Back in the ancient days of Hy-Brasyl were the tuatha de Niara, or people
or Niara. Before they were known as the people of Niara however, they, along
with the men and women who formed Finach and Sarnath, were known as the people
who lived on the golden plains of Hy-Brasyl.
All was peaceful in the days of the great city, lined with golden towers
overshadowing the golden streets. Elders, wisest of all men, dwelled and passed
on with great pride and patience. As the days went on, all seemed well in
Hy-Brasyl, until the fateful day when the first
man lay there, lifeless, mouth twisted in horror, and a deep wound in his
chest. The first murder and unnatural death had taken place...
The elements were soon descovered by the people and the fact that they contained
a very unnatural power for destruction. With this, anyone could ruke Hy-Brasyl
for themselves. Greed took the minds of the people and they split Hy-Brasyl.
Soon after the first ill star they chaining of the elements was complete,
the factions of Hy-Brasyl took arms against their brothers and sisters alike
and thus began the Elemental Wars.
The wars were fought with brutality and malice. Greed had taken into their
minds and they shook the very foundation of Hy-Brasyl itself. Finally, after
the last sword was swung, the last element manipulated, Hy-Brasyl crumbled
and began to sink under the sea...
The fires burned out, and the last living peoples of Hy-Brasyl scattered,
creating camps and small civilizations. 3 of these civilizations formed communities
and began to prosper. They were known as Finach (Mileth), Sarnath (Gear Inbhir),
and Niara. Mileth soon began to worry bout their vulnarability and build up
a rater sufficient army of new fighters, skilled in the weapons of warfare.
Fearing the same fate of Hy-Brasyl, they did not dare play with the elements
and thus stuck to their new warriors. Sarnath did not build an army, and decided
to instead look into knowledge as being the greatest power of all and they
studied the elements (their studies would eventually lead to the find and
unleashing of the dark element). Niara was farthest away from the other camps
and secluded. Niara, like Finach, built an army. But they knew ther elements
were the ultimate power and with further study, could be unleashed to help
us understand more and for protection...
Danaan 1703, the experiments and toying of the elements by the people of
Sarnath have discovered the dark element and the communtiy was shortly after
destroyed by an unknown force. Soon after (Danaan 1705) it is discovered the
force is strange demonic forces and pure evil mixed into the beings known
as the Dubhaimid. These creatures are unlike anything in Temuair. They are
smart, they ravage with no remorse, no weaknesses, no mercy. Finach is under
seige from this dark force and Niara needs to act quickly to comat this force.
The Knights de Niara are formed, under the leadership if Maldrich, the Hammer
and his 4 lieutenants, they marchtowards Finach to offer support. Danaan 1758,
Finach is at war with the Dubhaimid and it is a stalemate, even with the knights.
Niara assembles their greatest warriors and wizards, lead by Demuriel, the
conjuror and Andrilarch, the Vile Blade, the Crimson Guard was formed and
ready for battle.
