At Epoch Games, we are dedicated to quality and ambition in all aspects of our project. As most of you know, many of us are veterans from the MERP team and so the scale and ambition of our work should come as no surprise to you. Lays of Althas: Sundered Order, our current project, is an open world fantasy roleplaying game set in a universe of our own creation. In the coming weeks, we will be walking you through a gradual introduction of the people, places, history, and events of this new world.
The lands of Althas, the setting of Lays of Althas : Sundered Order, are part of the world known as Jevreth. The birthplace of Man, Althas is divided into seven regions, originally seven Kingdoms: Anorthile, Driesefair, Gorandel, Lamniemalos, Narthendar, Nosmalos, and Vishethas. These were the Anointed Kingdoms, the first kingdoms of Men.
Even in its early days, Althas has been a land shaken by conflicts. In the early days, these conflicts pitted the Anointed Kingdoms of Men against the dark and demonic forces that threatened them. However, with the passage of time the world has changed. With the Anointed order eroding away and new powers rising, another war looms on the horizon, a war brought on by Man's own actions. Thenodar, a burgeoning new kingdom in the North, and Anorthile, one of the last of the three remaining Anointed Kingdoms, now prepare for a war that will shake all of Althas. Old demons and new enemies gather in the shadows of both lands as each sets their sights on the ruined wilderness known as the Feralands.
And with that Lays of Althas is "officially" announced and we invite you to join us over at our forums at www.epochgames.co.uk/forum, where any interested in joining can apply.
