Sorencia is a large continent far to the west of Tolornia. Not much is known about the culture of the peoples of Sorencia. It is known to be dominated by humans who worship Livanil, the god of love and charity who believes all nonhuman races are tainted and inferior. These inferior races- including gnomes, dwarves, elves, and halflings are treated as second class citizens by the people of this continent.
The Church of Livanil has been the predominant religion of Sorencia for over a thousand generations, and while some disagree with its teachings, such mutterings are completely annihilated. The Church strongly believes that the ends justify the means, and they have no moral qualms about spreading their influence by any means necessary. Their ruthlessness is what enabled them to take hold of Sorencia to begin with, and it is what has ensured their continued grasp of the continent.
The Church’s methodology has lead to a few… diplomatic mishaps in the past with the kingdoms of Tolornia. The greatest of these was the Fongor Plague which wiped out 80% of the nonhuman population of Fongor. However a group of noble adventurers discovered their involvement with The Plague when the Church attempted to extend their influence in Bres via similar means. The Church was summarily evicted from the continent and any attempts to return are thwarted by the constant vigilance of the Patronus Order of Autor.
