Lightfall Island



    Lightfall Island is one of the ten kingdoms of Alfheim and is currently ruled by jarl Ljos. It is 127 miles from North to South, 82 miles East to West, and 6,612 mi² in area (a little smaller than the real world nation of Kuwait) and has a small population of only about 2,000.

    Map of Lightfall Island.

    Lightfall Island is divided into ten regions each ruled by a Lord (except for Hearic) who swears allegiance to the jarl of Lightfall. Each Lord is expected to produce ten trained soldiers to fight for the jarl when called upon.

    The Wardens of Lightfall are the sworn defenders of the island led by Lady Tiressa. They are trained soldiers made up of alfar and einherjar who serve as the guards and standing army of the kingdom. Far stronger than any average human, they are trained in a variety of martial arts, patrol in full suits of armor, and wield spears and shields as their primary weapons.

    If you are interested in playing a member of the Wardens, please reach out to the management team. The application process is brief and painless! We're more interested in getting to know you as a player and why you're interested in playing this role than we are "testing" your role play combat skills (see rule #2).

    The Legal Process
    When an individual is accused of a crime or an offense, the Wardens of Lightfall will either incarcerate the individual in the dungeon or release them on bond--depending on the severity of the offense and whether or not the individual is a flight risk.

    The althing, an assembly of freemen and women, serves as the court system for Lightfall. The accused is allowed an advocate to present his or her case, while the Wardens of Lightfall or the offender's accuser will present their own. The althing will then review the information and cast their votes to find the defendant innocent or guilty. The jarl may veto the decision of the althing if it is not within the confines of the law (i.e. they vote to punish a clearly innocent person). Only crimes against the crown are tried outside of the althing by the jarl and a small group of trusted advisers.

    If the defendant is found guilty, the punishment will depend on the type of crime. Crimes against people or property are compensated with a weregild (blood money), either in the form of gold or extracted through ritual combat against their accuser known as the holmgang. The duel lasts until one of the participants is unable to continue fighting or the accuser is satisfied.

    The most severe punishment the crown can issue is outlawry. Outlaws are, as the name implies, outside the protection of the law. It is legal for anyone to commit any offense against an outlaw, up to and including murder. Only the most heinous of crimes result in outlawry.
