This continent is home to the strongest of the human empires, and some dwarven cities. Located in the Northwest of the world, it borders the continent of Nalaria. The land is ripe with history, with its wars and fabled demi-gods.
The humans of Astimere in its early days, were nomadic with one chieftain leading each tribe. These chieftains were demi-gods, individuals blessed with long life and immense power. When the humans settled down into permanent settlements, many of the weaker demi-gods had died out during the wars fought between tribes. The demi-gods that survived left the humans to wander the world and enter into periods of hibernation. These demi-gods later gave birth to the religions of Astimere. Some demi-gods took it upon themselves to protect certain tribes, which ultimately led to the Gastonian Wars. Zarth blessed the people of Gastonia with his protection, and Dalmin pleged to protect the tribes that would from the Northern Astimerian Empire. The followers of Zarth and Dalmin would wage war with each other, under the leadership of their respective demi-god. The most recent war, the Third Gastonian War, was fought between Gastonia (Zarth followers) and the Norther Astimerian Empire (Dalmin Followers). The result was the destruction of Old Gastonia, the death of Dalmin, and the sealing of Zarth. Zarth was banished by the remaining demi-gods because of his controversial use of demons in his army, and the corruption of the humans in Gastonia.
