- John Gough: Was recruited by Alpha in early 2010 and went on to found the Kingdom of Savoy, which served as the spark that set off the Grand Power/Värmland Empire - Prussian Coalition War. Later, while serving as a Prince of Prussia, he unintentionally acted as an instigator of the war that led to Prussia's defeat of The Last Romans. It was around this time that he co-founded the first Lord of the Rings role-play with Hambles before it ended due to lack of interest. Shortly after, he did a brief stint in the first, though short-lived Star Wars role-play as a Sith Lord. During the Coalition-Prussia/SPQR War, he was serving as the Prince of Cambridge in English Empire where he was responsible for organizing the British war effort in the latter days of the conflict. Following the war, John went on to re-establish Star Wars role-play and manage its most successful period, which lasted for almost a year. A few months after Star Wars role-play ceased, he went on to co-found the first Halo role-play with Casey Rogers and they successfully managed it for several months before lack of time forced them to give it up. It was while managing these two role-plays that he developed the character application and most of the rules for chat-based role-play on Steam, both of which are still in use.
It was around this time that he founded .:|The United States of America|:., the community's first self-sufficient, dedicated American group, which he managed for several months. Over the course of his role-playing career, John maintained good relations with the more powerful players, some of whom he still maintains friendships with. He retired in 2014, occasionally coming out of it to try his hand at Star Wars role-play again. Recently he came out of retirement to participate in the community as it seemingly begins to slowly come together again.
Imperator Caesar/YovillianRoyal/Gaius - Founder of TRE & ERE, after given TRE by Andrew from the Germanic Empire; Caesar who once served Marc Antony faithfully was betrayed in the 2011 wars which soon erupted into a Roman Civil war known as the great Roman divide. No clear winner was ever decided, it was however Caesar who used the most bizarre tactics to achieve a form of ultimate victory by reporting the information to the FSU clan that SPQR was attempting to abuse their name and image for dominance. Faced with the threat of war from FSU, the SPQR republic soon surrendered and withered out. TRE would last three more years before succumbing to a treacherous end by a snake in the grass. In that time the great AWN wars also known as the Great Alliance was formed. Eventually AWN as a whole saw TRE as a major threat and began a massive war against the empire, one by one however each nation in AWN soon fell to the might of Rome as Caesar was no fool and had allied with major powerhouses from TNC & FSU clans. Caesar had cleverly calculated his tactics and had recruited elite mercenaries to fight along the wars, crushing the enemies one by one. Eventually AWN fell into ruin by the end of war after it lasted several months and TRE would eventually die of old age and betrayal. Caesar & Marc Antony eventually came to a peace agreement and terms were made by the hand of Marc Antony to discuss a Roman alliance, unknowingly with TLR as Augustus of TLR was brought in to discuss proper deals. All three parties agreed however it later became apparent that TLR was only interested in claiming power and eventually SPQR & TRE both declared war upon TLR for breaking treaties of the Triumvirate and attacking.
-Marcus Antonius-Founder of Council of Nations and SPQR. It was under CoN that the community became hyper-organized (some would say too organized) with over 300 groups united under 1 banner. Also renowned for, at least for a time, finally ending the disputes on which Roman group was the "genuine one" in the community through the establishment of SPQR. Also formed the great Roman Triumvirate with TRE & TLR, until TLR broke the treaty.
-Celticus-Most recent member of the community to hold the de facto title of "most powerful member of the community," is known for his ongoing efforts to bring groups back into the community and have existing groups engage in discourse (wars and interactions) with each other instead of focusing on internal roleplay.

Nicholas II(Aka. Kronzprinz Adalbert) - Introduced to steam roleplay in 2010 by Alpha(Wilhelm II) of the Prussian Empire as the first Prinz of that group. After a time in Prussia he left, owning several successful and some unsuccessful groups until returning to the Prussian Empire near the beginning of the time of Kanzler Andrew. After returning he was quickly elevated to Kronprinz and regent in the absence of Alpha and headed the group with Andrew which lead to Prussia's first ever constitution. After many months in Prussia he again left due to political issues and created The Russian Empire as Nicholas II which he headed in the last days of CoN and into the days of AWN where he was overseer of tier 2 for many months. He left the community shortly after AWN fell apart. During his time in RP he pioneered several concepts that roleplayers still use to this day(Such as colonization and maps while serving Prussia) and also founded, though it quickly failed, the first Star Wars roleplay with Kronz and Maximilian, and helped lead several Star Wars roleplay attempts later.
