Indeed, the area functions as a pivotal continental region in the middle of everything, and is well-connected with the rest of the world by diplomacy, politics, war, and trade. Corontium is home to the Regalian Empire, arguable the most powerful in Aloria, and the people of the Regalian Archipelago owe their mastery of the world in part to the location they reside in.

|caption = A constant mixing-pot of strife and chaos.
|text = Home to most [[Nelfin]] Races, Daen was the birthplace of the once-sprawling [[Allorn Empire]]. 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. Ailor lands like [[Ithania]] exist and create their own widespread image and culture, the [[Asha]] make efforts to establish themselves as their own power and the powerful [[Eronidas]] competing with both wildlife and [[Avanthar]] alike for the glory of their kind. A far cry from its ancient, united past, the Daen of the modern age is Aloria's stewing pot, mixing many Races and [[Cultures]] into one ancient land.

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. Ailor lands like Ithania exist and create their own widespread image and culture, the Varran make efforts to establish themselves as their own power and the savage Orcs competing with wildlife and Avanthar alike for the glory of their kind.

|text = The Far West was an expansion region off of Daen for the ancient Allorn Empire, but it was soon invested with the [[Faith of the Dark Ancients]] and other dark powers. 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]].

|intro = Essalonia is a rural continent primarily known for its the colonial haven of the New Ceardian Colonies. Ailor cover much of its surface, though to the arid south live Songaskians and Qadir. In Regalian-aligned territory, however, vast sprawling fields of cleared forest and longstanding logging operations help to feed the Regalian economy.

The Regalian invasion of 305 AC has left the traces of civilization on its borders war-ridden and devastated as entire towns have been put to sword.

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.

Currently, Ceardia itself is in the process of being reconquered but it is likely to take quite some time given the small taskforce involved and general future-facing attitudes of many.

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
