Wild's End - The Home of the Halflings
The latest lore and region update has been posted to the Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen website that gives interested fans a look at Wild's End, one of the game's zones. Wild's End is the home of the Halflings in the city of Sorhiryth and is also the location of the Halfling starter zone.
The record of this region begins before any of the Sacred Six, predating the Dragon Accord itself by years unknown. Scraps and scrawls speak of a peaceful cult, devoted to internal fervency, external communion and the prosperity of the nature around them. But some calamity overthrew their number, and in their place came the haunt of wraiths. The chants of worship returned as echoes of terror. In this indifferent manner the land turned wild, its reputation leaving it untouched until the appendix of the War of Gods. Yet into this wilderness stepped the intrepid Halflings, and under their quick eye and relentless hand the land has found its old prosperity.
Today, the affairs of the Halflings weave almost imperceptibly through the undomesticated pasture, which features a vast and violent swamp, a pristine pond of translucent depth and mineral rejuvenation, a decrepit temple of the dispossessed, a craven offshoot of the pioneer Halflings and of course, their elevated home of Sorhiryth. For all told, this sliver of Kingsreach is much greater than a mere city, and it cradles mysteries far older than its newest inhabitants. It is a long and twisting hallway, where rooms are bright and dark, restorative and vicious, and the doors are never locked.”
