The Vault of War 62 members · 8 stories

Once, in a time long past, there was a land. In this land were many countries, filled with proud and intelligent creatures who lived in harmony with those around them.

The Lands of the Ponies, Dragons, Griffins, Zebras and Humans stood out among the rest of the nations as the greatest in this land. For millennia, all was peaceful, with only light skirmishes breaking out every few decades.

It was not to last however.

Greed, bloodlust, and power obsession eventually drove both the Humans and the Dragons to spark a conflict that would change the fate of their world forever. The conflict was recorded by every major species and put away so that, if they were to survive this war, their descendants would learn from their mistakes.

This vault, The Vault of War, serves as the archive for the stories and records that were penned during this great tragedy. The war has many names and no one name would best fit it, so it is referred to differently depending on the tale that is read.

Unfortunately, many of the records have been stolen, destroyed, or simply faded over the course of time, thus leaving the vault empty. What the keepers of the vault ask is that any who might be in possession of a one or more of these stories and records, to return them so that they might be kept for future generations. Also, if you posses any stories that have been passed down to you from many generations, we ask that you also submit them to the vault.

To Those Who Wish To Add to The Vault or Are Pondering Doing So,

Some of you might be asking, "Why should I care what goes into ANOTHER FiMfiction group?" Well, I'm glad you asked that. I created this group for those who enjoy reading and/or writing war and/or warfare related fics. This is also somewhat of an experiment, to see if a group can be created around a story that hasn't actually been written. So if you're still interested after this very brief explanation, thank you and keep reading below.

A general overview of the "story" has been given to you and, if you are to add stories to the group, this is the general backstory you must adhere to. The entirety of the rules are posted here:

If you're still reading, I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for wanting to be a part of this group.

Sorry. I've been meaning to check out this group for a while. I surprisingly just noticed the invite notification, and now I am a member. I'm looking forward to the stories that are placed in the group. Thank's for inviting me!

364006 A very good question indeed.

For the purposes of the background, a minor race is a race that would often either be overlooked, not as well known or simply weaker then other races/nations.

If you were to compare it to today's world, minor races would be seen as smaller nations or nations simply not as well known as world powers such as the U.S., Russia, China etc.

I hope this helps clear up any confusion.

I just want to clear something up. Being a minor race, does that mean that they are just in the minority in populace of the world, their political situation puts them in a place that they aren't subject to fully recognized ruler and are not recognized as a true nation by the other more powerful and recognized nations, or simply that they weren't a thing originally put in at the start and are just added in by users or something like that?

363058 It all depends on how you want it to be. If the world you see is built that way, then yes, each land has it's own advantages.

Ah, cool cool. I was just windering is all.

363057 MInotaurs ARE a minor race.
Kitsune is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Most basic form, magic foxes.
Here's some more info.

I am guessing each land has a certain advantage over others right? Ponies being better with magic, dragons just being powerful, and humans tech?

What are kitsunes

And also, are Minotaurs a minor race?

362808 My apologies, I almost forgot about them :rainbowlaugh:I will edit the guide also be for those minor species I had originally left out.

Hey! What about the kitsunes?
