The Gateway Campaign
Human Subrace- Asariyan
Race- The Asariyan
Description- This very ancient people came through the great gate at Gateway City about two centuries after the Great Destroyer devastated the world. These desert dwelling people had found a gate in their old world. The world they lived in had been slowly drying up and year by year the land had become less able to sustain life on the scale of the Asariyan culture. Forced into more and more extreme climate the decision was finally made to abandon their world and seek out a new life elsewhere.Arriving at Gateway City and surrounded by a vast ocean these desert dwelling people had a very hard time adapting to a home that was surrounded on all sides by water. As they explored outward from the city they discovered that civilization had already grown in the northern continent of Avernon. So seeking a place to call their own explorers among them headed out into the world to find a new homeland.
In time their hope to find a new homeland became real as they searched beyond the southern Sea of Storms finding the northern coast of Rathalin. The search had taken two generations and though all true Asariyan love the windswept deserts the search for their new homeland instilled a wander lust in many of their people. Many Asariyan join adventuring groups just for that reason.
