Massive genocidal warfare.

All the world's governments are collapsing... more or less simultaneously.

Hundreds of power-hungry Magisters plot to conquer the world and reshape it in their image.

The boundaries between the world and the realm of demons are weakening, allowing untold numbers of them to slip through and wreak havoc.

The flame that keeps the metaphysical structure of the world is on its last, dying embers, ready to go out at any moment, kept alive only by the tireless work of the dragons.

Elections are taking place for the head seat on the Sintral ans Hempf Kakales Dondari ("Island of Hope" community government)

Riots are taking place in Quebéo as the SAHKD in Sintral ans Hempf has cut down exports of economy to most of the smaller private government businesses and practically all "public-sector" (or nearest equivalent) businesses/services which is causing quite large economic "traffic" for big traders, etc.

A certain Mex male and his small unit of mercenaries is currently ploughing their way through knee deep snow to slay a group of Dvoen demons and their human kin. The result will be a long, if not very active, war between Mex Isolationists and the Dvoen natives, with integrated Mex getting shit from both factions.

Gera, a mercenary general serving Great Narem, ruler of the Kingdom of Apsec, successfully conquered the river city of Hajstes in under a week, with less than eight hundred blades; the latest and most important conquest in Great Narem's campaign against the northern barbarians (although Hajstes was a trading outpost that ended up becoming a major colony of Attos until the Colonial Revolution).
Gera gave the Tojnero, King of Hajstes an ultimatum; kill his sons, or his people would be killed or enslaved. When Tojnero picked up his sword, his eldest son Antao attacked Gera, who fought back and, when he had a blade to Antao's throat, gave another choice; kill his father, King Tojnero, or his brother would be killed and his people enslaved.
Now Gera is taking Antao to Apsec, where Great Narem will decide what to do with him.

And a voodoo-necrophilia-cult has infiltrated the Council of Attos.

On Hra, there is peace. "Ground" was just broken on a new bubble city, which will be aimed at bridging the gap between the cultures of the "civilized" hra'vakh and the "savage" Tribals. But it is a rather unpopular venture, and many citizens voted for a royal pay cut. But the measure passed by a majority of 76%-24%, with the primary approval coming from the more socially liberal north-side chieftains. The Ipf'akh herself was outspoken against the ideas proposed for the new city's by-laws despite her Tribal heritage.

On Kellenes, there is a coup taking place. The ruling dracon clan is trying to slaughter the dissenting clan, but the dissenters are winning.

Not much is happening on Xaris. Life there will be pretty quiet until the humans show up in about 60 years.

I can give quite a detailed history of my conworld up until about the time I started working on it in depth (eight or ten years ago). But after that it all gets quite vague. This is something I keep telling myself I need to rectify.

In the Twelve Dukedoms (name subject to change), the natives are just beginning to re-domesticate dragons brought to their continent by an as yet unknown colonizing empire taking up the mineral-rich lands east of the Dukedoms' eastern frontier for their burgeoning proto-industry.
Meanwhile, the constant wars between the dukes, which are not being halted by the Council of Dukes as they should be, have some groups planning a revolution.

In an earlier time in the Dragon Empire (name subject to change), supporters of the old House Leongraft, divested of title and holdings about fifty years ago during a civil war over the throne, are plotting a coup to overthrow the son of the victor who abolished the House of Leongraft, Arnon son of Mirenon of the Imperial House of Lassigal.
The Leongrafts have the loyalty of nationalists from the newer provinces, to whom they have promised (falsely) to restore their lands, and of many of the newer members of the Dragon Corps and other military divisions; however, the not inconsiderable "old guard" of the Imperial Military as well as many of a new breed of provincial nonworking class in the Capital will fall firmly on the side of the current Imperial House for maintaining the system which has brought their prosperity. The lower classes of the empire are unaware and will likely be divided, even apathetic, if it comes to open war.

In the archipelago of mages, anti-mage sentiment is in a period of growth, and a radical anti-mage society called the Knights of Luca intend to sabotage the local Core-stones, ancient stationary power-storing devices used by mages for most major spells.

