The Empire of the Risen Sun was reduced to the small outcrop on the western part of the map. As the years passed the nations eventually evolved into what they are presently in the Ninth Age of Elysium. Forces from Asphos Dale attempted to conquer Elysium twice, but they were defeated both times. Over time Orwin and the Kingdom of Arc separated from Selaria, and Rumidon and Granson became two nations again.
The races I allow without question are: Humans, Dwarves, and Aasimar (without edit), Tieflings, Half-Elves, Half-Drow, Drow (with minor editing for balance), Tortles, Orcs, High Elves, Wood Elves, Genasi, and Minotaurs (with fairly significant alterations). New races I made were Deeplings (magically inclined humanoids), leonin (from MtG, but more like actual lions than the advanced humanoid race they are presented as), garudian (the avian owl-people), and Shades (which are so different as to constitute their own race, they don't possess all of the same gimicky powers and are also naturally psionic).
That's the setting in a nutshell. I think I have it uploaded to an internet storage site and could drop the link if anyone's interested. I'm sort of concerned about the theft of intellectual property since I'm writing a novel in the setting (a lofty goal I know), but I might post it anyway if enough interest is shown.
