While the size of the presently-discovered Aloria is comparable to real-world Europe, the distinct landscapes, climates, cultures, and races that cover the landscape are indicative of the world's dramatic diversity and the fantastic sights one would encounter when traveling. The snowy peaks of [[Ellador]] contrast the endless sands of [[Farah'deen]], and the [[Yang-Tzu Islands]] rival the [[Regalian Archipelago]] in size and beauty. Take a moment to read up on the incredible world of Aloria, and the fantastic lands within.
[[Aloria’s]] world is vast and varied. The snowy peaks of [[Ellador]] contrast the endless sands of [[Farah'deen]], all surrounded by the [[Oceans]] of the world. Accompanying these distinctive climates and geographical features are a wide variety of [[Cultures]] and [[Races]] that cover the landscape, which emphasize the world's dramatic diversity and the fantastic sights one would encounter when traveling.

Possessing bountiful natural resources, such as vast jungles and fertile land, Aloria's various factions have wasted no time in attempting to divide the continent up between themselves, from Ailor colonies like Ithania sprouting up to create their own widespread image and culture, to the recent Varran efforts to establish themselves as their own power, even as far as Orcs competing with wildlife and Avanthar alike for the glory of their kind.

From this, came the [[Kathar]], though the northern regions recoiled and sealed themselves off from everyone. After the [[Cataclysm]], the [[Dread Empire]] rose in the region and now battles with the forces of the mainland and that of the [[Suvial]] [[Altalar]].

Then, over generations, escaped slaves, intrepid explorers and expansions left Ceardia and helped to further spread the Ailor population across the world. Unfortunately, those that remained on [[Old Ceardia]] were savage and cruel, resulting in a time of Ceardian Warlords ruling and fighting amongst themselves. This came to an end with time, but it wasn’t long before the Ceardian people were dealt a new cruel hand by fate. The [[Destruction of Ceardia]], caused by unknown magical forces, resulted in a huge evacuations, with the wild lands now left open for future settlers to return.

Aloria’s world is vast and varied. The snowy peaks of Ellador contrast the endless sands of Farah'deen, all surrounded by the Oceans of the world. Accompanying these distinctive climates and geographical features are a wide variety of Cultures and Races that cover the landscape, which emphasize the world's dramatic diversity and the fantastic sights one would encounter when traveling. Take a moment to read up on the incredible world of Aloria, and the fantastic lands within.

A map of the continents of known Aloria
