This campaign is set in Mearoc, though on a distant continent from what you have adventured on in the past. The moons are still the same and represent the gods, though they are no longer a power in the Northern Continent.
References to the moons still bear the names of the gods and goddesses, though these reference are fading in locations as new names take their place.

Giant stone platforms are placed at nearly every street corner and anyone can stand upon them to speak of the tales of anyone who passed in the last year.
