The Stars Are Right
Also known colloquially as the Southern Kingdom, Albion denotes the lands previously settled by the empire of Nerath on Brython Isle. This region is now unified under the rule of a single king of the Vortigen dynasty. Over the last 40 years, Albion has been involved in a series of wars with the people of the Northlands in an attempt to “civilize” them.
Albion began as a series of settlements on the southern end of the isle during Nerath’s dominance of the western world. The first of these was Dunvic, now the largest city and capital of the Southern Kingdom. After the empire’s collapse, the settlements were left to fend for themselves. Many former provincial governors and city leaders set themselves up as self-styled nobility, claiming baronies or dukedoms, as happened on the Continent at this time. However, a Nerathi general, Lord Arturus Vortigen declared himself king of all the civilized lands on the Isle, and used his military prowess and the loyalty of his former legionnaires to crush any that opposed him. That was nearly 100 years ago. Now, Queen Tianna Vortigen rules and has decided to forge a peace with the untamable people of the Northlands.
