Panton Nihilus is a new world. It remains mostly unexplored by the races of man. Magic flows freely, and takes the form of nearly everything, from rivers, to trees, to the ground you tread upon. Though few know what lurks in the places off the map, there exist grand stories. Stories of beasts so large, one might think them to be a mountain. Or even an entire mountain range… Stories of great plains where the magic lifts rocks to float in the air and brings the stone to life. Stories of artifacts once owned by the gods. Some bring wealth to the bearer… others bring only misfortune.
In the town of Crossroads, there lives a man by the name of Jurich Woodsmith. He is the son of a paper maker, and has an offer to those who are as smart as they are strong, and as strong as an ox. He dreams that one day, the entire world will be mapped and anyone can find the great beauties of the realm they live in. Not only that, but people should be able to travel there safely.
Roads will be paved, maps drawn, and monsters slain. All for the dream of the paper maker’s son.
