AGAINST ALL FORMS
OF DISCRIMINATION
ALL OVER THE WORLD
Let us all be friends (and gamers.).

Prelude

In the days before Hin recorded time, the Immortals Night and Mother Earth were friends. And while other Immortals created races single-handedly, Night and Mother Earth worked together on the creation of the Halfling race.
Originally living on the southern continent Davania, with only contacts with the elves there, they became a strong race.
After the Great Rain of Fire in 3000 BC the lands, climate and whole environment changed and became more and more inhospitable.. The Hin as the Halflings called themselves left their ancestral lands and homes and moved north by ship.
Around 1300 BC the Hin came to the area that is now the Five Shires. The cape where they landed they named Faerdinel Keep (Faer = Hope, Dinel= haven in Lalor (Hin language)) The Hin see his as the beginning of Hin history.
The Hin erected towers where they made Landfall (not only Faerdinel Keep, but nearby too).And in the upcoming centuries, the Hin slowly entered the rolling hills north, filled with riches and a race of friendly pacifistic elves (the Gentle Folk. In these years they slowly abandoned the keeps they erected earlier, as the Sea of Dread was far  from stable and save in these decades due to tectonic instability, and the Hin forgot most of them. And when the Gentle Folk disappeared under Orcish and Human attacks the Early days of Hin-kind were at an end.
Many Hin have searched for Faerdinel Keep but none have actually found it, nor others. Great earthquakes which originally created the Ierendi and Minrothad Islands were often still active, and in the centuries the Hin explored the main land, the coastline disappeared beneath the waves, altered, or became small islands.
Faerdinel and most other keeps collapsed and the surrounding areas covered it completely. And while every Hin searched for a cape on the Shire Shores, none came upon the idea that Faerdinel could be further East and the others could be sunk or locked on the tiny islands.
Around 650 AC something happened. From the Thanagioth Islands in the South arrived a young dragon. Gartax was its name. And it was as Evil as it was smart and cunning. In the following centuries it became more and more powerful. In 1001 AC Gartax changed into a Huge Dragon, and with it’s Omen of Coming many earthquakes raked the land. And unknown to Gartax, this led to the reopening of one of the sister keeps of Faerdinel. And while Gartax had made its lair literally on top of this keep, he never knew about it. Although he found some ruins, he never understood the importance of it to the Hin. In these ruins he kept its treasure hoard. Just during it’s last Circle of Magic he found a scroll tube speaking about some might and knowledge to be found in the very same keep. So he puzzled and searched
Unknown to him Mother Earth and Night had reunited and agreed it was time to reveal the Hin their ancient roots. Therefore they placed knowledge and visions in the heads of several individuals they cherished They also placed the scroll tube and hoped their plot would lead to what they intended; A friendship, spread over day and night of all races together.
And indeed Gartax flew away to try to locate Faerdinel keep, but even in it’s a recent Circle of Knowledge, it did not find what it longed for. And when the Circle of Feeding started, on the hunt for a large feral creature, it lost the Tube it held so dearly on the spot where both Immortals had planned it.
Now all they had to do was wait, trusting that their faint hints, and maybe a riddled hint later, were enough and see if all would come as they had plotted.
