April 4th, 2011 King Almani Dysio of Valtiir sent out an order to all his forces across the country to withdraw back to the capital city of Polita. This order affected every organization that operated under the Valtiir flag. This included the Silver Knights, Iron Guard, Blood Hounds, the army, navy and even individual police groups.
Soon after the rest of the region fell into chaos with gangs, bandits, guilds and nobles all fighting for power. About a year later after the dust settled, Valtiir was split into six independent city states. These states are Valencio, Polita, Valen, Tyano, Cielo and Lawless.
To this day the king has not stated the reason for this recall. Hundreds of thousands of people remain vexed and angry at his decision. Just as many trust his judgment and hope there was a very sound reason behind it.
