Did I miss something on the way in or is there a total lack of narrative here? I thought maybe some modicum of a back story would be revealed with time, but I’m level 6 now and still haven’t heard the first iota of explanation for the alleged setting.
What’s the significance of the tree(s)? Who and what are the players/guardians? Does anybody else inhabit this fractured realm or are we all just protecting the merchant (who seems to be the only non-guardian resident) from random monsters and each other? Is there an exposition for this or is it just “You’re in ‘Heaven’. There’s cults and sh*t. Go.”
Seriously, was any of this mentioned at some point and did I just miss it or forget?
