Akandia and "The Seven Realms"
500 years ago, the Kingdoms of Akandia were divided. Each kingdom pursued its own plans, and so there were battles among themselves for power and lands. In this chaos the shadows grew and in the back of the kingdoms the Dark Kingdom rose. Led by the Dark King Braaka’Nur, they gradually fell upon Akandia. The unbridled violence and unconscionable atrocities created fear and dread in the inhabitants. The almost indomitable power threatened to take over everything. The Dark King Braaka’Nur gathered the most powerful mages of the Dark Circle around him. He wanted to create an energy that would make every army, every show of power tremble. The sky turned black, green and purple for weeks. Violent energy storms raged that could be seen far into the land. If he generated this energy, Akandia would be lost. And so it was King Arganod, King of the Morninglands, who called all the kingdoms to him and in the face of the looming disaster, united all the kingdoms in a graceful speech. Only together would they be able to liberate Akandia and save it from the spreading darkness. Many warriors lost their lives in huge and bloody battles. In the final battle, King Arganod led his mages to the Dark Circle to stop the proceedings. Elemental spells clashed with Dark magic. The energy released there had never been seen before. And so it was uncontrollable, growing at lightning speed and unstoppable into a huge thunderstorm.
The "Eternal Storm" and "The Keeper"
This one absorbed everything around him. Mages of the kingdom and the Dark Circle, as well as the Dark King himself. Then the storm discharged with a loud bang and disappeared into nothingness, with everything inside it. Thus ended the great war and Akandia was free. But this peace would last only if the kingdoms also remained united. This was only possible if one was to watch over all. The decision was clear and the majority of the votes fell on King Arganod, who from now on was considered the first king of kings and made his throne in the Morninglands the royal seat.
A few months later, at the southern port, near the ocean Sirian, the sky darkened for a moment and with a loud bang. No one suspected or thought it possible, but what once disappeared into nothingness, returned from it. The thunderstorm of the great war. It now moved unstoppably over the lands of the south. This time, no power seemed to be able to stop it.
Again, a few days later, a being entered this world known as the Keeper. Life always seeks a balance. From darkness springs light, and from destructive energy, healing energy follows. Thus, it is the Keeper’s task to keep the Eternal Storm trapped in the southern lands and to protect Akandia from greater harm. But this task comes at a price. It takes all her strength to subdue the Eternal Eye. However, this makes her enormously vulnerable to attacks of evil. And that is why King Arganod spoke to his kingdoms. Seven of these kingdoms decided to move to the southern lands and settle there with their castles, fortresses, citadels and palaces to protect the Keeper from any attacks. The old name of this region has since disappeared from the minds of the inhabitants. It is now known only as „The Seven Realms“.
