Non-Player City-States


The Wastelanders
Denizens of the frozen north, east and in the cold tundra farther than even the Zhou live, the Wastelanders worship a god of ice and snow and raid down into the fertile lands of the Zhou, Fergal, and Xcotl upon occasion. Those few traders who venture to their wild encampment say the wild warriors are few in number and live in primitive hide tents, but their keen bronze arms and militant nature have made them a worthy foe for any they come against despite their relative lack of civilization.
1000 Citizens - 300 Soldiers, 100 Scholars, 200 Artisans, 200 Slaves, 500 Peasants

Fergdal
Soft lowland riverfolk, living in a large city upon the banks of the large river that flows north from the places of Xcotl to end in the Western Ocean near the Zhou. The bountiful riches of the Fergdal are known far and wide, their gemcutters clever and their works much valued, defended by a thick stone wall from the worse of the Wastelander raids and those who might covet their riches. These walls, though, are said to be much of the protection of the city, and their guards relatively poorly trained.
1100 Citizens - 200 Soldiers, 100 Artisans, 100 Scholars, 700 Peasants

Shoval
A growing state not far afield from the lands of Cadmus, the Shoval are the outcasts and renegades of that city, united by little save their hatred of the elites who drove them with spear and sword away from the lands of their birth when they clamored for equality and opportunity. Behind their thick wooden walls they bide their time, often launching raids against the coast-dwellers from their fastness, sustained by vast herds of gazelles and acres of wild wheat. Their skirmishers are widely respected for their skill, and occasionally hired out as merchant guards traveling towards the Zhou and Fergdal lands. Annexed by the Xcotl by force.

Gergan
A small settlement of trappers, tanners, and jewlers, Gergan, or the Palinate as her folk prefer to call her, is a thriving but labor-poor city. Notable for the slaves that walk her streets, forced there by strict laws about class and wealth, Gergan lies north around the Spine Mountains from the Serin lands, and is protected by a sturdy wooden palisade. Her military is small but remarkably professional, and supplemented by slave-soldiers give the chance to win their freedom in the fires of war. They trade in many opulent goods, particularly northern emeralds, and are known for their Gem-Sorcerers.
1800 Citizens - 300 Soldiers, 200 Scholars, 100 Artisans, 400 Slaves, 100 Freemen, 700 Peasants

Maelon
An isolated settlement, high in what they call the Mother Mountains, the Maelon are a hardy but suspicious folk, slow to trust and primitive, but doughty. Their homes are hewn from the mountainside, and though they are not many in number, their skill with stonework and masonry far surpasses that of most lowlanders. Located many leagues from their only trade partners, the Serin people in the far east, their graven goods of wood and rock are much in demand, and their warriors look down on intermittent trading caravans with hard eyes- but, so far, the gates of the mountain fastness have always remained open, under the Great Spirit.
1200 Citizens - 200 Soldiers, 100 Scholars, 200 Artisans, 100 Freemen, 600 Peasants

The Freehold of Brexonburn
Nestled in the enfolding arms of the Spine Mountains, the people of Brexonburn are of the same kindred of those in Saladonia, but hold themselves in pride for not worrying about the political factions, infighting, and blood honor of their more hidebound kin. Embracing a more libertine lifestyle in the hills and vales of the Spine, they are mainly foresters and farmers, though their bowmen are not to be despised. Despite the differences, they are on good turns with the Republic.

Organizations


Delisle and Sons


Leader: Cecil Delisle

History: Originally of Gergan, the Delisle family was forced to move from place to place following their exodus from their homeland. Since then they've grown accustomed to continuously being on the go. After working as traders for several generations, the patriarch of the Delisle family at the time, Einar Delilse, decided to begin documenting the various lands he passed through. Einar's son, Vimme believed he could make a business out of the knowledge his family had gathered over the years and opened an office in the city of Serys. Since then, the Delisle family has been operating out of Serys, charting maps, formulating the most efficient trade routes, and aiding in the establishment of settlments.

