The Cataclysm was a massive, world-scale event that wiped out almost all life a thousand years ago. Or was it two? Or…a couple hundred? The details are murky, as few things survived whatever took place.
In schools, The Cataclysm is talked about as the dawning of a new era, and is mostly glossed over and considered a moment of hope an rebirth. Whatever the world was before, it must’ve been pretty damn terrible if it got wiped out, right?
Good thing you all get a second chance!
