Scales of War
Albor is an area on the east side of the continent, which is surrounded on all sides by the Boundary. It was one of the three great kingdoms of ancient times. After the Boundary went up 1,000 years ago, rumors abounded that the gods were responsible. Several cities and many smaller villages took part in the wholesale slaughter of priests of all gods. This period of time became known as The Purge.
In the power void left by the priests, users of arcane magic rose to power, and the kingdom as a political entity disintegrated. The large cities all came under the control of a sorcerer of some sort. Soon, the cities went to war as the sorcerer-kings each tried to gain dominance. Many died in what became known as the Wizard Wars. Some cities were entirely destroyed, while others were abandonded, and lost.
In modern times, only one major city remains in Albor – the city of Arcavius.