The Shambling Legion of Ulm Bahadur


Leader: Kadan Ulm Bahadur

History: Something is a-rot within Xcotl. One of their dark-mages have grown distraught with his position in Xcotl society as a whole. Whatever the reason for his hysterical state, he seeks to strike out on his own to carve out his own ambitions in this world, and to expand his know-how of the art of the dead. Deep in the night, the man traveled from Xcotl to the battlefields of old in the desert. Using the secrets of the dark-arts, he managed to rise a small band of restless zombies and skeletons - nothing fancy. The high-priests of Xcotl quickly got wind of his shenanigans but instead of punishing him, they offered him a job of mercenary work. Kadan happily accepted the offer.

The Chrysí Aspída


Leader: Apostolos Rellas

History: The Chrysí Aspída were founded by traveling warriors around the city-state of Cadmus to act as mercenaries for traders. They were founded by Chrysíva Garius who acted as Supreme Commander, and after his death, the new Commander, Enzis Bacar, created the Council of Veteránoi to advise him on what would be best for the Chrysí Aspída. The Chrysí Aspída also accepted nearby tribesmen into their fold to act as guides to traders who were unfamiliar with the terrain and increased the Chrysí Aspída's wealth. They're still active near Cadmus and have attempted to set up a guild trade post near Cadmus, but failed.

The Legion of Mithras


Leader: Mithras Karaunos ("Mithras the Thunderer") an experienced slaver, raised in Gergan and trained in the city's professional guard, with a lifetime's experience of combat and command. Famed for his furious rages, and for the whip-scar across his one clouded eye.

History: The Palinate of Gergan, city of jewels and furs, is rich, but under-populated, and it has been for decades. The solution to this problem was worked out quickly; to take workers from elsewhere as slaves. Slaves work much of the Palinate's industry, as they have for generations, bought from other cities and from travelling slavers. Only recently has the city's expansion neccessitated a more aggressive approach. The market cannot supply the Palinate with all the slaves it requires, but the barbarians of the north, and the uncivilized peoples of the world remain at large, and for the taking. Seeing the need of his city for labour, and the opportunity presented by the disorganised tribes, a young soldier named Mithras, from a newly wealthy family, set about organising his fellow soldiers, in their months of leave, to enter into slaving expeditions into the mountains and hills.

From there, Mithas' operation only grew, with slaves being sold in greater and greater number, until he had raised sufficient funds to break with the army of Gergan, and to arm his own company, comprised of eager young recruits, mercenaries, and his old companions. Soon enough, other settlements sought out the slavers, until Mithras' legion were a well known fixture of the Spine Mountains and the surrounding lands, and their raids were well feared by the folk of the wilderness. Under Mithras Karaunos, the legion seeks to expand it's reach, and its wealth, and to drill itself into a truly formidable force, deserving of the name.

The Poor Fellow-Soldiers, known too as the Vulgate or Popular Revolutionary, and the Righteous Creed


Leader: Ny-Ka 'the Slave'

History: The Poor Fellow-Soldiers is a recent development, byproduct and bastard of the dread Midnight Horde, one of many bands of bandits, brigands, raiders and revolutionaries prowling the war torn hinterlands of civilization in the wake of its destroyers. Unlike many, however, those of the Righteous Creed claim higher aspirations. Their founder, prophet, warlord and living voice of the Gods, Ny-Ka, was but a simple serf prior to the obliteration of his master's estate in the outerskirts of Honori territory. His God saved Ny-Ka from the bloody sack and taking of slaves which followed, and amidst the burning, screeching ruins of his home, granted the humble serf revelation.

The dread horde, he realized, was the culmination of centuries of sin, the very incarnation of the evil created, nurtured and maintained by the wicked rulers of man, fed by the despair and fear of the oppressed, aided by the malevolent intentions and weak decadence of the thousand-Gods that held sway over humanity, and of the darker gods that tempted with fell powers of necromancy and promises of immortality. And so was born the ultimate expression of the desires and acts of the corpulent few that claimed ownership and sovereignty over man - a monstrous army of demons, driven by desire for power, enslaving or killing all they came across and forcing men to bend to their dark will, a horde the thousand-Gods cannot stop. Only the God who saved Ny-Ka, a true and benevolent God, righteous, just and without name, truly has the interests of all man and civilization at heart - the Slave-God of duty.

