Though civilized for thousands of years, Norrath stubbornly remains wild and unpredictable. Evil beasts and vile creatures wander the wilds of the land, preying on travelers or any civilized outpost not sufficiently defended from their predations.
Antonica is the mainland in the known world. It contains some of the most well-known cities, and it boasts a diverse population of races that include barbarians, dark elves, high elves, half-elves, halflings, ogres, trolls and the ubiquitous humans. Antonica was recently renamed in honor of the founder of the kingdom of Qeynos, Antonius Bayle I I I . Previously, it was known as Tunaria after the goddess Tunare, who first populated the land with her high elven children. Many high elves yet refer to it as Tunaria to this day, no matter what the young race of humans chooses to call it.
