General known world history
The World known as Peroan (Per-own)
About 2,000 years ago, a small meteor (known around the world as a chunk of a star) hit the planet. This wiped out a large portion of the population. Those who wanted to leave the Island that it was going towards did so in many fleets. Only one entire fleet survived the voyage across the ocean. Since then, the kingdom from the island has split into many kingdoms and has minor strife between each other. For the most part, people live in peace with each other. Most of the races in DnD (Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, and so on.) Are believed to be either myths or to have died off in the Cataclysm. The truth isn’t that far off. Most of the other races where decimated as much as, if not more then, the human race. Few times have any from these races been seen, and the few times most have, it was thought of as a fluke or an illusion by some mage. Despite the lack of these other races being seen, there is ample proof that some other races lived before the humans settled the current area of the world. There are many wonders that defy logic and reason, The Floating Island is likely the most popular and hardest to believe. That aside, there is much to do to finish rebuilding the empires.
