The Civil War of Annesia

The kingdom, once a beautiful and prosperous land, has fallen. Thousands of years of unrelenting war has shattered it into three new lands, and their history is all but forgotten. The now ruined capitol of the kingdom of old has been found, and myth claims that it holds a gemstone so powerful, one kingdom could destroy the others, and rise up to become the most powerful in existence.


1. The Peace that was Forgotten

    In a forgotten millennium, the three kingdoms, Thaelbracuna, Hierdelicia, and Styrenesia, were united as the nation of Annesia. At the heart of Annesia was the Diamond of Unity, purest and most magnificent of all power crystals. It was by the power of the diamond and the will of the three kings that the capitol city, Oristalis, stood proudly declaring the might, resilience, and brilliance of the people. Each kingdom had responsibilities to one another, and upholding their responsibilities maintained peace and prosperity.
    Thaelbracuna specialized in the forging of the tools, armor, weapons, jewelry, and other such metal goods. Their land, streaked with massive deposits of iron, gold, silver, copper, and tin, yielded more than enough metal for these purposes, and none could rival the magma-heated furnaces they cut deep into the rock of the mountain. Its people were passionate, stubborn, and headstrong, guided by their hearts and ideals, which could be changed by no other. Rubies were their crystals, which were associated with fire magic, reflecting their hot-headed personality and the scorched earth on which they roamed.
    Styrenesia's talents lain in the vast expanses and rapid rivers of water which divided it into hundreds of islands. They could control the water, leading it to wherever it was needed, or harnessing the immense energy of rivers. Their genius was without compare. Often, they knew far more than they spoke of, keeping their thoughts secret, revealing them only if it was to their benefit. They held sapphires as their jewel, which were the source of water magic, as their minds moved with both the celerity and the silence of a stream.
    Hierdelicia was the source of all food and natural resources in Annesia. It's territory was an explosion of color, with verdant fields of corn, bright red and yellow apples, purple grapes, and flowers of every color, shape, and size imaginable. Where its land was  not cultivated, it was an unkempt, wild jungle. The simple lives and the gradual, yet consistent growth of their farms taught them patience. They learned to consider every option entirely, before making decisions, and to ignore their whims. Emeralds were their gem, giving them earth magic, reflecting the resilient, yet slow way they functioned, and their ability to grow nearly anything.
