The adventures of 52 Fates take place in the world of Vreazh, a low-magic, dangerous world full of strange creatures and fantastical locations. There, the whole known world regressed considerably after the Titan Wars a few hundred years ago. There are still no truly large cities, and the biggest of the existing cities and domains live in relative isolation, minding their own business and avoiding the troubles that brought destruction and despair hundreds of years ago.
