Landscapes...
Entrance my mind with thoughts of ancient times.
I wonder...
Did they walk this path?

Open seas...
An endless horizon they seem.
I wonder...
Where did they go?

Nightsky,
source of light and dark.
I wonder...
Did they comprehend?

Did they comprehend?
Did they comprehend?
Did they comprehend?
Did they comprehend?

Seasons running through my veins,
like snow melting on my skin.
They crawl beyond my flesh
and gasp my yearning soul.

Alas!
The force of divinity.
What caused its end?
What caused this?

What caused its end?
What caused its end?
What caused its end?
Oh... the end.

I drown in thoughts.
Yet, answers have abandoned this place
long ago.
Blood runs cold from my arm...

Another one is now to die.
Is he the last to see
the graceful entity of Nature?
Is he the last to have his heart and soul
nailed to Her embrace?

He passes on...

Song for the Era
For the first time in my life
I've seen the fire within your eyes
My mind it screams for shelter now
I know i've got to resist some how

My religion my certain death
My salvation my sacriledge
My inner sanctum my prophecy
You've become everything and more to me

So our souls will be one
A new era has begun
Fantasies will come true
Not only for the Chosen Few

For freedom is a two edged sword
And life is only a gift for gods
Straight from the heart of the serpent's kiss


To see something as it really is
My prescious kingdom my empire
My tragedy and my desire
My life's blood my shining light
Feels like i am finally alive

Isolated World in pain the tyrants bitter triumph
Devoted celebrate the empires ice cold victory
Fed their soulless bodies to the vultures and the lions
They're scared to raise their voices in disasters long foreseen

I hate your lives
Falsehood and lies
I hate your World
Your paradise drowns in chaos to breed

World Anarchy
World Anarchy

Kings ruling emptiness and terror over ruins
Fast destruction slow death to all masters of the earth
Kings rulers autocrats in corpse mountain séance
The harvest of all cultures raped by axe and sword

I hate your lives
Falsehood and lies
I hate your World
Your paradise drowns in chaos to breed

World Anarchy
World Anarchy

Coming down

Lost are the weak
Slaves in service for a dream so fake
Religion can't save all those lived without soul
Fall with the prophets and saints as hell
Is burning the last seeds of hope

And the last thing they will see
As their icons fall from grace
A dark horde coming from the east

To bring the old Reich to its grave

Total chaos takes control now

I hate your falsehood and lies
I see your dreams drowning in World anarchy

Make the sadness go away
Come back another day
For years I've tried to teach
But their eyes are empty
Empty too I have become
For them I must die
A sad and troubled race
An ungrateful troubled place

[chorus]
I see the sadness in their eyes
Melancholy in their cries
Devoid of all the passion
The human spirit cannot die
Look at the pain around me
This is what I cry for
Look at the pain around me
This is what I'll die for

Make the sadness go away
Come back another day
The things I've said and done
Don't matter to anyone
But still, you push me to see
Something, I can never be
Why am I their shattered king?
I don't mean anything

I see the sadness in their eyes
Melancholy in their cries
Devoid of all the passion
The human spirit cannot die
Look at the pain around me
This is what I cry for
Look at the pain around me
This is what I'll die for

Melancholy-Iced Earth

England: has created the beginnings of a colonial Empire with the 13 Colonies and territory in Canada

Aztecs: Have Conquered all the way down to Panama, and have fortified their border with Iberian Mexico

Morningstar: Has expanded slightly, but has made a point not to connect its border to Iberia as of yet, its population has been growing exponentially with Government encouragement.
 
-Belife in the strong, instead of the meek shall inherit the earth and the idea of turning the other cheek, Luciferians believe in strength and revenge as being part of life...

-No real sins of the flesh, Drinking, Drugs, etc are going to be fully legel

-Lucifer is their god, and they believe that he was cast down by God, but eventually became Gods equal, and theirfor they have a believe in Duality.

-A believe in Both Reincarnation and Hell as part of the afterlife, though Hell is not seen seen as a bad place, just a place where believes can practice the tenates of the religion without persecution

-Equality, everybody is equal in service of Lucifer
 
he Discovery of the Infernal Kingdom. (1677)


Since 1450, a mystery had plagued the minds of some European scholoars. In 1375, records show that the small Luciferian Norse Population, estimated to have been between 1000 to 3500 of Iceland took to boats in the middle of the night, as a response to the forced Catholicization measures put in place by the current King of Denmark. The incident was ignored by most, as the King of Denmark had more pressing issues to attend to on the mainland. The Incident was largely forgotten, except for a few historians in the Kalmar Union and the Morningstar Republic. In 1720, a historian by the name of Meron Salumá managed to obtain the funding to Search for the Lost Luciferian Norse in Canada.


In 1721, he left New Babylon, with 85 Men and the Ship Trinity, which was rated for Ice and river travel, as he was following the information given by some documents that showed the Lost Luciferian colony was probably in the Northern Regions of Canada.


After a 6 Week Journey up the Atlantic, the Trinity passed through the main British and Swedish Settlements, and into the relatively uncharted wilderness. In May of 1721, at the Northern Most area of Hudson Bay, in a small Swedish settlement, Maroon Saluma realized that the expedition would have to split up. 40 Men, including Meron were selected to follow a few tips that had been given to them by some Inuit trappers, and the rest of the crew would take the Trinity, into the Islands to the North.


4 Weeks later, Moron’s party had managed to find little, despite tails told to them by Inuit Fur trappers and the last survivor of a Swedish expiation, who told them of being attacked by crazed men with guns. He was believed by nobody except Meron and several members of the Expition.


On June 2nd, while the men were setting up a camp, they came across 4 Norsemen dressed in clothing from the late 1400’s and carrying olden style muskets and Axes. After some difficulty, the Norsemen managed to explain that they were from the Infernal Kingdom.


When Meron heard those words, he knew he had done it, he had found the Lost Colony. The Expedition was led back to the Main settlement of the Norse, which seemed to hold about 1,800 people.


Meron had a long discussion with King Bjorn Lejavsson, and Meron pledged to have the Morningstar Republic send an emissary and to open up trade with the Infernal Kingdom.


Part 2:
The Infernal Kingdom and its effects on the rest of the Great European Powers

The British Empire:
The British Empire was greatly startled by this turn of events, a second Luciferian nation, though small had potentially world changing implications, especially as the Infernal Kingdom lay in Between the Kalmar Union and the British Empire’s colony’s and projected spheres of influence in North America. Relations between the British Empire and the Morningstar Republic began to grow colder. Also, some parts of the British Government began advocating an annexation of the Infernal Kingdom, though it would place Morningstar in position to seize Jamaica.


The Kalmar Union
Opinion of the situation in the Kalmar Union fell roughly in the same category of the British Empire, but as the Infernal Kingdom was ruled by Norsemen, the reactions were not as strong in favor of taking over the Infernal Kingdom as Britain.


Iberia
Reactions in Iberia were outraged, as was to be expected, and many began calling for an another Invasion of Morningstar, to cut off support for the New Luciferian Nation, but results were slow as Iberia at this time was not on a war footing, but with the Pope strongly calling for action against the Infernal Kingdom, something would have to be done.
