Thanks to de Gothia for the motivation, have been wanting to create a thread like this since I started Circardia and GoH and his blueprint was great. Sorry for the length of the post and I plan on adding to it and modifying over time. Most the photos are also links to the original thread of the builds shown. Hope you enjoy! County Of Circardia Task III Circardia is a county on the main island of the Enchanted Forest in Western Avalonia. Circardia is largely defined by natural features. Along the northern edge of Circardia is the Lleyln River, a wide, fast moving river with rocky riverbanks and teaming with fish. The eastern border is created by the Isca River. Similar to the Lleyln River, it is wide and fast moving with many areas dominated by rapids and small waterfalls. While the rapids and waterfalls of the two rivers make river travel difficult for anyone but the most experience river guides, they form a natural defense. The southern border is defined by the Bay of Orthus. The coast is largely rocky cliffs but thriving with an abundance of fish, crabs and shellfish. The western border is marked by a large lake and the “wilds” of the Enchanted Forest. There are four main settlements in Circardia. The Hamlet of Circardia is the largest and the center of trade. To the north is the village of Borland. Along the south coast is Cartoth, and in the southeastern part of the county is Revel.

Orthus had fled his homeland about 45 years ago after trouble with the local lord and the law. A great woodsman and skilled warrior, Orthus and his group of companions settled in the eastern part of the Enchanted Forest. The group quickly banded together for protection against outlaw bands and ill creatures of the Forest. Overtime the group grew and began families. Other wayward souls settled in the area and before long, a village sprang up along the banks of the mighty Isca River.

After finishing the initial training, an individual wishing to graduate the Phoenix Guard must survive an arduous initiation and loyalty test including surviving 30 days in the wilds of the Enchanted Forest with only the clothes on their back and a dagger. Once complete, loyalty to the Guard and Circardia is unwavering.
