[APAC] The Academy of Life
+7

The Academy of Life based in the Black Dire Lands of Aisling, it is overseen by the countess Anastasia Dramur. The Academy focuses on Agriculture and Animal Husbandry with the desire to protect the lives of animals that are at risk of becoming extinct we are a non profit based foundation working to assist farmers, breeders and herbalists.

The Academy of life seeks to protect life and find way to raise and breed animals of all kinds, with the help of its followers we wish spread thru the kingdom’s seeking animals and plants of rare nature and finding ways to tame and breed them realising some back into the wild to help maintain its existence on Elyria. We are in search of people who wish to live peacefully as well as people of trades seeking to breed or farm. We are also in search of people that seek adventure or cartographers to venture forth and seek animals and plants of rare breed out in the wild.

Stories of old mention the land we stand on was once beautiful beyond belief covered in ancient trees that glowed, flowers of such beauty we can’t imagine them, grass as far as the eye could see and animals we can only now imagine grazed on these lands but it was all destroyed. It is said that the fires of Daemon scorch these lands, thousands of species… Dead… A time we now know as the Burning. The land healed over time the trees grew, animals grazed and grass once again covers the land but the scars remain. Untold number of creatures died wiped from the face of the planet never to be seen again.

My great grandfather spoke of a time he stood on the peak of a mountain and looked out to the land below him. He claims that what he saw scared him, a force so powerful none could stop it. A force that will once again destroy the land before him… he spoke of Mann. From the mountain he could see the spread of mann, the destruction it left in its wake. He walked down from the mountain and started working on a idea. A organisation dedicated to protect as many species of animals as possible. The people thought him a fool.. but he persisted.. His efforts paid off near the end… He gathered like minded people and the organisation started to flourish.

My family has been looking over the Academy of Life ever since, it grew and with it so did the animals and people within. The destructive nature of mann will not destroy this world, the Academy and its followers will work to bring life to this world and save the creatures that live on it for that is our wishe..
