The Great Powers have seen many victories over the years and many defeats as they fought among one another and the other races across the Aether. Victory has come at a price, however, and many of the people of the great nations have become wary of outsiders. This has caused many to live in isolation within their own colonies or home countries. In times of peace this is especially shown as people tend to travel only within their own country’s sphere of influence. The people are hopeful however that with the new attacker that once victory is achieved the human race will be forged anew and the Great Powers will finally be able to overcome their differences and unite together as a common people. That would be the greatest victory of all.
