Gatenbarg was a human nation that had once existed in the New World, three hundred years ago.
Three hundred years ago, Gatenbarg was a nation founded by humans, who were mainly magic casters living in cities centered around the quick exchange of information using ‘Message’. However, due to their reliance of ‘Message’, the cities received three falsified messages, which internally led to their nation's downfall as a whole. This was due to the magic being less reliable as the content of the messages becomes distorted depending on the distance.
A civil war broke out between the cities over these messages. The infighting left the nation in a weakened state and as a result, it left itself vulnerable to be destroyed, when monsters and demi-humans invaded.
