Many years ago, the Gods, Arun and Shara's children, warred against each other. The mortal races who these deities had created suffered from a world in continual conflict and divine interference. Many of the gods took pity on the mortal races that their first patrons had cared for, and protected them. An example of this is when Kaia took care of the Amani after the death of Amarun. Elinu was the first god to perish in the conflict, and the war ended with the death of many gods or their imprisonment.
After the end of the Divine War, many of the races met together and became friendly. This led to the creation of the Valkyon Coalition, and it as it is known today. The Coalition pledged itself to protecting the world of Arborea from any foreign race that might mean to hurt or destroy it.
When the Island of Dawn rose from the sea, all of Arborea took action. The Coalition dispatched Elleon to lead the forces of Arborea to claim it, and as a result was attacked and his men were slaughtered. The Coalition is now working to claim it from the enemy forces that are attempting to push it back. This is where the events of TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea take place.
When the emergence of a mysterious race known as the Argons happened, the Coalition quickly responded to their attacks and waged war on the foreigners. Many casualties and destruction has happened because of the war, including the almost constant siege of Kaiator.
Southern Arun is the heart of the Federation. It is also the place where the Argons invaded. With their attacks, the Coalition valiantly holds the lines to protect Velika from attack. The Coalition is also protecting Castanica and Poporia.
It is here where the argons rose up from the Underworld. The argons have begun to bring large machines up from the Black Cave to terraform TERA into their terrible image. This region is ravaged by war, and the aman city Kaiator is an oasis of protection for the victims of the conflict. The arctic landscape makes it hard for the Coalition to attack the huge argon machines that are destroying the landscape.
This region is more untouched by war, but the High Elves here still must deal with bandits and demons that hope to threaten their people. Allemantheia is located here, and is hard pressed for water that surrounding towns are failing to provide.
The Vanarchs makes sure that the Coalition runs smoothly, and also govern the cities of Arborea. They can be elected by the citizens of Arborea, every three to four weeks. Vanarchs are elected by either a vote of the citizens, or by a trial of combat with the other Vanarch and his/her allies. Once elected, they dictate taxes, flight paths, and the merchants that appear in their province. Vanarchs get a special horse to serve as their badge of office.
Exarchs govern entire continents of Arborea, are the high rulers of the Coalition. Exarchs govern the military and how to oppose the Argon threat.
The Military of the Coalition runs the armies of the planet. They send out warriors to accomplish tasks, especially against the Argons.