The Slave-God is no corrupt, cruel and capricious overlord, like his thousand-brothers or their chosen, who are just as likely to bestow upon righteous man boons as they are to strike him down, and who conspire in truth only to greater power, in planes both mortal and heavenly. In fact, he is no overlord at all, but a simple slave - a great and powerful servant, bound to and property of justice and commonwealth, his servants sworn to the same ideal. Justice - true Justice, not the simpering arbitrary justice of the states - is not easy to summarize in short, and much of it's finer intricacies and nature is lost upon all but the Slave-God's chosen, but at it's core, Justice is the right of each man to live and thrive - from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs in everything from responsibility to food and land. Justice is the freedom of every man to do what they best can, regardless of birth, origins, or even gender - slavery, kings, serfdom, merchantmen, all are anathema to Justice.

It is the ideal of Justice that the Poor Fellow-Soldiers, of equality and freedom for all men, fight for, or at least claim to. These last few years they have wandered the war-torn country, raiding and robbing what they could, "reappropriating" and "liberating" wealth from what trade caravans, villages and bands of enemies they can fall upon. They have too, however, been freeing those slaves they come across, feeding the hungry hordes of refugees they come across when their larders permit it, defending those same groups of refugees and peasants from the bands of bandits and deserters prowling the hinterlands. To every group of deserters, refugees and bandits (those that do not attack them immediately or flee) they preach the Righteous Creed, proselytizing to and attempting to recruit any able bodied man (or woman) ready and willing to fight for their cause (and 3 square meals). They have taken to tailing, from a safe distance, of course, the main force of the great Midnight Horde, both aiding and setting upon the men and settlements left in it's wake.

Memories


[b]Cadmus

Description: A large city-state once sited along the coast of the Western Ocean, Cadmus was a place of great monumental architecture and enlightenment but considerable poverty. Ruled wisely, and noted for its fertile hillside farms on the cliffs above the white marble that was emblematic of its city-scape, Cadmus was nonetheless troubled in her ascent from a tribe by not only drastic overpopulation and the strife that went with that age of disorder, but was struck by an immense storm and tidal wave many generations ago, a disaster from which she was slow to recover. Once she held a small settlement to the southeast, but after a period of stagnation and social strife she was conquered by soldiers from the Stalheim Hierarchy in the year 355, bringing an end to the Republic and People of Cadmus.

The Chosen of Neferkara


Founded in the Kingdom of Aslani and exiled shortly after, the Chosen are an arcane and priestly faction seeking to further the knowledge of necromancy and other magics. Having wandered around the known world a while before settling into Saladonia, many other city-states have some opinion regarding the Chosen and their activities. To this end they plan on aiding their unlikely allies by providing arcane knowledge and assistance to further grow the small city-state into a powerful kingdom to rival Aslani. After many generations of life in the safety of Saladonia, aiding those people and surviving the depredations of the Midnight Horde, the leadership of the Chosen led their followers east, seizing the undefended Serrin city of Sarfuth. After a climatic battle accompanied by a fell ritual, the Chosen were no more, slain in combat by soldiers from the south or their lives consumed by the reawakening of their former master, the Liche-Priest Neferkara. Only some dozens survived, fleeing north into the Spine Mountains, where they were seen no more...

The Many Mothers of Fastaqui


Description: A relatively large city-state founded in a marshland delta by a sea, the folk of Fastaqui live in stilt-houses near fertile farm fields, subsiding on the bounty of amber washed upon the shores of their delta from the endless ocean. War-wearied but unbroken, they are not as they once were.

Settlements:
Fastaqui | 2300 Citizens - 300 Scholars, 300 Artisans, 200 Explorers, 100 Soldiers, 1400 Peasants | Military: Conscripts | Public Order: Decent | Resources: Amber, Quinoa, Copper, Granite | Land: 10 Riverland, 5 Coastal, 5 Hills | Stockpile: Wealth VII, Industry 1, Copper Ore 2, Amber 1, Quartz 0, Stone 1.

