Hail the King
This is the timeline of our historical campaign. Every year of the campaign has been referenced below, though player-altered events began in 485 AD.
The Time of the Romans
The Romans displaced the Britons, and ruled over the Cymri. We had government before them, but they brought the written word. They brought stonework. They brought armies. We suffered great atrocities are their hands, but they kept the savages of the North at bay.
The Time of Constantin’s reign
When the Roman’s told Britain to look to its own defenses against the Picts in 410 AD they elected Constantin to lead them. His reign was one of little peace, but law and order were maintained until his death in 440 AD.

The Time of Constans’ reign
Betrayal by Silchestrians left the King dead, and while his son Constans was guaranteed to rule the political fight over his regency kept the realm from being organized. It was a time of great Pictish invasion.
The Time of Vortigern’s reign
As regent, he was a natural choice to succeed his dead nephew and successfully pushed the Picts back beyond Hadrien’s wall but at the price of inviting Saxon mercenaries. To make peace, Vortigern married a chieftain’s daughter. Vortigern ruled from 443 AD when he was named King until his death in 467 AD, at the hands of Ambrosius and Uther.
The Golden Years of Ambrosius’ reign
Claiming Vortigern as false-king and kinslayer, Ambrosius and his brother invaded from Brittany with a war host. Many bent the knee, Vortigern was vanquished, and the realm endured peace as Ambrosius fought back the Saxons to the borders of his realm. He ruled from 468 AD when he was crowned King until 480 AD when his wounds were mistreated by a false doctor.
The Time of Uther’s reign
Uther was never meant to be a King, and he lacked the honor of his word. For his jealousy, there was civil war in the realm that Ambrosius had forged to peace. Uther did push the Saxons back, but the final year of his reign is marked by a major defeat. His reign lasted from 481 AD until his death by poison in 495 AD.
The Time of Anarchy
Without a King the realm fought itself and many men attempted to claim the throne of all Britain. Saxon lords called themselves Brytenwalda while Welsh kings demanded that all must kneel. Ambrosius distant cousins in Brittany launched another invasion, but it was stopped in Jagent.
The Time of Arthur
A young king with much hope, the realm rests all of its future on his dreams
