(OC) Imperium (temporary title)

Post  Sir Alexander Beathen on Thu May 18, 2017 3:29 pm

Imperium
"Rule Britannia, Britannia once ruled the waves and Britons shall always be slaves."
 - Anti-British chant

Two hundred years since the collapse of the Catholic church, the Enlightened Union now dominates the world suppressing religious beliefs and magical institutions that aren't mandated. Pushing societies and cultures to which had once controlled the advancement of humanity to the brink of extinction and then isolated to a collection of nations at the corner of Europe. Realising that what remains had to be kept around to keep unknown forces in check, the United Kingdoms which consists of Britain, Ireland, Iceland and Norway lives an uneasy peace at the heel of the Union since 1956. However, with the recent tide of misfortune plaguing the world and old hatreds resurfacing as a response, it's either honour or death for the once beating heart of the largest empire in history.

Enlightened Union

Post  Sir Alexander Beathen on Thu May 18, 2017 3:33 pm

The Enlightened Union is a collection of nation-states around the world that believes in globalisation, free trade and the advancement of creative arts and science. Its fundamental belief remains to be freeing humanity from the shackles of religious and magical tyranny which was fulfilled with absolute brutality. However, following the London Act of 1956, the policy of necessary tolerance had been adapted due to individual incidents of mysterious origin not being able to be combated by scientific advancement and remains to be suppressed by the forces of the United Kingdoms.

Originally founded on the Italian peninsula after the collapse of the Catholic church; it was formally a name given to the Italian states in one union. But upon Prussia's joining in 1904, it was adopted to cover the reformed Italian Republic and Germanic Empire. In its early years, the union focused on nothing but hindering religious and magical activity in Europe. However, its rise to power came after the industrial revolution lead by the British Empire. With the sudden advancement of technology, the Union learned significantly from this experience and helped further technology along on the back of the growing Germanic power in Europe.

It would later fight in the 'Great War' and would mastermind 'The Great Betrayal' which saw the USA joining the collection of nations after betraying the British forces leading to the collapse of their Empire. What followed was an Era of magical and religious purges along with the expansion of the union. By 1956 when the 'Malta Crisis' occurred the Enlightened Union influenced the entire world. But that same year showed the limitations of science when dealing with incidents with mysterious and magical origin. Bringing about the British question and lead to the London-Malta Act of 1956 which was signed by the remaining members of the British Royal family and the representatives of the nation leaders in the Enlightened Union.

This saw the establishment of the United Kingdoms and the state of affairs in the modern world.

United Kingdoms

Post  Sir Alexander Beathen on Thu May 18, 2017 3:35 pm

Is a nation state formed upon the London-Malta Act of 1956 which was established to solve the British Question and future incidents similar to the one on Malta. It is the Union of Great Britain, Ireland, Iceland and Norway under the British Crown.

It traded service for their continued survival. And while the act has convinced many that the United Kingdoms was free from control, the Enlightened Union kept its grip on British Royal family which serves a puppet in all but name.

The United Kingdoms have no airforce or navy and the only military capable force 'The Knights of Garter' serve as the police for the state and also the response force to magical incidents outside the country which the Union can't solve.

Despite being influenced by the Union, the Royal family acts in similar fashion to its predecessor state. The Country is allowed its government but remains politically unstable due to the many factions formed by refugees from former magical nations and religious groups. Though for any policy that seeks being established into law needs to be signed by the royal family and they have been given the right to refuse.

The right of refusal often causes further political instability and paralysing the politics in the Kingdom. A situation some believed to be purposefully engineered by the Union.

The act also allowed the establishment of Inquisition bases which serves the union and acts upon persecuting what is deemed threats to the established order. With political instability, isolation and tensions rising with certain groups blaming the recent tide of misfortune on the United Kingdoms, the tipping point is fast approaching.

The Great Betrayal

Post  Sir Alexander Beathen on Thu May 18, 2017 3:37 pm

The Great War ended with a white peace, but renewed hostilities arose after the collapse of the French Republic in 1920 due to political instability. What followed was the immediate invasion of France from both the Germanic Empire and the Italian Republic. Fearing purges on French soil, the British Empire jumped to their lost allies defence, and the hostilities of the Great War seemed to have resumed.

Seeking help from the USA, surprisingly they answered the call and soon American forces and navy was sent to the UK for a joint operation. But what was seen as allies was nothing but a Trojan horse as once the American forces arrived they quickly took advantage overwhelming the home defence and forcing the UK to surrender. With the British isolated from their Empire and the Royal Navy usurped by American forces, the British Empire collapsed in a matter of months.

Not long after the USA joined the Enlightened Union and the British was left isolated and imprisoned in their home islands. While guerrilla fighting did occur, no policy of purges took place on British soil as sympathy for the nation that brought about the industrial revolution was strong. This lead to the British Question about how to deal with them which remain unanswered until 1956.

Malta Crisis

Post  Sir Alexander Beathen on Thu May 18, 2017 3:38 pm

The Malta Crisis was an incident that saw the population of over 300,000 being massacred by a single monstrous creature known as the 'Garitia'. These creatures long believed to be fantasy by those in the Enlightened Union, had forced them to accept not all that occurs on Earth can be solved by them and saw the creation of the London Act.

The Garitia that caused this disaster was never killed or captured and just vanished. This led to Malta being blockaded, and only military personal and Knights of Garter are allowed on the island.

Garitia

Post  Sir Alexander Beathen on Thu May 18, 2017 3:39 pm

Are monstrous creatures that bring great disaster and misfortune often rarely appearing in human history. With tar black skin and hot to the touch, they're the size of large tanks and possess immense strength. Their main aspect is they can weaken those they come in contact with, or what the Knights of Garter called 'feasting on the life energy of humans', and specifically magical energy which is created by humans.

By absorbing magic, the Garitia grows in strength and size. It was an enormous Garitia that towered over houses which caused the Malta Crisis which appeared and vanished without a trace.

They're often easy to deal with when effectively hunting them away from human populations, and the Knights of Garter are actively pursuing them in the world's most remote places.

Often solitude creatures they wander the world alone and have never been recorded to be with other creatures of its kind. How they're created or reproduced remains unknown to this day.
