Beluaterra is a young land constantly plagued by invasions of various types.  Mankind, a fractious lot at best, must periodically contend with foul and fearsome beasts rampaging, and worse, with the walking dead. More recently, daimons have invaded and begun owning regions. At times it gets so bad that it seems that the men of Beluaterra will be driven back into the seas.
 
 
 
Some view this as a curse: they claim that men were not meant to rule this wild land.  Others see an opportunity: vast swaths of uninhabited wilderness, rogue regions just waiting to be conquered, whole realms waiting to be founded and forged into something stronger than the soft and comfortable realms of [[Atamara]] and [[East Island]], something greater and nobler than the brutish tribes of the South Islands.
 
 
 
This island is distant from the others, and things don't always work the same here, as they do elsewhere.

Beluaterra. more maps...
Beluaterra
The bountiful New World enticed many to make the perilous journey across the Western Ocean from the strife of East Continent. Alas those early colonists had not discovered virgin lands, but an eldritch wilderness home to other creatures.

Terrible creatures. Inhuman creatures. Creatures who do not suffer the tread of humans. Creatures who will rise up in great hosts intent on destroying the stain of humanity on the land.

Thus when the straggling survivors returned to the east with tales of hideous abominations, the New World came to be known by a different name Beluaterra - Monster World.


Despite it all, the untamed wilderness calls to the brave and the bold for here any can make their fortune. A continent of flux and opportunity, the ever shifting map can be painted with your ambition. Maybe you will found the kingdom that stands the test of time, or be the champion rallying your fellows against the inhuman hordes. Or will you take a darker path, delving into forbidden lore and making deals with daimonic forces.

Choose, and write your own destiny.

Invasions
In most lands the seasons turn from the warmth of summer to the bite of winter. Beluaterra too has seasons; the warmth of peace and the bite of Invasion. None can say exactly when the next invasion will come, or what shape it will take, but all know that it will come.

During an invasion the monsters, undead & daimons will rise in great number threatening to overwhelm the human lands. Many realms will fall under the tide of teeth and claw, refugees scattering across the world. But each time the people of Beluaterra have risen to the challenge and struck back at the darkness. But these victories were costly and the land still bears the scars of the past.

Some invasions have been a matter of enduring whatever phase of the moon has instilled such vigor in the creatures. Others have more personal origin as monsters, undead & daimons used the ravaged continent as a battle ground for their own feuds. Great portals have been closed, other worlds explored, mysteries unraveled through dreams and dark deals struck. The next invasion could be even stranger still.

Even outside of the invasions a new arrival should expect to do battle frequently as their patrols will take them through dangerous territories. It is not all violence though, as many of the greatest works have come from these lands under siege.

Either way prepare yourself for you will be needed.
