Patrick’s Vigil

Patrick’s Vigil

In the time of the Great War with the demons, there was a Prince who sacrificed himself and his freedom to bring the races together, Prince Patrick Eventide the First. Patrick swore allegiance to the fey court and because of that he was forced to leave his people. While many would find this prison unbearable, Patrick made the best of it as he could. He didn’t wallow in sorrow but he strived to learn as much from the fey as possible. On the occasion of his first birthday, the Queen of the fey came to Patrick and offered to grant him one wish but that wish would only last for the day.

Patrick’s wish was simple, his wish was to be able to go visit the children to make sure they were doing well despite the war...

Royal Invitation

To the Heroes who gathered in Verinfall;

As the newly appointed First Ambassador of Altera His Royal Highness, Prince Patrick XXXIX, has tasked me with the organization and oversight of events surrounding his coronation.  It is therefore my responsibility and pleasure to invite all of you to Colstean on January the 13th of the coming year for such celebrations as I can arrange given the circumstances.

Royal Proclamation of Patrick XXXIX Crown Prince of Altera

I, Patrick XXXIX Crown Prince of Altera, and Lord Regent until such time as the formal coronation can be had, formally declare that the Great Exile established by Hector I has regrettably failed.

The Elder Races that were once no more than myth have begun to slowly return and without doubt will reshape the world as we know it.  For three thousand years this has been a world ruled through the superiority of human will. Now the threat is imminent that we may once again  be oppressed by beings not of this world.  

At a gathering that we hosted in the Alteran village of Verinfall an Emissary approached the gathered persons with an offer to create rules of war, for war is inevitable, between humans and the returning Demon Hordes...

It began as all avalanches do, with one small stone rolling down a mountain, unnoticed and unremarkable. It started in a field near the wagon stop of Verinfall that one small stone was found by quite by accident. A small bit of stone was uncovered by recent rains and runoff. That small stone led to ruins buried in several millennia of dirt and mud which led to a full excavation by the Bardic College. Say what you will, but the Alteran...

Welcome

The best thing about Altera are the Bards. On any given night, in any given tavern in any of the five kingdoms, you can find one of the College’s Bards telling stories, singing songs, acting out pageantries, or in any number of ways amusing the large crowds with stories from long ago – the stories of knights and dragons, wizards and witches, the legends of how the ancients made our world safe for all of mankind. For children, they are the lifeblood of excitement and the dreams with which they go to bed. For adults, they are just mythology and legends.

For three thousand years, the world had been safe from monsters and magic. King Eventide had put an end to those threats and all knew him by his face printed on every coin...
