The Trade Empire
Long ago on the continent of Abo, two empires came face to face with one another. The powerful Roman like Alera Empire and the brutal Mongolian like Tema Empire battled for years over the the Great Stone Mountains. Then is 23 BTE, the Tema soldier had invented a exploding material, back powder, soon the fire lance and dragon pistol were soon to follow into battle.
Months later, the battle of Crimson Pass was fought, and the outcome was a draw. The emperors of these immortal empires formed a pact to open peaceful trade with one another, and 15 years later, they united through marriage, as the Alera Princess and the Tema Prince became the first co-emperors, though their fathers could never see eye to eye about witch empire would rule the other.
In a heated argument, the former Khan, or Tema Emperor killed the Caesar, or Alera Emperor, and confessed his actions to his son the Khan. The Khan’s father was sentenced to death by firing squad, and took on the title of Caesar Khan after his wife’s death in child-birth in the year 3 TE, marking the final action to unite the two empires into the super-empire it is today.
The Trade Empires Colonies can be found allover the globe, the small pockets of still free islands of Abo, and on the coasts of the continent of Cyda. Because of this, Trade influence can be found anywhere, and is seen as either progress or the coming end to the more traditional tribal life style.
