The world is mostly in ruins, in the aftermath of the Stupiding, the asteroid impact and the plagues.
It’s almost as if a great Doom fell upon the world!
Steadings are mostly small, isolated, and disconnected.
There are leftover artifacts from the old world here and there, from the religions of the Old Gods and their followers, but these are barely remembered among the people of today.
There are islands of civilization in the darkness, but these are relatively few and far between.
