Hundred Realms

Once a united kingdom under Arthur before the Fall of Camelot, the Hundred Realms are what stand after years and years of fighting amongst monarchs and generals: a huge multitude of realms, each with a different culture and way of life; some vying for supremacy, others simply trying to deal with the next ogre attack. It's said that no two realms are alike, and this is yet to be proven false.

Despite their differences, each Realm has maintained the need for:

  • A Name by which to call themselves
  • A Flag under which to march
  • A Monarch for whom to fight (who may be the same person as the General)
    • A Monarch may:
      • Collect Resources from the Realm
      • Influence which Quests may occur in their Realm
      • Trade away the Territories of their Realm
      • Deliver speeches of importance for the Realm
  • A General to deliver the Orders (who may be the same person as the Monarch)
    • A General may deliver Orders in Conquest

While some Realms have stuck to the old religion, worshipping The God of Albion, others have devoted themselves to new (or arguably older) Gods, or forsaken religion entirely.

Presented here are all Realms, and their territories, that currently exist and are known.

Algaroth

Once known far and wide as the Kingdom of Fairwynn, a Realm of peace and prosperity, The Archane Kingdom of Algaroth is a relatively new Realm, born five years ago through bloody revolution. Now ruled over by the Grand Warlock Skarn who appeared as out of nowhere. The Algarothi reject the God of Albion and follow instead 'The Dread Axioms' which they proclaim will lead them to Supremacy.

Arkenholm

arkenholm.jpg

Arkenholm was formerly a prosperous land, shimmering with the precious stones of its deep quarries - but in recent generations, with the shining mountain of Maenwen hollowed out to a shell, the whole realm has decayed. Even the lustre of Eternal Birkendene Forest seems to have faded, with rumours of bandits abounding.

A popular yearning to reclaim past glories has seen Queen Ceindeg the Bright swept into power, overthrowing the ‘corrupt’ and ‘ineffectual’ Lloyd the Dull. A year on, Caerarian's palace of shining spires gleams once more, as Arkenholm takes its first steps towards a new golden era.

Auralia

Auralia is a difficult land to survive in; friends and enemies may often be one and the same. The upper class stay in power through a combination of political alliances, powerful magic, and brutal assassinations of those who pose a risk; whether perceived or actual. The only time there is unquestioning loyalty from any of the citizens is when put at risk from other borders. The people of Auralia will fight for their Queen at any given opportunity, apparently through a fierce desire to gain her favour, but who knows the true motives of any Socialite.

Barrowfell

A tough, sparsely populated land, Barrowfell is home to scattered bandit clans and common folk trying to scrape a living. It is a place where people take what they want by force and those who wish to keep their land, property and livestock must be prepared to defend it. Though they may be strong, Barrovians are a superstitious people who fear the demons they believe haunt their lands from the sinister Shadow Woods to the peak of Mount Knoll where the Lord Crow rules from their mountain fortress.

Cedunon

A thick forest surrounds the entire Realm, intermittently opening up within to reveal large glades that play home to the towns and cities of Cedunon. These glades remain isolated from the world outside but not from the monsters that lurk within the depths of the woods.

The stoic green knights patrol the forests, forcing their way through the undergrowth to maintain safe routes between glades. Their code teaches that even the mightiest oak must give way before them for they are saviours and defenders of the people. Their chant: “Purity. Nobility. Divinity” can be heard echoing throughout Cedunon's great forest.

Cerrid

Cerrid was formed where druidic tradition met northern determination. A culture proud of its strength and craft, they put these skills to use tending the land rather than waging war. The Cerrid are fascinated with astronomy, the constellation of the Enfield hanging over their realm. They have no army, instead seeing that every soul is armed and trained to defend their lands.

Halrgardr

The thriving realm Halrgardr rose quickly under the leadership of a young queen immediately following the Fall of Camelot. All with good in their hearts are welcome in Silfrfold. The Shining City became a beacon for heroes and adventurers and all of the tradecrafts that support them. Halrgardians are welcoming and generous people, but dangerous if crossed.

