The land of Promise is usually a peaceful place- indeed, open war was forsaken by the first settlers, A group of 20 adventurers known as the First, who named the land ''Promise'' and colonised its races. The Races are The Humans, who prosper and multiply, The Fair, sometimes reffered to as Elves, The Stout, or Dwarves to humankind, The Grobi, or ''Goblins'', and the Sniffers, or ''Vermin.''
However, In Promise all is not well. Legends tell of ancient times when the 19th First, Urah, left the Circle of the First, promising an end to Humanity for thier crimes. The Legends speak of Urah's great war, leading the Grobi and the Sniffers in a revolt, sparking animosity in them by spreading humanitys nicknames for the races as derrogatory terms. The Sniffers and Grobi, as well as a few disgruntled Fair and Stout, marched against the Union of Humanity and the Fair, and war was Joined.
So many were slain in conflict, so many lives wasted. In the end, The Majority of the Stout Intervined, Joining the Union and crushing the Rebellion. It is said Urah himself was slain, but rejected once again from the Circle and sent to live his days in the underworld, as a Daemon, not a God. Now, 2000 years later, Promise has seen conflict again. A town has been rasied to the ground, destroyed by monsters unseen before in Promise. Now, a group of Adventures, together by chance, have been asigned the task of going through the dungeon the creatures came from, and rooting out the source of the trouble.
(You start in a Tavern, run by a Sniffer called ''Fink''.)
