About the mod[edit | edit source]

Lore Introduction[edit | edit source]

The year is 1444. The Fourth and final Lilac War is over. Immeasurable Lorentish and Anbennarian blood has been spilled, but peace has returned to the Empire under the Rose Party. The House of Silioriel keeps its grip on the throne of Lorent, and has finally defeated its ancient enemies the Grand Duchy of Dameria. Lothane III of Wex now sits the Imperial throne, the profits of his betrayal of the House of Silmuna and his imperial Allies. Trouble brews on the horizon for the victorious kingdom, though, as the Kingdom of Gawed, the ancient enemies of the Lorent, look south, hungry to seize the lucrative borderlands in the Small Country from the war-torn realm.

In the west, the mournful elves of Venail look out at the waves and remember the ages they spent upon them, desperate and searching. They dream of a return to the land long lost, the land they once called home. Aelantir awaits for those bold-- or foolhardy-- enough to claim it, though Aelantir is not just a new homeland. In ancient temples and crumbling ruins hide secrets long forgotten-- secrets that threaten to upturn the secular and religious order of Cannor.

To the east, the dust has settled on a war of divine proportions: the Avatar of Agrados, Corin, has slain the Dookanson in single combat, routing the endless green horde but martyring herself in the process. The adventurers of Escann mourn, but their job has just begun: with the destruction of the horde, the fertile fields and plains of the east may bloom again.

Far beneath the petty concerns of the humans or elves, the stalwart Dwarves wage an endless war against the ancient enemy. Though the greentide emptied the caverns of the orcs, stragglers and roaming warbands-- not to mention the native goblins-- still haunt the crevices and roads of the Dwarovar, skirmishing and raiding. The Dwarves, in ancient holds or in adventuring bands, test the waters, opening the gates and starting to reclaim their long lost homeland. Every Dwarf-- from Rubyhold to Ovdal Kanzad-- chases that same dream-- Aul Dwarov, the Empire of Dwarves.

Halann holds more secrets than just dwarves, humans and elves. Legionary hobgoblins, rampaging centaur hordes, fey forest warfare, and gnomish Artificer tanks all hide in strange corners of the world. Experience the evolution of a fantastic world as it deals with the impacts of colonialism, industrialization, artificiery, and the Age of the Witch King.
