- WAR OF GOOD AND EVIL
- THREE EMPIRES
During the Thule Empire, the western border was heavily wild. Generations of settlers and soldiers settled there, striving to tame the vast wilderness. Many campaigns were needed to tame the savage people who lived there. Their great achievement was the Imperial Highway that ran from Charystos, along Hadea, and through Clydae to the furthest island of Ger Dagum.
When the Griffon Empire was established, its ruler took Fort Resolute as his capital. Over the years, the empire continuously added to this massive construct by using goblin and hobgoblin slave labor. The Empire continuously campaigned to expand its lands. Its people grew able, militant, and independent.
The capital was later moved to Fera Nea.
- WARS OF LAW AND CHAOS
The Griffon Empire sought to remain neutral during the Wars of Law and Chaos. The end came when the Empire allied with Law, but its people allied with Chaos. From that, a long and bloody civil war ripped the empire apart. From that arose the new lands of the Border League, the Twelve Kingdoms, the Great Dwarven Union, and the Feral Nation.
