The Great Empire was one of many groups active in the early pre_CoN total war community. Although Vinther is renowned in today's community for being the leader of Falleentium, it is a far less known fact that TGE was his first great achievement. At its height, the group was the largest non-Fruition run group in the total war community by direct numbers with nearly 6,000 members registered. Ultimately, it faded into obscurity as Vinther focused mroe and more of his time on Falleentium.
