Welcome to the world of Cordilon.
Before the Great Reckoning, three kingdoms stood in an everlasting war. The sorcerers of Magmera fought alongside the battle-hardened warriors of the nation of Pereblia to crush the military and territorial might of Axcenas. After hundreds of years of stagnation in the war, the Magmeran archmagi discovered the secret to interdimensional portals, creating a fast travel network throughout Magmera and Pereblia and their new territories that were continuously annexed from Axcenas.
However, the traditional methods of war became too slow for Magmera. The archmagi created a portal that opened up an unstable link to an Axcenan town. The link collapsed upon itself, bringing the town and a significant chunk of nearby land with it. When reports of the new weapon's success came in, more superweapons were built and Axcenas slowly began disappearing altogether.
In shock, Pereblia tried to convince Magmera to stop using the superweapons, but this only angered those controlling the world's most deadly force. Pereblia's capital city, Verdegrande, disappeared overnight, leaving only indestructible black chunks behind in place of minerals and gravel.
With Axcenas destroyed and Pereblia surrendering, Magmera's archmagi were now the rulers of Cordilon. Their title as such was short-lived, as soon, the world began to rearrange itself in a cataclysm that darkened the sky and killed millions. Many fled the cities in search of shelter, finding it in caves. Out of a possible ten million people living in the world before the Great Reckoning, as it came to be known, only a few thousand survived.
Five years have passed since the Great Reckoning subsided, leaving only a trace of the former world behind. People are separated by immense distances and have grouped into small towns of no more than a few hundred inhabitants. The largest (and only) known town is Nyskal, which is presumed to be in the no-man's-land between Axcenas and Magmera. People live their daily lives in this reformed world, trying to bring life back to the way it was before the Reckoning. You are one of them.
So who runs the world of Cordilon?
While the world was originally written up by the admin team, later with the help of the Wizards (not an RP group), it is now shaped by the players who take part in Cordilon through RP and construction.
So the admins aren't RP enforcers?
Not really. The admin team does have the power to veto an RP or construction idea, though it is rarely used. However, this is only used so far as to keep the server a fun and friendly place. Remember, the admins are players too! We take part in the world of Cordilon as well, shaping it as part of the community.
