Psionic power is prevalent and Arcane magic is outlawed unless you are a corrupt king of a city-state. Arcane magic destroys living things when cast unless you choose to preserve life at the cost of being a weaker Arcanist. Metal is rare if not impossible to find and most things are made of bone, wood, or animal parts. All gods here are dead, forgotten, or forsaken. The world is mostly a desert and a landscape that is difficult to survive in. Xenophobic Halfings protect what little forest is left hunting trespassers down and eventually devouring their flesh. The roads equally dangerous with nomadic Elves who frequently raid caravans. This is your world, this is Athas.
