A Time for Heroes
The Ancients (Aasimar) are a race of vaguely celestial beings that had ruled much of the land surrounding the great inner sea. The Ancients ruled for a thousand years and were receding to Sol’seryn, their ancestral lands, when the power of the tiefling lords became too great. The Ancients wracked the land with devastating magic, destroying many of the tiefling cities and sinking them beneath the waves in a cataclysmic event called The Great Sundering. Celestial forges in their vassal lands to the south sent new warriors into the fight, as the first warforged emerged from the great arsenals of the Aasimar to wage war on the demon lords. The brutal war quickly resolved, the ancients slowly left their conquered lands. No Aasimar have been seen in a thousand years of more.
