- Definitions – a short dictionary
The descriptions of game elements, as well as the two scenarios, depict a fantasy world very similar to that of The Witcher, but without an official confirmation. The game contains however some direct mentions to The Witcher lore, like in case of amulets of Visenna and Yennefer which attributes are described in chapter two. The Supplement written by co-editors provides also a description of the red dragon Ocvist.
If indeed the Empire described in game was meant to be a part of the Continent, it must have existed long before the Northern Wars when the monsters were abundant and the adjacent areas were still unexplored.
