In a time when most of Albion's citizens had been happy to live secular lives following the declline of the old gods Avo and Skorm, now discredited by science and common sense, a man by the name of Albert wandered the land in spiritual despair, seeking answers that did not seem to exist anymore. He finally reached the town of Oakfield, an impoverished region where noithing grew but disease, and decided he'd seen enough of this world. He entered a cave, prepared to walk in darkness until he fell dead. Instead he reached a chamber deep in the cave and was suddenly bathed in a brilliant shaft of Light. The Light spoke to him, it filled him with a blissful serenity and it taught him the path. Albert the Luminous left the cave holding the Golden Oak. As soon as he planted it, the clouds parted and the sun shone down upon Oakfield. The land was filled with life, and its people saved. The Temple was erected shortly after, and both local farmers and people from afar flocked to join Albert's new gentle faith.
