    This thread is meant to be a self-organizing list of bits of lore that people come up with over time. For example, Marty said that one can make up a list of movies on the spot; thusly a list in a spoiler could be added to the thread that has a list of movies and maybe short descriptions. The point of this thread will be to kinda self-organize the lore of the new universe beyond what is already given since there will not be a central database. With that said, please have common sense. We're here to have fun!

    Sidenote: Just reply with an idea or event that could have feasibly happened or been invented and add a description. I'll add it to a category in a spoiler and now people will have a standard lore piece.

    Calender: 30 August, 1920 A.C.

    The Kingdom of Rikeland?
    I had sort of a plan since everything in the empire split, Rikeland became a Constitutional Monarchy like irl Sweden. I want to have my character's family sort of as monarchs, but I want to check if that's not too much. I want to contribute to the geopolitical part of the AU, but at the same time I don't want to be too pushy or mary-sueish

    Also for the events! Let's make something like the League of Nations!

    Would it be alright to have my family have a member as a politician as part of the parliament in Rikeland? I'm just asking since in the current universe, the Fristadvloms are Hoglander aristocrats and I'd like them to take even a dip in the political scene in the nation they live in. I hope I'm not being too much of a bother, just need a lot of guidance for this.

    The Wirtemcaller and Second Hecarian Republics:

    After the United Essalonian States ended the Great War and brought many civil liberties to the Regalian Archipelago, the citizens of Calemberg and Osyria began to question the divine authority of their monarchs and nobility. After demonstrations by the military servicemen returning from the war after the nobility did not look into the Shell Shock many of the troops faced, the monarchs were forced to abdicate, and the nobility's status was nullified. In the Wirtemcaller Republic, these once royal houses maintained their castles, but were legally no different from the commoners they once ruled over. In the Hecarian Republic, the nobility was abolished, and even the familiar "von" and "zu" particles were legally revoked with noble privilege.

    Despite this radical change in society, there are some former nobility that still grasp to the romanticized stories of their forefathers, with some forming underground monarchist movements to one day see the return of their former Kingdoms.


    In short, the forced changes to individual rights completely destroyed the patriarchal mindsets of the eastern realms after centuries of refinement, to the point where there was no going back to the good old days. The old was killed, and the new had come. Only time would tell if this republican experiment would prove its worth.

    Please be aware that if other players do not recognize the lore specified, they are allowed to do so. I for example will not recognize the Hecarian Kingdom for Osteiermark, because in my canon, the Osteiermark is cohesive and still a Kingdom.

    - The De Florian Motor Company -
    The De Florian Motor Company (or the DMC) pretty much just makes your simple car for you average worker. Their cars are roubust, basic and versitile (something similar to the Ford Model T). The company is run by some stubborn dudes so there are only a few types of cars which are usually just one car with a different use (ie. a normal road car with an open back and now it is a truck).

    The De Florian Looxois - A simple and popular car. It is the basic car all the variants are based on.
    The De Florian Solaire - A pickup tuck version. Stripped down and supper basic.
    The De Florian Pouvoire - The van vairient. Used by the police and companies.
    The De Florian Regalois - A specailised version for taxis and chaufers. On the fancier side.

    Big list of Ok

    Of course you don't have to follow any of these, they're simply somthing to have to be more lore fitting or a catalog of things you would most likely be able to use during this time. Many thanks to @AtticCat @notjayp, @automagicals and some others for helping fill in this long list.
    A short overview of weapons in the 1920s, some have been altered or changed to be more lore friendly.
    [​IMG]
    Double Barrel Shotgun - Manufactured and brought all across the world the Double Barrel Shot is a classic sight in any situation, rather it be in a rural sport, a farmer's friend or even a Malvi's right hand man. It fires a plastic cartridge rather than a normal brass casing, filled with pellets and a wad to hold them.


    [​IMG]
    .45 Double Action Revolver
    The .45 is a small caliber revolver that is bought by most as a self defense weapon. The revolver is easy to conceal, hide or even. During the early 1900s the revolver was first carried by members of the police force before being widespread as they are now. Police and Sherifs will still lean to this old reliable any day.


