New domain name

From now on you can visit rpgfaction.com to access this website. I think the name is easy to remember. Our games will have a lot of factions fighting against each other, anyway. So, I think this is an appropriate name that fits our concept really well.

Amazail Kingdom

Amazail Kingdom is located in the southern and central region, on top of the Ankania Kingdom and just below the Zenman Empire. Among the factions in the world, Amazail is the strongest. They quietly surpassed the Zenman for dozen of years now. However, only the sharp scholars and intellectuals have notice this trend and realizing this unique situation: This vassal state actually is stronger than the declining central empire and even surpassed it.

Amazail has great balance, is strong and deceptively powerful. They don't have any aspect that can be call "the best", but they are great in all aspects: Politic, military, offense, defense, economy, culture. They are the most well rounded nation and have the most talented human resource. They have no weakness. None.

Ankania Kingdom

Ankania is an old kingdom that formerly a rival to the Zenman Empire. In fact, they are among the oldest kingdoms in the world. They used to be one of the only two empires who ruled the land along with the Zenman. Ankania is located in the south, below Amazail Kingdom and above the Southern Double Alliance (Zuda Kingdom and Kazen Kingdom).

The Ankanian former glory came to an end when the Veronas revolt and attacked the capital, Brinsbourne, then destroyed the Imperial castle and slaughtered the royal family (the Dimakoses). One of the emperor's bloodline eventually fled down to the south and built a new capital called "South Brinsbourne". The loyal officials served him as the new king. This long march killed most of their talented generals and warriors in the effort to fight off the enemy. Some died out of hunger and diseases.

Martia Kingdom

Martia is a nation of war and violence. It's located in the north, above the Zenman Empire and below the Great Desert. The country is torn with warfare and internal conflicts.

The kingdom is led by King Ahmad, son of King Victor the Conqueror, and the military leader: Sir Hogan Guillen, Minister of War.

In common academic schools, children is required to learn military skills, magic and martial-art along with academic skills.

Mother nature rewarded them with riches of metal mines, including the best quality of steel and iron in the world. They have better weapons than any other faction. Most of magical metals and powerful magical weapons that was using in other nations actually came from here. The Martian has made a fortune out of selling metals and weapons.

Zenman Empire

Zenman is the largest and one of the oldest nations in the land. It’s located in the central region. The empire is surrounded by many vassal kingdoms and independent factions.

Each year, the vassal kingdoms must pay a tribute with gifts, weapons, food and gold. Sometime they are required to send princes and princesses to the Zenman.

The Zenman has ruled the land for thousands of year. This country has the largest population and army. Their army is led by Francois de Gaulle, Minister of the Military.

Other than Romanowski, the royal family, there are four powerful noble families that help protected and managed the capital, Zalumi. Those four families are: the Sutherlands, the Pantelakos, the Totens and the Rileys. However, the current emperor, Louis II, son of Emperor Louis the Great, is a young man who some people have described him as a good person, but not a good political leader.
