Albion is a country located north of Aurora and the South Islands, south of the Edgelands, east of the Cities of the West, west of Samarkand and the Eastern Kingdom and south-east of the Northern wastes. It is a diverse land consisting of Forests, Mountains, Swamps, Marshes and vast rolling fields. It has numerous settlements includeing Bowerstone, Oakfield, Westcliff, Driftwood and Bloodstone on the west coast and Southcliff on the south coast. Further inland are the settlements of Silverpines, Brightwood Villiage, Brightwall Villiage, Dweller Camp, Mourningwood Camp, Millfields, Driffield, Enniskillen and Gunk. Old Kingdom structures dot the land.
Ancient Albion and the Rule of the CourtEdit
In the beginning Albion was a peaceful and prosperous nation, that was until the Court consisting of three powerful and deadly beings the Queen, Kinght and Jack of Blades. Theses three tyrants ruled Albion for 1,500 yearsBME bringing fresh terror to the already fearful populace. In 1580BME William Black was born in the village of Blackblade (Modern day Bowerstone) when he was a child he impressed the villagers with his powers of will. Following the Courts destruction following the Queen of Blades apparent death William Black proclaimed himself Archon (King) of Albion.
Rise of the Old KingdomEdit
Following the destruction of the Court, William Black was crowned Archon, under his rule Albion grew rich and powerful and trade and culture flourished but as the illness within William began to take its toll he returned to the Void and expelled the illness from within him. Upon his return to Albion wrapped himself in a blue and gold cloak and vanished and so the corruption of the Old Kingdom began.
Corruption of the Old KingdomEdit
With the first Archon gone his eldest son took the throne and life in Albion remained the same but this all ended when the Archon began to use his heroic powers against his own people. As the years passed Archon after Archon fearful of a coup would unleash fresh tyranny upon the people. But despite the kingdoms corruption trade remained as it was and trading villages and towns began popping up in all corners of Albion.
Fall of the Old KingdomEdit
In the year 3000BME as the Old Kingdom entered its 1000th year of existence The last Archon finished completion of the Spire and as he stood in the centre he was set to make a wish but a violent storm erupted around the summit of the structure the Spire had created a rift between Albion and the Void. Three Hero's of Will combined their powers and closed the rift but in the process the Spire absorbed the will energy causing a surge and it exploded turning the heroes into stone, killing the Archon and destroying the Old Kingdom.
After the SpireEdit
As the sun rose over a damaged and scared Albion those that survived didn't know what to do the Spire was gone the kingdom destroyed and the Archon dead. With no centralised government Albion fell into Anarchy and Chaos and the culture and wealth of the Old Kingdom was forgotten. Trade ceased and many of the trading villages and towns were abandoned.
Dark Ages and Fallow WarsEdit
With roads in disrepair many surviving towns fell into isolation with this came a sense of superstition of and hostility towards any and all outsiders, trade was rare between the surviving settlements and there was also no law enforcement. Reading and writing was forgotten and the religion of the Old Kingdom collapsed. Albion was now in the Dark Ages.
Before long a bloody and horrific war broke out and many people would hear rumours that people were being taken from their houses at night and women of child bearing age were abducted. As Albion stood on the brink of extinction hope arrived out of the east.
Nostro and the Hero GuildEdit
A bandit from the east called Nostro arrived in a large field surrounded by a small forest and founded the Hero Guild of Albion. Nostro was being guided by the mysterious Scythe an unknown man who wandered Albion. The Guild grew but Nostro fell in love with a beautiful woman called Magdalena, who went on to corrupt Nostro and the Guild reducing it to nothing more than a den of thugs and bandits.
Scythe was ashamed of Nostro, and left him to his fate. a lone assassin killed Nostro by poisoning him.
Burning of Oakvale and the Hero of OakvaleEdit
The small village of Oakvale lie on the southern coast of Albion and was a thriving fishing community but one day life in the village would never be the same again. Bandits under the command of the Jack of Blades lay waste to the village killing nearly every citizen and wounding many more. Following this Maze a member of the Hero Guild found a young boy crying beside his fathers body seeing a chance to rid Albion of Jack he rescued the boy and brought him to the Guild.
As the years passed and the hero graduated from the guild he wandered around Albion accepting random quests from the Guildmaster but his main quest was to kill Jack. During this quest he exposed Lady Elvira Grey for murdering her sister, discovered his own sister Theresa was alive and living with Twinblade, rescued his mother from and escaped from Bargate Prison beat the arena and defeated Jack within the Chamber of Fate.
