History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The system is divided into three major power blocs who each control regions of Guru and Delphi. The largest state is the Republic of Arasht, an impersonal bureaucracy headed by a military junta with a poor sophonts rights record. It is opposed by Berengeria and Pavax, two closely allied democracies. Both are technologically advanced but neither is powerful enough to independently face Arasht.

In the 700s the tensions between the three nations began to increase. Informed observers began to predict open warfare. By 1110 the tensions had reached all time highs, with draconian new security measures implemented in all three countries, and all three nations have begun military build-ups and maneuvers along their respective borders.
