While a location seems to many as just a place, Where certain parts of history may have happened, However here in Artoria, The world is as much a living being as you or i, It has a will of it’s own, a mind and a life. Here be wary where you tread, As mistreating the locale you’re in may inspire it to strike back.

Below you will find the list of some of the most Notable locations in our grand world,

The Six Great Kingdoms : In the ancient days, the world was created through fellowship. This fellowship was created by the Mortal races has lasted through any hardship that can be imagined, And Created civilization that not even the gods could remove from the earth.

Titanhome – The Ark of Gigas : In the southwest of the great kingdoms lies the continent in the sky. Titanhome is the great floating kingdom of Gigas, The king of Titans. Secluded, The Titans keep to themselves, Until it’s time for the world to Re-create itself.

The Animus Ocean : It was said that when the gods left the mortal realm of Artoria, Not all of them went. The Animus Ocean surrounds the Great continent, It’s thick mist’s radiate great energy, It radiates with power of the Arcane, The Divine, and Power of the soul. However few souls have ever been able to survive the treacherous fog while keeping their own sanity.

The Primal Lands : To the East of the great continent lies the Primal Lands. This was once a great Kingdom along with the others. However during the Godswar, They were the first to fall. Since then the Knowledge and History of that kingdom has been lost, and the Land surrounding The gate to Heaven has fallen into a state of primordial disrepair. Creatures live here that have not existed in the civilized lands for eons.

“When you can no longer see, And the shadows fill your breath, You will know me”

In a world composed of beings that can create their own future.
Their own destiny.
There will always be those whom have a different way of thinking,
Those whom have thoughts most people cannot encompass while keeping their own sanity.
Killers,
Cultists,
Rapists
And people drawing on powers that even the most depraved mind could never imagine.

The minds that have Crafted these evil souls hold nothing sacred in their minds,
Even taking the souls of the Innocent that have been ripped from their living bodies,
Forced into a life of slavery under those whom would control and command the spirits of the lost.

There are also those Whom believe that their calling is something much darker,
Hearing words of Death, Destruction and Hatred being spoken into their mind by those whom were thought to create out world.
Some take orders from the Gods,
But not the Forgiving, Merciful gods that bless us with bountiful harvest and miracles.
Instead they follow the gods that bring War, Pestilence, Famine and Death.
These are the Riders of death.
Knights of Nothingness.
Creators of Despair.

On this Branch,
You will find the most depraved souls our world has known,
The tales written here have warped and twisted a section of the roots of the world,
This area is now known as the Darkened Hollow.
Where the souls of these beings live on eternally.

Here are the stories we believe your mind may handle so far.

Daimonas Sarka : Hellgrafter
When the thing you love takes the world from you,
Stealing what life you had,
and forcing you to run,
Could you keep the fleeting memory of the man you once were.

Ingram Zamora : The Weaver of Nightmares
Raising yourself in a city that most seasoned adventurer’s wouldn’t think of entering can have a great effect on who you become.
However when the King of Madness wants you for his toy,
He will stop at nothing.

Celene Maxia: The Blood-witch of the Arcane Empire
Once you’ve reached the top of your art,
Very few things can bring you down.
But when family seemingly turns on you,
Can you find the energy to survive?

In this world Myths are handed down, Stories of the Gods, And of their Children, Slaying Great Beasts, Overcoming Incredible odds to achieve Victory. When brought to face these incredible odds though, It takes not only an amazing hero to create a tale as epic as the legends of ages past…

Epic_War_Game_Wallpaper_51__1920x1080_4716

The tales would never be complete without the Clash, The Conflict that causes the world to Shake. To stand up to these Despots that attempt to control all in their sight, It takes a person cut from a certain cloth. To sacrifice what most of these souls have, To fight for Peace, To fight for Honor, To fight for the lives of those that cannot protect themselves, These stories are carved here on the root of the world tree.The ones that have earned their place among the heroes find themselves on the Highest boughs of the roots of the world.To keep them in the Pantheon of greats, They will live forever in  The Sanctified Grove

However… there are some people that just enjoy watching things burn to the ground, This world is full of people whom would take a life as easily as taking a breath. While the heroes show the Epitome of the light side of our world, This will never be enough to reveal all of those hidden in the Darkness. Those whom fight to Control. To Incite fear in the masses,To destroy all that others have worked to gain. These are the Darkest hearts to exist in our world, And without them, The Heroes stories would have been nothing but false prophecies and tales for the campfire, However the tales told of these dark souls are as unfortunate as they are true, Recording these tales have taken quite a toll on the world roots, Slowly corrupting these branches, However none should be able to forget the horrible things that have been Completed in this world.

Along this path, you will find the stories that haunt our world, And hear the stories of countless lives lost, Continue here to The Darkened Hollow

The world is Created from so many Different Stories, Legends and Myths, In this day and age, This is called “History”. However here when carved into the roots of the world. All of these Legends play out at once, Heroes can live in their Greatest Moment, Villains live in times of their most power. Even the Innocent people live in a time when peace is all they wish for the rest of eternity. But there is more to this world than just those people. While here, Consider yourself a Guest of myself. Browse the legends of my world, The tales of great beasts, Dragons, Elemental Beings, and creatures bound to shadows darker than our most fearsome nightmares. Kept underneath of the Roots we hold their stories, The Reliquary of the Beasts is a terrifying place. But the bravest of Souls have much to learn from the creatures that are held there.

Even Among a world with Monsters breathing fire, Wizards Creating Everything from Nothing, Where Miracles from the gods Happen before my eyes, There are places in this world that will leave a man staring, As though he’s only just seeing for the first time, Locations in which great power Lives, Thrives and Creates these effects on people.  These wondrous sights change people when they gaze upon them, Some Revitalizing the spirit and soul, Bringing happiness to the most Down Trodden of people, Some of these sights can take the spirit just as quickly as the others brought joy. We’ve kept track of areas in which this will happen, And named them the Locations of Wonder

“When the darkness seems consuming, Look within, and I will be there.”

In a world where the thoughts of a single person can create sorrow and suffering for a great number of people,
There are those that stand against all of this,
Heroes of light that send away the harsh darkness that
The balance is kept in a very fragile state,
for all terrible acts,
an equal amount of good is sent into our world to keep this balance,
This is what keeps us safe.

The Darkness will never end it’s Reach,
Grasping at the Pure of heart,
The Innocent,
The souls that have done no wrong,
Looking to condemn them.
We stand to stop their power from expanding more,
We are the last stand between humanity and it’s own Darkened future.

Beneath here are the Records of those whom have stood against the Destruction of the Mortal Races,
They will forever live here in the Sanctified Grove.

The Chosen
Originally the Gods created the Mortal races,
This gave them a Sense of Creation,
And of their own Power.
After the Mortal races began their Worship they gained power of the Gods,
To Create,
To Destroy,
To take life and to give it.
The Chosen were those whom the gods Idolized,
And Formed to be their own being in Mortal Form.
