From Alathra Wiki

Olgard is a world found outside Alathra. It is the home realm and birthplace of Isenhiem and where Hellsna came from. The dimension is impossible to enter without divine permission.

The Mythology

Olgard hosts a wide range of stories and myths. From the creation of the universe to the end of reality.

Position in the universe

while the people of Olgard don't think themselves as the centre of the universe, they do see themselves as the front line against the tyrants and other evils.

Mortality and self

The people of Olgard are said to live for 200-300 years. Despite looking human they class themselves as a separate sub species. Unlike humans, "Olgardians" are more attuned to the Other and Arcane powers. They also can't get cold.

Royalty and Elders are different to the normal people of Olgard. Those of royal blood can live upto 500 years and can perform stronger types of magic than what others can. Elders on the other hand can live upto 700 years+ with the oldest of the elders being of unknown age. They are the most attuned to the worlds of magic and have even been rumored to change reality.The people of Olgard view life simply, they are born, they live the best they can and then they die. It is rare for an Olgardian to fear death as they welcome it due to their long life. Oddly enough they don't believe in the afterlife.

In addition to this, Olgardians can't be resurrected with normal means and magic that controls death, such as necromancy, can not affect them.


While nothing can pass the barrier the only acceptance is the gods and the Dragons. While Dragons are uncommon, they are very welcome to Olgard. When one arrives to the realm a mass celebration is held for them in their honor. The celebration lasts as long as the dragon and they are given gifts of gold and gems. Because of this, Olgard was becoming a frequent stopping place for Dragons and the overall dragon population seemed happier.

And at the end of it all, only a god shaped hole will stand as everything crumbles down. He is the end, the dawn of the awakening, null and void. He is the void and now he speaks.


The realm of Olgard contains a large selection of stories, legends and myths. Some outline the birth of gods and the creation of the universe, while others tell of stories from other worlds. Most notable of all the stories is how the universe will end, The pink dawn.

- As the moons settle behind close clouds, stars fall asleep in gentle calm. The awakening of the hounds will be the sign of the last sunrise, of when night sky's turn green and bright lights become pink. And as the guise of reality falls, and nature pleads "Oh mercy, oh mercy" He will stand before all. The strings and twine shall be unwoven, and he will ignore the screams and cries of mortal men. A god shaped hole in our world breaks the coil. Only then will the havens come crashing down to the worlds below and the rubble remain. Thus, through destruction will Nelsifar come into light.

Stories also tell of a mirror world to Olgard call Rulfisethiem. Unlike the benevolent and beautiful world of Olgard, Rulfisethiem is a hell scape full of confusion and torture. The realm is described as;

- Where the worlds of dreams and existence meet. A place where doors lead to the wrong room and stairs lead to the wrong floor. A place where up is left and down is forward till the point where the ceiling is on your right. A place full of the primal constructs of society; torture, pain and suffering.

The realm of Rulfisethiem is said to be a prison for those who broke the laws of nature and those who had sinned. This is vague in its description but nothing of the realm makes sense.

The realm itself is inhabited by creatures often call "Lurkers" or "Minions". The power and ability they possess is unknown as not much else is known from the realm apart from crazed accounts of mad men. However it is said that the realm has a warden known as the "Lady of shadows", often thought to be Hellsna but is yet to be confirmed.

The First hand of the First Father

Olgard is ruled by the gods and figure heads of its Kingdoms so there are little in terms of organisations. However one does exist called the "First hand of the First Father". This cult use to worship the Tyrant of Flesh and dedicated their entire life to freeing the said God. The cults leader was the son of the god of Flesh called Ra'thra, a demi-god. However the cult was soon eliminated and Ra'thra killed.


Olgard's culture is strange as it is made up of five subcultures from the five Kingdoms. However it can be generalised to say that the people of Olgard enjoy celebrating every day and even more so when a dragon comes to rest. However, when it comes to health they have little concern for it. Due to the near lack of illness, medicine is not used at all. Because of this, when a person becomes ill they are unable and even unwilling to help. The belief is that death has to come for everyone in the end and everything must have an end. So when someone shows signs of death they have to let it play out and not disturb the natural order.

Despite the long life of an Olgardian, they will only have 1 or 2 children in their lifetime. The traditional sexual desires of more normal creatures do not affect them. It is even rumored that lust simply cannot exist within the people of Olgard.

Religion is simple in Olgard as they follow a pantheon of 16 gods, 8 good gods or Saints and 8 dark gods called Tyrants. The worship of Tyrants is forbidden and one can't even say or write the name of one under the threat of punishment. That ability is left only to those with higher knowledge. The most common worshipped God is Elseir, God of fire and light and brother to Hellsna. Because of this most themes of Olgard are around fire and light so it is greatly incorporated in literature, music and architecture.

Due to the general peaceful nature of Olgardians, crime is near nonexistent with the most common being petty theft which would only occur an average one per 5 years.

Current events

Ever since the murder of the Princess Holly, Olgard has been at war with itself. This has caused some Olgardians to flee from the realm and driven all Dragons away. It is unknown who is winning or when things will end but this brings the risk of the defence against the Tyrants and other such entites infiltrating other realms and worlds.
