THE SHATTERED WORLD OF ZAKEER BECKONS...
Centuries ago Zakeer was a bountiful world filled with fertile fauna and flora. Capricious gods looked upon this verdant paradise and decided to issue a challenge. They summoned forth the Ancients Obelisk, a massive plinth carved with runes that would summon six of the Ancients, beasts so terrifying that anyone who controlled them all would rule unchallenged.
Soon warlords arose trying to best each other using the runic tablets known as the Deck of Ancients. The deck is made up of slivers of knowledge. Knowledge of renowned warriors, mystic places, powerful spells, unstable weather, mana infused gemstones, and even the Ancients themselves. Over the ensuing decades and centuries the warlords have battled, sundering the world in the process. None were able to gain an upper hand. Now they have begun to build truces amongst themselves. Soon these teams will vie for the most sought after of goals, control of the Ancients Obelisk.
