Puppets of the Shadow
Ardette is the World's Truename, handed down by scholars and sages since time immemorial. The Lorekeepers of Terendue were the first to know the Name of the Created World, but even when Blessed Dalthir first heard the name from his Lady, the Name was ancient beyond mortal ken of time.
Ardette is a world of great seas, with only a few great continents. In the West Reach, one great supercontinent lies, called Ur-Lydd. It is the home of the most ancient legends and kingdoms. Roughly two thousand years ago, in the East Reach, the sister continents of Vaern in the north and Daelyn in the south were discovered by humans fleeing the dynasty wars of Bael Turath and Arkhosia. The explorers made peaceful contact with dwarves and eladrin they found there, and settled the fertile plains of the Myr.