Current Situation, Year 367 CE, Turn 22:
Food shortages - fortunately, starvation is averted en masse. (Wealth II)
300 Scholars: Through bribes and cajoling, and a deeper understanding of the beasts that haunt their homes, the Crones of Fastaqui have begun to truly domesticate the camels of the west - though they are loathe to breed in the conditions of the swamplands so far from their desert homes, a native population is beginning to take shape.

-Wealth II | Southeast of Fastaqui the land of the marshes peters away, replaced by humid but dry woodlands. Trees grow here, budding with red shiny apples good to eat. Low growing gourds also cover the ground in wide leaves, and wild deer range through the forests.

Discoveries:
West of Fastaqui the air grows very dry, and soon an arid scrub-desert unfolds before the wary voyager.
Arid: Scrub-Brush, Saguaro, Camels | 10 Desert, 5 Riverland, 5 Hills

North of Fastaqui, travelers soon come to a great sea which stretches as far as the eye can observe. It teems with fish, but beyond the delta itself mightier craft than mere rafts are needed to explore the region fully.

South of Fastaqui, explorers come across a region of blazing sun and barren rock, sand and scattered stone. Gleaming quartz is in evidence along the river's banks, and papyrus reeds teem in the mud-flats. Arrays of desert vegetables can also be found in the surrounding oases.
Desert (River): Papyrus, Quartz, Desert Vegetables] 10 Riverland, 5 Desert, 5 Hills

East of the lands of the many mothers stretch fertile acres, swamps and rich black soil interspersed with winding tributaries reaching the sea and acres of low forests and grasses. Glittering shards of white rock, covered in prismatic hues, are scattered amidst low hills, and copper veins are also in evidence. A rich nutty-flavored herb which promotes a feeling of wellness and seems capable of healing wounds grows amidst the trees here.
East [Temperate (River, Coast): Shimmerstone, Copper, Medicinal Herbs]

Southeast of Fastaqui the land of the marshes peters away, replaced by humid but dry woodlands. Trees grow here, budding with red shiny apples good to eat. Low growing gourds also cover the ground in wide leaves, and wild deer range through the forests.

(The Kingdom of) Lordaeron


Description: A boisterous city state located at the apex of a warm and welcoming peninsula in the Western Ocean. Mud-daub huts poke out from behind walls of cracked stone fitted into place in a rough defense, clustered on hills away from the waters of the sea. A smaller settlement nestles in the mountains to the north, watching the entrance to the peninsula carefully.

History/Culture:
The History of the people of Lordaeron is strangely intertwined with the northern barbarians known today as The Wastelanders, Centuries ago a tribe of these north men broke off and migrated south west finding the rich warm and well protected peninsula that came to be called Lordearon. I terms of culture the faith of the holy light has replaces many of the negative traits the people had in common with their northern cousins. In terms of language and ethnic makeup however the similarities are very hard to miss. Large in height and body structure, pale in skin, light in hair and eye color if Lordaeron wasn't so well mannered and civilized a merchant caravan or trading ship would be mistaken for a North men raid.

Extra Information.
Users of the Light are divided into three categories, and two organizations.
Clerics - Under the Order of the Silver Hand these blessed individuals who use the light for purley Healing and defensive reasons, they are primarily healers, and supplement the Paladins
Paladins- Fearsome warriors of the Light, They use both defensive and Offensive magic to be a holy weapons against the kingdoms enemy's.
Mages- Under the authority of the Cycle these individuals use the light for purely offensive purposes, a striking sight to see.


Knights of the Silver Hand
Image

Made up of the Clerics and Paladins of the light the Knights are a Militant Holy Order with a scared duty to defend the people of Lorderon and preserve the faith. While the Clerics take the task of spreading the word, feeding the hungry and healing the sick the Paladins route out evil and Defend the weak.

High Cycle of Mages

The Mages of Loderon are organized into the Cycle, while membership is not mandatory any mage of status and skill is a indeed a member.