Ilia: A presidential election is underway. With the popular current president, Elér Matjác, deciding not to run for a second term, the field is seen as wide open and the outcome relatively uncertain. Should no candidate achieve an absolute majority in the first round, the two candidates with the highest percentage of the popular vote, in addition to any others who polled a minimum of 25%, will advance to a second round. With two candidates, a simple majority voting system will be used; otherwise, an STV system will be employed.

Having qualified to stand for election in the first round by meeting the petition/sponsorship requirements are the following candidates:
·Lúcjon Pílgor (50) - Ranking member of the National Assembly. Sponsored by the Socialist People's Party (YSZ).
·Canne Merýc (53) - Ranking member of the National Assembly and current Leader of the Opposition. Sponsored by the National Democratic Party (DLZ) and the Ilian-Telemor Union (YTZ).
·Ivór Hoqjolk (42) - University professor and mayor of Volodjino. Sponsored by the Environmental Green Party (SVZ) and the Citizens' Victory Party (CTZ).
·Gulzun Iljómófic (45) - Leader of the Movement for a Better Ilia (MYM) and sponsored by that party.
·Olivjuro Púlqjok (25) - Student at University of Mámja and activist. Sponsored by the Young Ilians' Movement (ECM).
·Andréje Vérqek (39) - Current mayor of Mámja. Not sponsored by any party.
·Yvyza Malcjar (49) - Businessman. Not sponsored by any party.
·Borút Piconov (65) - President of Ilia from 1048 to 1058; lecturer at the University of Dymỹtremágrde. Not sponsored by any party.

Current polls for the first round read as follows:
Pílgor: 19.71%
Merýc: 19.38%
Hoqjolk: 13.22%
Iljómófic: 7.04%
Púlqjok: 2.90%
Vérqek: 10.15%
Malcjar: 4.81%
Piconov: 17.55%
Undecided: 5.24%
And I'll dance with you in Vienna,
I'll be wearing a river's disguise;
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thigh...

(HyPry) Gallifrey:
Everyone is still dead and/or locked in perpetual war. The Doctor isn't going to have a species-wide reunion any time soon.

(Evelēranēl) Alcrakia:
The generation ship Dundedovà of the seventh fleet has elected to remain in rapid orbit around Sol for the time being. The momentum and constant change in perspective is enough to quell their migratory instincts for some time while the High Council meets to figure out how to deal with the relatively new problem of the living embodiment of chaos itself, which appears to have manifested in the general area.
The rest of the seventh fleet is drifting in the Local Interstellar Cloud with its council ship Efekālín (minus the seventh fleet's council member himself, as he's currently reside on the Dundedová out of convenience). The other eight fleets are set in various places relative to the Local Bubble, near enough to provide easy transport for their off-ship council members (as it's not practical to host holographic meetings at distances beyond a light year or so, and so the council is meeting in person.)

In other news, the legal age for a Faster-Than-Light-Travel permit has been lowered to thirty, causing a rather large uproar among older residents of the generation ships who think it unwise to entrust youngsters with the ability to slip across solar systems at ungodly speeds. The youngsters in question are very happy about it.

Some still believed that there were survivors from the bursting of Anphorea; and though this expedition was funded for the search and rescue of these individuals, the truth is Viktor's passions lay in finding new worlds and wonders.

The known Bubbleverse is about to discover the Diamond Drones.

Since my conworld was created, about 5000 years ago, the local language underwent many changes, that resulted in great differences in orthography and pronunciation. Therefore, in my main conworld, Mem-Lingis (meaning "Without Entrance"), a reform is going on to change the names of the cities accordingly. For example, the prehistoric city name Ṽßenberk (ancient Fyussemberk, modern Fyussembêrk) became the contemporary Fjusemberk (we can point out four periods in the language's history).

About politics, the current chief of the executive, Cekkom Sjuaerte (/dʒɛ'kɔm 'ʃwarte/, NB), has just been re-elected after his first 6 years of government; its opponent, Manheqqi Jlihean (/mǝn'hɛxi ʒli'han/), got 35 million votes against the 55 millions of Sjuaerte.

A war is about to be declared against Owitjors, an adjacent country, to get the region of the Totterra (/tɔ.'tɛra/) cape back in Mem-Lingis, from which it was taken in L.Y. (local year) 4879.

