The common people of Arvum wouldn't really call the last thousand years a 'golden age'.

But even as the fragile peace frays with the latest dynastic crisis, creating courtly intrigues in the capital city of Arx, ancient foes that took mankind to the brink of extinction a thousand years ago stir once more.
