On the floating continents of Jaanus and Hanuu, the forces of Order and Chaos clash over the fate of Vucuut.
In a time long lost to memory, the parent Gods of Order and Chaos manifested themselves onto the material plane and waged a mighty war. The massive planar and arcane forces wielded in this war literally ripped the land from the sea. The outcome of this great war of the gods was ultimately a stalemate, with the powers of the Gods contained in three separate parts of an intensely powerful magical item, which ancient scholars named The Hand of the Gods. The residual effects of this war allows the populated continents of Jaanus and Hanuu to remain suspended a hundred miles above the now trackless oceans on the planet’s surface.
Now, a millennia later, forces of evil have rediscovered the power of the parent gods and are beginning to gather forces to wage a new war.
