Empire of the Gear
The Empire of the Gear has risen to incredible power in less the 20 years. Formed by a man known only as the Steel Emperor, it consists of seven core cities which have developed into an industrial war-driven network.
The Steel Emperor has declared that all non-human races are illegal, and stories of mass exodus are told by the refugees traveling west.
One thing is clear: the Empire of the Gear is expanding, and for those of non-human ancestry, the future is uncertain.
