OverviewLast Light: Beyond the Reckoning does not take place in the Forgotten Realms, Eberron, or any other Dungeons and Dragon setting. Last Light takes place in its custom world, a world that suffers through a tumultuous time that takes inspiration from the real world Enlightenment period, otherwise known as the Renaissance. It also takes from some Neo-Victorian influences, which means leading up to the Victorian era. Because of the time period that Last Light is framed around, it is possible to see a range of different concepts, especially since this is a fantasy, but we like to stay true to that "classic adventure game" feel that everyone knows and loves about Neverwinter Nights.
