Description

The crown jewel of the continent of Khorvaire, the seat of culture and magical advancement, and sadly, a country which exists no more. After being harried by war for many years, a great tragedy struck, and in a single day and night of misfortune, Cyre exploded and was no more. What is left is a barren wasteland, an arid desert where nothing grows and nothing rots, and where undead of all sorts roam the land at will, never knowing peace. It is called the Mournland.

But in the past, Cyre was a great nation, where art, literature, knowledge and philosophy were highly valued. Now, it lives only in the hearts of the survivors.

Known Things

Five Things Every Cyran Knows:

1. Where they were on the Day of Mourning. No Cyran will ever forget that terrible day and how they survived as so many others did not. “Tomorrow in Cyre” has become an expression of hope, a reflection of sadness, and a promise to win back what has been lost.

2. Some form of artistic expression. Cyrans are artists to their core, whether that art takes the form of drawing, painting, sculpture, song, or arcane spell. Cyrans love to experiment with art, pushing the borders and shocking others with just how far they will go to advance the form.

3. The Cyran appreciation. This philosophy and lifestyle promotes the appreciation of beauty and magic in avant-garde and unconventional ways.

4. What happened on the Day of Mourning. Every Cyran knows what happened on the Day of Mourning and who caused it. They know. And every Cyran will tell you a different version of the events.

An accident, a deliberate attack, a cowardly act of terrorism, an act of nature, a punishment from the gods — these are just some of the explanations that Cyrans share in their homes and in taverns.

5. How to perform a Cyran tago. This highly charged form of dance that has been described as frenetic, movingly beautiful, and extremely erotic, is the birthright of every son and daughter of Cyre. It is taught at a young age and perfected at social events throughout a Cyran’s life. No Cyran performs the tago badly, and some perform it with exquisite grace and precision.
