The Zombie Apocalypse
Once a great alliance existed between humans, elves, and dwarves and an empire was forged out of their cooperation. This empire, known as Melthilian spanned the entire continent. When orcs from the east invaded the souther part of the continent the empire stood firm against the orcs’ advances. When the war was at a standstill and much blood had been shed, the human element of the alliance went to the orcs with a treaty, drawing a border that would give them the southern portion of the continent. Outraged that the humans would make such concessions the elves and dwarves severed the alliance and each retreated into the forests and mountains. The remaining human nation would war with the orcs for years to come though the border established by the treaty would remain. Eventually the human realm came to be known as Telviel. It consists of three main parts. The pine forests to the north, the central area known as the foothill regions, and the eastern highlands. The orc lands lie along the southern border, the elven kingdom along the northeast border, an the dwarves lie across the Salt Sea to the east.
