The History of Terraloga

Before Valus (1000 - 0 BVE)

A long time ago, the mysterious meteorite containing an extraordinary, precious crystal, had striken the earth.

Seeing it as a gift from their god, the people tried to adapt it for their own beliefs. However, the crystal was too dangerous it's being hidden from the anybody's eyes, as the last time they did, all their loves vanished. And for a thousand years of the curse, it'd became the myth. The legendary artefact.

The strange stone from the sky

This was until a group of brave people, in a hope to bring back their fallen kingdom, found it and created the powerful weapons of destruction. By the command of Valus Rarmon, the uprising to bring his kingdom back was incredibly success, and therefore the new superpower has arisen.

The Era of Unity (1 VE - present)

The wish of Valus must be fulfilled. The peace of the Valonian must be secured. All the land must be theirs. In the generations of the conquest with stability.

As the new era begun, The mighty army began marching toward the east, spreading their word of wisdom and glory across the entire peninsular. The power benefited from the Catstropium turned the empire into an innovative and unstoppable force.

With no arsenal can compare, the defenders have no other choice, either to fear and give up—or to fight and surrender.

Nevertheless, all their wisdom and latest knowledge were in fact the foundation of what they were to achieve. Would the empire be stopped? Only time will tell...

The Valonia Empire is in great benefit. The iron Kingdom of Ohun has been defeated! Although there's unrest around the borderline, the fast-maneuverable crystal armies would take them down in a matter of time.

Caused by the iron trade when their long-time ally, Irgia Republic, giving them less irons. Since no irons, comes no army, this war has achieved a significant milestone to their future world domination.

Soon, the mean of production will increase, so do the plot to keep the republic shut...

From my understanding, your world is all about how one empire obtained access to firearms before anyone else and is now using them to exert dominance on their surrounding nation-states.   You should really explore how your empire's relationship with these firearms has developed as a culture. Further, I'm sure other nations have managed to acquire these weapons at some point. When the advantage is this great, you're going to try and find a way to get it yourself.   One thing I would recommend, as you're clearly a bit of an artist, is to do some custom art for the guns themselves and the organized military that uses them. These firearms feel like the 'main character' of your world as it stands and you really should spend some time fleshing them out.

Thank you so much for your suggestions! It means so much to me. <3   And yes, the main story is all about that, it might be as long as centuries. However, the only problem I got is to design the gun and its mechanism visually, I'm still stuck here figuring it out if it should be as real as possible or not. :(

I don't think it needs to 'as real as possible' I only think it needs to be believable   It sounds like a magical crystal element from a meteor is the reason this nation was able to figure out firearms so quickly, so why not just lean into a flint-lock or basic musket design using the crystal as a primary aesthetic. Your readers should understand.

The underdog fighting for a noble goal of freedom being tempted by having too much power and influence and turning evil is one of my most favourite niche tropes in storytelling!   I think you've done a good job with the introduction to your world - it's easily digestible and doesn't intimidate you when you first step in to dip your toes in the world. The layout and formatting are done well, the artwork is really nice and fits greatly with the world! There are some issues with grammar, but that's really the easiest to fix.   I look forward to reading more of and getting to know your world! Keep up the great work!
