The Ruined Ones
The Ruined Ones were intended to be (explained and) created in the storyline of Dark Sands, so you could always bring their origins into it if you want to have the story take place after The Dark Sands (The start of it at least lol).
This is where we come in, hot on the murder mystery of three races facing extinction, searching for the prophet of a wish-granting God, in a barbaric world before the civilizations arose.
A murder mystery in a barbaric Alsta!
Tribes of people all over the place, to be saved or crushed!
I like this idea!
