The Last Human World
The lorespeakers say that long ago before the City humanity was spread across the galaxy. That humans and other lesser races existed together in under the rulership of the great empire. Back in that empire Rath was called by another name and was a capital planet. A seat of government and power. Some say it was only a regional power; others that it was the world picked to be the center of all the empire. Little is known for sure now.
Today Rath is mostly wasteland horribly wrecked for thousands of years by the Doomtimes. Blowing sand covers much of the world and radiation is raw in places. The toxic fumes that salted the world of Rath still lie in low valleys and have turned the oceans yellow and green. Much of the surface of the world is uninhabitable, but after over 200,000 years the world is starting to recover. Small pockets of populations remained in scattered refuges and high mountains after the Doomtimes, over the years these populations expanded partially reclaiming the world as it healed. The only known large center of population, agriculture and technology is Auropia.
