Drekis is an old Kingdom in Arcadia. It rose in power as the Vodan Empire fell into decline. After the decline of the Kingdom of Eridon in early 1510, Drekis again tried to expand and gain more power, but their efforts were blocked by their rival the Kingdom of Mistrya.
Drekis history tells the first settlers in Drekis survived a terrible storm by taking refuge in the mountain Wikk Lamdo. The Royal Family eventually took the surname "Wikk" after the mountain and named their Capital City Wikkthronrarenta.
Drekis was split into Principalities, with a hereditary Prince or Princess of a family being the lord of the Principality. The original families were cousins of the central Wikk Royal Family. The capital of each Principality is named after the ruling family. All of the Principalities serve under the Monarch.
Drekis came into it's own as a power after the decline of the Vodan Empire. Drekis annexed the West Vodan plains, which were incorporated as the Voldan County. The East Vodan plains, along with Old Vodan were taken by Kingdom of Mistrya. However the Kingdom of Eridon emerged as the premiere power on the continent, and Eridonian was considered the new Common Language of Arcadia
Drekis enjoyed close relations with the nation of Akuba before the start of the The Unforeseen War. The Unforeseen War began with the Akuban Forces capturing Tulwikk, attacking the Drekis Fleet at Cawksport assaulting the Iron Ridge and then moving inland. Drekis eventually drove the invading forces out. Since The Unforeseen War, relations between Akuba and Drekis have been poor. Tulwikk was renamed Outlast as punishment for barely putting up a fight and then collaborating with the Akubans.
War for ArcaidaEdit
In early 1510, the Kingdom of Eridon suffered from a Demon Invasion. Stromheim lost control of the surviving towns, and Drekis decided this was the opportunity to expand into an empire across the whole continent. Drekissin forces invaded both Mistrya and Eridon.
In 1510, Drekis was winning their war against Mistrya and had gained some wealth from the ruined towns of Eridon. In 1511, the tide of the war turned when the Dragon Scoria entered the war on Mistrya's side and destroyed many of the Drekissin forces.
At the same time, relations with Akuba worsened when the first King of Akuba was assassinated by a Drekissin. Months later, the surviving Royal Family in exile were murdered by a Drekissin Knight. At the time, Akuba was in the middle of a Civil War and has yet to respond.
