Hidden Agendas takes place in a world where there once existed a mighty Dwarven empire. This civilization which tried to reach the might of the gods has since fallen and little remains of their rich knowledge and prosperity. Now, civilization is slowly returning by the hands of men, elves, and dwarves; together rising up from the ashes and starting anew. The land is shaped by many creatures, birthed from spirits that have long since stepped away. Yet, the dwarves still grumble as the world continues toward an unsure horizon.
