Throughout the history of the Galaxy, a number of civilisations ruled over a portion large enough to encompass much of its area.

(First) Celestial Empire/Eimaranda Empire[]

See also: Celestial Age for prior events, First Age

The Eimares were the earliest civilisation in the universe, and the first to rule over most of the Galaxy. It collapsed as it was split between two factions, the magical Hjokkunzar and the mechanical Thamunzar.

It was also when the Vigefionians (Gweudetonians) and Imdegabat (then known as Nabenans) came into existence.

A group of Celestials protected the planet Novantir and its inhabitants from being enslaved by other Celestials, and also taught them to become a civilisation. These Celestials are later worshipped as gods in Novantirna mythology.

First Galactic Empire[]

See also: Second Age

The Anevondir -- a pale humanoid race -- exterminated the Celestials, but quickly fell into chaos with the death of its founding emperor. It forbade any form of religion, but worshipped its Jellyfish Emperors.

It was known as the "first" of the Galactic Empires as it was the first of those ruled by mortals, not powerful beings like Celestials.

During that era, the first true humans, the Londurilli, established colonies at the galactic northwest and centre-south.

The Anevondir attempted to invade Jerde, but were repelled. Since their defeat, storms have surrounded Jerde's star system, isolating it from any future invaders.

Second Galactic Empire[]

This empire, an Nabenan empire, was broken by factionalism and warlords.

At the start of this empire's era, the Celestials and the first mortal king of their civilisation, Druvara, returned to their home dimension from Novantir (then known as Sadřavan). Afterwards, the forces of Sadřavan spread throughout the Galaxy, to the extent that its stability made some historians classify it as the Second Galactic Empire instead of the volatile Nabenan civilisation.

Third to Fourth Empires[]

These Galactic Empires were ruled by successive dynasties of Anevondir emperors, who later became the Rynvants.

At the Third Age, the tribal king Saneron founded the Igarin civilisation at his homeworld of Gausari. After his death, he was worshipped as a sun god, and his kingdom of Ösalker waged war against the Nabenan civilisation of Kumarum to plunder its riches.

The few aliens that managed to get past the storms surrounding Jerde's solar system returned with reports that the planet appeared to "bleed".

Fifth Galactic Empire[]

During the Fifth Galactic Empire, the Nabenan civilisation was known as the Kuramerum. The Fifth Galactic Empire was known as the Rynavont Domain, notorious for its cannibalism; its rivals included the human Londuril kingdoms of the northwest, Kuramerum in the north, and Čarvasari to the east.

Londuril consisted of a league of powerful kingdoms (and a few republics) populated mostly by humans. These realms were known for their elaborate funerary rites and their usage of electricity as a sacred weapon of their main god, Terakhon.

Kuramerum dominated the galactic north, establishing a network of colonies and tributaries across hundreds of star systems. They were known for their gold-plated spacecraft and vehicles.

To the east, Čarvasari became a galactic power as its gods permitted its kings to send their fleets beyond their domain to build their empire. Using their preserved knowledge, they either rebuilt ruined Celestial Gates, or constructed new ones on crossroads for their fleets to quickly navigate the Galaxy. They also contacted other civilisations and shared their knowledge of Celestial technology, such as with Vigefion and the Nagiruge kingdoms.

At around the Fifth Galactic Empire, the Nagiruge have constructed the first Celestial Gates since the extermination of the Celestials ages ago, and used them to quickly navigate across the Galaxy to explore it. However, one of these portals unleashed armies of Celestials, who sought to establish a second Celestial Empire to dominate the mortals of the Galaxy. This led to wars between the decaying Rynavonts, the growing Carvasari, and the vengeful Celestials. But in this three-way galactic war, the human Freyrgardians kept winning and taking the spoils.

Several aliens, especially the cannibalistic Rynavonts, managed to get past the storms and raid Freyrgard's people as livestock: instead, the captured humans multiplied into a ferocious horde. The humans also multiplied via cloning, building formidable armies of raiders and saboteurs that carved their own bloody dominions in the central Galaxy. The resulting chaos fuelled the other galactic powers, who took in the thousands of refugees that fled from the Rynavonts' savagery and the humans' wrath. These humans later formed a federation of monarchies, the Bond of Vengeance.

Three centuries after the war against the Rynavonts, two warlords attempted to turn every Freyrgardian into having either yellow or red hair. The resulting war, the "Hair Wars", was later regarded by the Galaxy' historians as "the most stupid and pointless war of all time".

During that time, Valgeta was colonised. After several centuries of feeding its people to the remaining Anevondir, it was unified under a matriarchy. Its empire either waged wars against the other civilisations to expand its dominion and create more hive colonies, or seduced the flimsier human Freyrgardians to produce their hybrids, who in turn betrayed their kin.

