Of all the worlds in the universe, only Telara was constructed entirely of sourcestone at an unprecedented nexus of the elemental planes. Elemental energies that come into contact with sourcestone become tangible, and Telara, so heavily influenced by every element, boasts incredible diversity and wealth.
Telara’s resources are capable of providing its people endless prosperity, if only they could share the wealth and keep the world safe from those who would plunder it. Though Telara always knew its share of strife, the Blood Storm and the rifts brought entire new plateaus of horror, leading to the edge of oblivion.
Telara’s history is tumultuous to say the least. In ancient times, the dread gods of the Blood Storm used Telara’s proximity to planes to unleash elemental torments in hopes of plundering and destroying the world. Though they fell to infighting and were imprisoned, the Blood Storm’s creeping influence persisted through the ages, finally bearing fruit when a prince of the Mathosians did the will of Regulos, greatest of the reaver-gods.
The Ascended themselves are transplants from history, legends reborn to free Telara from the influence of the Blood Storm and the monsters of the planes. To assure victory in the future, wise heroes should study the past, to repeat the triumphs and avoid the tragedies of bygone ages. Read now the history of Telara, in the words of its people, in the archives stored here.
