Long before Adeluna was an empire or even the land was known as Adeluna there was the Edelweiss Kingdom. A small kingdom up in the mountains where the Ancense Ruins now lie. While the ruins do not belong to Edelweiss themselves the location was the exact spot where Edelweiss was built. The kingdom while small had a mighty reputation for its mines. It was a wealthy little nation that brought people from all over Revaliir seeking to strike it rich and live in luxury.
The gods of old were bitter and cruel even to those that served them faithfully. The kingdom of Edelweiss served the mighty god Gorrick. Gorrick was the Lord of the Forge and Dragon King. Crafts and fire were his specialties and while he began his life as a modest god… He is perhaps the worst ones who corrupted from the power the Voice provided in Canelux history.
It is said that he requested the King of Edelweiss to give his only daughter to him as a present. She would be his and serve him for the rest of her life through any hardship he would make her endure. He told the king this, not out of randomness, but out of rivalry. Gorrick’s younger brother fancied the fair princess and Godhood had made Gorrick spoiled. Wanting to rob his brother of everything and anything the God threatened Edelweiss and its people.
His threat was this: “Give me the girl or I shall seal the mines and ruin whatever prosperity you all have. You will lose not only your wealth but your reputations. No other kingdom in all of Revaliir will want you or yours. I will hurl hellfire down on you and ruin your beloved kingdom… There will be no place for you to call home.”
However, the king of Edelweiss was of a good heart and would not forfeit his daughter over to the deity. He realized that the god they served was a monster and he declared that Edelweiss would give no more offerings in his name and that they no longer needed him. A brave thing… However, a stupid thing.
Gorrick made good on his word and hurled hellfire down on Edelweiss. Rock began to grow and block off all and any passages underground where the mines were, sealing the treasures within for what would have been an eternity. It was this heartless action that made the Voice strip Gorrick of his powers and the once mighty god was thrown from the heavens down to the survivors of Edelweiss.
He was met with his brother and his new wife, the princess that Gorrick had wanted for himself. They had been married in secret before the king had thrown out his declaration and moved to a safe place. The princess’s name was Adeline Luna Edelweiss. She would be honored by her husband as he named this new kingdom: Adeluna.
This story has been passed down by residents of Adeluna since the day the empire was created. It became a legend as most historical events do. However, when the Voice shook all of Revaliir during the fight with the Insect warriors from Onnen something happened that would make history come alive once more… At least in a distant memory.
As the lands shook the lands where Ancense Ruins now sit were sundered far below the surface. Divine walls that held for many millennia crumbled to dust. Mystic energy pooled up from the sorrow caused by the god Gorrick caused the old mine lanterns to come alive with ghostly light… and the dead came to life, victims that were buried when the mines were forcibly sealed.
The Queen of Adeluna, Qendresa I, has declared that the mines of her forefathers have been reopened. Adventurers could now make their ways into the ancient caverns of Edelweiss’s past and Adeluna’s origin mother.
