The Diaries of James Purcell


They say that for every decision made, there is a world where the opposite has been made. The worlds of England and Albion are two such worlds. Both developed technology the same way how ever Albion’s point of divergence was caused by the birth of one child.

Arthur Pendragon, the prophesied child that would create a new kingdom and be the greatest ruler of all time. In our world, the birth of Arthur and death of Uther’s wife lead to a mass purge of magic users and disappearance of magic from our world. However, in Albion The queen didn’t die and Uther did not hunt magic users. The Pendragon’s rule lasted for over five generations and with the support and aid of magic users, Camelot has lasted to this day.


This long rule has come with unfortunate side effects, Magic wars have lets the world dying, Storms ravage the land and monsters caused by wild spells are slowly destroying the natural life of the world.


Our worlds are separated by the Vail. This sub world is a barrier that keeps are world separated. This barrier is not solid, there are hidden pathways that connect our worlds. Those magic users of our world new of them and used them to escape Uther’s purge however they are small and not able to transport anything bigger then a horse or cow so difficult to get enough people through to form an invasion force.


Lord Norlan Bracegirdle, a genius with steam and Aetheric technology invented a ship capable of transporting large objects and groups across the vail. The first ship was able to cross the vail but due to lack of magic or Aether as scientist now call it, was unable to travel back. A second ship was created that could make a return journey across the Vail.


Something went wrong and the second ship was lost. The project was delayed and the first ship was sold to a captain of our world. After years of study Lord Bracegirdle has figured out how to get the ship and its technology back to his world but there is a problem.


The ship is now rebuilt, crewed and in constant use by a Captain who will not give it up. As the plans are drawn up for a fresh invasion of our world, the captain and the crew have to fight to protect not just family and friends, they also have to fight to protect there world from the coming darkness.
