Caught in Rebellion
history of the empire
For as since the time of our grandfather’s grandfathers, the empire has been in power. The imperial’s have kept the sectrets of our forefathers well. No one knows the current emperor or has ever known the previous emperors. He (or she) is simply known as the emperor and may not even exist at all or could be the originall emperor that began his conquering of our continent. All that is remembered from the establish ment is the destruction and enslavement of all opposing enteties.
First came the enslavement of the nomadic gnolls of the savannah flanking our capitol. Then came the total annihalation of the kobolds of the western woodlands. And soon all other settlements either fell to the might of our great armies or simply gave us their cities and people till finally only one pocket of civilizion other than our empire remained, a small pocket of nomadic wizards and warlocks. When confronted they produced a large resistance untill finally after having their food supplies exausted did they give in. Ever since those deadly wizard encounters the entity of the emperor ordered any being with magical affiliation, large or small, to be sent to education camps to be taught only to use holy magic rather than destructive. Ever since then magic has been outlawed in the empire and any visiting mage is constantly monitered and is never allowed any kind of pivacy.
And now the only ones that are free of imperial rule are those of the 3rd continent, which is only available to be reached by air and are not willing to give up the secrets to their homeland, and those who dwell in the feywild. It would be foolishness to attempt any kind of rebelion against our mighty nation. Glory to the emperor!
