Origin

The origin of the fabled kingdom of Atlantis span back more than 50,000 years.


The continent was one of the first places society flourished on Earth. Magic was the dominant source of power on the ancient continent, but in time science surpassed the mystic arts, although both are well known today by the under-sea inhabitants.


Roughly 10,000 years ago an unknown disaster would cause the great continent to sink into the ocean, with only two of its cities surviving; Poseidonis and Tritonis. The inhabitants of both cities had built protective domes before the disaster and were able to develop serums allowing them to breath underwater and leave the confining safety of their domes. The serum had an unusual effect on the citizens of Tritonis, spawning a race of mer-people. History records that both races resided in peace.


Roughly 3,000 years ago Atlantis would rise from the depths for a short time, at the hands of the mystically powerful Gamemnae. After her failed attempt to rule the ancient and eventually the modern world, Atlantis was once again sent to the bottom of the ocean where it resides today.
