Mistfall is a large Kingdom to the South of the New Capitol. Most of the land is covered in hills, lakes, and the expansive forests that provide Mistfall with it's large lumber export. To the South of Ironguard lies the Sea of Sorrows. Bordering the Sea of Sorrows is the Night Swamp, where all sorts of arcane witchery takes place.
The Founding of Mistfall Edit
Mistfall was founded in the Second Era by Ulysses Greenhill of Clan Greenhill. After sailing the Sea of Sorrows, Clan Greenhill settled at the nearest sustainable area, which developed into the capitol of Mistfall, Irongarde, now known as Ironguard. Ulysses' men set to building a great hall, which he named Korvanjuund.
From the North, a nomadic tribe of mountain dwellers stumbled across Irongarde on their travels. Ulysses met the strangers with steel rather than peaceful words. A great battle ensued, ultimately resulting in Ulysses' death. Many say that Ulysses was drunk during the battle, as "fighting drunk dulled the pain". From then on, Korvanjuund was known in whispers as the Hall of Drunks.
Clan Greenhill elected their new leader, a man known as Wolfgang Greenhill. Wolfgang was a cruel, yet effective leader. The second conflict of Mistfall was between a mysterious Clan from the West known as Godiva. The conflict resulted in a stalemate, with both Clans electing truce over more bloodshed.
The Creation of Great Lake and the Monarchy Edit
In the Third Era, the year 3,231 ANB (After the Nether Birth), A meeting between Clan Greenhill, House Godiva, the Mountain Tribes, and plenty of other nations, took place in the middle of a Great Lake on an island. There it was discussed that each Clan contribute manpower and resources to constructing a great capitol for all the lands. The idea was agreed upon, and over the next century, the capitol called Great Lake was constructed.
Now that there was a seat for a monarch, yet no monarch, talk of appointing the first monarch of the Realm began. In candidacy was Stonefist Greenhill of Mistfall, Lord Chester Godiva of Breaugund, and Arthur Wolfsbane of the Forgotten Kingdom. Arthur Wolfsbane won overall, after Stonefist was poisoned by an unknown assassin, and Chester took ill, supposedly of the same poison. Arthur was crowned King, and the Wolfsbane family ruled on into the late Third Era.
House Musgrove's Ascent Edit
After Stonefist Greenhill's death, Clan Greenhill had a hard time keeping its grasp on Ironguard. It was at this time that a young noble by the name of Cedric Musgrove rose up with a host of a thousand men, all farmers, workers, and disgruntled citizens. Lord Cedric stormed the gates of Ironguard and defeated the Greenhill forces. This event was marked in history as the Musgrove Rebellion. Lord Cedric took his place as Lord of Mistfall, beginning the rule of the Musgrove family.
Hard times fell on House Musgrove and Ironguard during the famine of 3,677. With food scarce and the smallfolk dying like flies, Lord Asher Musgrove opened the noble stores to feed his people. This act of kindness compelled a Witch from the Night Swamp to cast a spell on the living plants of Mistfall. This particular Witch died, exhausting herself and her magic to feed the masses. At her death, she transformed into a great tree, out of place in the murky swamp. Lord Asher also perished during this crisis, devoting all the food from his table to his people.
The year 3,714 brought House Musgrove to the front of Realm politics. Lord Harkon Musgrove ascended the Throne of the Realm after the death of Amadeus Wolfsbane. This move was a calculated one from the Lords of Breaugund, Mistfall, and the Mountain Tribes. Amadeus Wolfsbane was an inbred child, and his teen years brought about cruelty and a lack of prosperity. The combined Mountain, Mistfall, and Breaugund forces were enough to decimate the Wolfsbane soldiers and allowed for Lord Harkon to ascend the throne. House Musgrove gave over the Throne in the year 3,986 to House Godiva in exchange for a hefty amount of land to be added to Mistfall.
Lord Gregor and the Nether War Edit
Mistfall experienced its most prosperous, and it's most darkest time under Lord Gregor Musgrove. Gregor was loved by many, including the other ruling kingdoms. He was always fair and just, as well as benevolent and kind. Gregor led House Musgrove during the Golden Age, a time of immense wealth and prosperity. The Golden Age was brought to a halt when the Wizards of the Forgotten Kingdom opened a portal to the Nether, the hellish afterlife of the Realm. The forces of the Nether spread throughout the mortal plane, attempting to join the mortal world with the land of the dead. Every Kingdom joined forces to fight back the forces of the Nether and its king, the Wither King. The lands of the mortals were destroyed, and the Realm's population reduced to less than 9 million.
Lord Gregor took Ill during the fighting, catching the disease known as "The Wither". In his place to oversee the reconstruction of Ironguard and the rest of Mistfall is his firstborn son, Ryon. Ryon thus far has proved to be an effective leader.