The wolves of The Howling Forest rarely trouble welcome travellers and the trees eventually give way to a large lake that seems to glow softly green in shade or moonlight.

Legion

An idyllic realm with peaceful forests sprawling at the base of fertile mountain valleys. Legion has had a history of fielding huge armies in aid of the realm’s interests but this has died down in recent years. Majestic walled settlements are commonplace due to this martial history. Wide roads allow easy travel through these immaculately clean and tidy cities. The common populace are incredibly busy and don’t have time to meet with travelers very often. In fact wanderers usually do business amongst themselves in front of the plethora of “out for lunch - back in 10 minutes” signs.

The Realm of the Lost **Only joinable in Play**

Formed in the lands of Camelot, after the final fall of the Knights of the Round Table. Eirik was chosen by the other monarchs as the person to hold this seat of power and prevent the Hundred Realms falling too. Choosing to name their realm for their own epithet and create a place where those within the Realms, without lands to call their own could find refuge. The Realm of the Lost hope to be a welcoming place to travellers, a neutral ground for the other Monarchs to discuss politics and observe the Oracular Mirror. The realm draws inspiration from its most recent history, both reflecting the past whilst distinguishing itself as something new and independent.

A lot of the inhabitants drawn to the realm appear yet to fully find or rediscover their stories, but here perhaps they will be found…

Nelaria

The Realm of Nelaria is thick with forest. Great oak trees stand taller than anything in the realm, except the peaks of the towers of the castle. The people are accustomed to living in and amongst the trees, and it is generally considered easier to traverse their branches than to walk on the ground. “Groundwalker” is an insult, used to describe those who lack the finesse to leap from branch to branch, as well as the criminals who prefer to use the darkness from the tree-cover to conduct illicit affairs.

Nelaria was conquered completely by Svobodaskein and Melltith in the first year after Camelot's reopening.

Penmortid

Penmortid is a stretch of high cliffs, sheltered coves and dotted islands, balmy and rugged, consisting of Lysmalan (the realm's clifftop capital), Antewyn (a stretch of dunes with numerous fishing villages), and Desadberta (once a separate realm, recently subsumed into Penmortid following the betrayal of its people). Penmortid is the home of the Glorious Damned (or Fortune's Fucked, as they sometimes refer to themselves), a horde of pirates with a devil-may-care attitude and a love of poetry and adventure. The Glorious Damned take pride in their reputation for being cursed with bad luck - as far as they’re concerned, luck is for those who can’t get by on skill alone. Ancestor worship is ubiquitous throughout Lysmalan and Antewyn, and each pirate's surname alludes to a famous ancestor.

Rhyfel

Rhyfel is an old land, with an ancient legacy. It is known for being steeped in magic, for its obsession with stories, its reverence of the God of Albion, and for its outspoken support for Arthur and all others who stand against evil. The Glimmering Vale is a place full of light and rich bounties, the Whispering Mountain echoes with tales of heroes past, and the Fields of Strife bear memories of too many historic battles. It is neither a populous nor a wealthy land, but one of expansive beauty, deep wisdom, and generally safe harbour.

The Ridings

A very small realm, the only town of any note is Hamptonborough in the Middle Riding. Populated by simple farmers and craftspeople, they tend to keep themselves to themselves.

The bandit hills to the north (once known as the North Riding) are a dangerous place to be.

Sera

Sera is renowned for the wealth that comes from its mines of ores and precious gems. Trading of both raw materials and finished products such as weapons and jewellery make for the bulk of the realm's income and Serians pride themselves in their craftsmanship, the beauty of their land and the devotion to their Gods. The Glamorgans have been Sera's royalty since the birth of the realm, and Queen Niniveh is the first to take the throne as Monarch and High Priestess to the Gods. Serians are fervent worshippers of the Grey Shroud, Bringer of Death, and the Silver Well, Giver of Life, possibly the same being with different aspects, possibly siblings or something else. No one is certain, but it is best to keep them on side either way and present tribute when appropriate. Once a year secretive offerings are also made by those of the royal line, to ensure the realm's wealth, to the Nightbeast, a creature or ancient God who is said to dwell in the depths of the mines. The national colours are: black, silver, brown and red.

