Welcome to Hyväkä, a new homebrew world from the mind of dungeon master Dianne DeCarlo. The continent of Sha'oghal in the Age of Atharr is on the brink of change. Since the Land Wars in 82 P.D., that uprooted many gnomes & dwarves in the Orman Valley, forcing them up to live together in Mithjall. The Ghrian Kingdom now has control over most of the land and has enforced a strict pantheon on the people. Worship of any deity outside of the Absolute Thirteen is forbidden, devotion to the Bounded Six is punishable by death. The X'alach Dynasty, who was granted the northeastern corner of the continent during the Territory Treaty of 83 P.D., has since started expanding downwards into the Underdark. Mithjall, stuck in the middle, has stayed neutral, focusing on propelling technology forward to gain leverage in their ties with either territory. Now, the year 798 P.D., months after the maiden voyage of the Steam Forge Rail Line turned to tragedy a corruption spreads throughout the lands while tensions rise between the Ghrian Kingdom and the X'alach Dynasty.
