A SHORT CHRONICLE OF NEW BRITANNIA

In the ancient past, New Britannia had two moons. However, five hundred years ago during the Cataclysm, the two orbiting bodies collided, leaving behind the shattered remnant that is now known as Daedalus.

Abandoned by the mighty Avatars and their Virtues, those who remained after the Cataclysm were left defenseless in an untamed land. That is, until the Obsidians came. Through dark sorcery and overwhelming force, the Obsidian Empire brought order to chaos, no matter the cost.

The Obsidian Order understood the power unleashed by fall and learned to harness it, creating abominations to serve them and destroy those who dared oppose them. Two hundred years ago they waged war intent on ruling the realm, but were eventually checked and defeated.

FATEFUL HISTORY

  • New Britannia still bears scars from the Cataclysm, even after all this time. Enormous, crystalline, black stones plunged into the earth like jagged blades, introducing a powerful but wild magic that corrupted all that it touched.
  • The Obsidian Empire eventually fell, and though it has taken centuries, the shattered cities have been rebuilt. Guided by the Titans under watch of the mysterious Oracle, the people attempted to restore the Principle Virtues of Truth, Love, and Courage from the scraps of what came before.
  • Novia was divided into separate regions as the people attempted to restore the Principle Virtues of Truth, Love, and Courage from the scraps of what came before.
