The Metal Muses
When finally the Shet’zen decided that they would no longer be imprisoned by the gods who so hatefully tried to destroy them, they left their plateau with a deadly vengeance. Their armies swarmed over the lands and conquered the lesser races one by one. Resistance was met everywhere, but it never lasted long. The Shet’zen had prepared for it for thousands of years, the time that they would return to the lands below and subjugate The Slave Races. Victory was swift, in less than a century the entire continent of Metaase was under the thumb of the Shet’zen.
Once their conquest was complete, the Shet’zen began building for the greater wars to come. With slave villages beyond number, the new empire had near-limitless resources. Their mastery of Necromancy and Enchantment helped them to beat down revolutions and pry the most ancient secrets from the minds of their subjects. The Ascent had begun.