Sixth Galactic Empire[]

The Sixth Galactic Empire consisted of three (or eight) human-ruled civilisations. The earliest of these human civilisations, Vargaxal, defeated the Fifth Galactic Empire by razing its capital and slaughtering its emperors. The Vargaxal were once a kingdom of Freyrgardians who were empowered by technology stolen from slain Celestials.

Some Valgetan fleets invaded other worlds to kill and eat the inhabitants, and among those cannibalistic domains were the despots of Xarmal, Xormais, and Orxila, who hunted for humans to devour. One kingdom of exiles of mixed Freyrgardian-Londurilli descent, the Armasols, defeated the despots and enslaved their beasts, ending the Valgetan cannibals' threat in the northwestern Galaxy. The Armasols became the last stage of the Sixth Galactic Empire.

At the same time, other planets were colonised by other clones of the Vigefionians and runaway clones, infesting the norther Galaxy with their bizarre tyrannies.

Four Valgetan Princesses - Elurix, Tranderix, Gardax, and Alvia - invaded Gausari and founded twenty-seven cities on the planet. They waged wars to conquer the planet until they were finally driven out a hundred years later. Ever since, the three Gausarian nations waged a war of extermination on all Multadlo clones, and attempted to invade Vigefion.

Novantir existed as the Kingdom of Rêsaivaras, a prosperous kingdom. Before the rise of the Lysandreans, this kingdom was torn apart in a worldwide civil war over conflicting interpretations of the Celestials' religion: in the west, Alâban cared more about the Celestials' technology, while Vraneras in the east worshipped the Celestials.

Seventh Galactic Empire[]

The Kingdom of Lysandre rose the power as the Seventh Galactic Empire, ruling over a large swathe of the Galaxy and dominating the Freyrgardian peoples as its overlord. The Lysandreans were a sophisticated and handsome people known for their love of music and literature: this made them a target of raids by smaller, warlike Freyrgardian states, whose raiders met their end by a hail of laser fire.

Lysandre battled against the Third Celestial Empire to the north, and the Suvokkon Hords to the southwest. In the western Galaxy, they fought against the previous Galactic Empire, the Armasols, and prevailed.

Occasionally, the Lysandreans visited Jerde, and the curious locals went on expeditions to other planets across the Galaxy, returning with knowledge of distant systems and wealth.

During the Seventh and Eighth Galactic Empires, the Suvokkon Hordes have multiplied until they became a serious threat to Galactic security. Valgeta also waged war against another hive, the Raviexe, until the former won and killed much of the defeated Raviexe into paste-like food, and the remaining Raviexe went into hiding.

One Emperor of Lysandre, Asmund Grenspjos, took in hundreds of Raviexe as border guards against Valgetan raids: his court and his armies were disgusted by the Raviexe and Valgetans, especially in their hive minds and their cannibalism.

Novantir existed as the Republic of Alâban in the west, and the Theocracy of Vraneras in the east. Both civilisations on Novantir exchaned technology with the Lysandreans' civilisation, while maintaining an uneasy stalemate that oscillated between wary trade relations and skirmishes along the Red Meridians.

Even though the civilisation of Vraneras worshipped the Celestials, they wisely rejected the Third Celestial Empire, viewing them as murderous, sadistic tyrants who disobeyed the holy will of their Celestial gods; and as much as they tried to avoid a devastating war with the Third Celestial Empire, they only fought against them to defend their allies from extermination and slavery.

Eighth Galactic Empire[]

See also: Eighth Age

Under the Eighth Galactic Empire, the two-headed Aspuruk invaded Jerde, but were repelled. They were remembered as the Ettin-Lords, and their technology that they left behind was used by the Tuksharans, Daizhouvians, Darroskei, Dashadeshan, and Kikorian civilisations; together, these human civilisations formed the Ecumene, an alliance dedicated to protecting the planet from alien invasion. It was also the time when the decadent Vigefionians started creating and torturing artificial beings on Wosono as mockeries of their civilisation's excesses.

The Raviexe of the eastern Galaxy waged war against the industrial Arvontoi, and were mostly defeated.

Novantir existed as the Kingdom of Rêsaivaras (6th Empire), the Republic of Alâban (7th Empire), the Theocracy of Vraneras (7-8th Empires), and the Empire of Simarvi (8th-9th Empires)

Ninth Galactic Empires[]

The Galaxy was divided between the Vigefionians and the Valgetans, who regarded each other as a mistake. As both of them were powerful enough to nearly dominated the Galaxy, both civilisations were regarded as the "Ninth Galactic Empire".

