History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The huge strike of lanthanum in 1111 produced a land rush.

Era: New Era[edit]

Bael is divided between rival mining corps, Regency, Zhodani and others. Even a couple of Aslan corps have a presence here. Baelians are fantastically rich, but have recognized that the Lanthanum wealth will eventually run out, and are providing for the world's future by investment in improved infrastructure and education.
