Between the violent shudders of volcanoes and the dread rumble of land-shearing quakes, life is hard for the people of Ur’weh. In spite of the vicious grandeur of their home, humans have thrived in the shade of canyons, the swells of great rivers, and the wounds of mountains. Empires have been wrought of bronze, sand, stone, and iron. The lives of great cities stretch beyond living or written memory, each achievement eclipsing the last, only to be buried beneath the dusty epochs. While nature never tires, antiquity never forgets.
