The Story History

History

A thousand years ago four families settled a new community, calling it Valin. The land was lush and green with pockets of forest. A river ran from the mountains along the eastern side of the land. Resources were plentiful in this new beginning. As more and more people ended their journey in Valin it grew into a city. Their knowledge of the world and the creation of new technology transformed a once wood and stone community into a sprawling metropolis built of white concrete and glass.

Word quickly spread through travelers that a new utopian city had been birthed. The leader of the largest colony gave orders, voted and approved by the Delegates, to move the capitol to this new bastion of man. With the arrival of the Head Minister came hundreds of Delegates and their families.

Over time, the four families that founded Valin became its protectors. They were the House of Adaman, the House of Arin, the House of Ire, and the House of Leer. As they took the role of the military in their hands they were titled the Simra, by the civilians. They wanted no part in capital politics and had their own tower constructed opposite the Capitol Tower. This separation and the completion of the Simra Tower created a rift between the Delegates and the Simra that still remains.

The Valins became complacent but quickly jolted themselves back into curiosity. Dreaming of faraway lands and a world beyond their shores enticed them to begin an age of exploration. Hundreds of ships sailed from the docks near Valin. Few ever returned.

The ones who made it home spoke little of their travels. There was a strange fear that briefly crept over Valin when it was discovered that Delegates locked away any documents which returned with a sea weary captains or battle hardened Simra.

It was agreed upon by both the Head Minister and the leaders of the Simra that knowledge of certain places should not be spread through the public. As usual, some stories made it out, but were quickly dismissed and became known as legends.

A moderately sized island was discovered in the South Eastern Sea. The Delegates decided to place a colony there to expand Valin’s borders. Their pride would not allow them to ask for Simra help or protection. After only a few months they received word that the entire colony had died. The Delegates realizing their folly agree to accept Simra help from that point forward.

Being a location of great value and position, Valin was eventually attacked by grey, thick skinned creatures calling themselves the Brask. These humanoid beasts stood a head above most humans and were bred for battle. The war only lasted one week. The Simra fought valiantly but in the end were overcome by the Brask.

Valin fell.
