The Engulfing

It is said that long ago, the surface world used to be a place ruled only by man. Nature and beasts had their place, but they were kept in check with civilization. Cities stretched all across the world, unhindered by the monsters that we know of today and mortals lived in great prosperity. All was calm and orderly, until a great catastrophe known as “The Engulfing” occurred. The exact cause of the cataclysm still remains a mystery, but whatever the cause, something had awaken the primal energies of nature to swallow the world in untamed flora and fauna in the matter of moments; without warning and without mercy. Plant life overtook the great walls of meek towns and great kingdoms alike. Creatures of unknown origin began to appear out of thin air and devoured citizens. Ancient dragons and wyverns, thought to be long gone, returned in staggering numbers, overrunning entire armies. Ruins of the ancient cities still litter the landscape, but they have been mostly overtaken by the elements. Any accounts of History found that took place before the Engulfing are simply marked B.E. (Before Engulfing) and the current calender records anything that has happened after as A.E. (After Engulfing). (This is pure rough draft, will flesh it out later)
