The world of the Dawn Lands is a point of the multiverse connected by many powerful ley lines. Many portals are located throughout the planet, with the majority of the portals no longer functional, but their structures remain. Over time, many different races and cultures found their way to the Dawn Lands through the portals while they were active. They then were able to establish their own presence on the planet. According to Legends, there was a highly advanced ancient race that built the portals, but the reason for them has been lost to time. Many, many eons ago, the ancient race vanished, which left the Dwarves to rule the planet in their stead and they are now considered to be the “native race” of the Dawn Lands. The Elves, the Fey, and the humans from Earth traveled through different portals and settled in. This is what has given us the Dawn Lands as we know it today.
