The Erde Realm is one of the states of the Six Realms. It is located between the Feuer Realm and the Wasser Realm. The realm was established by the Erde Father and the Mother of Truth & Secrecy.

Leadership Edit

The Erdefunfte family is the ruling highborn house of the Erde Realm, with several estates across the Realm. It is assisted by the lowborn Schmutzleben and Totersieg families.

The first Great Mage of the Erde Realm was Mareike Erdefunfte, and the realm has since had sixteen rulers. It's current Great Mage is Svetya Erdefunfte, and its Great Lady is Daniya.

The Erde Realm has no official standing army. However, following the calamity of the Schwarzdorf crusade in 202, brothers Bieder and Redlich Erdefunfte established the Viele compound beyond the borders of the Six Realms. Over the next two centuries, slaves within the Erde Realm were strategically purchased by the Erdefunfte family (under pseudonyms) and funnelled into the Viele, where they were trained as an independent specialised force loyal only to the Gebeiters (members of the Erdefunfte family). The army assisted the United Forces in the defence of the Six Realms in 401, when their existence was made public.

The Laws of the Erdefunfte are the official laws of the Erde Realm. They are as follows:
