This is the universe in which many of my stories are set. Conia is only one of the many countries in it, though it is most focused on. The history I have recorded spans about 17 centuries, from a sort of medieval time of swords and sorcery to a futuristic, even post-apocalyptic, state. There is, notably, a group of people usually referred to as Free Spirits, who are immortal and have taken it upon themselves to shape the world according to the goddess Cona's will… or twist it by the god Anoc's.

Conia (which is mountainous) in particular is at the top end of a backwards-c-ish shaped continent (map forthcoming), and Tunibaia (which is mostly plains), where many of my figments visit, is southeast of it. In the early stages of this universe, however, there is only the Conian Empire (first and second), which includes most of both countries.


See above; I should also note that Conia and Tunibaia have a loooooong history of fighting each other, usually precipitated by Grifex.

It's hard to say throughout the passage of time. However, pre-GMW (Great Mage War) the Conian Empire was actually a monarchy (see Uryir and Jonec). Afterwards, and up until the Age of Technology (see above), the Empire had an emperor. After that, I haven't really figured it out yet, but my Mallory's time it's a democracy. Also, Myfan and Glader consider themselves to be the protectors of whoever happens to be in control throughout the ages, though said ruler usually doesn't know this (one exception is Lydon).

Capital/Major Cities

Will fill in later…


Mostly humans, but later there are Shadowfolk. Will expand later.

With the exception of the Paladins, who become very cult-like, there is really only one religion, as Cona (and to an extent, even Anoc), are pretty involved in the world's history, mostly through Free Spirits and Spirit Fighters. Before Cieldor's time, however, was "pagan", and there are people who refuse to acknowledge either divinity by Ayne's time (Paladins included, sort of (my Paladins are… unusual)).


Will fill in later… this needs a lot of explaining.

Grifex and his puppets- by extension, Anoc and his other Spirit Fighters, but most of them die/give up, and Anoc doesn't do much himself.
