King Gyassale declared that he would recapture the Ivory Coast for the Baule Empire and after some victories his people will follow his megalomanic visions enthusiastically. He desperately fights to archive a direct corridor to the coast/sea for his Empire but the smaller ethnic nations of the pirates of the coast block the way. Most time his forces wage war against the Anyi Lands - a nation composed of the orks and trolls of the old Aniy tribe and of Baule that goblinisized since 2022. He makes great use of human, elf and dwarf mercenaries, paying in Ivory and body parts of paranatural critters. While non-Baule in the occupied territories are only second class citizens he doesn't make them slaves, they keep their homes and he is not known to order mass executions or torture. On the other hand he is known for utilisizing large amounts of napalm and herbicides to destroy enemy territories.

In 2063 the Baule Empire is not only recognized as a country by the United Nations, but has also archived a non-permanent seat at the Security Council of the United Nations.


Climate: tropical along coast, semiarid in far north; three seasons - warm and dry (November to March), hot and dry (March to May), hot and wet (June to October).

Terrain: mostly flat to undulating plains; mountains in northwest.


Corporate Presence[]

  • Saeder-Krupp sells huge amounts of weapons to both sides of the Baule-Anyi-war and Ares Arms Africa, a subsidiary of Ares Macrotechnology, does the same.
  • Aztech's «The Battle Channel» makes big nuyen broadcasting the newest trideo pics from the Baule-Anyi-war in every living room around the 6th World - they call it infotainment.
