Kingdoms of Hate
The Rise of the Federation
During the Underground War the Thri-kreen sent explorers from their desert to find places to begin gathering materials for their great cities. The Thri-kreen settled in the desert on the oasis dead in the center of the desert. They had built structures from the trees in the oasis. Usually they could only build one or two structures every time the trees grew back. Eventually they sacrificed a year without structure to plant seeds every month of the year. The trees grew every month and the Thri-kreen had enough lumber to build homes for their citizens.
They sent out explores to find materials to aid the Thri-kreen in any way. The Explorers instead found the Goblins. Seeing the great structures they had created using stone and metal. The Thri-kreen began trading lumber for metal with the Goblins.
With both the metal and lumber the Thri-Kreen created the worlds first airship. The great ship was named the Solas. The Thri-kreen began forming their Federation. Electing leaders rather than having a continuing ruler. With the Solas the Thri-kreen explored and mapped out the whole desert and began exploring the Swamps.
