The Order 1886 – Story

The Order 1886 is set in the Victorian Era in London and travels back to the Dark Ages. It is after the events that happened during this era that inspired the creation of The Order 1886. An event unknown that took place during the period of the Dark Ages led to the mutation of a chunk of the human breed which were then labelled as. ‘Halfbreeds’. This brought about an undesirable change in history in addition to making the future of Europe extremely gloomy. To bring about a revolution Arthur got together a group of knights whose sole purpose was to defy the advances made by the Halfbreeds which in turn would ensure the protection of the rest of the society.

Black Water is a magical potion that needs to be ingested by the knights in order to ensure that they can fight the battle for an extended period of time, even centuries as it is this potion that makes them a lot stronger. However, even this magical potion could do less to make sure that the Halfbreeds do not win. However, the winning streak of the Halfbreeds comes to an end with the onset of the Industrial Revolution. The soaring development in technology leads to the creation of varied kinds of instruments and weapons to beat the Halfbreeds. The Order 1886 is the story of the war that still continues in that period and how 4 great warriors try to combat the same to bring peace back into their world.
