The Royal Continent
The Royal Continent is the main landmass in the world of Albion. There are six cities on the Royal Continent, with the five faction cities arranged in a circle around Caerleon, the central hub. Its name comes from the claim upon the land made by the king, who resides in Caerleon.
Each faction city governs a different region of the continent, and is defined by the biome it's located in. These cities are in ongoing conflict with one another and with the royal government in Caerleon, despite relying on one another for the different resources available throughout the continent. Each faction city has developed their own specialties and techniques, and as result offers bonuses to refining one resource type, and crafting certain equipment types, detailed in the table below. However, each city has one Faction that can be used to get Faction Points which you may exchange for special items.
|City||Region||Refinement Bonus||Crafting Bonuses|
|Martlock||Highland||Hide||Axe, Quarterstaff, Frost Staff, Plate Shoes, Offhands|
|Bridgewatch||Steppe||Rock||Crossbow, Dagger, Cursed Staff, Plate Armor, Cloth Shoes|
|Lymhurst||Forest||Fiber||Sword, Bow, Arcane Staff, Leather Headgear, Leather Shoes|
|Fort Sterling||Mountain||Wood||Hammer, Spear, Holy Staff, Cloth Armor, Plate Headgear|
|Thetford||Swamp||Ore||Mace, Nature Staff, Fire Staff, Leather Armor, Cloth Headgear|
Caerleon, located in the center of the continent, can be considered the capital city of Albion, with roads that connect to all five other cities.
It once featured the realm gate--a great portal that allowed travel to and from the various regions of the Outlands. It was destroyed in a cataclysmic event that marked the end of the Avalonian Invasion.
Caerleon has a city-specific crafting bonus of 15% to gathering tools, demolition hammers, food, and potions.
