Location

Main article: Erfworld Geography

Firstpost has no coastline, nor mountains. It's geographically hemmed in by crowd of small sides warring over eight or nine little city sites among lakes and farms and grassy plains.

Firstpost shares a border with Squashcourt to the southeast. It also borders Tapwater and Protip. It is near but not bordering Bullyclub, somewhere to it's south.

History

Before the Union

Firstpost warred with it's neighbors Squashcourt, Tapwater and Protip over control of eight or nine small city sites. It kept to a strategy of holding two level five cities close together and letting the other cities be shuffled around in the various conflicts -- "traded and raided, razed and rebuilt—in an endless game of deals and dust-ups."{{ref|[[WB2014 Lord Crush - Part 1]}}

Union Conference

Sixteen hundred turn ago the four sides came together in a conference to try and hash out an Alliance to reduce conflict and allow them to prosper. The conference was highly contentious and full of outbursts from the delegates. After a dozen turns they established the So-be-it Union, limiting the size of each side's army and binding them into mutual defense. It included provisions for the betrayal of a side. Thanks to the treaty Firstpost (and the union as a whole) have had a long time of prosperity.

Bullyclub would twice interrupt the peace brought by the So-Be-It Union by warring with it. Both wars were unprofitable for all involved and ended in armistices.
