Empire, Kingdoms, Nations, and Political Entities
- The Teachers are a group of benevolent entities dedicated to training heroes to defend the world against evil.
- The Shadow Empire is a small group of demi-liches who back villains. They are patient, quiet, and totally committed to the conquest of everything.
- The underworld is not a society in itself, but a series of interacting secret societies that exist in the shadow of the civilized state. These groups include criminal gangs, assassins, the black market, traffickers, and other people of ill repute.
Religions, Sects, Beliefs, and Traditions
- The Alliance acts as a humanitarian organization.
- This group dwells in a former Dragon Imperial Palace. The order primarily trains students of good religious traditions. They host negotiations. They have an extensive religious library, including forbidden texts, dating back to the Age of Heroes.
- The Axiomites are empire spanning religions seeking to bring order and law to every plane, and implementing religious law. They are less territorial than influential, seeking to integrate themselves into every possible government at every level. They seek to suppress and slow the return of chaotic forces to the civilized world.
Cults of the Elemental Lords
- Dwarven United is the non-national arm of the Great Dwarven Union. This organization works for the benefit of dwarves in other nations without seeking to supplant the governments of those nations.

- This is a dwarven cult dedicated to protecting dwarven craftsmen, and any other artisan they feel is unable to stand up for themselves.
- Transgressor is a collective term for various chaotic sects.
- The Lime Burners are a Trangressor cult unique to the dwarves.
- There are many regional orders in Endhaven. These orders are connected to planes, nations, states, or cities. Many will have heard of these orders, while many others will not. Most in these orders are proud of their service and voluntarily seek to uphold the goals of their order. The Astrean Knights who ride eagles, the Dragon Guard of the Palace of Eternity, and the Order of the Darkwood Forest each represent a territorial order.
- These are the elite troops of the Astrean Flying Cities.
- These are the defenders of the Palace of Eternity and the Dragon Emperor.
- These are the elite defenders of Charystos. They are loyal to the city.
- This order manages the Darkwood Forest. They are widely regarded as a terrorist organization.
- Many people do not have a 'religion.' Instead, they live by traditional ways. They do as their fathers did. These hunter-gatherers are steeped in the wild. They worship the great animals that live in the deepest wilds. They seek to remain in harmony with these powerful beings, as they wish to continue living off the fauna of their land.
The Wars of Law and Chaos
- Many temporary and ill considered alliances were established. No over-arching institutions were created. See above for the modern organizations that were born during the tumultuous years.
- The Psychotic Assembly was a development group of powerful psi-Transgressors. They were eventually wiped out when their fellow Transgressors, considering them too dangerous to let live, slaughtered them to the man and burned their research. Some of their works survived, including the aboleth, the intellect devourers, and the dreaded thought slayer. Among their more accepted developments was the psychotic charger.
The Thule Era
- Thule fought with his peers, eventually ruling all. He then abdicated, which split his empire and created three smaller empires.
- After the War of Good and Evil, mercenary companies seized lands and kingdoms, raising their own empires.
- General Thule defeated his enemies to create this empire. He abdicated, and his sons formed the Dragon, Phoenix, and Tiger empires from his holdings.
- From its ruins arose the Malachite Empire. Its holdings were primarily in the Alchemic realms.
