The Grand Empire (also known as The Weirdstone Empire) was a Human empire that covered all of Craxumia. Little is known about this civilisation, except that it was destroyed in a terrible Weirdstone disaster. Remnants of the Empire can be found scattered throughout Craxumia. The few surviving written records from the Empire describe an technologically advanced dictatorship with an economy based on Weirdstone. Many of the most powerful Artefacts to be found on Craxumia are devices created during this time.
It has taken hundreds of years for civilisation to re-emerge from the rubble of the Empire.
