Imperium of Nepleslia

A gritty empire full of industrious, heavily armed men of action. Some struggle to forge peace, while others live war as a way of life. Home to humans and cyborgs.

New Dusk Conclave

The New Dusk Conclave was founded to help the odds of those in service to the government. They succeeded, but it brought them to a realization. Why stop there, when there was a world waiting to be improved. But it was not the world they were founded upon. So the NDC took to space in search a world to call their own, determined to build a better world then they left. The path ahead and time will decide if they can, and what price.

Kingdom of Neshaten

After a terrible Civil War nearly caused the extinction of their race, the Neshaten have spent the past seven hundred years rebuilding what is left of their civilization. With their civilization mostly rebuilt, they've turned their eyes to space, with the hopes of finding allies and to explore its great depths. Known as the 'Fox Nation', the Kingdom is home to three distinct races and all wanting to see what the universe has to offer, it can't be dangerous... can it? It's all fuzzy tails and big smiles, and a lot of terrorists too!
