This Continent Was Reduced to a nuclear wasteland by The Scimitar's Radiation Cannon on 2/5/13. When it happened, a massive nuclear explosion occured from the cannon, destroying the entire continent and leaving it lifeless. Fortunatly, the campaign in northrend had already ended and all forces from armies all over earth 2 had withdrew.
On November 19th, 2013. The Republic Of Minecraft restored and decontaminated the continent and left settlers on the continent and granted them independance, forming The Republic of Arcetia.

There are plenty of native settlements around the tundra, mostly Allied, but some are native and have let the allies come into their villages for supplies and such.