    [​IMG]
    .357 Double Action Revolver
    Simple and Historical. The .357 Caliber revolver is somthing spread across Hikata Films and has become the symbol of the east. These pistols being rather old in their dates, but still prove to be just as notorious as they where once before across the great deserts. Rather it be a tool for hunting, work or defense this Revolver has stood the tests of time to be able to stand with most modern weapons today.




    [​IMG]
    1905 - Selpisto
    With advancing technology in the UES the Selpisto proved to be a valuable sidearm for generals during forward charges, the semi-automatic pistol has an eight round box before it's empty. It's fast and small but can be prone to jam.


    [​IMG]
    Kadence Submachine Gun
    Famed for it's new and innovative looks, the Kadence Submachine Gun, or KSG for short is a quick firing automatic gun that's used in war and alike. The famed and profitable weapon found its value in its high magazines and its lightweight carry. The general circle shaped drum mag carries fifty even bullets in it, while the normal stick mag has only twenty.

    [​IMG]
    Bisulian Model 1920
    While just after it's peak at the end of the first war, the Model 1920 Bisulian is a semi-automatic pistol that's comfortable and durable. Being more modern than it's predecessor the Selpisto, the Bisulian comes with an easy to make design and newfound wide appreciation.

    [​IMG]
    Lever-actions
    A simple hunting tool or weapon of the east before, the lever action is a weapon that's old and rememberable. Following it's ease of accessibility being that it's a hunting rifling, the lever action used a .357 cartridge to be able to fire. Using the lever to be able to eject the fired shot after. What's surprising about the rifle is how much you fire off if you're skilled enough. Many able to fire seven to ten bullets in two to three seconds.


    [​IMG]
    Stoneford & Abraham (S&A) Model Bolt Action Rifle
    While modified for war, the Bolt action comes in many forms as a hunter's dream or a ground soldier's worst nightmare. Coming with a precise and straight forward sight, many coming with a clip or manually loaded cartridge. What's saddening about the rifle however is it's slow pace, having to bolt a new shot every time you fire. But it's rage, precision and unbeatable use it makes up for it.

    Imad al-Din Al-asiri (Imad Asiri) - Slizzar (Generally Qadir)
    EARLY LIFE
    Imad Asiri was born as Imad al-Din Al-Asiri to Imran and Maryam Al-Asiri in the early 1890s. Born in the Hadarian town Saghir, (meaning small in common), he often performed plays for the town goers. By the age of 11, his parents moved to the United Essaloanian States for better opportunities. His parents made little to no money, and lived in the slums. But that did not stop him. Although a Slizzar, we have many details about his life through his public statements.

    TEEN YEARS
    al-Asiri was enrolled at a public school, where his love for acting only grew. He was a great actor, singer, and student. At the age of 15, however, it is rumoured that he has got a girl named Fatima Darwish pregnant, giving birth to an unknown child who supposedly lives with their mother.

    ACTING CAREER
    The first film that al-Asiri starred in was called “Wulidat Alshams”, (A Sun is Born) a Hitaka that did not do so successfully. The movie plot was about two lovers who were not meant to be together. He got attention from a big Hitaka movie producer, Gaffar Chatti, who let him star in his first major movie, Alkrud ‘Iilaa Rijalia, translating to ‘Running to Regalia’ in common. This film blew up, and quickly rose him to fame. He starred in a number of movies after that.

    I am transferring the lore to a central Google Document. From now on please post lore in a format similar to how FireFan96, Mortisian or Bearacuda have so everyone can read it cohesively. I'll add it to the doc and provide a link in the original post. With that said, please delete any reply that is not posting lore.

    The Socialist Revolutionary Republics of Ériu-Innis and Etosil: After the Great War, these countries were devastated by war and bloodshed, thus causing civil unrest amongst their populace’s as many became hungry and unemployed, and a revolutionary fervor against the more conservative elements of their respective lands. These social revolutions would further give rise to a global red scare, an influx of immigrants from these lands into Regalia to escape the brutal civil wars and most importantly, scrutiny towards the revolutionary factions who go by the name of the “Communards”.
