Very nice description. I just want to point out that at one point, we
wanted the game start one thousand years after the Cataclysm. I now 
think that was a bad idea. Better idea would be to start the game just
after the Cataclysm (which I believe Hook intends here): Populations 
would be low, places would be in ruins and the people/players would 
have a lot to do. (Just after being relative term, I mean year to ten after
the Cataclysm.)

The beginning places would be those places, in which a relatively large
amounts of people have survived (like 30 to 100 or so people in the
city of Thome above). Former allies would be in one area: That 
would explain why elves, humans, dwarves (and other "good" races)
are in one place and orcs, trolls, whatever other "evil" races
we have are in another. .. Or however we deem fit to place them.

Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, 
	for they are subtle and quick to anger.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
	for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
