The world is Membrum, a planet dedicated to the struggle of Good vs. Evil and placed between Heaven and Hell. A single continent separated by a huge mountain range with a few small islands dotting around the borders comprises the majority of the landmass. Three countries reside in this world; Methodia, a largely evil and tyrannical monarchy to the east, Apsuchos Maraino, a republic in the south of neutral morality, and Basileia Agathos, the kingdom of light to the west. The only real way of transport between the east and west is at the Gate, and is watched over on the western side by the simply named city "Gatewatch" where the adventure begins. Two powers are at work here, Good and Evil, and are each represented by a singular entity, though neither directly influence events, leaving that up to their servants.