The wars with the Dubhaimid were long and painful. With the power of the
Crimson Guard, the stalemate was broken and the Dubhaimid fled to unknown
regions. It seemed all the chaos had lost lives, but no real damage. That
was not the case. The chaos had caused a sleeping being to awaken. Chadul,
god of chaos and all that is evil, awoke. With his arrival, Grinneal was weakend
and destroyed. Under his guidance, the Dubhaimid stops their retreat and regrouped
for a second mass attack. With Chadul, the power seemed unstopable. When the
Dubhaimid came screaming across the hills, the Crimson Guard, Knights de Niara
and the warriors of Finach were bot ready. Back at the Niarian camp, a brutal
battle was fought, one that even Niara had a hard time holding back. There
were more Dubhaimid to come and Niara was weakened by the first assault. Quickly,
seeking guidance, the people of Niara and Finach once again returned to Danaan
for help. and she answered. Soon after the first battle with Chadul, the last
one would be fought. The Dubhaimid came in full force and the Niarian forces
charged in under the guidance of Danaan. The warriors of Finach, also under
her guidance, ran in, ready to protect what was theirs. The battle ravaged
all of Temuair and shook the very foundation on which it stood on. When it
was all over, Niara was lost, crumbled under the immence battle, but the Dubhaimid
lay dead, Chadul traped in the underworld, powerles and the dark element contained,
As the years passed on all seemed calm. The Dubhaimid had been subdued and
the dark element was left alone. Mortals wisely stayed away from Chadul and
the Dubhaimid born god, Sgrios. Eventually, like the past, greed forced us
to the brink of destruction. Tenes, along with his allies, rose to power to
form the Leagu of Darkness. Many years later, he formed the Pact of Anaman,
a pact that allowed the League to live a thousand years and allowed mortals
to escape Chadul's realm. But this gave Chadul a direct link to the world
above, and his grip upon the world was once again a strong one. Soon Temuair
was divided by the League and thus began the Dark Ages...
Tenes becamse powerful and had his allies to back him up, even the power
of Finach did not dare face him. One man arose, and challenged Tenes, this
was Ainmeal who was said to be blessed by the Fae and by Danaan herself. He
however needed an army to battle Tenes. An ancient civilization, long lost
came out of their hiding and their cover, not even Tenes expected them to
be alive for all this time. The people of Niara arose, Crimson Guard, Knighs
de Niara still intact and still thriving in secrecy. They rose to back up
Ainmeal and fought Tenes like the Dubhaimid before him. The wars were great,
and although outnumbered, Niara and Ainmeal were often victorious because
of outstanding tacticts and unmatched power. Finally, when Suomi betrayed
Tenes, Ainmeal won his victory and re-enforced Loures as his capital. Niara
also stayed in Loures and kept it safe in these times. We watched the rise
and fall of emperors, and the unknown rebellion of Undine. When the 4th emperor
arose, the Niarians left Loures and returnes to their lost city to rebuild,
but they would not get this done before it would be destroyed once again...
Niara was once again founded and it thrived like its neighbors Finach. Unknowingly
to everyone, the Dubhaimid over the years and eons had grown, into an immence
power. The Anaman Pact had gained Chadul powers and strength to conduct a
war even from his domain. With the assitance from the Dubhaimid god Deoch,
he threw the Dubhaimid into an angered frenzy and sent them after their only
challenge, Niara. The Crimson Guard, the Knights and the Peace Keepers took
arms, warned by their Infiltrators, Niara was ready for this attack. Their
merchants made last second trades and resupplied the fortress for the battle.
Finach and Loures were informed and took up arms as well. Suomi and Undine
with what they had left mustered their armies for this war, and a war it was.
When the armies arrived to Niara, a battle was raging. One section of the
Dubhaimid army was destroying Niara, even with the Niarian armies. Both sides
fought with unworldly savagery and as soon as the other armies of Temuair
arrived, the remaining Dubhaimid were sent upon them, it was another classic
Chadul against Danaan. But this was not a short war, the united factions of
Temuair and the Dubhaimid fought, and fought for a hundred years until the
final turning point...
Bloodshed was the most common sight in Temuair during these days. The Dubhaimid
were weakened when Deoch fell in love with Danaan, and forsake his servitude
to Chadul and assisted Danaan. The dark element was out of control and was
the backbone of the Dubhaimid. When the wars peaked, a new elements was discovered.
The 6th element, light. This new force was more than CHadul and the Dubhaimid
could bear. It forced the creatures and their leaders back, back into oblivion
and they have not been seen outside Dubhaimid castle since (other than the
time during the 8th anniversary of Danaan's sacrifice). Niaria once again
without a homeland, dissapeared and seemed they died a long time ago. This
is not the case, we are the Lords de Niara, we have been long in hiding, once
again to build our forces, once again to strengthen our soldiers, once again
to combat darkness, whereever it may fall...
