Welcome to Dark Age: Redemption

From Dark Age Redemption

The land of Leanantla lies in chaos -- its people struggle to rebuild some semblance of peace and order.

It has been over a hundred years since the sudden, utter destruction of Mercia, the greatest kingdom of men. Civilization in Leanantla crumbled in the wake of the nation's passing. Was it magic, monsters, demons, or fire from the heavens? Though the story is not old, the details already seem to be lost to time. What is certain that mankind in Leanantla had been pushed to the brink of extinction, as they scattered to all corners of the land to escape the forces that assailed them.

Their great cities toppled, and their histories systematically destroyed, the focus of all turned to survival. The bloodshed and infighting that followed seemed to finally toll the death-knell.

And yet, in its darkest hour, the remnants of man have found a foothold in the city Greycastle. Built upon the ashes of Mercia, Greycastle stands as a beacon to mankind, drawing those remnants from all former nations and walks of life into a new Federation. In it, people try to regain something of what was lost: their structure, their histories, their faith, their humanity.

But time flows like a river… and history repeats itself.

Forces unknown press at this final bastion of mankind. The only question lies in how you stand during this dark age.
