Hell on Europe - 1430

By:

An alternate Europe where Hell has broken loose.

The year is 1430 AD. This is Europe. It is not, I suspect, the Europe which you know, but rather our Europe.

It is hard to believe that our worlds diverged so recently - until only a few years ago, someone from our world would have seemed completely normal to you - perhaps a bit antiquated, of course, but that is to be expected. But now, the differences are staggering.

It was only seven years ago that Mount Vesuvius erupted, and that the incredible force behind the eruption tore a rift through the world, leaving our Europe inexorably linked to Hell. It was not long before the first demons began to appear, horrific creatures, more capable than any man, which began to wreak havoc across the landscape. Some simply destroyed. Others tempted, offering power, or pleasure. They all brought darkness.

Alongside them appeared vastly increased numbers of witches and sorcerers, who, granted access to the raw energies of Hell itself proved more powerful than ever.

And yet, what had gone before continued - the war between the French and the English did not cease. Suppression of the Hussites continued. The efforts to drive the Moors from the Iberian Peninsula were not halted. And in all of these cases, when manpower proved insufficient, sorcery was likely to be employed.

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
