Brave New World
The NW area of the world that our adventure takes place in is the most ordered, educated, unified and united section on the planet. The planet is often referred to as “The Tomorrow Expanse” or the “This New World” but lacks a singular proper noun. Both science and magic agree this world is a new expansion or inversion of what existed before and as such is not the same territory divided world that one normally expects to find in a fantasy setting. These alliances and borders are just starting to form and the Leowolf Knights and the Triviu exemplify this expanding sense of order.
This NW continent is called Akari to those living within it and “The Reflecting Moon” by those who live in cities and tribes outside the borders. While much of the world is yet to become aware of itself or the other people and races in it, Akari is the hub of civilization.
The Trivium are three Kingdoms: Itys, Kilstonine and Cthonia within reasonable proximity of each other that banded together for unified protection. The area was also home to a plethora of Dragons, both chromatic and metallic whom seemed consistently at odds with each other and their scuffles and bids for land and control rolled over into human cites.
Basic human understanding of dragons is as simple as that chromatic dragons (red, green, blue, black, white, brown, pick a colour) are followers of Tiamat and are agents of chaos and that metallic (Gold, silver, palladium, you name it) follow Bahamut and seek for order.
The Trivium in uniting founded the Leowolf Knights on the back of one of its greatest families and lead originally by Lionel Leowolf forged a play with Nyvarreid, The Powerful – a Bronze dragon leader – and together achieved stability in the area, driving most chromatic dragons from the lands and founding Avalon, a recruit station where attendants can enter the Leowolf Knights without prejudice.

The Leowolf Knights
The Leowolf Knights are a central unified army serving and protecting three nations. The Kingdoms of Itys, Kilstonine and Cthonia all provide funding, troops and supplies to the cause. The Leowolf Knights were founded by Lionel Leowolf close to forty-nine years ago as a standing allied truce between the three nations.
Further solidifying this unity the Leowolf Knights formed also acknowledging an alliance with the large Metallic Dragon population in the area. For the first time in history Dragons (typically nomadic and alone) and Mankind formally joined forces.
For nearly fifty years the Leowolf Knights have protected the trifecta of nations loyally and successfully, reaching a time now of relative peace. Most of the efforts of the Knights now are spent outside the boarders of the three nations. The Knights of Leowolf often lend protection to smaller city states and help in peace keeping disputes of other kingdoms.
The nations of Itys, Kilstonine and Cthonia all provide cadets for training into the Leowolf Knights. The substantial pay, the prestige, the half-pay pension and land allotment make service in the night core a desirable and respected occupation. The Leowolf Knights are the most revered fighting force in the land.
The main leadership of the Leowolf Knights are known as the The Hokuten. These Nine Knights are the most legendary in the combined lands of the Trivium. They are generals, magistrates, emissaries and prelates of the Knights, each over seeing a key operation. To be promoted to one of the Legendary Hokuten is one of the greatest honours and individual can accomplish.
For the last ten years the 1st General of the Hokuten was Leo Leowolf. Son of the founding Lionel Leowolf. Recently Leo was found to be consorting with the Cult of Tiamat as a sect leader, there was a great confrontation between Anjel and Leo resulting in Leo’s death and Anjel suffering grievous wounds. Anjel and Roenick, being close friends took time away from the Leowolf Knights but have now returned. Roenick was promoted to First General, King ’Morrow to Second and Anjel to Third. The fourth general spot was filled by Gaara of the Sands.
These events are still fresh in the minds of everyone in Avalon. The Leowolf name is no longer trusted. Though Tetravus Leowolf still serves as one of the Nine Knights, it is under a careful watchful eye of the rest, particularly Irielove – prelate of the The Hokuten.
The union of the three nations is known as the Trivium. Broken down into the following nations.
