Concordance for Survival

We are not friends. We are not allies. I do not trust you. But our survival depends on us fighting together.
— Chagroth Durinhelm

In the Year 3040, the Kirinal Pit exploded, the dimensional barriers came down and invasions from multiple hostile dimensions commenced. The world would have been consumed immediately if the invaders had been coordinated, but the armies of undead, abominations, and fiends fought each other as much as they fought the world's defenders.

Depleted by decades of defending the world from extraplanar invasions, Lozar and it's allies were near collapse when, in desperation they sent a call for aid to the Empire of Borthakar and the nation of Kiris, their oldest and most hated enemies.

When the humanoid and ensorcelled armies arrived, Chagroth half-expected them to fight alongside the invaders, but instead they fought in defense of the world.

The initial incursion was thrown back and new fortresses were built on the rim of the newly enlarged Pit. Borthakar and Kiris were allowed to build two Embassy Fortresses, the Bastion of Borthakar and the Fortification of Kiris, in repayment and the old enemies fought side by side for 20 years before the Gods Withdrawal and a semblance of stability returned to the Kirinal Pit.

The Concordance for Survival, a mutual protection treaty against interplanar incursions was signed by the nations of Western Krosia, leading to a detente and the abatement of all out war in Western Krosia.

Kirinal Concordance Zone

Under the treaty, the Kirinal Pit and the lands for 20 miles around it are a neutral zone administrated by the Concordance. The Neutral Zone is split into eight cantons, city-states run by members of the Concordance.

They coordinate on defense and military responses to threats from the Pit. They are completely independent on internal matters and trade.


  • Fortresses of the Kirinal Pit

    A hole in reality 30 miles wide ringed by walls and fortresses and cities. The Kirinal Pit is both the greatest threat and the greatest resource in the world. This map depicts the fortresses shortly after they were built in the early days of the Concordance for Survival.

  • Kirinal Concordance Zone

    The Kirinal Concordance Zone was created around the Kirinal Pit to act as a buffer zone to defend against interplanar invasions. The Pit is a 30-mile hole in reality that chaotically manifests a different world or plane at random times.

    Eventually, the people of Erathia tamed the Pit, setting it on a schedule so that an ordered succession of planes would appear over the Days of the Week.
