Realms

From Lord Of The Craft
Jump to: navigation, search

The realms of the known world consist of a number of isles, continents, and other land masses on which the Descendents have settled and journeyed, and otherwise surveyed across the centuries. Although there have been many locations around the known world, this page is specifically set to focus upon those that have been used as maps in the past. By this, they are considered canon locations that the players have enjoyed over the years. From Aegis, our first realm, to that of the current day.

Past realms used as maps cannot be currently visited in any capacity, due to most of them suffering catastrophes, or other destructive events, warranting the inhabitants of the land to flee to somewhere new.

These canon realms are arranged in order from oldest two new, each of which specifically refers to the intended use of the land. Throughout the centuries, our Descendents have travelled through major and minor realms, major for those of which the majority of planned event lines, established nations, and other standard practices are carried out, and minor for those that were designed to serve as temporary or transition maps.

Historically, most 'major' realms have followed a naming pattern in which the first letter was always an 'A', in reference to legend lore. However, this pattern was broken once for the following the transition from that of Athera to the large realm of Vailor.

Arcas (Current Realm)

1708 - Today

The isle of Arcas, a largely fertile peninsula south of the great ice wall, separating Atlas (the previous realm) from Arcas (the current realm). A great mountain range dominates the north and north-west areas of the isle, while a small archipelago dominates the south-west. Huge plateaus cross the eastern coast, while a circular mountain rounds Cloud Temple in the middle of the land.

1643-1708

Atlas is a wild, mostly uncharted landscape that has next to no mention in ancient texts. This area seems to be sacred to a number of religions and magic arts for unknown reasons but the contient is largely abandoned. Orcish ruins dot the landscape intermixed with elven monuments, some parts of the land display a gorgeous majesty that stands as a testament to this beautiful, almost untouched, landscape

The Fringe

The Fringe was released as an expansion to Anthos in a similar to fashion to Aegis and The Verge. Located far away from the borders of Anthos; it soon became a refuge for the survivors following the destruction of Anthos. The Black Scourge were defeated here during the time that the descendant races inhabited it.

Thales

Thales was designed to allow testing of several new plugins in preparation for Athera and to provide a replacement for The Fringe. It was the most recent minor realm in Lord of the Craft.

Asulon

1351-1414

After the Destruction of Aegis the survivors sailed to Asulon. A far larger realm than its predecessor, Asulon contained many more nations, longer travel distances and two new playable races. It existed for approximately 70 years before being abandoned for‍ Elysium.‍

Elysium

After the fall of Asulon the survivors sailed to Elysium. Made mostly of tall mountains and many deserts, Elysium had many dangerous mobs. It is also remembered as having a large chicken population. It was released before Kalos and existed alongside it for some time.

Kalos

A world made to complement Elysium, Kalos had several large islands. The defining feature was the Badlands, an area of the Wilds where many server rules were relaxed. About 10 years was spent in Elysium and Kalos before moving to Anthos.

Aegis

1305 - 1351

The first realm of the server, Aegis is where Iblees fought the Descendent races and everything was made. Existing for slightly over 1350 years, Aegis was eventually conquered and destroyed by the Undead.

The Verge

The Verge was originally released as a new area for peoples of Aegis to explore and collect resources in. It gained a prominent part in the server lore when it was used by the surviving Aegeans after the Destruction of Aegis to flee to Asulon. It was not as large as Aegis and did not have nearly as large a population. The world was notable for having very dangerous fauna.
