History of Gaia


Grace of Gaia was founded on 25 February 2019, by the joint Founder-Sovereigns -Tulov, Club Lux, and Arudis. Over a period of several months, Grace of Gaia was steadily built up and readied for release, finally opening its doors on 1 August 2019. The pre-release members of Gaia are Rangers of the Grey (25 February), Renaria- (14 March), Synnes Hanyia (25 March), Meadina (26 May), Limfjordia (21 July), and Rhyme and Reason (31 July). Grace of Gaia was founded primarily as a roleplaying region, but with a strong emphasis on being relaxed, laid back, and having fun. Over time, Grace of Gaia has grown and further developed its many branches, with events such as Grace of Gaia Halloween Festival ~ '19, the creation of the World Assembly Endorsement Program , and the continued expansion and developments of the Nation RP, including a readily growing pool of resources.
