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 (led by Warhead) invaded the Gamma Corps homeworld, Fico, thus sparking the Immortal War. Alliances formed, with the trade-heavy Britannian League allying with the Immortal Alliance 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).

The Third Alliance (TA) was then founded by the Bavarian kaiser Otto von Bavaria and backed by the disgruntled former Immortal ally, the Akkadian Empire. The RIN also joined and had power struggles with Bavaria. This neo-German alliance sought their own path of conquest in the brikverse independent of the two established sides. Around this time, Trattoria began revitalizing interest in the Allied Nations (AN).

Rogue elements within the Kingdom of Avalon 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 (the AN-TA War). They fought many battles, but ultimately the AN lost when the planet New York was taken in a surprise blitzkrieg launched by the TA. The Space Mafia then took over the TA underworld and have grown larger to this day. Months later, the Praetorian Empire 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. The neu-AN banded together into NATO and resolved to silence the Third Alliance once and for all by invading Bavaria, its last active backer.

The Denmark-Empryan war (aka the N00b War) erupted between the egalitarian Denmark and the anti-peach Emprya. The Phaleks and Emeria joined Emprya and formed the PEE Alliance, which then became EPÉEN. Bavaria entered the war in Denmark's defense, and the Trattorians declared war on Emprya until the latter complied with Trattoria's patent laws. After the Invasion of the Danish homeworld Mark, the war ended with the Space Mafia takeover of Emeria


Members interested in medieval Brikwars should look here.

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.

Spoiler: show
CHANGELOG:
-Added wiki link to Otto von Bavaria
-Added N00b War and wiki links
-Got rid of the bits about Trattoria and Siri in the interest of brevity, added sentence about Space Mafia
-Added link to Medivo Battles wiki page
-Added mention of Warhead.
-Added end of Denmark-Empryan War and the ISM takeover of Emeria

What follows is a quick rundown of some of the important factions mentioned in the summary above:

Spoiler: show
Akkadian Empire (piltogg):
Image
Allegiance: Third Alliance
The Akkadian "Empire" constitutes one of the most organised special operations units in the galaxy, conducting research, espionage, and other shady operations from their massive spaceship home, the Juggernaught.

Assyrian Star Empire (Natalya):
Image
Allegiance: Anti-Immortal Alliance
Possessing one of the most powerful armed forces in the brikverse, the Assyrian Star Empire is almost solely dedicated to the cause of exterminating Peaches from the galaxy.

Britannian League (Warhead, Theblackdog, Silverdream, White Nun)
Image
Allegiance: Immortal Alliance
A vast lumbering empire in decline but still full of it's glory and pomp and ceremony, the Britannian League possesses an enormous but outdated navy, and its economy has grown tremendously due to its control of the brikverse's most lucrative trade routes.

Der Reich Von Bavaria (Silverdream):
Image
Allegiance: Third Alliance
Despite it's small size, Bavaria has enjoyed a considerable amount of influence on the brikverse through a strong military, subterfuge and advanced magik.

Gamma Corps (Elmagnifico)
Image
Allegiance: Anti-Immortal Alliance
The Gamma Corps is a well-known mercenary force, renowned for its prowess in planetary defense and hit-and-run strikes, as well as being the first to fall to the Immortal Empire

Great Scythian Empire (The Shadowscythe)
Image
Allegiance: Anti-Immortal Alliance
The Great Scythian Empire is one of the largest superpowers in the galaxy, the spearhead and founder of the Anti-Immortal Alliance, and extremely well-versed in the technology of antimatter.

Immortal Empire (Warhead):
Image
Allegiance: Immortal Alliance
An extraordinarily powerful intergalactic dominion ruled by the regenerative, undying Immortals, the Immortal Empire's entrance into the brikverse sparked the years-long Immortal War and permanently shifted galactic politics.

Praetorian Empire (dilanski):
Image
Allegiance: Anti-Immortal Alliance
An empire originating from another galaxy, the Praetorian Empire has mastered intergalactic travel and takes pride in having one of the largest navies in the brikverse.

Republic of Independent Nations (aka RIN) (Robot Monkey):
Image
Allegiance: Third Alliance
The RIN was an early entry into the Third Alliance, playing a major role in the organization's politics as well as mastering the exploitation of red-transparent.

Trattorian Empire (colette):
Image
Allegiance: Anti-Immortal Alliance
One of the most scientifically-advanced and economically-prosperous nations in the brikverse, the Trattorian Empire offers utopian standard of living to its more intellectual citizens and is unique in its constant advocacy of economic growth over military strength.

United Systems Alliance (silent sigfig):
Image
Allegiance: Anti-Immortal Alliance
The largest economy in the brikverse, the USA's democratic government has historically taken an isolationist stance on the brikverse with the threat of its ten carrier groups discouraging direct attack.

Robot Monkey has expressed his unwillingness to return to the forums via minecraft (he despises Silverdream, hint hint), and the RIN should perhaps find a new, loving owner.

Robot_Monkey delegated control of the RIN to me until his return. If that period may be indefinite, then so be it.

However long it lasts, of course.

There's criteria to be a Superpower? That seems odd.
