Lore :


Ashania is divided into two parts, the west and the east. The west part deals with sea trading while the east handles mining and land trading. While it is possible, it is extremely difficult for a single lord to handle all the ongoing affairs in the kingdom. Lord Bornia Sangrey therefore assigned two of his cousins to run the kingdom together with him. Lady Lace Moonfall run the east side of the kingdom and Lord Alex Sangrey take over all the administrative work in the kingdom.

Under these lord, there are multiply adviser for them to consult their decision with. The first line of adviser, mainly a group of four, are called the Redcap. The second line of adviser, normally serving the Redcap and consist of a group of 17, are called the Savant. With all the Redcaps and Savants together, they are consisted the council. Each lord had a council of his own.

On the eastern Ashania, there are multiply brothel and illegal drug store around the street. It is said that Lady Lace profit from these outlet and allowed their existences to continue, even thrive in Ashania. While on the west, Lord Bornia seems uninterested in governing his kingdom. Slave trading and public execution is a norm in western Ashania. Rumours had that Lord Bornia is just a puppet, being controlled by his cousins and his council, living a life in bliss and ignorances.


Chapter 1: The Meeting

Chapter 1 : The Meeting


A dark elf was on her horse, riding sluggishly through the green plains. Her ebony skin shimmered under the moon, her piercing gaze scanning through the landscape. She could spot what seems to be a castle standing tall in the distances, and a campfire not so far away from her. With the castle on sight, she rode off toward the direction of the campfire. She got off her horse and just when she was about to offered her greetings to the lone figure at the campfire, her instinct screamed at her. The figure emits an eerie, unnatural aura around him. He sat quietly, without any movements with his back facing her. Under the cloak, her hand instinctively went to her side, touching the handle of her scythe.

“I want no trouble, traveler.” The lone figures began. With her hand still at the handle, she moved around into the sight of the ghastly figure.

“Well met. Oh… I see. Dark skin, white hair. It is quite rare to see your kind around this region.” He greeted.

“If you know my kind, you know what deeds they have done. Aren’t you afraid of me?”

“Not if I can profit from our meeting!”

“You want me to protect your goods on your way to Ashania.” She understood the notions of his words.

“I am glad! Sellswords are unusually expensive these days. And I am sure bandits will not be stupid enough to attack your kind.”

“And what profit is waiting for me after escorting you?”

“How about these delicious dried Mutaki meat? Or the hare stew? Or I can show you wonderful deals for weapons and armors at the vast kingdom!”

“All of them. We will set off at dawn.” The dark elf snatched the dried meat from his hands, help herself with some stew at the fire and proceeded to lay down on the floor.

“Before we rest, perhaps we could exchange names. I am Ima. Ima Richards. Yours?”


The South Gate of Ashania

At dawn, they were riding towards the kingdom, but somehow both of them felt weird. It felt like something was staring at them, or at Ashania. They dismissed that notions and before they knew it, they were at the south gate of Ashania. The gate stood tall and grand, and at the top they could see a guard waving at them, shouting. The duet could not make up what he was trying to do. The guard threw his hand up in frustration, and shouted as loud as he could.

“Wait there!”

A few moments later, a voice asked, “Business o’ pleasure?”

The two could not find where the voice was coming from.

Lore: Transportation


Land Transportation

The Kingdom of Ashania is set in a world called, Miriandynus. Transportation in Miriandynus is troublesome, very troublesome. Traders and merchants travels with their goods, using mainly animal-drawn wheeled vehicle. Utilising horse, donkey, camel, sometimes even elephant and mutaki. 

Mutaki is a type of mammal, a hybrid between a cow and snail, with a hard shell covering its neck, hind legs and body. Mutaki is about 15 feet tall and weighs around 18,000lbs, their shells come in different sizes, shapes and patterns. The most prized Mutaki usually come from the far east side to Ashania, the one with a matte black, dome-like shell on its back, only reveals its beautiful colours and patterns under moonlight . It is said that Mutaki can carry goods up to thrice its body weight, saving traders and merchants an extra trip, with the only disadvantage being its slow speed.

In the world of Miriandynus, bandits and beast often loitered around the forests near the trading roads, ambushed any traders and travellers alike. To combat such problems, sellswords were hired to guard the caravan from such attacks during its trip. However, mercenary is hard to come by and usually comes with a high price.

Therefore, merchants and trader utilizes a technique called Inna da Inna to distract its enemy.

Inna da Inna is an elvish word for basket to basket, utilizing a minimum of three wheeled vehicles to successfully pull off the technique. The caravan will travel in a straight roll, with most of its valuable items in the middle wagon. The first and the last vehicles usually contains fake gems, jewelries and sometimes food. When an attack is launched, traders will abandon its first and last wagon to the enemy, fleeing with only the middle one.

Lore: Ashania and The Black Mountain



The story revolves around Ashania, a flourishing, opulent and peaceful kingdom. A place where Elves, Dwarfs and Humans lived together under Lord Bornia’s rule.


The kingdom was comprised of Lord Bornia’s castle located on the top of the hill with several towns surrounding it. The mines near Ashania were rich with rare minerals, precious gems and strong metals, allowing craftsmen to craft armors, weapons etc. unrivaled by neighbouring countries.

Its strategic location allows trading by both land and sea. All trade roads and sea routes that leads to Ashania were well protected and traders were attracted to Ashania due to its quality goods and exotic markets. Surrounding towns provides food and tax monthly. In return, they were protected from monsters and bandits.

Ashania’s military power were a force to be reckoned with. All Ashanian soldiers were well-trained and accustomed to battle on land and sea. Ashania were able to lay siege on neighbouring countries, mobilizing only half of its troops to do so. With busy markets and military prowess, Ashania were able to keep good relationship with neighbouring nations, benefiting each other with the long, undisturbed peace.



The Black Mountain

The Black Mountain was located hundreds of miles to the south of Ashania. It was shunned by local Ashanians. Beasts, bandits and traders kept away from the mountain pass. Its ominous presences towered over Ashania, the black peak could be seen by all people from the vast kingdom.

The Black Mountain

The mountain was sheer and craggy, with parts resembles a tower or man-made architecture. Its presences had affected Ashania greatly, appearing in Ashanian’s folktales from time to time, symbolising great evil. What secrets was hidden in the Black Mountain? No one would ever know.


You have arrived at Ashania. Flying colours and cheery shouts filled the streets of Ashania. A festival was happening. As you were roaming around, experiencing the jolly, wonderful atmosphere of the crowds, a wave of darkness and unease hit your mind. You broke into a cold sweat, when you saw a vision.

A vision, of great fire engulfing the town around you, horrid creatures ripping townsfolk apart bits by bits. The Black Mountain to the south grew larger and larger, towering over Ashania, casting its black shadow upon the despaired faces of Ashanians.

You shook your head violently, the vision dissipated. You looked around and noticed. Amidst of all the celebration, the black peak of the mountain stood ominously behind the kingdom’s landscape. What was the vision about? What secret does the mountain hide? You stared at the black peak, panting heavily.

She stared back.
