Defense and military focused; new players welcome.


Duskforge used to be under the control of The Untainted Eye. After the first time he communed with Luna, he realized that he needed to dedicate his life to spreading her word; he could no longer care for his Duchy. After a deep meditation with Luna and Her Majesty, Rowena, Queen of Blackheart, it was decided to pass the ownership of the Duchy to his High Shield, the Commander of the Cloister’s Armies, Arc.

After the Eye’s pilgrimage to Darkholm, the High Shield saw fit to focus the resources of Duskforge on defense knowing that there will be those who view the Eye’s teachings as a threat to their power. Because of this the High Shield will use Duskforge to assure the defense and protection of the Kingdom.

Also recognizing the need for enlightenment of Mann to truly accept Luna’s teachings, Duskforge will also be a center trade and commerce. Luna’s words will be carried throughout the Kingdom, not only by followers of the Cloister, but also traders and merchants that will reach all corners of Elyria through Duskforge.

Duskforge and the Armies of the Cloister are still ever vigilant. Behind the defences, and behind the bustling trade hubs The High Shield continues to recruit and train The Armies of The Cloister. Legions of Templars lay in wait for the call to spill blood, either by the command of The Crown, or the holy decree of Luna. Their true deadliness, however, is in the shadows…


Being the ancestral home of The Cloister, Duskforge is steeped in countless tales of battles and bloodshed. Some say the landscape of Duskforge is stained in crimson during the setting sun from the amount of blood spilled at the cloisters hand.

It was not until Luna saw fit to make her will known to The Untainted Eye that Duskforge stopped bleeding.

There was a massive undertaking after that day. Grand Cloisters were commissioned to be built throughout Duskforge Luna’s shadow blanketed the land, covering the crimson topsoil in her twilight shadow.

The once vicious Xen Army were now roaming Elyria, searching for all relics and idols from their deity. It was almost as though Luna was guiding them to each location, for within a short time Duskforge became home to countless artifacts and relics from ages long forgotten.

After a time The Eye communed with Luna and it was decided that he could no longer squander her words to himself and his duchy. Her gift was granted for the whole of Elyra. The Eye chose, that day, with the council of Luna and Her Majesty, Rowena, Queen of Blackheart to pass the ownership of Duskforge to The Eye’s Right Hand, The High Shield of the Order of Robin, leader of the Armies of Xen, Arc.

After the announcement was made, The Eye set forth to build the foundations of The Cloister in lands of Darkholm, being graciously granted land by The Crown.

Arc, always thoughtful of dangers and the avarice of Mann saw that The Eyes teachings could be seen as a threat to power for some. He chose, at that point to use the resources of Duskforge to create a defensive backbone so as to better protect The Kingdom and The Eye as well.

Being a Mann of logic and common sense Arc also knew that the best way to the hearts and ears of the people of Elyra would be through their purse strings.

To that end he invested heavily in commerce and trade, so as to make Duskforge an economic center for the kingdom.