The Humans and Haevian people of Ecile are signing 'L'Cie Teccinrissema' or the People Recognition. They agree to mutually recognize and send diplomats to each others planet. Meanwhile, the Ecilian Union agrees to a new budget supporting Catholic missions further, defense against the city-states, and a possible declaration of war to wipe the states off the face of the planet with US missiles. The Union has also further denounced the city-states and denies hits on major leaders.

And, Hillary Clinton is set to arrive in a state visit with the Federal President of the Ecilian Union of Confederations. She will make this in part of the final tour of the known worlds before leaving office. Some months later, the Pope will celebrate High Mass at the Federal Cathedral of the agricultural Kaapame (acute over last e) Confederation, being called the Workers' Mass. (Kaapame meaning Bread)

The new year is also set to change, becoming 899 ECA in about six months. [:P]

Sefir and Chyffelb war is the most interesting modern part. The two nations are fighting due to border disputes. Pazmat kind of fucked up when they gave Chyffelb too much land when they seceeded.

Pazmat is throwing their hands in the air and saying "not our problem", Ngith is providing weapons to both sides for sheer economic profit, Kron is sadly shaking their hands, Foxro is trying to intervene, and Cryset is too busy freezing to death to really care.

Also, on my world, the empire is enjoying a climate of relative peace and wealth, a flourishing of art and literature, and an inevitable moral decline is right around the corner.

I just expanded on my post above. This is how the whole shebang started:

Chyffelb was a small nation of celtic/nordic-esque people on Thooselqat, who had been captured by the country of Pazmat. Eventually, they wanted to become their own country. Pazmat agreed, and even set aside some space for them as reperations for enslaving them against their will.

However, Pazmat accidently had given the Chyffelb some land that belonged to the soviergn nation of Sefir (the Sefir are a lightly dark-skinned people who descend from the same nomadic tribes as the Paz--Pazmat and Sefir normally are on good terms with each other). Sefir was, understandably, annoyed. They bitched to Pazmat about that but they got only "not our problem" in return.

In the meanwhile, the Chyffelb were enjoying their new freedom quite heavily. In the city of Szyrk, a city located where the border of Sefir and Chyffelb overlapped, there was a particulary large festival going on. The Sefir who had lived there before were so enraged at seeing the Chyffelb celebrate what they (the Sefir) viewed as invasion that a race riot broke out. 200 Chyffelb and 150 Sefir were killed. Chyffelb, enraged at this, immediately arrested every single Sefir who has participated in the riots (about 600) and deported them to the main capital of Eddgwrn. There, they were supposed to be tried as criminals, but the people transporting them took matters a little TOO far into their own hands. The man in charge of deportation, Eddarth Qwdd, a Chyffelb Nationalist who held Chyffelb supremacy beliefs, had the military execute all the prisoners.

Obviously, Sefir was enraged at this. Chyffelb's then-president, a woman named Qeci Wallay, had Qwdd tried in military court and sentenced to life in prison, but Sefir ended up retatliating anyway--by bombing Eddgwrn flat, killing well over 500,000 innocent people in the process.

Of course, Chyffelb was rather pissed at the complete over-reaction (especially since the executions that prompted the bombing weren't even sanctioned by the damn government in the first place, they were performed by a nazi-esque nutjob). They responded by declaring war on Sefir. The latter looked to Pazmat for aid but they simple replied "you got yourselves into this". Sefir then decided to declare war on Chyffelb.

The news of the war was all over Thooselqat newspapers, but most of the other nations on the planet did not support any one side. Most condemned the war, except for a country of Kron, who supported the Chyffelb due to having also been once enslaved and then freed by Pazmat. Sefir then declared war on Kron too.

If this continues, Thooselqat may find itself embroiled into a world war...

A volcanic eruption has managed to spread a lethal fungal spore over half of the island. This fungus attacks the human body from the inside (via the lungs) and has the end result of the body being frozen in place as the organs are replaced with a spongy growth. It takes about 7 days for the full effect to occur. Before then the victim will display erratic behavior, extreme itchiness and will compulsively head towards higher altitudes.
