An ancient human civilisation. May also have been called Lohmarr?
Some stories remain which paint Blackmoor as a highly advanced civilisation. Others tell of a war with the Empire of Thonia, from whence the Blackmoorians came. Vast engines of destruction rained death over people and cities alike.
All tales speak of the Great Rain of Fire, a cataclysm that changed the world and wiped them out.
Despite its achievements, nothing now remains to show where Blackmoor was or what it was like.
Scholars debate whether Blackmoor actually existed, or is merely a fanciful invention of the tale-smiths. The theme of a fantastically advanced empire that falls through it’s own hubris could well be merely a satirical device for political comment.
