A Spellplagued Land
At the foundation of the world, the Elemental Chaos churns like an ever-changing tempest of clashing elements – fire and lightning, earth and water, whirlwinds and living thunder. Just as the gods originated in the Astral Sea, the first inhabitants of the Elemental Chaos were the primordials, creatures of raw elemental power. They shaped the world from the raw materials of the Elemental Chaos, and if they had their way, the world would be torn back down and returned to raw materials. The gods have given the world permanences utterly alien to the primordial’s nature. At the bottom of that maelstrom is the Abyss.
