Name of Faction: Aled Aederyn

Ruler: His Royal Majesty, Emyr Emrys Dor Gwyr, First of His name, King of the Aederfolk, the Volh, and the Kazodich, Scion of Dor, Ithel of Dol Aeyld, etc.

Description of Government: A feudal government with the Emyr (King) at the top, under him are a number of Ithels (Lords), under them are various other minor lordlings. All the lords owe fealty to the Emyr, whom may call upon them in times of need.

Government Type: Feudal Kingdom

Population: Just over a million humans, and roughly a tenth that number of various other races.

Military numbers: At maximum roughly fifty thousand men may be called to fight, but when at peace there are fewer than four thousand standing soldiers and retinues.

Military outline: Aled Aederyn’s military quality varies anywhere from modern pike and archer formations to pitchfork wielding mobs, and everywhere in-between. Typically the richest fiefs, like Dol Blathanna and Dol Caemlyn, field the best equipped levies, and oftentimes employ mercenaries or possess sizeable retinues of skilled warriors. On the other side of the spectrum the poorer fiefs field mobs or lightly equipped infantry best fit for skirmishing.

Languages: Aeder, Volhnian, Kazod, and of course Imperial

History: The Aederfolk are not native to Alcenia. Instead, in times immemorial, a demon forced the Aederfolk to flee their homeland to the east and come to their present day location. In three great waves the Aederfolk settled first in the fertile Sodden riverlands on the tip of the Peninsula. Then in the Elenydd plains to the North. Finally the last, and smallest, wave settled on the many small islands in the Bay of Dagonach. These three groups of settlers came sometime after the founding of the Empire.

However, they had competition. Two other tribes had long ago settled the area, locked in an eternal feud. It wasn’t until the arrival of the Aederfolk did a truce be made between the two tribes, the Volhs and Kazodich. But, the Aederfolk were nothing if not crafty. Soon, the Aederfolk were able to convince the Volhs to break their truce, and with the help of the Aederfolk, crush the Kazodich. The Aederfolk let the Volhs do much of the fighting, weakening themselves, but in the end the Kazodich were forced to flee into the mountain ranges in the center of the peninsula. With the Kazodich taken care of, and the Volhs weakened, the Aederfolk broke their alliance with the Volh and subjugated them.

Their victory was short lived, however. The three tribes, without a common enemy, fragmented into three separate political entities, each ruled by a Lord known as an Ithel. The Volh were able to free themselves in the confusion and migrated west to lick their wounds. For many years the Aederfolk fought many wars against one another, until finally the Empire arrived to subjugate and conquer them. Once again having a common enemy, the Aederfolk set aside their differences and united to fight off the Empire. Despite having the home advantage, the Imperial army was too many and too experienced. It wasn’t long before the Aederfolk’s home was converted into just another province in the great Imperial patchwork.

The Aederfolk and their previous enemies, the Volh and Kazodich, were able to retain their cultural identity, but they toiled under the oppressive Imperial regime. It wasn’t until the Sundering that the Dor Gwyr dynasty, hailing from Sodden, was able to break the chains of their imprisonment. Utilizing queer sorceries and proto-guerilla tactics, did Gwynn Dor Gwyr topple the local Imperial government. Under his leadership, the three tribes were finally united into a single entity. Taking the name of his dynasty’s progenitor, Gwynn created the title of Emyr, or King.

Since those days of old, the Dor Gwyr family has ruled Aled Aederyn and expanded it to include much of the peninsula. The Volh and Kazodich have been reintegrated into Aled Aederyn as vassals, and the Emyr now sets his sights beyond the Peninsula.

Religion: The farther west in Aled Aederyn you get, the more people you will find who follow the Imperial Pantheon. But, by and large the most practiced faith is that of the Paragons. Human heroes, especially those of the olden times when the world was younger, are able to gain enough veneration and worship that they are imbued with magical power in death, becoming almost godlike. In times of great need, and with enough faith, they are able to return to earth as spectral beings for short periods of time. In essence, the worship of these Paragons is a form of ancestor worship.

Races:
Majority - Aederfolk, Volhs, Kazodich (Humans)
Minority - Durognar (Dwarves), Aen Rhai (Elves), Avvar (Giants)

Capital City: Dol Aelyd

Land Controlled: The peninsula in the Southeast.

Allies: Virtually none.

Enemies: Just about everyone except other Humans.


Only a few choice comments, For the rest you are allowed to post.

*You can up the population to between 1 and 2~3 million ish normally, but the region you inhabit is a cold land, good for defense, but difficult for a booming population. So around the 1 to 2 million population would be fine.

* Your race is ordinary human, which is not an issue, but if they are from a land further east, perhaps a description of differences physical or otherwise would be interesting. If the minorities are present in the army or have a meaningful presence in the nation, i'd like a small description of them aswel. It can be a full race-app if you want. For reference of that you can check the 2 races I gave as examples on page 1.

*Keep the military, including levies, around the 1 to 2/3 percent mark. You can have a choice 1 or 2% of retinues across the nation.

*If desired you can give the military or nation as a whole a bit more fantasy flair, others have, often in the form of military advantages. So outside of the religious spectral warriors, you can add a Medieval-Fantasy vibe to the army if desired.

*The penninsula south-east lies in the southern taiga/pine forests of Alcenia. That region is frosty and can be described as norwegian/swedish in climate. It would have been on the furthest fringe of Imperial territory, on account that the Taiga woods to the south have some nasty beasties in general. Albeit it can be explained away that the ancestors of your people settled down, carved out a stable region perfect for the Empire to conquer.

So, seems like things are slowing down a bit.

I keep people posted on the discord... I suppose I should do it on the OOC, but it seems a bit over the top to announce that I have had a busy week. Work has been kicking my ass. I should be able to get a post up today or tommorow, But I need sword of Kav to post before the Mercin arc can continue.

Ok sounds good. I really do get people being busy with real life. Was just beginning to wonder if this was slowly dying, because that would be a shame. I'll post once I have something for my characters to react to, and once the Mercin arc moves a bit further forward.

Didn't manage to post for AoBaF today :( But I'll make it up with advancing as much as I can. Mercin, Vindelicorum, Jurnmeir, Erundir and whatever else. If you have other requests what I should post tommorow, hit me up.

Yeah I'm making my post now.
I'm a damn fool, asking me anything is like asking a brick wall the meaning of life. I don't know anything and will never know anything for that is my meaning on this Earth.
Also, to all who roleplay with me. Please understand that I will break the rules, goddmod, complain, break friendships, and will cause nothing but chaos for everyone. So please, if you see me make an app in your RP, reject it automatically and banned me from ever being in that RP. It will be safe for everyone for I am cancer, and cancer must be isolated and destroyed.

Should anyone wish that I am just seeking attention for pity bullshit, you are right. Therefore please don't send any TGs about asking if this a prank, trolling, or anything of the like. Any rationals you come up for my behavior are all true.
