The Greater Stahlfaust Empire is a monarchy located on Gaushan, Prospit, and Moria and is led by Kaisers of the Van Orden royal family. Stahlfaust was originally founded in its former capital Wulfheim but its current capital is Arctanis, which is in northern Gaushan.


The Greater Stahlfaust Empire is run by the Imperial Court, which is responsible for running all territories of the Empire. On the other hand, Stahlfaust proper is run by the council of nobles. While Stahlfaust has legislative systems, the Kaiser still holds most power in the government.

The Hole Under the Sun is the result of a merge between The Hole and AIK, the two most prevalent religions in Stahlfaust.

Stahlfaust vs. Melius Tempus War

On 3/22/22 Stahlfaust declared war against the town of Melius Tempus for "Several acts of aggression against the Empire and our allies..."

War for the Future of Arith

The "War for the Future of Arith" was fought between the two major nations on Arith, the F.C.A. and Solaris.

Haraouz is a merchant state in Stahlfaust which was founded on the ruins of Ar-Raqqah, west of The Hole. Zauburg is a ruined town east of The Hole, the now ruined city state shared cultural and economic ties to Stahlfaust and was absorbed after their collapse.

The Greater Empire


Stahlfaust imperial ambitions began on Prospit after the fall of Sakanto, one of the last nations left on Prospit. The power vacuum left by the absent nations of Prospit made it easier for Stahlfaust to install governments whom were loyal to the Stahlfaust Empire. The first settlement to declare loyalty to Stahlfaust was Kilimand which was founded on what was formerly know as New-Reno.

The Krosston Imperium was founded on 6/18/22 by Pharaoh Savimbi van Orden I after the collapse of New-Reno, which was led by Savimbi's father. The Krosston Imperium was heavily funded by Stahlfaust investors, which provided more than $350,000 in cash and building materials. Investments from Stahlfaust proved to be successful as the Krosston Imperium turned into a stable and thriving government.

Early Krosston Imperium

In the early life of the Krosston Imperium they expanded rapidly and founded 6 towns under their name which gave them claim to many coastal areas along Propit. On 7/9/22 Stahlfaust and the Krosston Imperium formed the Van Orden Imperial Pact which united Van Orden led nations politically and militarily. Although their were only two members at the point of foundation it quickly grew to 4 members. Soon after the formation of the Van Orden Imperial Pact the Krosston Imperium declared war against Itar. Ashina was quick to support Itar, so in response Stahlfaust joined the war to support the Krosston Imperium. The war ended in a draw but proved the strength of the Van Orden Imperial Pact and the Greater Stahlfaust Empire.

Post-War Krosston Imperium

After the Krosston vs. Itar war, the Krosston Imperium annexed Oakland and began its war against Meloncrest. Shortly after declaring war, Pharaoh Savimbi van Orden I crowned Dr. Arzt Pharaoh of Krosston for an unspecified amount of time.

Important Relics

The Van Orden Sabre

The Van Orden Sabre is one of the important relics of the royal family of Stahlfaust. The sabre was originally forged by the ancient tribes of Wulfheim to be used in combat by the chiefs, but in modern Stahlfaust, it only sees ceremonial use. It is a traditional sabre with a slight curve at the tip, a silver handguard with wolf and eagle emblems, and a large ruby at the base of the pommel. Most importantly, along the blade, the Van Orden motto is etched: "By Blood, We Shall Prevail." The motto has two meanings: the blood of the Van Orden family is superior to other imperial families, and the second meaning is that we will succeed through the blood spilt by our enemies. The sword is passed down from leader to leader of the Stahlfaust Empire and symbolizes power within the empire.

The Stahlfaust Gauntlet

The Stahlfaust Gauntlet was created by the tribes of Wulfheim and passed down from generation to generation, chief to chief. Eventually the tribes of Wulfheim progressed into what is now Stahlfaust and the Van Orden royal family. The Stahlfaust Gauntlet is a sign of power and prestige in the empire and is wielded by the whomever rules the Stahlfaust Empire. The current holder of the Stahlfaust Gauntlet is Kaiser Arctan van Orden III.
