The Karnasaur Meritocratic Federation, or KMF, was the single oldest and most technologically advanced empire in the Milky Way Galaxy since the Omni Empire. Credited as the founders of the Old Galactic Senate, they co-existed with a multitude of other space faring civilization including the Hunre Empire (New Hunre Republic, post-Hunre Civil War) and the Heglarean Empire. However, after the Second Galactic War, which caused the extinction of the Heglareans in the Milky Way and the dissolution of the Hunre Republic, and the beginning of the Third Age, they were the only space-faring empire in the Galaxy. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons which are only speculated upon, the KMF collapsed some thousands of years before the birth of the Second Iteration of the Galactic Senate.

History[edit | edit source]

The history of the KMF is long and largely lost; Archaeologists work vigorously to discover what they can of the recently discovered dead empire.

It is estimated that the KMF had colonized at least 340,000 different star systems, but due to the limitations of FTL technology, only a fraction of these systems have been discovered. Most of these systems have been found in the Scutum-Centaurus Arm, but KMF ruins have been found all over the Milky Way Galaxy and even in some parts of the Andromeda Galaxy.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

The KMF left behind numerous artifacts and ruins which are currently slavored over and sought after by all major political powers. Collectively, these artifacts, ruins, lexicons, and sites are referred to as the Legacy of the Karnasaurs. Technology such as weapons and FTL drives are top priorities for governments, while private researchers mostly search for the history and culture of the race. Recent discoveries hint towards a so-named 'Last Wrym of Karnas' who carries some great Book of the Nightbourne, which is said to carry all information on the Karnasaurs; Their history, their culture, their government, leaders, technology, and all manner of other such things. The 'Last Wrym' story indicates a survivor of some sort, likely in suspended animation, which the Karnasaurs left behind as a voluntary legacy.

In addition, the Legacy has had profound effects on civilizations such as the now-prominent Sacred Federation of the Praetori, which claims itself to be the KMF reborne, especially since it covers much of the previous territory and thus controls the majority of Legacy sites and items.
