This is a freeroam rp set in the world of Allansia. If you don't want to read through the following wall of text skip to the char creation at the bottom.
Many centuries ago chaos spilled into the world. The Demon Princes led armies of demons, orcs, goblins and dark elves against the good peoples of Allansia. This began the War of the Wizards. The final battle took place in the grand city of Carsepolis, centre of Allansia. The forces of chaos overwhelmed the human army and took the first and second walls leaving the humans trapped between the first wall and the ocean. Luckily the elves of the Forests of Night and the dwarves of Frostholm came to aid the human army, driving back the forces of chaos into the forests and mountains from which they came. Carsepolis was in ruins and never rebuilt. The War of the Wizards had ended and the New Age had begun. What was once the Kingdom of Allansia became no more than a group of city-states, each ruled over by self-proclaimed Kings, Dukes and Lords.
Today the arguments between the city-states have been halted. There are no more wars and stability has come to Allansia. Salamonis has become the grandest and oldest of the city-states, its rule stretching out to the villages of Warpstone and Silverton. King Salamon LVII rules with a fair but firm fist. Salamonis is known as the safest place in all of Allansia.
On the western coast where Carsepolis once stood is Port Blacksand, also known as the City of Thieves. It is known as the most dangerous and corrupt city in Allansia, ruled over by the mysterious Lord Azzur.
The town of Stonebridge is the only city-state in Allansia not ruled by humans but dwarves. The best smiths in Allansia are here and the dwarves constantly watch the Moonstone Hills for goblins activity.
As for the elves, they have been in decline since the dawn of the New Age. Their forest cities are a closely guarded secret, protected by magic. It is well known throughout Allansia that the Forest of Yore contains the largest of the elven cities, but the magic protecting it prevents outsiders from entering. Elves that have left the forest cities become considered outsiders and once having left they can never return.
Hidden in the wilds many chaotic creatures still roam. In the Icefinger Mountains roam orcs, ogres, trolls, giants and many other creatures. Across the Pagan Plains goblin tribes continuously attack merchant caravans whilst in the Darkwood Forest the dark elves have built their own forest city and fiercely guard their dark secrets, plotting to take control of the world for their demon masters. Goblin and Orc tribes roam both the Moonstone Hills and the Craggen Heights, ambushing merchant caravans in Trolltooth Pass and on the Southern Plains barbarian tribes frequently raid the farms around Whitewater River.
Famous Faces in Allansia
Nicodemus was one of the Three Star Pupils, an apprentice to the Grand Wizard of Yore, Vermithrax Moonchaser. In his early years after Vermithrax’s death Nicodemus was an adventurer, having explored and learnt much of Allansia. His rise to fame came when he encountered what he called the Dark Ones, a group of three evil mages who died during the War of the Wizards and contained their spirits deep in the Southern Plains. Nicodemus was struck by a death spell and survived, being the only one in history to resist such a spell. Nicodemus trapped the Dark Ones within the ruin they resided in and it became their prison. Today Nicodemus lives in Port Blacksand in retirement. Why he chose to live in the City of Thieves no one will ever know.
The second of the Star Pupils, Yaztromo travelled with Nicodemus for a while before the Dark Ones were released. Yaztromo came to fame when he aided the dwarves of Stonebridge in defeating a rising dark elf army under the Witch-Queen. Yaztromo is well known for inventing strange and magical objects, one of which deflected a death spell back at the Witch-Queen. Today Yaztromo lives in a tower in the Darkwood Forest, isolated from the rest of the world. He is often seen helping travellers and adventurers who get lost in the woods or are attacked by dark elf raiding parties.
Pen Ty Kora
Little is known about the last of the Star Pupils. He is known as a great healer but his origins are unknown. Yaztromo was once overheard Pen Ty came to Allansia from a land far to the south, over the Southern Plains and the Desert of Bones. His current location is unknown but he is easily recognisable due to his golden mask.
The Demonic Three
Vermithrax Moonchaser’s greatest rival, Volgera Darkstorm also undertook the training of three apprentices. Little is known about the Demonic Three except their names; Zagor, Zharradan Marr and Balthus Dire.
It is well known Zagor resides in Firetop Mountain, north of Stonebridge whilst Balthus Dire rules over the orc and goblin tribes in the Craggen Heights from the Black Citadel. Zharradan Marr’s location, however remains a mystery for the last he was heard from was when he crossed from the mortal realm into the realm of chaos.
Nothing is known of the Lord of Port Blacksand. He came to the city twenty years ago and violently took control of the city. Azzur rules with an iron fist, killing any who cross his path. Rumours constantly float about the city of his origins, the most popular being he was once Garius the Pirate King of Halak who disappeared twenty years ago. Others say he is a demon in the guise of a man. Whatever the truth I doubt anyone will ever know the man behind the black mask he always wears.
