The Shattering, or the Shattering of the Astral Sea was a cataclysmic event in the history of Krossterra. Not a lot is known about the cause of this event, but the effects have affected many of Krossterra's inhabitants. Areas of land upheaval, pockets of dense magical energy, and mass continental changes are a few of the known effects. As well, since the Shattering, the old gods have become silent and many distrust the new gods that have stepped up to rule in the Astral Sea.