Tenets of the Light
The first of these tenants was respect, the members of the tribe squabbled and fought sometimes but they always looked past temporary hatred and see qualities to respect and prowess to be acknowledged Conducting oneself with honor and treating one's opponent as one wishes to be treated shows respect. Respecting one's opponents on the field is acknowledging a connection, which brings one closer to the Light.

The second of these tenets is Tenacity, the virtue of persevering through troubling times and painful experiences. In the face of despair and hatred, one must continue to stand true to their beliefs and fight on. Times may be good now but hardship could easily be behind the corner.

Compassion is the last step on the path of the Light. In times of rivalries, it is easy to see differences at every turn. The challenge is in looking beyond appearances and understanding the similarities. Through this understanding, one can feel compassion for the losses others have suffered, even if the victim bears another banner. By feeling and understanding compassion in enemy and ally alike, one reaffirms his or her connection with the world.


Church of the Light
Image

Ranks
Archbishop- Head of the church, appointed among the Cardinals by the king and approved by a council of Cardnils.
Cardinals- Head of their local church district, usually centered on a city.
Bishop- Head of their local church

Imperial Republic of Salli


"Ex cinere patris nostri Vallenian. Salli natus est" - Lord-Imperator Villus Typhus, first of his title.

General Details:
The capital is a crowded city, with a diverse set of peoples. While the unity and leadership is stressed heavily in the citystate, the nation is divided among its diverse cultures. The government is a Senatorial Militaristic Republic, where the families leading the nation are both rich, and have military backgrounds. Once being a citystate spread out among multiple settlements, troublesome times however forced them back into the capital city. The nation enjoys the massive fertile valley, that they comfortably live off of. It’s capital has a wooden palisade and its buildings built with mud-daub buildings.

Location - Salli, Ivaria (Name of the Valley.)
Climate - Plains/Riverlands
Notable Resources - Horned Horses, Flying Lizards, Marble, etc.

Originally men of the mountains the Saladonians eventually entered the fertile plains of their homeland, and while the reason of them leaving their homeland forgotten the result was the same, A realm of men on the fertile plains and river lands of Ivaria. At the time only one clan existed Clan Bryre, it enjoyed its early years in the plain, however as time progress the Clan became so large that it could hardly be a clan anymore, Vallenian the IV, realized this, and farthest members from the direct family of the clan, making new clans.

This was marked as the ‘Origin Era’, for this would also establish a government not just of one clan, but of many. The first three clans that appeared was, Clan Rylander, Clan Farrenian, and Clan Vylander. They were all to be subordinate to the Kingdom of Bryreland, named after the father clan, and kingdom of the Saladonians. The Saladonian society was born from a shared identity among the citizens of the kingdom.

However this unity and loyalty eventually led to trouble, after 20 years of its established colonies, the Bryreling Government began to fall apart. The communications between city state and village was difficult, and control always troublesome. Furthermore, the Bryre government started down a dark road of unbridled power. The people suffered under the strain of their power-hungry king.

The king of Bryreland, King Vituvian Bryre the Second, had lusted for a Rylander girl- Tibus Rylander’s older sister. King Vituvian would desire her so much, that he would visit her in the night. He tried to coax her into willful consent, however she would not give in. In a fit of rage he killed her, and blamed it upon a servant.

This did not go unignored, however and soon Imperator (Commander) Cratus Rylander heard of the ordeal from a cowering servant who had seen everything. Cratus however was unlike Vituvian and wished to not throw Bryreland into civil war. He gathered allies and friends, choosing carefully to ensure his own safety, afterall dismissing ones loyalty is the greatest of sins. Cratus explained to many that it was Vituvian who abandoned his duties, and while many disgruntled Saladonians agreed with him, they too knew of the kings overreach of power.

Eventually Cratus enacted a coup, and half the Kings guard turned against their King. Vel Rylander and his loyal kings guard defended the king to their dying breath, but that to wasn’t enough. In the end the King was exiled to Serrith, to live out his days. Cratus was now in control and decided to form a republic. Knowing another king could only abuse power again. Thus the republic was formed. The rights given to the outer villages allowed the city states independence movements to die down.

