Shard of a Perfect World
The Realm is one of the greatest empires in the history of creation, but now it stands on the brink of civil war. The Great Houses now vie for control and there are many who wish to be the next Scarlet Empress. The chief contenders at the moment are Mnemon and Roseblack .
The Realm rules primarily through Satrap’s and is nominally controlled by The Regent. In truth The Regent does very little and The Deliberate, a group of legislators once selected by the empress and now selected by themselves.
The Realm and the out-lands beyond it can be loosely categorized by the four cardinal directions and the elements associated with them; Air in The North lands, Water in The West, Fire in The South, and Wood in The East.