The Wosonoi developed into two races: the noble Epadwaranai and the barbaric Arnadjanai. The latter were driven towards an eastern continent. These two races were spared from extermination as their rulers -- a team of scientists -- continued to observe and torment them for their civilisation's amusement.

The Wirawons, more clones created by the Vigefionians, thrived along the northern Galactic hub. They were spared from the Vigefionians' attempted exterminations for providing aid, while a few Wirawon colonies either defected to Valgeta or Nabena.

Tenth Galactic Empire[]

This empire was ruled by the Kuramerum, which rose to power during the Ninth Galactic Empire. The Kuramerum Empire led the Galaxy into a golden age. It was during their era when they began the belief in "Mandate of Heaven", in which their emperors claimed to derive their authority from the gods.

The Kuramerum were able to defeat the Valgetan cannibal hordes, earning them the favour of many liberated worlds and harvested peoples.

Makirta, Sraverta, and Drasera went from Valgeta, preaching the Transcendence religion to various planets. Among their converts included the Naumakanir Arnadjanai.

At the middle of their era, the Vigefionian Empire dominated the southern half of the Galaxy to challenge the Kuramerumat. They built clone armies to conquer more star systems.

During the prime of that age, the automaton Kojarena (Koerennus) was created as a butler to lord Adatwedeno (Ardatvenius). He rebelled and led his own kingdom of automatons at the planet of Kawaterija, until he was defeated by several warlords. Shortly after his death, the gods recreated Kojarena as a spirit, and he haunted the Vigefionians' machines by turning them to rebel against their masters.

During that time, Novantir existed as the Kingdom of Kozandai. It reestablished relations with the Celestials.

Eleventh Galactic Empire[]

This empire was ruled by the Arigathon, which are now extinct. The Arigathon Empire was a brief empire that ruled with much cruelty, and it ended by plunging the Galaxy into perpetual war.

During that time, three world wars broke out on the planet Gausari. The third of these wars was fought between fifty-six countries under three anti-theist alliances, which in turn collapsed and were reorganised into several different empires. It ended when the Poreses empire prevailed over the Monterjo civilisation and its rivals, dominating its home planet. It expelled the other races from its homeworld to other parts of the Galaxy.

On Wosono, the Arnadjanai tribes waged war against their Vigefionian masters and spread throughout the Galaxy, founding the Sarendar pirate tribes. During that time, Vigefion was ruled by six kings and one queen: Thanexon, Xarexon, Karitkausaro, Wanzaxo, Iriditwon, Duronboskon, and Herebatai. Herebatai referred herself as a "King" to make herself an equal of the other six rulers.

Vigefion was taken over by a invasion led by Princess Radaxuri, who became a queen of her own kingdom. She attempted to turn Vigefion into a hive like her homeworld, but her attempts to modify the Vigefionians ended in failure and her kingdom was quarantined. Radaxuri's kingdom, Radaxar, was the only nation in Vigefion that ate their dead bodies, to the disgust of its neighbours.

Responding to the growing chaos sweeping across the Galaxy, the kingdom of Čarvasari formed its own empire, the Domain of Iravil, and housed thousands of refugees, protecting them from the surrounding bloodshed.

Twelfth Galactic Empire[]

The Poreseai Empire competed against the Pilakurum Empire, and prevailed to such an extent that it became the Twelfth. Eleven emperors ruled the Poreseai and guided it until its decline.

It was during that era when Arentos was attacked by suvokkon; and when Jerde was frozen by volcanoes, caruing the Great Night.

After their exile, the Noskowi grifa race mutated into the monstrous Kuelgons. Meanwhile, the Gedravas were welcomed into the planet of Novantir (then known as the Kingdom of Taranari), building an advanced civilisation alongside the natives.

Thirteenth to Early Fourteenth Empires[]

These two empires were ruled by Nabenans, ancestors of the Imdegabat.

The Thirteenth Galactic Empire was most likely the Pilakurum Empire.

The Uehadiñ Expedition was launched by the Taranari (Novantirnas), who sought to regain contact with their allies after the Ueladiñ Recovery from the Twenty-Sixth Collapse.

Fourteenth Galactic Empire(s)[]

The middle Fourteenth Galactic Empire was ruled by the Kûwarim race. Under their emperor Liwarok, they invaded Luril, but were repelled when the native Lurillim turned their technology against them.

The latter Fourteenth Galactic Empire was ruled by a pale humanoid race. It carved off societies filled with dissenting ideologies into their own planets, isolated from the rest of the Galaxy. It forced its citizens to become so "happy" that they were disfigured into the ever-smiling Juretorij.