After the Queen took the throne and the title of High Priestess, a dream came to her. She saw how the Saxon Lands were devoid of true purpose, saw the people crying out for direction, for a firm, magnanimous monarch who would lead them. She woke up filled with purpose and declared it a dream, a vision, sent by the Gods of Sera, demanding their Realm spread their worship and their influence over those lands. And so the Queen sent both priests of the faith and warriors to escort convoys of food and other useful resources to the villages on the border of the Saxon Lands, then they made their way further into those lands, spreading their beliefs and annexing territory, as well as quelling any attempt to fight their advance, until they had enough support within the land to officialise the take over.

All in the name of their Gods.

The Spires

The Spires is a realm named for its churches, each erected in praise to the Most Perfect Aspirant, a God of Power and Perfection. The Church teaches that the Aspirant is the spirit of perfection, and that those who die find themselves close to the Aspirant upon death; the more the deceased excelled in life, the closer they reside to the most perfect being.

In general, the Aspirants consider self-improvement a moral necessity above all others. Their farmers must be the very best farmers, their warriors must train to never fall. To insinuate that someone could not improve, or is already perfect, would deny an Aspirant the chance to become closer to their deity.

Rumours persist that the Aspirants make use of strange servitors for work which their people will not, citing that work outside of ones field of aspiration is not holy, and insisting that performing those necessary tasks by any means is therefor acceptable.

Monarch: Archon Iolaus

Thule **Only joinable in Play**

Thule was a great and beautiful city with great towering domes shining like jewels in the sun, earning it the name, Thule of the Domes. It was populated by a brilliant magical population. However, they thirsted for power, and it was their thirst that lead to their downfall. No one rightly knows what exactly happened, as there were no survivors who saw it. Thule sank, and was swallowed up by the earth and the sea, leaving a broken inhospital landscape behind. Those that have heard rumours of it, knew it as Thule of the Dooms.

Their legacies are not obliterated though, and members of these Realms still walk the world trying to find their place or revive their homeland. Characters may choose to be from Defeated Realms, but should bear in mind they (currently) lack presence in Conquest.


The Elegant Harmony **Only joinable in Play**

Little is known about the Elegant Harmony except that they are strong, fast, and vampiric in nature. They hunt mortals of the world, and appear to use magic otherwise unknown.

Mayga

Divided into 3 main settlements, each built around a great college. Learning is prioritised above all else and those students who show arcane talent are held in highest esteem in their colleges and in the community.

Melltith

Ancient dark forests surrounding several small mountains. A sulphurous mist flows from the mountains drenching the forest floor in a thick blanket.

Saxon Lands (Now Sera)

The forest thins out and a huge, dark fortress emerges. Skulls often adorn walls, which are labelled with huge signs written in blood, with anti-Arthurian messages such as “King No More” and “CAMELOT FALLS”. Saxons are brutish, ill-mannered, and warlike. They still revel in their victory over Camelot, and are rumoured to have designs to make the rest of the Hundred Realms kneel before them.

Svobodaskein

A wet, misbegotten land of eery marshes and unending mudlands, Svobodaskein was without formal monarchy or power structure since the collapse of Arthur’s rule. In its place, a tenuous alliance of village elders and local barons sought advice from a mysterious authority dwelling deep within the marshes of Thousand Drownings.

Svobodans were fiercely independent and individualistic. They rejected all claims to hereditary power, and despised the vanity of titles and other such trappings of unearned authority. Lacking a formal military, willing freefolk banded together as equals to repel invaders.

The Court of Thorns was a cruel and unforgiving place where spite drives all action. Insult was easily given and never forgotten, with the favours of the upper echelons constantly shifting on a whim. Formerly a House from within Auralia, the draconically sponsored House of Thorns was discontent with how they were being treated in comparison to the House of Blossoms – whom they despised – and having been given insult by Arkenholm, Sera, and Penmortid they incited rebellion in the land of Mayga to wage war against their enemies.