As peace and tranquility came to the Republic it was short lived, and soon a plague hit the city killing the populace. The hardy and powerful survived and relied on magick to aid them in there struggle. The Rune of Fire kept many warm throughout the nights. Saladonia became a city of the hardy and brave, building the attitude of perseverance into their soul.

During the reign of Tibus Rylander, the state welcomed foreigners who referred to themselves as the Chosen. Being from the distant lands of Aslani. The Senate saw the matters relating to the Chosen very carefully, ensuring they were doing the right thing. Tibus’s reign saw to dealing with a growing population, and diplomacy. Ending with a small investment into military at the end.

Daros Bryre followed suit, after hearing reports in Serrith, about the Serrins being invaded by nomads. The Lord-Imperator saw fit to improve the military, and abandon more domestic responsibilities, however as the foe approached the gates, and the numbers at a size of intimidation. Daros Bryre surrendered to the nomadic horde, a un-Saladonian choice, that resulted in him being forced to suicide, a stab into the heart, the Saladonians refer as, “Dedicating his heart.”

Malix Varly is the most recent Lord Imperator. A military man, who has met some success both improving the military and living standards. He has dealt with multiple matters, rescuing the enslaved Saladonians, opening a mine to iron, and finally establishing housing for the lower and more unfortunate populace. He has been a better sort of man than the previous Lord-Imperator, and has dealt with matters appropriately.


Gladium - A man or women who failed to uphold the values of Saladonian society, (Honor, Bravery, and Loyalty) and been banished to the slums. They struggle hard finding it difficult to find a job, or living. Wearing the ‘Mark of the Gladium’ on seared on their chest, they are easily indentified as opposed to their proper Saladonian kin.

Lord-Imperator - A elected office, established by the Saladonian Republic. The role is a mish-mash of Imperial dictatorship, and republicanism. The name derives from Imperators, or “commanders”, which used to be the leaders of the Saladonian military, before Imperator became a leader title.

High Magister - The head scholar of a Saladonian School. They lead the Saladonian Scholars into the proper ways of society.

High Magick - Magick that is not formed/related to runes.

Low Magick - Magick that is formed/related to runes

Jinx-Flinger/Caster - A person who uses high magick.

Rune-Smith - A person who uses low magick/Rune magick

Saeling - A Saladonian byname often shared between Saladonian. While Saladonian is the formal name, Saeling is the informal. Often used to when ones friendly and rowdy as opposed to being distant and silent.

Senatorial - The meeting theater where the Senate discusses the day to day happenings and administer the republic.

Lowlander - a person who lives in the lowlands (plains)

Highlander - a person who lives in the highlands (mountains)

Asling - a informal byname used for the Aslani foreigners, often used when ones friendly and rowdy as opposed to distant and silent.

Tibus Vella Rylander - Lord Imperator of the Imperial Republic of Saladonia. Known to be a cunning pragmatic man, but one to uphold the honor of the Saladonians.

Ita

Description: A moderately sized city-state nestled in a mountain vale, the people of Ita are notable for their hard-nosed optimism despite frequent military encounters with less than friendly neighbors. As such, the city is defended by a wall of cracked stone.

The city of Ita lies right in the middle of the aptly-named Ita Valley. Two mountain ranges surround the people and their similarly-named city in the east and the west. Whilst not containing the most arable land, the people are well-supplied by a river and its tributary streams running through the entire valley, and have enough in terms of food due to an overabundance of wild goats and domesticated goats.

The city of Ita was devastated by the Midnight Horde, and the simple stone wall that had defended it so well for a century was destroyed, and in its place a new one was built.

Settlements:
Ita | 1600 Citizens - 100 Scholars, 300 Soldiers, 200 Artisans, 100 Explorers, 100 Freemen, 800 Peasants | Military: Militia | Public Order: Adequate | Resources: Silver, Lead, Goats, Redwoods | Land: 5 Mountain, 10 Hills, 5 Riverland

The Chosen of Neferkara
Image


General Description: Founded in the Kingdom of Aslani and exiled shortly after, the Chosen are a arcane and priestly faction seeking to further the knowledge of necromancy and other magics. Having wandered around the known world a while before settling into Saladonia, many other city-states have some opinion regarding the Chosen and their activities. To this end they plan on aiding their unlikely allies by providing arcane knowledge and assistance to further grow the small city-state into a powerful kingdom to rival Aslani.

