    History (open)
    Napoleon Bonaparte comes to power in France, thus starting the Napoleonic Wars. Germany and Russia enter into a pact with France, as they see France as a thorn in Britannia's side.

    The Mexican revolution happens, throwing the Spanish Empire into disarray. Mexico expands, taking over Central America. South Africa, no longer under Spanish enforcement, begins forming into many nations. Mexico emerges as an imperial power, although it is not as powerful as the European powers. World war 1 begins, with the primary focus on North America.

    Mexico begins pushing to the north, capturing past Spanish colonies. Britannia expands the American colonies to the west, combating French forces. It stops at the Mississippi river. mexico now control the west coast. French America, now being locked between Mexico and Britannia, is useless to France, who sells it to Britannia in the Louisiana Purchase.

    Russia begins expanding south from Alaska through French Canada, and soon enters a war with Mexico. Russia defeats Mexico, and ceases the entire west coast of America. Britannia defeats French Canada, completely controlling Canada(other than Russian Canada).

    After World War 1, both France and Spain saw an era of weakening. Britannia and Russia were on the rise due to new-found territories in the west, while France and Spain were losing there imperial fight for glory. Spain is now a mere shadow, laughed at by all others. France is hanging by a hair, as it's only colony, French Indochina, is under threat from the emerging Japanese Empire. Prussia and Austria are fearing for their lives, as a powerful Russia and growing Germany breath down their necks. Slowly, the world is collapsing into another war.

    The powers of the world have begun an economical take-over of China, pressuring it to sign all unfair pacts and trade deals. In 1900, the Boxer Rebellion destroys all embassies, but the combined effort of Russian and Japanese troops ended it. Japan invades China, Korea, and Manchuria, and succeeds in it's campaign.

    Becoming bolder, Japan attacks French Indochina. Russia, still having an agreement with France, responds by invading Manchuria. French reinforcements don't arrive in time, and Japan defeats the Russian forces, thus gaining Indochina. Britannia, worried about Japan expanding towards Australia, makes a pact with Russia in case of a Japanese attack. Japan, now being destroyed from the inside by nationalist movements, sells China and Manchuria to Britannia and Russia, respectively.

    Germany, after many years of gathering resources and people, invade Prussia and Austria. Russia responds with the annexation of Poland and Finland, while Britannia takes over Sweden and Norway. Using their new-found territory, both countries declare war on Germany. The Ottoman Empire sides with Germany and closes the Suez Canal, thus cutting of Britannia's colonies of India, Australia, and China. Germany succeeds in the capture of Austria and Prussia, and attacks the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire, not able to sustain the war effort, falls apart. A short skirmish between Britannia and Italy results in Britannia taking over Italy, along with all land previously owned by the Ottoman Empire.


    The last imperial war happened between Mexico and Britannia, as the territory of Texas lead of a revolt for independence. Britannia soundly defeated Mexico, thus gaining Texas and other territories, such as Utah and Colorado. Mexico is reduced to a grovelling country, which completely relies on Britannia for it's economy.

    At the current time, the leading forces of the world are Japan, Russia, Britannia, and Germany.


    The Illuminati (open)
    Historically the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776 to oppose superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to support women's education and gender equality. Due to their hatred of the Templar, the Illuminati orchestrated the Washington Rebellion, but failed. Nevertheless, the Illuminati proved that they were a force to be reckoned with, and the Templar left them alone. The Illuminati, capitalizing on the formation of the Britannian Empire, began growing into a power force. Taking control of large corporations, and members of the royal court, they have evolved into a gigantic society, having a strong hold over resources, money, and people. Today, the Illuminati have a firm grip on the dominions of America, Canada, and the Mexican Empire.
    The location of the Illuminati Headquarters are known to a selected few; many, however, believe that they are based in New York, the economical capital of America.

    The Knights Templar (open)
    The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon, commonly known as the Knights Templar, the Order of the Temple or simply as Templars, were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian military orders and were among the most relevant actors of the Christian finance. Officially endorsed by the Catholic Church around 1129, the Order became a favored charity throughout Christendom and grew rapidly in membership and power. Non-combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom, innovating financial techniques that were an early form of banking, and building fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land.
    The Templar's existence was tied closely to the Crusades; when the Holy Land was lost, support for the Order faded. Rumors about the Templar's secret initiation ceremony created mistrust and King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Order, took advantage of the situation. In 1307, many of the Order's members in France were arrested, tortured into giving false confessions, and then burned at the stake. Under pressure from King Philip, Pope Clement V officially disbanded the Order in 1312. As for the leaders of the Order, the elderly Grand Master Jacques de Molay, who had confessed under torture, retracted his confession. Geoffroi de Charney, Preceptor of Normandy, also retracted his confession and insisted on his innocence. Both men were declared guilty of being relapsed heretics, and they were sentenced to burn alive at the stake in Paris on 18 March 1314.
    The remainder of the Order fled to England, where they amassed their strength until the 1600's. The order took over the British Empire, thus becoming more powerful and rich than it has ever before. Through the wars that Britain led, the Templar took control of all European nations. First France, Spain, and Portugal, fueling Napoleon's conquests. Their power spread to Germany, Prussia, and Poland, then Italy, and some of the Ottoman Empire. Currently, the Templar are the one and only secret society in Europe, using their power to defend this world from all non-humans.
    Rumors suggest that Templar operate out of London, although some say that they have bases in Berlin and Paris.

  2. I got a quick question on Tricksters. They can appear to be anything right? Because they play tricks on the mind?
     
  3. Pretty much.
     
  4. Super interesting setting. But what exactly do you have in mind for plot? I don't need all the details, just what sort of goal are we starting out with? 'Cuz I don't recall seeing anything mentioned. Correct me if I'm wrong though...
