Farmers Town Underground Army
In the year 749 of the Eran Calendar, the Black Crystal Energy Leakage left inhabitants near the tower with no choice but migration far away from their homeland. They headed southeastward and eventually settled down in a town named Farmers Town.
The townsman appealed to Haye Nation to cease operations of the Black Crystal Tower, but it was all in vain. To prevent history from repeating itself, they nominated Carlman of the Riemann Family as leader of the Underground Army to oppose the Government's continued usage of the Black Crystal.
Those victims who lost their homes in the Black Crystal Leakage, together with citizens of the weaker villages and towns oppressed by the Haye Nation were none too pleased with the Government's selfish behaviors. Hence, they expressed their support for Carlman and the Undergound Army. Despite lacking in natural resources, Farmers Town's ideals and beliefs attracted many followers, many of whom either enlisted in the Underground Army or helped with the development of the town.
The Donkey, Sheep and Seal races make up the majority of the population. Their cheerful and hardworking character has become integral to making Farmers Town become a self-sustainable town in their continuing fight against the Government.
Haye Nation is located in the prosperous and beautiful land of Liberon. Many years ago, an energy shortage crisis nearly destroyed the civilization of Liberon. Fortunately, a scientist from the Ribbit Tribe – Professor Riemann managed to avert the crisis by proposing the theory of mining the energy from Black Crystals, eventually leading to the construction of the Black Crystal Tower. This new energy source allowed the Ribbit Tribe to advance their technology rapidly, eventually forming the current Haye Nation, greatest Nation of the East Eran.
As the nation expanded, the need for energy also grew. In a bid to ensure sufficient levels of energy supply, the government increased the workload of the Black Crystal Tower beyond its normal operation capacity. Eventually, the energy tower exploded and contaminated the lands. The Black Crystal Leakage affected the entire region, including the land and water source. The agricultural lands, plants and even animals started to mutate.
Left with no choice, the citizens migrated to other areas while the area where the Black Crystal Tower resided became a ghost town and renamed as the "Black Fog Canyon". To prevent the risk of contamination, the Government also shifted its capital – Haye City to the Northeastern region of Liberon.
Despite all that had happened, the Government did not learn their lessons and persisted in the use of the Black Crystal. Believing that the Black Crystal was essential for Haye to maintain their status as a powerful nation, the Government ignored any objections towards its continued usage.
Haye Nation comprises mostly of Ribbits. They are poised, intelligent, and possess high levels of technological knowledge.
As years went by and battles rages on between the Underground Army and the Government, Carlman felt that something needs to be done in order to stop this stalemate and reduce the number of casualties.
He then went out in search for a greener pasture of land so that they can provide new recruits with a better place and equipments to hone their skills. As he searched on with his trusty companions, he came across a plot of land near the sea. It was full of life and potential that it immediately struck him that this is the perfect place.
Not too long after, trying to keep as low profile as they could, the Underground Army began building up barracks after barracks and hired many skilled mercenaries. Within 6 months, the entire camp was set up and Carlman named it Ammonite Port.
Today, it stands as an important starting point for those who wishes to join his legion of army. And together with their stronghold in Farmer's Town, they began a new expedition against the Government.
To the east of Liberon lies Maple Valley, named after the abundance of maple trees found in the area. The White Wolf Tribe was the first resident of Maple Valley. Unlike neighboring Liberon, Maple Valley's unfavorable terrains and lack of natural resources resulted in the tribe resorting to robbing merchants as a way of life.
After the rise of the Haye Nation, the White Wolf Tribe invaded the neighboring Hunchbacked Horse Tribe to wrest control of the key transportation line. While passing through Maple Valley, the prince of the tribe – Black Maple Candy.Loukersvile was captured and imprisoned by the White Wolf Tribe. At the same time, a sudden epidemic soon spread throughout the White Wolf Tribe. In using his ancestral medical skills to rescue the entire White Wolf Tribe, Prince Loukersvile also paved the way for a peaceful co-existence for both tribes. These two tribes eventually merged to form a new nation, Zajac Park, under the leadership of Loukersvile.
The addition of the Hunchbacked Horse tribe has brought a wealth of technology and knowledge to Maple Valley, vastly improving the agricultural and manufacturing capabilities of the valley. Prince Loukersvile also discovered a way to make Maple Trees into local specialties – Dye, Syrup and Maple Candy. Discovering that Maple Candies made in the Maple Valley is not only delicious but also highly nutritious, Prince Loukersvile tries to improve the economy of Maple Valley by exporting them to other regions.
Currently, Haye Nation controls the only trade route in the area. Dismissing the residents of Maple Valley as being unreasonable and greedy barbarians, Haye Nation set up many checkpoints along the trade route to extort trade fees and taxes on their exports. This is in addition to the large amount of annual fees that Zajac is currently paying for the continued usage of the trade route.
Angered by Haye Nation's harsh demands, Prince Loukersvile decided to bypass the regular trade route by buying and constructing a free port between Maple Valley and Galactia Port, north of Ammonite Park.
Maple Valley has a dry climate with sparse vegetation, with their inhabitants living in tents or houses made from dried soil.
Randall Castle is a snow-covered country in the northern region inhabited by the Magical Iceman Clan. The global warming caused by the Black Crystal explosion melted the glaciers. This in turn unleashed the ancient frozen beasts upon Randall. Viewing Haye Nation as the cause of this disaster, Randall then went to war, with Randall defeated. Disgruntled with their loss, Randall Castle has started their preparations for another war by aggressively recruiting a large number of army personnel and purchase of weapons.
The Randall society is governed by a unique combination of the primitive magical system and military style management. Before the Black Crystal Explosion, the Randallions' feelings of superiority due to their talents in magic made them isolate themselves from the rest of the world. After tasting defeat in the first war against Haye Nation, they tried to conceal their frustrations by becoming extremely competitive, with an even more aloof and arrogant outlook. Generally, visitors to Randall find the Randallions difficult to live with.
In order to build up their army in the shortest time, Randall is putting up generous sums money to attract and recruit mercenaries and resources. Hence, despite the conceited nature of the Randallions, immigrants from other nations are still flocking to Randall Castle rapidly. Opening their trade route for only one season of a year, Randall Castle forces visitors to travel by air for the other three seasons.
Oslan Fort was Randall Castle's outpost that Haye Nation successfully conquered during the first war that resulted from the Black Crystal explosion. However, the military forces stationed at Oslan Fort were later recalled back to Haye Nation to deal with the uprising of the Farmers Town Underground Army.
Defeated during the first war, Randall Castle was determined to seek revenge on the Haye Nation by building up the strength of their army. Hence, they abandoned the idea of reclaiming Oslan Fort.
Oslan Fort then became a neutral area under the jurisdiction of neither Randall nor Haye Nation.
Spectacularly built on Randall Highlands, Oslan Fort consists of 99 levels. The unique structure of the Fort attracted the interest of a tycoon called Feather Firearm. Somule, who then invested a huge sum of money to re-create it into an arena. A noble descendant of military officer, Somule is highly enthusiastic towards arena battles. Not only does he like to watch the battles, he also hires a group of professional fighters and trainers to groom talented participants. Under the management of Somule, Oslan Fort soon became the most popular arena where countless adventurers bring their pets to train and gain experience.
