and dark time for Emberglow, a time with no name (yet) in which strange gates open into a hellish realm of mystery and evil. As our heroes uncovered a hidden underworld lurking beneath their paradise, they stumbled upon one of the best-kept, and darkest, secrets of Emberglow's past.
Nothing is certain but this: Emberglow will never be the same again.
