The Northern Realm
The Northern Realm came into existence after the Altori Rebellion (July 2017) and was given its official name in September 2017. The realm is ruled by King Muzwall Frostwither as of August 2017, advised by Lord Gerrey Kodi, and Lord Davos Crowport.

Wyvernsdale (realm capital)
In the early days of Allura, the first lords of Altor slew a ferocious frost wyvern in the North. Many brave knights and lords were lost in the battle, but after the beast was killed, they cut out its icy heart. The heart was taken to the highest point in present day Wyvernsdale and chained to a mountain top, and to this day still emits a frosty aura that keeps the surrounding lands frozen and snowed over. The people of Wyvernsdale considered the incredible power of the frost dragon to be sacred, and worship dragons to this day.
This particular religion prides itself in the worship of Claire, the Creator Goddess. While the people of Wyvernsdale dislike Claireism, it inevitably made its way into the Northern Realm after the exodus of the banished Altori lords.
The Threeheaded God is a divinity worshiped by certain cults across multiple alluran nations. Although this religion is now forced into hiding, there once was a time when it was indeed rather common in certain parts of the world. The followers are thought to be the constructors of certain structures, which can be found in, amongst others, modern day Tauros. https://forum.realmofallura.com/t/rp-religion-the-three-headed-god/645
Long ago in the beginnings of the Realm of Allura, a tribe of stout-hearted humans banded together and set out on a journey to find a land they could call home. Traveling West, they discovered a vast ocean and proceeded to map out every island, inlet, and shore they could find. They called themselves the Altori (“sea farers” in their tongue)
After many years of sailing as nomads, they found no land that suited them, and the shores were already beginning to be settled by other people. So, they set out on foot and traveled North, further north than anyone in their time had. Their travels were full of danger and excitement and finally came to a halt when they encountered a massive Dragon, a Wyvern that breathed bitter frost and snow. He flew over them freezing many people in their tracks, and glided off into the mountains. Caught by surprise, many Altori were slain, but a few brave warriors among them took up arms and trekked into the blizzardy mountains. It was long and toilsome hunt, but in the end the Dragon was tracked down and slain.
After burying his carcass where they destroyed him, the land remained wintry, despite the summery beaches and forests that lay around it. All that remained of the dragon was its icy skeleton. Its remains decomposed into valuable ores and minerals, beginning the bustling mining community known as Dragonspine. The heroes who had killed the Dragon were hailed as lords and became leaders of their own clans, since the Altori people had become great in number. Andwall Froswither, the man who personally gutted the wyvern, claimed the snowy mountainous region for his own, calling it Wyvernsdale, in memory of the battle that they fought.
Beginning of an Empire
The three other lords settled North and east of Wyvernsdale. One of these Lords rose above the rest, calling together a council. It was at this council that the lords elected him as their king, for his quick action, and display of leadership in the past. His name was Inceptus Agetos. He organized the four provinces Wyvernsdale, to form the Altori Empire. His own province was called Willowsong.
The Altori lived in peace and harmony for many years, but then an uneasiness began to loom over the empire. Inceptus had decided that his brother Felkros, should rule along side him. He called the new government a "diarchy". In this time, no one ever met with Inceptus or his brother. And all communication with the "kings" was cut off. This strange silence of the diarchs sparked the curiosity of a certain knight, Sir Georgar, who had been in Inceptus's service as an advisor.
He tried visiting the king often, but was always turned away as the king was "indisposed"
Finally, he managed to sneak into Inceptus's private study. There he found the kings dark secret. Inceptus at some point in his life had fallen to the corrupt practice of Wither Worship
Shocked, Sir Georgar bundled up some papers as evidence for what he had discovered, only to be interrupted by the sudden entrance of Inceptus himself.
The king’s appearance had changed drastically…for the worse. His skin had turned a sickly shade of grey and he had become extremely skinny. But in his eyes, there burned a demonic flame. He gave the knight a grim smile and charged straight for him with his sword. Sir Georgar barely had time to escape through the window, and fled to Wyvernsdale to take shelter with Muzwall Frostwither, son of Andwall.
After learning of the horrific truth about Inceptus. Muzwall decided the time had come to confront him publicly. He made haste to Willowsong and demanded an audience with Inceptus, forcing his way into the throne room
This time, the king was ready, and had worn clothes that covered his skin completely. However, he couldn't hide his rage. When Muzwall accused him of wither worship, and threatening the safety of the Altori, Inceptus flew into a rage, accusing his lord of treachery and slander. All I can say is, things didn't end well and the king went mad after that day.
Inceptus banished all his lords, threatening to burn and raze their homes to the ground. The two remaining lords Gerrey Kodi and Davos Crowport took refuge with Muzwall. They took council together, still recovering from shock. After much preparation, they combined their armies and marched for Willowsong. Upon their arrival, the town was deathly silent. Something had gone horribly wrong. Inceptus’s dabbling in Wither magic had granted him great power at the cost of his good looks…granting him the power to control the dead. Starting with the Willowsong cemetery, he had raised an army, killing all his people and enlisting them as well. The dead rushed at the newcomers, lusting for living flesh. However, the lords overcame them with ease and broke into the throne room, only to discover that Inceptus and his brother had fled.
The Northern Realm
Willowsong essentially was no more, and the lords turned back to Wyvernsdale, never to return to that accursed place. After a final council together, they declared Muzwall as their new King. Muzwall granted Lord Kodi the land to the north of Wyvernsdale, called Dragonspine; and to Lord Crowport he gave the beautiful shoreline to the South, which the lord lovingly called Rosewater after the pink cherry trees that flourished in that area. After a while of still being simply Altori rebels, they declared their sovereignty with a simple name: The Northern Realm.
