Slowly we learn more about this campaign world. It had an event or series of events a long time ago called the Dragon Wars.

Cool, huh?

This epic fantasy stuff is easy to write.

2015-12-21 Rerun commentary: Thirty leagues of excavation through solid rock in a week is pretty fast, even for dwarves.

And you know how easy this fantasy stuff is to write? After the Dragon Wars laid waste to large swathes of land, the remaining dragons retreated to places seldom visited by the lesser races (elves, dwarves, humans, etc.), and those races eventually came to dominate the world.

Wow, it virtually writes itself.
