THE AIR SPLITS WITH A THUNDERING ROAR. The furious cry of the dinosaurs echoes throughout the savage jungles and deserts of Telgaia. The cry for violence echoes in the hearts of man: the world over, young nations flex their muscles and send eager warriors to test their strength on one another’s shields and spears.

Not all is wanton violence, however. In the burgeoning nations around the great gulf, international trade and commerce hold the promise of wealth for all. Grand cities are rising throughout the steamy jungles encasing the gulf, and brave sailors spread news, goods, and culture across the region.

Grandest among these nations is Gilgalon, the First Empire. Spanning hill, plain, jungle, and desert, the great Gilgalon boasts a massive populace and multiple grand cities that draw merchants like moths to a flame. While Gilgalon is the greatest exemplar of what civilization might become, most early kingdoms spreading along the great gulf look to the future with grand optimism.

And even so, it is understood that young folk, especially young men, must fight. So the borders between nations frequently become staging grounds for minor skirmishes as the foolhardy nature of youth, egged on with one’s bronze in their hand, bathes the dirt in blood.

But this petty warfare will soon turn dire. In the warmongering kingdom of Brazodir, Godking Assurgazzar sharpens his bronze swords and prepares his men to conquer. Small towns in Gilgalon’s orbit will soon taste Assurgazzar’s mad wrath…
