A Land United by History

A priestess of the Church of Light kneels in front of a statue of Solea Splendis, patron of mercy, and prays for the good health of her town. Just outside the temple, a feather-haired phoelarch walks back home from the general store ignoring the threatening stares of the others.

In an Aeros casino built right on the Bay of Talons, a tiefling smiles as he wins another round of magaz while onlookers shake their heads thinking the tieflings have enough money as it is. Down the street in the same city, a masked Jack watches members of the Red Rose Guild pick the pockets of unknowing travelers. The Jack will make sure they are brought to justice.

A fox-faced kamik farmer in Brehr tends to his field making sure his crops are well enough to be sold to Jaress. He stops to rest and looks up as a Lindblum airship soars by overhead.

A People Divided by War

Nora has had peace for over thirteen centuries, but that has all shattered with the outbreak of the Severing War. Nora is in need of heroes. Heroes to help stop the battles that rage and claim lives of good men. Heroes to face the monsters that use the war as a perfect distraction for their nefarious ends. Heroes to save the land from itself.

This is the Dawn of a New Age. The Age of Heroes.

Dawn of a New Age (DoNA) is a custom setting for Dungeons and Dragons. It began as a Forgotten Realms clone around 2003 and has since become its own unique setting. The information presented herein is meant to be the most up to date information as it occurs in game.

Where to Start?

If you're new to the setting or want to refresh your knowledge; first go adventuring, then read the major sagas and if you want to know about the sweeping history of Nora, check out the timeline. Of course, while not all of the pages are filled, they are being constructed and expanded constantly.

The purpose of this page is to allow knowledge about the game and the stories found within to be shared without tons of paperwork. In time, this wiki will be record to many unique features of Nora.

This wiki takes a measured non-mechanical approach to the world in order to cater to all game systems. However, if you are playing one of the below systems, setting rules have been presented, in whole or in part, in these portals. If you have any further questions, discuss them with your game master or visit the forum.

All the art presented in the web-page is owned by the individual artists. I have used this art with all due respect and admiration for a gift of artistry that I do not possess.
