Lord British's Regalia

The once noble lands of Britannia are no more... for in their place lies a ruined land... twisted by greed and hatred... lacking the Virtues that once held the lands together...

The foul Guardian, seeking revenge upon Lord British and the Avatar, has entered our fair realm and twisted it into a mockery of what was... Eight black pillars dot the countryside, risen from the shattered remains of the Shrines of Virtue, covering the land in darkness. The Great Castles of the Principles lie in ruins, and Lord British rules from a shattered throne within Castle British... some say a puppet to the Guardian's whims...

In centuries past, a Hero has risen to challenge the evils in the lands, an Avatar called forth to save us and heal the wrongs... but there has been no sign of our savior for far too long. As the Virtues have turned into tyrannical laws, the noble Companions of the Avatar have become outlaws to the Guardian's rule, and in hiding, await the Avatar's return...

In ancient days past, scholars watched the night sky for signs of what was to come. Strangely, portents have appeared in the heavens, speaking of a Hero's return, the redemption of the lands, and a destroyer's fall... Only time shall tell...
