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.
OOC Note: This is a testing continent, so expect to see bugs as new features are tested and improved.

Features

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.

The fabled Agyrian Academy remains the premier institute for the learned. The great libraries contain volumes uncounted, in languages both familiar and strange. Artifacts from bygone ages rest next to the cutting edge of design. Within these walls a man could discover anything, for even the Age of Ruin was recorded with care.

For those with questions, be they noble or commoner, they will find answers within.
