Welcome to the OUAN Wiki


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!

Pocahontas was a Native American woman who heavily impacted the colonial history of the United States in the early 17th century. Her life was loosely used as inspiration for a Disney animated feature in 1995. There was also a more realistic motion picture adaption of her influence on Jamestown and a fantasy film blockbuster inspired by her life.

Once Upon a Nightmare seeks to draw inspiration from a variety of different cultural sources, and so it was decided to adapt Pocahontas to the site's mythology. They were originally placed in Solhara where the society was more tribal and they could be given a land provided them by the Green Man. However, when problems arose with plotting the characters, it was decided to move them into a more populated area and combine their tale with that of the druids. Some characters were taken from the Disney animated feature.

Canon Tale



The Druids were a private group who lived in the sovereign society of Deepwood within the borders of Caerleon. Although they were not forced to recognize the authority of anyone aside from the gods, they chose to show respect and honor to the High Court that in turn respected and honored them. Descended from the magical Dryads that now protect their village in tree form, they were people who have learned a little magic and lived in harmony with the world around them. Led by a High Priest and Priestess, their seclusion was been sacrificed during the Blight in favor of helping refugees. Crysta, an apprentice of the High Priestess, Magi, was particularly active in aiding those stranded outside of Deepwood to acclimate to the druid lifestyle and find some manner of comfort and safety there. This was how she first encountered, Zak, a young man working with the Virginia Company, a group of Mercenaries hired by the nephew of the Evil Queen of Calladahn, Lord John, to find him food, resources, and a land to rule. The Virginia Company may have bitten off more than they could chew, however, for they are not the only ones seeking to battle the druids of Deepwood. In addition the Virginia Company, the former High Priest of the Druids, Hexxus has returned. Infected by the Blight and left for dead, he survived and joined the cult of Veritas, determined to remove all magic from the world, including that of the druids.

The Druids are no longer alone in Deepwood. The Powhatan were a tribe whose loyalty and worship to the Green Man was rewarded with the creation of a special oasis in the Solharan desert. Sadly, their Oasis succumbed to the Blight and the Powhatan were forced to flee. They salvaged cuttings of what plants they could and fled, seeking refuge with the Druids. Pochontas, the daughter of their chief, believes that peace with the Virginia Company can be achieved and she is determined to bridge the divide between them, beginning with one of their warriors, a man named John Smith.
