Long before Avalonia was founded as a Guild, five beacons were erected. They were lit aflame to symbolize peace on the fair plains they stood upon. In this age however settlers have inhabited these lands far more, and the rituals the pre-Avalonians created to light the beacons dissapeared with their deaths. Only one remains alive and he alone lights one beacon to this day every night.
Peace has grown thin with elementals raging about. The people of Burrium are far from calm, so it was decided that the beacons were lit once more. It was thought that with the symbol of peace alive, true peace would follow. No such luck...
The Caltar beacon of the Village of Caltar was last of these beacons to be lit having received the message from the river Kingdom of Denitor last. The flame had only just began to grow when...
...the Air Elemental formed from nothingness. The village was iradicated. No one survived.
Here is a close up of our distressed villagers.
A mother and father running to their oblivious child.
The other armed but frightened villagers (and a horse).
This poor man has the horror of watching the chaos from atop the beacon.
You ruined the Dumb Blonde's hair...
But what of the other Beacons? They stay erected and are lit every night according to the old ritual in honor of the dead of Caltar. It also is quite a beautiful sight of east Darwynia.
This is the home of the only man who knew the old ritual. He trained the other beacon lighters, and used to be the only one who would light his
beacon, the Beacon of Reynar Hill, every night.
This is the river Kingdom of Denitor. Albeit small it is quite the lively coastal town, and is home to the Beacon of Denitor.
This beacon is the Beacon of Orlan. It is said to have been erected in honor of a great warrior of the past who lives eternally somewhere in Avalonia in a deep sleep, waiting for a time he would be needed once more. This beacon also serves as a lighthouse to warn of its rocky surroundings.
This is the Beacon of Dalios. Lying at the top of the hill village of Dalios. This Beacon is further inland than the Beacon of Orlan but generally serves the same purpose these days.
Here are some closeups of the Elemental,
And images of the village home,
Sorry for the orange glow from a light on my camera on that one.
And the Beacon of Caltar.
And last of all, mini-West Burrium.
And that concludes it. Sorry for some fuzzy images but most detail is still visible.
C&C is welcome!
Beware little Shepherd...
