Welcome to Alsheria! This is another continent that is part of the Tale. It has Eastern flavor and is unique in its own right.
You don't have to know anything about the primary continent to jump in and play a character in Alsheria. New races and classes are available as character options as well as familiar Oriental races and classes. Alsheria is best summed as one part Xen'Drik, one part Oriental, one part post-War of the Burning Sky and one part Tale of the Twin Suns. Take from that what you will.
This group will be for the creation and expansion of Alsheria. Sometimes I get burnout working on the primary area of the Tale. I came up with the idea of Alsheria on 12/11/08 during a sleepless night. Support and encouragement means a lot to me as it helps to keep the ideas flowing.
