Welcome to the OUAN Wiki

The OUAN Site Wiki is a labor of love created by the current members of OUAN for the future members of OUAN. Our goal is to make the canon history of our site as easy to peruse and learn as possible for those of you who wish to join our family. Within you can find everything from species to characters to members to canon tales and so much more.

WE ARE IN BETA TESTING RIGHT NOW. ALTHOUGH 99% OF THE WIKI IS DONE, WE ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF FACT CHECKING, PROOFREADING, AND COMPLETING A FEW EXTRA PAGES AS WE REALIZE THAT WE NEED TO MAKE THEM. Please excuse our mess. If you find empty pages, we are working on filling them post haste. If you find conflicting information, we are working on making our facts align across pages and we would be happy to tell you which piece of conflicting information is correct. We apologize for any confusion, with luck Beta Testing will be over the and the Wiki will be 100% done shortly.

THANK YOU!

King Arthur is a figure from tales of British history circa the 5th and 6th centuries. His true existence is heavily disputed with many historians relegating him to that of a figure in folk tales and legends. He was supposedly the figure to unite Britain against Saxon invasion and usher in a time of peace and enlightenment prior to his death. Tales of the Holy Grail and figures such as Lancelot were added to the legend over the years as the stories grew and evolved.

King Arthur is one of the central tales of Once Upon a Nightmare, for it is amidst the drama of the High Court that the Walking Starvation was first encountered and it is during the unrest in the High Court that many of the kingdoms splintered or fell to the Blight. Even now the Blight has ended, it is the High Court that the newest threat to Ga'leah, the cult Veritas, seeks to destroy first.

Canon Tale



Once there was a man who sought to unite the kingdoms of Ga’leah. Uther raised an army and one by one dominated each land until all of the Kingdoms recognized him as their ‘High King’. But peace won through violence is difficult to maintain, and so Uther was poisoned by an unknown enemy and it seemed the kingdoms would once again be free to rule themselves.

But an enchanted sword revealed Uther’s heir, a young man destined to truly unite the lands. Arthur founded the capital of Caerleon and ushered in a time of peace and utopia unlike anything Ga’leah had ever known. It was not to last.

When his wife’s affair with his champion and best friend came to light, Sir Lancelot was banished from Caerleon and Queen Gwenhwyfar was destined to burn at the stake. Everyone expected Lancelot to ride to her rescue, and so he did, but not as a man. Lancelot came at the helm of a horde of the undead who laid siege to Caerleon. King Arthur was unable to destroy the corpse of his best friend, and so the Queen took up Excalibur and did so herself…leading the charge against the infected.

Nimue was not content to see her adoptive son die and abducted a Grail Maiden, Rapunzel, whose blood she could drain to resurrect her son. Lancelot rose from the dead but found it difficult to deal with both the sins he had committed and the sins that had been committed in his name. Meanwhile, Merlin had been infected by the Blight and after months of struggling to fight it, nearly succumbed. It was only Nimue's efforts to save him as well that saw him rise from the dead, this time as a man she did not recognize.

After months of wallowing in alcohol and his own self pity, the great King Arthur emerged to find his wife still fighting his battles. Surprisingly, both were able to forgive each other for their transgressions and together forged a kingdom strong enough to support the refugees of the Blight and even, in time, strong enough to work together with heroes from all over Ga'leah and Allutheria to destroy the Blight and save the world.

In the months since the Blight, the High Court has been attempting to help Ga'leah rebuild and recover from all that they endured. But a new enemy has already set sights upon them and the 'truth' will not set them free...
