The Factions of The Realm
Asgerian Republic: The Asgerian Republic is made up of the Elven and Dwarven kingdoms. While the two normally do not get along well, they have established a joint faction in order to contend with the other factions that have risen in recent years and begun to threaten them. The Asgerian Republic desires for things to return to how they were in the days of the Old Order, when Elves and Dwarves ruled and there was peace across the realm. They tend to treat those who are not Elves or Dwarves as pragmatic, and will not go to great lengths to help you if you are of a "lesser" race.

Crimeran Empire: Elves and Dwarves have always seen themselves as the "superior" race, and they treated Orcs, Goblins, and other "lesser" races with contempt. The Crimeran Empire is made up mostly of Orcs, Goblins, and other mixed races. While the Crimeran Empire is seen as a "barbaric" faction by those not in it, it is actually well structured and has a system of order and law. Nowadays the Crimeran Empire is at war with the Asgerian Republic and holds a weak truce with the Imperial Order. The faction wishes to establish for itself an empire where the "barbaric" races can live in peace and not be treated as less than by others. Many criminals or former slaves have also joined with the Crimerans, seeing it as a second chance at life.

Imperial Order: After decades of watching Elves and Dwarves fight and devastate the landscape, and with the Crimeran Empire rising, humans banded together and established the Imperial Order. They are currently the most powerful faction, even if only because they have the sheer numbers. The faction is known for taking impressive care of it's citizens, and it's "peaceful" takeovers and fair treatment of those it conquers. Food and other goods are often given away to those that are conquered, and all are given citizenship. That said, the faction is also known for its ruthless treatment of those who rebel or break the law.

The New Order: The New Order is me of resistance movement than an actual established faction. Many do not even acknowledge the legitimacy of the faction. The New Order is made up of a wide variety of individuals. The faction desires to create a New Order where all races are treated equally, and coexist on peaceful terms.

Religion in The Realm
(Players are welcome to develop religions! Religions that are exceptionally well done will be featured and adopted as "main religions" by the various factions.)
