Overview Rules The World Now: The world has survived centuries of war, but none as large as what is to come. It is currently the 38th year of the 5th Era. Ludor has not seen peace for 240 years. The Kingdom of Icacia has already invaded the Kingdom of Girith and the Kingdom of Vuston in order to expand their territory and spread their religious teachings. The Kingdom of Girith is in a state of civil war after giving the Kingdom of Icacia the mouth of the Genyss River, causing the Girithian's economy to drop due to less trade rights. The Girithian Rebels, named the Crimsons, have already pushed the Girithian army out of the cities of Ostromore and Trien. The Kingdom of Nomadia is currently being invaded by the Icacians and the Halians. The Kingdoms of Icacia, Halium, and Espen have signed a treaty of alliance, naming themselves the Legion of Orogethy. The Democracy of Aslevalon has sworn to remain neutral throughout the war to come. Today, the kings of Nomadia and Vuston will be arriving in Crisvale to sign a treaty of alliance countering the Legion of Orogethy. Let's hope everything goes well.
