THE WORLD OF ASCEND
The world of Ascend is not local to one player’s machine; it is formed by the actions of all players within the Ascend universe. Territory within the overall game world changes hands as the Gods wither and flourish. Global changes in the Ascend environment are the result of individual player actions across the game.
HALL OF CHAMPIONS
The Sanctum is a cavity of solid stone far beneath the world we tread. This sacred place was created by beings called the First Race. Even before the Old Gods walked, this place existed. It is the heart of the world, and the dwelling place of the Ascended.
The Kul Highlands take their name from Kul, the Great God of the Hunt, who once walked these lands. Kul taught the first humans the ways of the pack, and so created the first tribes.
The highlands were once a vibrant land, but time has made these hills dark with peril. Trolls and demonkind lurk at every turn.
The First Race littered the world with great doorways and secret chambers. Their titanic dungeons honeycomb the stone beneath the mountains, holding plunder and doom.
Shrines are the seat of divine power. Destroy the pagan shrines and raise your own God's monuments to build dominion and earn Crusade Points
The ancestors interred the sacred relics in great stone chests, holding faith that the Caos would one day return.
