Let's Create a World's History

Postby The Federation of Kendor » Thu Jun 15, 2017 4:30 pm

Based on the (now located on Arts and Fictions) Let's Create a Country's History Together game (I create this because like I mentioned earlier, the aforementioned game got moved to Arts and Fictions), basically, you must post on the world history. The current world can be the real world or a fictional world. In addition, two or more timelines can be run on the same time. For example on how to post:

Poster 1:
100 AD: A group pf settlers arrived and form the nation of Jennifer
Poster 2:
105 AD: As the first city grows, a bandit attack happens

However, you can make the time progression varied, from days, to months, to years. In addition, certain events can use the X Year-Y Year format.

Let's start:

100 AD/578 VY: In a fictional world like Earth, a group of 10.000 settlers arrived at the "promised land" across the ocean (in another continent), after their homeland suffered a drought. The land was very fertile, with many animals and plants in it. All of the conditions there were ideal. The settlers soon construct the first city, called Violetstone (and if you don't know VY, basically it's Violet's Year. To make it easier to guess the tech, I will post both the AD and VY, thus making a comparison between the years.)

112 AD/590 VY

The small settlement grows and now has 14,000 people, as more people arrive from the old continent. The leader of the expedition to find the promised land becomes the de facto leader of the settlement as well, and no one is surprised when Stanvers Barry makes himself king of the settlement.

Meanwhile, back in the old continent, the drought continues. Their people don't know this, but this drought is the beginning of a longer-term shift in climate that will make the area less fertile. A war breaks out as several countries fight over the remaining food supply. The Maxtopian Empire nearly unifies the continent, but their armies are called back because their soldiers are needed for farming the newly conquered land and ending the famine that started after the drought. The political situation stabilizes with Maxtopia surrounded by 3 much smaller countries.

130 AD/600-ish VY

The shift in climate change caused the old land to be similar to the Arab Peninsula on our own. Sand as far as the eye can see, the people have to adapt to the new land. This shift causes many troubles for the Maxtopian Empire and it's surroundings.

Meanwhile, back on the settlement, a group of warmongering "people" calling themselves the Fykes found the settlement, and their leader have a short discussion with Stanvers Barry. The fate of the settlement will be dictated by the outcome of this discussion.

(OOC: First, I don't know how to compare VY with AD, and is random things non-NS related allowed? Sorry for my mistakes.)

Adding 1 VY to the VY year also adds 1 AD to the AD year. So 600 VY=122 AD.
607 VY/129 AD:
Stanvers Barry realizes that the Fykes are much more powerful than the small settlement and decides to accept vassalization instead of risking having the settlement fully annexed. Technically, Violetstone is now part of the Fyqitly Empire, but while the Fykes are great with warmongering they're not so good at administration and they mostly leave Violetstone alone, other than occasionally coming along and shouting "PAY YER TRIBUTE!". Things mostly continue like this until, in 607 VY, Stanvers Barry dies, leaving a power vacuum. How this power vacuum ends can be decided by the next poster.
Meanwhile, as more people flee the new conditions of the old continent, the population of Violetstone increases to 22,000. Famines and rioting are the new normal in the old continent (now called Violetium). A mob of starving peasants successfully storms the capital of the Maxtopian Empire and take its food supply that was originally reserved for nobles, but the leader of Maxtopia escapes and sends an army back to crush the rebellion.

613 VY/135 AD

The late Stanvers Barry was replaced by a leader known as Samuel Sarin. The leader himself is very much under the Fykes' influence, but he only looks conforming to them. Samuel is a moderate and knows full well, he can't beat the Fykes. An unknown, large force is seen on the horizons of the Fyqitlian Empire. Is this an invasion? The next poster will decide.

About Maxtopia, the people are handling it pretty well now. Maxtopia is now reliant on a massive river called Vio, which now waters their entire food supply. Some of the refugees still aren't going to return. Some.

614 VY/135 AD

The fleet landed on the port of Fyqitlian Empire's capital city, Fyqit. The fleet soon revealed itself as belonging to a third continent, called Faradan. The nation where the ship came from was called the Generll Empire, being a large empire on it's own continent (and Roman and Chinese-esque cultures, though there are some original bits). The fleet is a large exploration fleet, with the warships being used to defend the exploration, and trade ships.

Meanwhile, Violetstone continues to grow, with it's population growing to 24.000. The leader, Samuel Sarin, turns out to be a wise and charismatic leader. He lead a huge project, aimed at developing Violetstone into a more better and larger city.

