AN OVERVIEW AND IMPORTANT NOTE
Heated Negotiations and bitter rivalries are what destroy Draconis. New trade routes and hasty peace treaties are what save it. Through trade, war and alliances the Empires have found a means to co-exist with each other. Some long standing rivalries still haunt the lands but calmer Empires see this and try to avoid it all together. The constant conflicts and wars ensure that the 13 empires fight hard to keep above the fray, and even harder to keep what is theirs.
Draconis is a land filled with conflicts, contradictions and rivalries but it is a land of opportunity and wealth, if you know where to look. Below are the current political standings of the empires.
Due to constant conflict and small battles fought over a time period of three hundred years, the Black and Gold Empires have little love for each other. But recently, at the request of the Black Empire, the Golden Empire has agreed to call a weekly council in the hopes of finally settling their disputes. The tension runs high in the city and its people can feel the constant worry in their Leader. But hopefully this will finally bring an end to the long rivalry between the two Empires.
NEUTRAL: Green, Gray, Light-blue, Blue, Orange, Brown, White, Red, Purple, Light-Green, Turquoise
They are strong in their own beliefs, and with their rigid society they can't seen anything wrong with how the world is currently run. Thus the Purple Empire keeps to itself, watching the other Empires bicker and argue over land or trade routes while they happily adjust and simply remain content. They have no love for others and feel no need to aid them for the sake of charity. But despite their efforts to remain obsucre and unnoticed recent hunting’s has caught the eye of the Grey Mercenaries and has started a strange rivalry between the two. Though it has not come to blows, one can not help but feel it is only a matter of time.
NEUTRAL: Brown, Grey, Orange, White, Red, Turquoise, Light-Blue, Gold, Light-Green, Green, Gold, Black
The proud and powerful People of the Valley have long been strong allies with the Black Empire. During the conflicts between Black and Gold they stood by them and had lend not only their swords and axes but also their voices. The cunning and well voiced Turquoise people have used their fine charms during negotiations and more often than not got what they wanted. In regards to the other Empires they remain neutral and applicable of nothing else.
NEUTRAL: Green, Gray, Light-blue, Blue, Orange, Brown, White, Red, Purple, Light-Green
During the entire conflict with Obsidia the people of Firestalk have stood by their Golden allies through thick and thin. They are proud to fight for what they believe in and their beliefs go hand in hand with the Golden Empire. They despise Obsidia and wish for nothing more than to tear down their walls. But due to the council and truce they are currently taking a back seat. They can barely tolerate the Turquoise for throwing in their lot with Obsida but the hostilities has only been harsh words and nothing more.
NEUTRAL: Brown, Gray, Orange, White, Purple, Turquoise, Light-Blue, Gold, Light-Green, Green,
They are neutral and care little for the problems of others. The Mercenaries keep away from any sort of politics and simply fight for those with the highest bid of drakkals. But recently they have taken an interest in the Purple Empire. The hunting of their dragons, as they call them, is an abomination, and everyone is holding their breath for when the Grey Mercenaries will make their move.
NEUTRAL: Brown, Light-blue, Orange, White, Red, Turquoise, Purple, Gold, Light-Green, Green, Gold, Black
They have no leg to stand and so the Light-Green Empire stands for nothing. They hide in their new home, trying to stay away from conflict or war. The White Draconium Empire has sent many gifts and in some ways the Light-Green Empire does see them as allies or at least friends. They do not stand for anything but they do appreciate the kindness the White Empire has shown but currently stay out of the fray between the the Gold and Black cities.
NEUTRAL: Green, Gray, Light-blue, Orange, Brown, Red, Purple, Blue, Black, Blue, Gold
The kind and often playful souls of Whither Peak have carefully and continuously made sure to anger no one. Their trade routes run to and fro from their valleys and they often send elaborate gifts to the other Empires. They have no issues with any of the other empires and will eagerly embrace alliances should it be offered. Their strongest alliance by far is the RonYu Province. Due to a small incident years ago which included the Blue Empire's Prince the two kingdoms have seen to it that they remain on friendly terms.
FRIENDLY: Blue, Light-Green
NEUTRAL: Green, Gray, Light-blue, Gold, Orange, Brown, White, Red, Purple, Black
The green Empire has seen some conflict with the Gold due to land ownership and, as of recently, trade routes. Though the Empire currently has a neutral and outside stance to any other conflicts it has sent messengers to Obsidia. Many can only guess what this might mean but some have wondered if the Green Empire has started a small alliance with the Black Empire.
NEUTRAL: Gray, Light-blue, Orange, Brown, White, Red, Turquoise, Purple, Gold, Light-Green
The Black Empire is in the middle of negotiations with the Golden Empire to settle their differences. Over a period of three hundred years they have managed to hold a bitter grudge and the Incident of Galathorn was the breaking point. A truce was signed dictating the halt of any hostilities until the two Empires can come to some sort of agreement. The peace is hanging by a thread and anything can set off another fight. Their only allies are the Turquoise Empire but the well voiced and prideful Echo Valley has stood by them since the beginning.
TRUCE: Gold, Light-Green
NEUTRAL: Green, Gray, Light-blue, Blue, Orange, Brown, White, Red, Purple
The Blue Empire has mostly kept to itself a friendly-neutrality has formed between them and Meridian due in part to trade but mostly of the minor incident of almost thirty years back. In general the RonYu has little interest in the goings on of the other Empires. But with the strength of their armies, they are confident no one will actually dare to declare war on them.
NEUTRAL: Green, Gray, Light-blue, Orange, Brown, Black, Red, Turquoise, Purple, Gold, Light-Green
The Empire of Seamere is a hard one to pin down, on the one hand he keeps good relations with most if not all of the other Empires but always in such a way that it is not binding. The strong trade in the empire ensures it can stay strong if any war should break out but currently it is at peace with everyone.
NEUTRAL: Brown, Gray, Orange, White, Red, Turquoise, Purple, Gold, Light-Green, Green, Gold, Black
The Teeth are a tribal and very intricate group. They fight against each other and welcome no outsiders. This has caused them to have strained and alienated relationships with the rest of Draconis. They have no allies and fight anyone who dare threaten them. But most of their battles are fought inside. In between tribes there is violent hatred and old grudges that never seem to fade.
NEUTRAL: Gray, Light-blue, Orange, White, Red, Turquoise, Purple, Gold, Light-Green, Green, Gold, Black
