The Known Kingdoms of Lyonesse
 
 
Kingdom of Avalon
For almost a thousand years, no kingdom has stood higher than mighty Avalon. From humble beginnings, the Kingdom of Avalon rose to become the strongest force upon the face of Lyonesse maintaining relative peace throughout the land. An unbroken line of hereditary rulers has sat upon the throne of Avalon since the time of Edward the First Hand of God. Now, however, the arrival of the Prophets carrying their message has thrust not only Avalon, but also the entire continent, into a war of domination, for the warlord who can claim the title, the Hand of God, shall rule the world.

Bushido Clan
The history of the Bushido Clans is a long and bloody tale, but it is also a tale of triumph over adversity. The Bushido Clans have evolved from a collection of warring families, each vying for dominance over one another, to a mighty kingdom that has flourished under the stewardship of imperial succession. For almost a thousand years, the Emperor of the Bushido has sworn allegiance to the Hands of God, but now that the Prophets have brought their message that there may be a new Hand of God chosen from another kingdom, Emperor Ashikaga has decided that he shall be that one chosen.

Simian Empire
The Simian Empire is a nation unlike any other in existence, inhabited by highly intelligent primates. Their realm extends nearly the entire length of the Polityros Mountains, with majestic cities built high along the cliffs. They were once a province under the rule of the Hand of God, but when the kingdoms broke away from Avalon, they were among the first to leave, yet they still maintain a tenuous truce with Avalon. Caesar Octavian proudly took control over the Senate, swaying them over with his logic and charisma. Now the Simian Empire arms its large Gorla warriors for a great battle to come, for Caesar Octavian has laid claim to the throne of the New Hand of God and will allow none to get in his way.

Panthera Tribe
The Panthera is actually a savage kingdom consisting of hundreds of clans and tribes. Feline-featured humanoids rule these dense jungles and steaming forests. Long ago, these tribes were unified by the great Leao, Zashaka, against the crusade of a power-hugnry Hand of God, King Mathew Killian the Second, the father of Francis the Humble. The armies of Avalon failed to conquer the wild kingdom, or the clans of fierce feline warriors. Now, a new clan chieftain has risen in power, Rashaka of the River Claws tribe, to claim the title of Leao of the Panthera tribes. He would unite the clans and tribes once again, this time to avenge themselves for the insult levied upon them by Avalon, and to claim the title as the Hand of God.

The Hive
The Hive is a monstrous civilization of insectoid monsters, united into a collective mind and guided by the dictates of their terrible queen. Nestled around Hell's Furnace, a volcano surrounded by the Polityros and Huikido Mountains, the Hive had remained reclusive and ignorant of the world around them until one of the Vespidian Maidens gained an awareness of the outside world. Instantly, she took control of all the Vespidian Hives, creating a single Hive underneath her-the Lotix Queen. Now, the queen mother sends her daughters out into the world with hordes of warriors to conquer all.

Freak Show
Once an island renowned for its beauty and for its peaceful people, Belaria has undergone a drastic, terrifying change. For unknown to the rest of the world, even to the great kingdom of Avalon that now lays in turmoil, a vicious creature has arisen from the darkness and conquered the once jovial land of Belaria. This creature is known only as Nevermore, who truly exemplifies the terror of his name. When the opportunity arose, with the fall of Avalon and the absence of one, true 'Hand of God,' Nevermore seized control of Belaria, proving himself more powerful a wizard than any of the Ringmasters. With the ability to mutate flesh and warp the minds of the weak, Nevermore encountered little resistance as he manipulated the people of Belarai into trusting that he was the true 'New Hand of God.' Now, Nevermore has his own army; his own Freak Show.

The Wildlings
The Wildlings are an ancient and noble race, though they have long been considered little more than savages in the legends of the humans. Calling themselves the Centors, they were a nation of scholars and warriors, who had slowly and inexorably spread their empire to the south, expanding their territory clear to the Selaur Sea. Half-men, half-horse, the Wildlings are divided into three peoples: the Medjai, who form the great bulk of the Wildling Nation; the Mamluk, the largest and strongest of the Wildlings; and the Pharoan, or noble-blooded, the spiritual and secular leaders of the Wildlings, who were believed to have been completely destroyed hundreds of years ago. Now, the Pharoan have returned, driven by a thirst to avenge themselves upon the nations that attempted to destroy them, and that did destroy their culture, almost a thousand years ago.

Outkast
The OutKast are a race of saurians, creatures that combine aspects of humanoids and dinosaurs. They are the remnants of a culture that once ruled the entire world, but lost much in the terrible cataclysms that they had caused in their arrogance. The Kingdom of Avalon once had designs on subjugating the OutKast, but their pure savagery made Avalon think twice. With nothing to gain, Avalon simply "annexed" the OutKast as vassals of Avalon, but did so on paper only. Word of the Prophet's "New Hand of God" reached Karix, though, and it stirred ancient memories of when the OutKast ruled the known world. Karix believes that this is the time for the OutKast to be reborn as the Chosen of Lyonesse.

Dominion
The Dominion are a race of which very little is know. They come from land to the west of the Hive nation, and the Hive are not know for sharing information.. It is believed that they dwell mostly underground. It is also believed that there genetics contain strong lizard or reptilian origins, from there appearance this seems very likely. It is noted that an increase of forays into other kingdoms coincides with the news that a new Hand will be chosen, but there has been no official proclamation to support this view.
