Ancient dragons, asleep for millenia, have awoken and wreaked their havoc on Tyria. It is now but shadow of its prior form. The human numbers have heavily decreased, as Ascalon is torn apart by the Charr and Kryta coasts are heavily flooded by the dragons. Only a few of the previously flourishing dwarves remain.