614-618 VY/135-139 AD

The Generll Empire, being quite an autocratic nation, decided to trade with the Fyqitlian Empire. After four years, the Generll Empire's nemesis, the Jouros Empire (a combination of German and British cultures), attacked the Generll Empire. The leader of the Fyqitlian Empire is alone, thinking... should the Fyqitlian Empire join in the war? With who? The next poster will decide the outcome.

Meanwhile, Violetstone grew larger over time, and there is 40.000 people in Violetstone now. Life is pretty good there in Violetstone.

The old Maxtopian Empire is starting to explore the seas too, and it's only a matter of time until they find Violetstone and the other three empires.

618 VY-620 VY/139 AD-141 AD

What started as a war between the Jouros Empire, Generll Empire, Fyqitlian Empire spirals into a war dragging all nations of the three knowed continent. Meanwhile, Maxtopia's another exploration fleet discovers a fourth continent to the north of it (in the size of Australia).

Meanwhile, Violetstone become neutral in the war, though it mainly supports the Fyqitlian Empire. As the war happens, Violetstone developed it's resource extraction, industry, and defense. They traded weapons, foods, and ores to the Fyqitlian Empire. Some mercenaries also peovided their service. Meanwhile, the Violetstone scientists started to research weaponry

143 AD/622 VY
The war continues with harsh casualties for all participants. All three empires manage to kill large amounts of their manpower base via sea warfare, odd as that sounds. For Violetstone, however, a weaker Fyqitlian empire, combined with Violetstone assistance in the war, means a slackening grip and greater autonomy. Violetstone's population increases as draft-dodgers and deserters, all trying to escape the meat-grinder of a war in the East, and Violetstone exercises trade and production power beyond what their size and vassal-status would allow.

Violetstone-Fyqitlian relations resemble that of a renaissance HRE Free City and the noble owning the land that the city stands on: Violetstone only listens to Fyqitlian demands out of courtesy and not wanting an trouble, rather than codified obligation. Unknown if this relationship will continue after the war, or if the empire will crack down.

Weapon research ongoing since I'm not imaginative enough for that.

144 AD/623 VY

The war ended. Treaty of Arzum was signed. Jouros lost 2/3 of it's previous lands, Fyqitlian Empire and Generll Empire then divided the conquered land, the Generll Empire took the biggest hit, and was given the most plentiful and biggest chunks of land. Fyqitlian Empire is given the rest, but the war's pyrrhic outcome is just too big to swallow for all three.

Jouros fell into anarchy, and a nation named Kalios appear from it's ruins. Kalios soon re-established order, and reunited the warring Jourosians. Generll is having do with lots of major revolutions. Fyqitly is crumbling apart. Violetstone took the chance and immediately taken large chunks of territory, and since Fyqitly isn't capable to stop it, rebellions occur, and the Generll and Fyqitly are trying their best to crack them down.

Religions, particularly Violetism, is getting popular. Weapons are getting produced en masse, and Violetstone is trying to bite as much as it can swallow from the dying Fyqitlian Empire. A weapon that was found by the people of Violetstone was the Viocurv and Viodart, a weapon that works like bows and arrows.

145 AD/624 VY

From the ruins of Fyqitlian Empire, many new nations emerged. However, they are constantly warring with each other, resulting in many deaths. The people of the former Fyqitlian empire, from all classes, from the poorest to the richest, fled to the city of Violetstone, increasing it's population to 74.000. This cause the city to expand. In addition, Violetstone is not a city sate anymore, but a nation. Also, some warring factions of former Fyqitlian decided to join the nation of Violetstone as a part of it, increasing it's territories

In Generll, the nation collapsed from the revolution, and got absorbed to Kalios (former Jouros and a part of it which have Greek-esque culture). This cause many more refugees to flee to both Violetstone and Maxtopia. By this time, Violetstone and Maxtopia has taken a Byzantine and Arab like role in keeping the old cultures and knowledges of all three major empires alive, and mixing it with their own. In addition, the new settlement formed by Maxtopia in the fourth continent get inhabited by those refugees, as well as some immigrants and colonists.

A new branch of religion occured. Called Scientific Violetism, it's a branch of Violetism the focused on discovering the truth of the world and bettering people's live through science, though they are still a religion because they still look to the Gods. Meanwhile, an accident led to the discovery of the gunpowder, when saltpeter, sulphur, and carbon get mixed and led to an explosion. The gunpowder was discovered from the discovery of the cause of the accident. An inventor then thinked that the powder can be used for making firework and explosives

151 AD/ 630 VY
A lot has changed in the past few years: the warring states have mostly calmed down, yet tensions are rising steadily again. For both Violetstone and Maxtopia, the peace has allowed the two nations to stabilize and consolidate their gains. The successor states of the Fyqitlian empire have mostly hunkered down in their fortresses, and the constant grinding sieges were a large reason for the prevailing peace.

