From the campaign:
Shroud of the Ancients is a fantasy roleplaying game is set in a post-cataclysmic dystopia where your character lives in the sanctuary known as Aegis; a place where hard-working citizens are often the pawns of political and religious power struggles. A brave few stand up to the corruption they encounter, while others play along, hoping to prosper and endure. Meanwhile, the devastated world outside, which the scholars refer to as Terrath, holds the promise of independence, but at the expense of security. In truth, it is said that only the most experienced souls have a chance to survive the perilous shroud that now cloaks the world.
