There was a time when the world asked ordinary men to do extraordinary things.

LOLK FINE ACTUAL STORY QUOTE
The land of Lutealeska shan't succumb to the Opiate; not while the maegyk Hiemalis remains.
- Krieg Regenwolke
• LUTEALESKA IS AN INVISIBLE ISLAND SMACK-DAB IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN. NEARLY EQUIDISTANT FROM THE US AND EUROPE.
• SO YEAH basically a magical country with a unique culture made up of many existing ones.
• Anachronistic society.
• How does this country remain invisible, you ask? WELL. It's not really that it's invisible; the flow of time has been manipulated around its waters so it's constantly shifting through spaces in time. O MAN. This causes problems for people who leave it and, well, try to find it again.
• THE COUNTRY ITSELF is a vast array of every type of terrain you can imagine!! Wonky magic does wonky things to condense climates apparently. It's also split into TWELVE CULTURAL DISTRICTS/SECTORS settled by people of different existing nations whose ships "RANDOMLY" (lol the magic grabbed them) ended up harboring there.
• MAGIC KEEPS THE LAND HEALTHY AND ALIVE AND PROSPEROUS.
• The anachronistic tendencies: their order of history AND scientific status is all over the place because whatever explorers leave and make it back do so in some out-of-history's-true-sequence order. It'd be like SO HITLER TRIED TO TAKE OVER EUROPE YESTERDAY AND THEN COLUMBUS LANDED ON AMERICA. Yeah. And same goes for science - they have high-tech stuff for the army communication department, but no cars. Because that land was not meant for cars. lolol. And things like that.
• Once upon a time there was a WILD and UNTAMED land that nobody knew existed because it HOPPED TIME oops.
• THERE WAS A MAGICAL TRIBE OF PEOPLE that lived on it, however, and in the BEGINNINGS OF THIER EXISTENCE they started to use their magics to pull the ships of immigrants and random ~WORTHY~ peoples to COME AND POPULATE AND DOMESTICATE AND COEXIST with the land!!
• OKAY BUT then this DARKNESS, referred to as THE OPIATE, began to infect people's HEARTS and turn them to EVIL o no!!
• SO THIS PROPHECY WAS GIVEN TO THE MAGICAL TRIBE BY GOD that said some soldier hero dude with CRIMSON EYES AND MIDNIGHT HAIR (lolol sparkle words) would be the SAVIOR OF THE COUNTRY otherwise it would die in the darkness oops.
• AND THEN KRIEG REGENWOLKE APPEARED
• Long story short, he FOUGHT OFF THAT DARKNESS and shattered it yay.
• So he was crowned KING OF LUTEALESKA and he and his descendents have been ruling for LOTS AND LOTS OF YEARS!
• Rite yeah but obviously people forget about heroics and THE SEEDS OF DISCONTENT ARE SEWN AMONG THE PUBLIC.
• So, ABOUT A THOUSAND YEARS LATER, DARKNESS IS GROWING IN PEOPLE'S HEARTS AGAIN. But some need no help from The Opiate - NO, SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST EVIL.
• These people gain control over A NEW IMPROVED OPIATE-TYPE DARKNESS
• And start manipulating and influencing those with GOOD INTENTIONS...BUT YOU KNOW THE ROAD TO HELL IS PAVED WITH THOSE
• FOR EXAMPLE, SOME ARE OUT TO STOP THIS TIME FLOW BUSINESS AND OPEN LUTEALESKA TO THE WORLD WHICH MIGHT BE KINDA DISASTROUS...
• And then the tribe that had control of the magic disappears a couple generations before the current king's reign OOPS
• And then the magic starts DISAPPEARING IN PLACES or going OUT OF CONTROL WEIRD in others!!
• And by the time a search party is sent out to see what happened to this tribe, the TRIBE'S LAND IS IN CRUMBLING RUINS and people have no idea what happened there.
• SO OF COURSE the people blame the current king - because who else is there to blame?
• SUDDENLY A BUNCH OF PEOPLE ARE ALL VIVA LA REVOLUTION! Because rebels and revolutionaries start popping out of the ground when DISASTER starts to spread.
• SO THE KING'S KINDA STRESSED and then he figures out that his oldest son has been TAINTED WITH EVIL INFLUENCE. So he names his second son heir apparent!
• THAT REALLY HELPED WITH HIS OLDER SON'S GROWING DARK INTERESTS.
• So this older son kills his parents at dinner in front of his DEAR little brother, runs off to plot devious things, and leaves the kingdom to fall on the shoulders of a fourteen-year-old boy.
• AND THUS BEGINS THE TRAGIC TALE OF THE DESCENDENTS OF A BLOODLINE AND THEIR STRUGGLES TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OVER MASS MENTALITY.
• From opposing sides.
TRIVIA AND RANDOM NOTES IDK
• THE MONARCHY HAS A COUNCIL MADE UP OF ONE REPRESENTATIVE FROM EACH DISTRICT. So it's kind of like. A parliamentary monarchy.
• Also there's this group of religious zealots whose leadership is actually manipulative politicians! They're called the Followers of Goddess, AKA FOGGIES, and they used to be a pretty pure group who worshiped the Goddess Gysis until they were INTERNALLY CORRUPTED though some don't know it hurhur. The Foggies are a major backer for the Revolution teehee.
• The main tongue is English, AKA Common! Everyone speaks it, though different districts have different dialects AND district languages...since each district was settled by a different country hurr.