Jouros is strangely holding together, with a mix of political power via directed violence, and economic power as Jouros has managed to stabilize its food supply, and holds the states of Generll hostage with food shipments. They have also begun aligning themselves with the former political and economic elite of Generll. Although still shaky, if nothing is done soon, Jouros might manage to solidify its hold on Generll.

Gunpower weapons have advanced steadily, going from explosions and fireworks to crude cannons and bombards. Even the worse cannon can send metal balls hurtling with enough speed to destroy a fortress wall, and Violetstone's failure to keep gunpower secret (Sale of fireworks) threatens to plunge the continent back into war. Violetstone is the only nation to have cannons so far, but the other splinter states aren't far behind. If the war isn't handled properly or spirals out of control, the already weakened continent might regress technologically and societally.

(Not sure if this is too advanced or nah)

(Maybe some experimental gunpowder is fine but 1. making it exist in 150 AD and 2. going from ooh what's this explosion? to cannons in 6 years is too advanced. In IRL gunpowder was invented in the 9th century, the first written records of a chemical formula for it are from the 11th, and cannons did not become widespread in Europe until the 15th century.)
155 AD/634 VY: Samuel Sarin dies at the worst possible time, 632 VY. Due to the lack of a proper procedure for who becomes the new ruler of Violetstone when the previous one dies, the city is plunged into anarchy before a prominent government official, Gustav Carlen, becomes "regent" after being chosen as a compromise between the various factions. It seems like a civil war has been averted...but everyone knows that he is incompetent and corrupt and only a temporary balance of power between various factions is keeping Violetstone intact.

Meanwhile, the situation in Generll is getting worse for Kalios as the various warring states make deals to unite against their old enemy. Violetstone gets rich by supplying food to the anti-Kalios states and factions in Generll after they lose their food shipments from Kalios, but skirmishes soon begin at sea after Kalios blockades Generll to prevent the food shipments. Violetstone and Kalios are now in an undeclared war.

The situation in the rest of Fyqitly is starting to stabilize. The 3 major remaining nations are the Holy Ryfekti Empire, the Second Fyqitly Empire, the Kingdom of Lafkemi, and the Union of Reri-Falvan. The Holy Ryfekti Empire was created after Ryfektist (the main religion of the Fykes) religious leaders attempted to seize power, the Second Fyqitly Empire is a remnant of the first and is the only major faction still under the original ruling dynasty of Fyqitly, the Kingdom of Lafkemi is led by one of Fyqitly's former generals, and the Union of Reri-Falvan was formed after two ethnic groups oppressed by the Fykes rebelled and decided to ally with each other due to their common enemy, the other 3 factions who all want to restore Fyke rule to the Union. Violetstone is mostly ignored as "that random trading city state with a tiny population (the population of each faction is in the millions, while the population of Violetstone is just reaching 100,000) and that's stuck in internal turmoil, we have bigger problems".

(Alright. Didn't know how much bearing the year had on tech. Also I just realized I've been mistaking Jouros with Kalios, or something. Anyway, scratch the cannon stuff.)

157 AD/ 636 VY
Carlen manages to stabilize his reign for the moment, through the appointment of competent advisors and supporters. Of course, the civil war threatens to break out again as partisanship and court factionalism arise, mostly because everyone is fed up by Carlen's incompetence. Carlen also delays the codification of any succession laws, probably to appoint his own successor or arrange a law legitimizing his rise to power. Carlen plans to ally with a foreign power to further cement his power, but it is unsure if he will live long enough for that.

Generll rebels and guerillas kill political and economic elites aligned with Kalios methodically, steadily dismantling support networks that Kalios needed to maintain their rule. Kalios officials debate whether to continue their efforts to consolidate their rule, or to simply pull out of the continent and stop shipping food, which would cause a famine that threatens to set the continent back decades. Generll rebels in the know collectively panic and scurry to somehow make up the food supplies of several hundred thousand farmers. Overtures are made to Maxtopia, but things could go either way.

The three Fyqitly successors and the union of Reri-Falvan engage in low level skirmishes and raids, to probe each other. This, surprisingly, causes just as many refugees as a straight-up war would, as the violence in the countryside destroys hundreds of villages and starves the cities, while a war would probably mean a several pitched battles and armies settling in for long sieges.

Anyhow, Violetstone profits handsomely from the war, as the population swells to 120,000 in only two years. The sudden glut of refugees threatens to overwhelm the nation's food supplies, however, and Violetstone's otherwise widespread trade networks come up short on food, considering both Fyqitly and Generll are strapped as is.
