Worsykai is a universe created by a demigod known to most who know he exists as The Dreamer. The Dreamer is very powerful, but must sleep from time to time. When he sleeps, his dreams become reality. He does not have complete control over what he creates with these dreams.

The campaign begins in a world called Aragul. Aragul is populated with a variety of races and nations. The Dreamer has made great lengths to isolate Aragul, so that it is not taken over by His Nightmares.

The PCs start off as simple sellswords in the city of New Hormagaunt.
