Nations and Major Charters

From Lord of the Craft
Jump to: navigation, search

As the Descendents trail throughout the various Realms of our world, a great number of Kingdoms, Empires, Federations, and Federations have graced and cursed the land they have raised their walls around. Many, to this day, still stand stalwart against the tides of the sea. Having fallen and risen from the ashes time and time again, these homes have stood against the test of time. To their merit, further civilizations have embraced the morning's warmth, and seek to provide unique and never-seen-before cultural concepts and ideas.

The lists below are broken into two sections: Current Nations, and Current Major Charters. A Major Charter is a Charter of appropriate size, one that has reached Tier 3 or 4, and a Nation is a civilization with the respective title.
