Brikwars Current Events/Canon Summary

Postby Colette » Fri Feb 21, 2014 11:19 pm

It has been brought to my attention that many newbies are overwhelmed or intimidated by the volume of pre-existing canon on the brikwars forums. For this reason I have compiled a distilled summary of Brikwars lore with an increasing emphasis on more recent events.

Brikwars Lore Primer wrote:Many years ago, the Immortal Empire invaded the Gamma Corps homeworld, Fico, thus sparking the Immortal War. Alliances formed, with the trade-heavy Britannian League allying with the Immortals while the Assyrian Star Empire and the USA joined forces with the Great Scythian Empire, the ringleader of an Anti-Immortal Alliance, and other smaller nations chose sides as well. Thanks to their efforts, the Immortal War has slowed greatly and the main frontlines have been contained to superpower borders for now (read Scythe’s stories for more on this).

This brings us to the Third Alliance (TA), founded by the Bavarian kaiser Otto the Rebuilder and backed by the disgruntled former Immortal ally, the Akkadian Empire. This neo-German alliance sought their own path of conquest in the brikverse independent of the two established sides. Around this time, the Trattorian Empire began revitalizing interest in the Allied Nations (AN).

Rogue elements within the Avalonian Empire sent out counterfeit diplomatic communiqués which resulted in the exodus of many TA nations from the AN, prompting several fervent AN-supporters such as Trattoria, Praetoria, and the MASS to declare war on the TA. A coup in Trattoria overthrew the president and installed pro-TA dictator Siri, causing the AN to lose one of its main troop and navy suppliers. They fought many battles, but ultimately the AN lost when the planet New York was taken in a surprise blitzkrieg launched by the TA.

Months later, the Praetorian Empire had constructed the then-largest ever dreadnought, the Inexorable, and launched an offensive to retake New York. The USA and Scythia also united against the TA, and won the Second Battle of New York. The AN-TA war began again, and Trattoria regained a pro-AN, democratic president after the assassination of Siri, thus strengthening the neu-AN forces. Now the neu-AN forces are gathering to launch an assault on Bavaria’s homeworld, thus subjugating the empire and silencing the last active backer of the TA.

If any member feels that this summary has become out-of-date or is in need of update, please comment or pm me.

As a note to newbies, this should not be construed as a restriction of any sort. Quite the contrary, this canon was created as a collaborative effort between many members, and we encourage you to do the same. Your unique contributions in the present will likely be incorporated into a future version of the summary. You don't even have to participate in it, but I have created this resource due to popular demand from those who want to.
