In 2018 GSC, along with other small populations from Earth, 328 German citizens were placed on Jord with nothing but their immediate possessions and a no memory of life before that very moment. The majority could recognize their amnesia, but with the effect of the transportation quickly were forced to adapt to the change. The German colonists could not speak the language of the majority, and could only speak amongst themselves. These fragmented people were given a Seer, an elf to aide them. The Germans referred to her as the Walküre.

The Walküre taught them Elvish, and the germans contributed back with Deutsche. The Walküre and her followers led them away from Jord to a group of star cluster far away and set them down on a world similar to what fragmented images the humans were able to give. The Walküre herself left, but left her trusted advisors behind to watch over these lost people, and the children of these elves are present to this day.

Given the gift of technology and knowledge by the Walküre as her last gift, the people began to grow and expand. A small handful were even blessed with the gift of magic, and combined with their new technological knowledge, they built up their home system and constructed machines to aid the growth of their population unnaturally. These incubators would be used for a hundred years to grow the population to a natural number before being deconstructed as one of the last magically-enhanced devices the people would ever use. As the population grew, so did the government. Hans Schierkoft, an older man Schierkoft was different than most of the Third Children, he had visions. Visions of a people, from different flags and callings, united under one man, one leader, a man called a Kaiser. Schierkoft spoke of his teachings, and he gained followers. Soon, the majority was convinced of their holy cause. They were a people, a group of the same. A “Bundesdeutsche” in their tongue. Thus the Bundesdeutsche Reich was claimed, and the first Kaiser’s banner was raised in 2040 GSC.

With their growth, came expansion. Early space travel yielded them quickly to their neighbors. The Gartagens and the Kishargal both had mixed reactions. While the Dominion chose to open limited diplomatic openings, the Union kept them at arms length. Over time, ties with the Union were hastily formed as trade commenced between the growing Bundesdeutsche and the recovering Gartagen Union and the open-armed Constitutional Dominion. Both taught them many things, the military of the Reich remains heavily based on the Ersetu Royal military, and their technology borrows from Gartagen doctrine and design. In a four hundred year battle to gain their current size, the Bundesdeutsche rose in both number and strength.

Though as time and strength grew on, the flow of magic began to die. As more and more of the magic population began to dwindle, the machine-grown did not have a magical affinity, and as they bred the affinity became lesser and lesser. A great magical storm marked the end of the magic in 2078, when the last human mage died of natural causes and the power left the world forever. The Reich's elven population no longer could garner strength outside of life forces, and magic was quickly rendered into something convoluted and hard to harness. While magic was never outlawed, its use became shunned as the only power source able to handle anything large was the lives of people. The last known use of magic inside the Kaiserreich was the healing of the Kaiser's Kirikuu 'Mackensen' from a form of cancer.

In their almost 1000 year reign, the Bundesdeutsche Kaiserreich has expanded in a primarily peaceful manner, with only internal squabbles and conflicts between houses stalling the growth temporarily. The Kaiserreich has remained neutral to most conflicts outside of its own domain, but has a fierce retaliation concept against any hostile forces. Any potential incursion has been met with sanctions, blockades, and even combat actions in very rare cases, such as with a Gartagen privateer in 2405. The latest political incident has been the vocal denunciation of expansions by Empire of Tai Pan and failing diplomatic attempts only making diplomacy increasingly difficult.

As a monarchy, the Reich works like a machine. The Major systems dominate the minor systems in population and technology, the minors are all made loyal through strategic yet necessary trade networks that run their economies. Each system benefits the others, and the people are the gears that work the machine. This has led to controversy rooted between the likes of the major and minor systems and the say that each has. The Kaiser is a hereditary position, in which the Man or Woman on the throne is usually the offspring of the previous Kaiser. The Reichskanzler is chosen by the Kaiser by tradition, and is usually a close member to the family and strictly loyal. Finally the council, known as the Bundesrat, is nominated officials of each system’s peerage.

  • Army: The Bundesdeutsche Heer, more simply known as Das Heer or simply Heer, is the ground force responsible for defense of the Kaiserreich’s planets as well as assault in cases necessary. They were distinctive uniforms with Field Gray uniforms and black or white ranks to distinguish themselves. Their battle equipment traditionally is their regular uniform with leather field wear alongside supporting tanks and aircraft.
  • Navy: The Reich’s Interstellare Marine3) is the larger of the two military branches, spanning border to border. Unlike the Heer, their uniforms are blue and white, for the enlisted and officers respectively, their ranks black and gold. The ships of the Interstellare Marine are traditionally shaped like conventional naval vessels with turretted primary armaments and secondary as well as fixed tertiary torpedo tubes in the bows. Special vessels called Gentarnteboote or G-Boats, literally cloaked boats, are also present. They belong to the similarly named Gentarnteboote-Korps and operate separately from the primary fleets.

The Kaiserreich does not have a civilian police force, instead portions of the Weltraum Heer's Feldgendarmerie as a standing police force. Their uniforms are indistinguishable from the regular army minus a gorget worn around the neck and chest level.

The Bundesdeutsche Interstellare Kaiserreich is made up of three primary sectors: the Capital Systems, the Großreich4), and the colonies of the Kolonialreichweiten5).

The Capital systems are in the center of the Kaiserreich's territory, a bustling center of industry, trade, and politics.

Otherwise known as “Die Kaiserkrone,” or The Kaiser's Crown, due to its ring formation around the Capital worlds, each system has varying fortes and quirks, each being distinct from its neighbors in a variety of different ways.

Formed out of a now long-stalled campaign by the Kaiser to expand the Reich, now the chartered imperial colonies are a poorer arm of the populace, faced with hardships due to numerous circumstances from ongoing terraforming to resisting natives.

From the outside, the men and women of the Bundesdeutsche are very patriotic and proud people, but are also simplistic to some. Their cities do not contain very many highrises, and are small compared to their blood-relative Alliance’s. Communities are often close together, both in policy as well as location. Their clothing matches that of late 1800s Germany and Austria, simplistic yet distinct. Most have lighter skin, hair, and eyes, but other variations are common as well. The Bundesdeutsche are welcoming, but value their empire’s strength as well.


With their gifted technology and clever use of the Word, the Bundesduetsche constructed incubators and grew their population with magical efficiency. After one hundred years of rapid and constant use, the Bundesdeutsche were able to manage their population naturally and the machines were set aside as medical emergencies. This system continued for a century before being retired completely in favor of purely natural birth.


There is only one main religion that was born in the Kaiserreich, other religions in the region are all alien and come from missionaries that have come in the past. The largest and most prominent is the Church of the Valkyrie. They worship the God of the Valkyrie, who is unnamed and simply referred to as “Die Göttin” or “Die Walküre,” a feminine and sometimes over-representation of the elves that led them to Reich from Jord. They have a doctrine similar to the Alliance' Christian Church, but are strict in who they call sinners as they believe that only Die Walküre and her Lesser Valkyries know who is truly evil. This religion is currently backed by the Kaiser's dynasty and, while never forced, has always kept it on his or her banner as a sign of respect. Roughly 87 percent of the Bundesdeutsche follow this religion, the others are either agnostic, atheist, or believe in a lesser-represented religion.

They are a modern society. They have full FTL technology and their ships range from small independent transports to massive battlecarriers designed to carry full fighter wings while also bringing massive firepower to the field. Able to construct ships in large quantities due to improved shipbuilding as well as modular and simplified designs, the Reich’s ships can bring the peace through overwhelming force if needed.
