Legends of The Old Kingdom
The Land Below
Very little is known of The Land Below. Once upon a time, the gnomes waited in their networks tunnels and caverns, watching us tear ourselves apart. 300 years ago, in the year 900, the gnomes emerged from their underground kingdom and brought a new age of technology that changed our world forever. Very few surface dwellers have been allowed to enter The Land Below, though a great many cities were abandoned when surface dwellers settled on top of networks of gnomish tunnels. Monsters quickly inhabited these areas, or they were re-purposed as cellars, dungeons, and sewers. The Arcane Academy has studied many of these abandoned settlements, but found little new information.