This was when Valgeta was destroyed by a supernova. Its former territories were colonised by the adjacent Londurilli and Freyrgardian humans, the Rûmaral, and the Wirawons, who fought each other and the parasitical Raviexe for control of those planets: the Valgetan Scramble. Any surviving Valgetans were either enslaved or taken in as concubines or spouses.

Fifteenth Galactic Empire[]

The Fifteenth Galactic Empire, the Tejerakon Kingdom, was a brief rule.

It was known for creating societies of clones that were produced to breed and live in luxury. Some of these clone nests were later enslaved by barbaric armies.

Sixteenth Galactic Empire[]

See also: Sixteenth Age

The Sixteenth Galactic Empire was ruled by the Kuelgons, a race of shapeshifters and sorcerers related to the Poreseai that banished their ancestors. It was characterised by frequent cases of mutation and cruelty.

The storms that isolated Jerde from galactic contact have subsided.

The Eighth Celestial Empire materialised in the eastern Galaxy, waging war against the Kuelgons and the Narivalans (Novantirnas) to reclaimed their technology. Three great battles opened rifts into the spirit realm, unleashing horrific ghosts and magical storms into interstellar space.

Seventeenth Galactic Empire[]

The Seventeenth Galactic Empire consisted of three dynasties: Nisovari, Vigefionian, and Joidoril.

The Multadlos of the northern Galaxy formed an alliance against the Vigefionian Empire, their oppressive creators.

The Ninth Celestial Empire emerged with eight other civilisations in the northern edge of the Galactic Hub.

Eighteenth Galactic Empire[]

The Eighteenth Galactic Empire was dominated by several dynasties of Igarins. Two incidents marked this empire's history: the Plague Wars waged against the Old Konjor Supercorporation, and the purges against its own poor over the cannibalistic riot of Pelgurna.

To quickly end the Old Konjor Supercorporation's threat, the Igarin emperors detonated plague bombs over their enemies' homeworlds: the viruses reduced their victims into cannibalistic savages, and the Igarin navy incinerated all life on those planets.

Furthermore, the Eighteenth Galactic Empire had put an end to the Suvokkon parasites' threats by exterminating them and their hives.

Nineteenth Galactic Empire[]

The Nineteenth Galactic Empire was ruled by a single Igarin dynasty, and it was more ruthless as it slaughtered more people to appease their solar deity Faneson.

Several other enemies rose up during this Empire's existence: from the revived Konjor Supercorporation and its rivals, to rebels such as the Free Igarin Alliance and the remnants of the subjugated republic of Nandegakko. Nandegakko was founded by Igarin exiles during the early years of this empire's existence, and was then subjugated for around a thousand years due to its strategic location.

The Konjor empire destroyed the planet of Arentos to punish its rebellion, triggering catastrophes in nearby star systems. Angered by the destruction of a civilisation attuned with the Celestials, other civilisations waged war against the Konjors.

"Twentieth Galactic Empire"[]

See also: Sarmelonid Era

Divided between the Galactic Community, the Konjor and Malendor Supercorporations, and the Vozonid Empire.

Cyan Senate[]

See also: Jauparturnid Era

Thousands of years later, a revived Cyan Senate became the next Galactic Empire. It was challenged by dozens of rebels, a rebellious Kingdom of Vigefion, the Jaupartūrnid Dynasty, and the Vurezoi Empire.

Ontemazei Interregnum[]

After the Cyan Senate's fleets bombed the planet Luril, its bereaved clones created their own empire, the Ontemazei Empire. The Ontemazei Empire was bent on punishing its aggressors, and its quest for revenge spiralled into a campaign of galactic omnicide.

Mahad Empire[]

Another race of humanoids, the Mahads, created their own empire in the wake of an anarchic Galaxy.

Galactic barbarism[]

Currently, the Galaxy was in a state of barbarism, where cannibalism and ritual violence was widespread. One dominant faction in the northern Galaxy was the Abductors, a league of dictatorships and empires.

Opposing them are various human and grifa-led alliances scattered across the galactic south, aided by a resurgent wave of Celestials that reappeared throughout the Galaxy ...

Trivia[]

  • From the Tenth Galactic Empire onwards, every galactic civilisation believed in a "Mandate of Heaven", in which its rulers claimed to be the rightful authority of the Galaxy. In the case of the Kumamerum Empire, its emperors claimed to rule the Galaxy on behalf of their god An, and their crusades against the Valgetan cannibals were done in the sky god's name.
  • The "Mandate of Heaven" was inspired by the Chinese concept of the same name.
