The New Kingdom, also identified as Graceland, is a land near the foothills of the Great Mountains, 10 days' travel west of Evenhold. It was established 300 years ago by citizens of the Old Kingdom of Cyrak, west of the mountains, who fled east across the range when their land was invaded and conquered by the Dark Lords from a neighboring land. The refugees established a new flourishing kingdom, the capital and cultural center of which is Kingscourt, a city situated in the northern portion of the New Kingdom. The kingdom's agricultural center is Agroville to the west; its military and industrial center is Ironcastle to the east; its religious center is Shrine City to the south; and its financial center is Tradetown near the middle of the territory.
The kingdom is first introduced in Sam Ruby's adventure Redemption as "Graceland", and is revisited, with more detailed history, as the "New Kingdom" in Ruby's The Curse of Talon.
