The present era of the world is futuristic. Robots, anti-gravity, lasers, and anything else you might find in a science fiction genre are present. However, governmental structures are much less advanced than ours, fleeting back to the feudal system. There are few kingdoms, one feudal republic, and one best described as a benevolent tyranny. The remaining "countries" are broken up as fiefdoms, tribal and clan colonies, martial law, and sometimes anarchy. Extraplanetary exploration is not yet implemented, since there are no governments united enough to attempt such feats. The world itself is fantasy, containing magic and races of classical myth (no copyrighted races, which is typically more modern fantasy).
While the political structure is weak, there is an order more ancient than kingdoms and often more authoritative: The League of Aldonadi.