Short History: The Chosen of Neferkara were founded early in the history of the city-state of Aslani. They were primarily priests dealing with death gods, preparing the dead to cross into the afterlife, as well as early work with magic related to life and death. They however, were formed under the name The Mortuary Servants and this practice placed them in a place of great importance for the formative years of the City-state's time before it grew beyond its own borders. It is during the first expansion of Aslani that the Prince Neferkara was born and was destined to be the next Star-Reader, he was forced by the current Star-Reader to join the Mortuary Servants as a means by which to prevent him from attaining the throne. A younger son became the next Star-Reader and it didn't take more than a decade before the Mortuary Servants led a revolt against the Star-Reader and placed Neferkara on the throne. Calling himself Priest-King Neferkara and creating the first instance where the Star-Reader was not the ruler of the Kingdom.

Over the next decade the other factions within Aslani formed a rebellion against Neferkara. Without a great deal of manpower to back him, Neferkara and his priests raised the dead to fill out their ranks. Soon, the legions of Neferkara seemed to be filled with every member of the dead buried within the confines of Aslani. However, even with this, the combined forces of the other Aslani factions were able to breach the palace and allegedly defeat Neferkara himself. As this happened his armies crumbled, the undead bound to him fell to the ground and the Star-Reader emerged atop his pyramid and proclaimed victory.

Defeated, the Chosen fled Aslani northwards. Finding refuge in various communities and city states. Neferkara's grandson, Setnakhte, has taken up the title of Prince of the Aslani, as well as High Priest of Neferkara. They have eventually settled in the city-state of Saladonia, aiming to rebuild their strength in a place that could use their assistance as well. With luck, their aid to the city-state will help to make the people here more inclined to assist them in resurrecting the power of Neferkara into physical form.

Organization Goals: - Raise Neferkara as a Lich
- Return to Aslani as conquerors
- Capture a City-State as a base of operations

Membership: Saladonia |
Interred Bodies: 57 of Gladium
Access to ~1300 Saladonian Dead

Sarfuth | 380 Citizens -100 Scholars, 100 Artisans, 180 Peasants, 176 Skeletons| Resources: Gold, Snowberries, Giant Firs | Land: 10 Mountains, 5 Hills, 5 Forest
Rural District (Forest) [6/20][1 Huts, 1 Hunting Grounds]
Rural District (Hills) [0/20] - Under Construction - 2 Labor
Assets: 160 Saladonian Dead, Wealth [I]

Leadership: Prince Setnakhte, High Priest of Neferkara - M, 59, Scholar - Necromancer - Prince Setnakhte is the third child of Neferkara born a few months after the Priest-King's death. Never knowing the true strength his father held over Aslani, the young prince became the ruler over the Chosen at a young age when it became apparent he had inherited a great deal of his father's magical abilities as well as his intellect. He fully believes that his life must be sacrificed to bring his father back to the physical realm and is more than ready to do so.

High Priestess Neferata - F, 43, Scholar - Necromancer - Neferata's ancestry, like many other within the Chosen, originates with a previous ruler of the Aslani. Her father was a highly ranked priest before their arrival in the lands of Saladonia. She was taught that the Aslani culture is the greatest in the world and that all other cultures were meant to serve them. Since her arrival in Saladonia she looks down on the locals and makes her views known to everyone within the Chosen. She has ambitions to become the leader of the Chosen given the chance.

Priestess Iset - F, 38, Scholar - Necromancer - Younger sister of Neferata, Iset was raised to be similar to her older sister. She instead rejected her father's view of the world and instead has a more accepting view of other cultures. She has enjoyed her time living in the Republic of Saladonia and has made many friends within the ranks of the Saeling. She sees the necromantic arts as a means to an end. She doesn't believe that they need to return to the Aslani Kingdom to prosper and that they could create their own state in the fertile valley.

Prince Khafra Tjenu - M, 38, Scholar - Necromancer - Son of Prince Setnakhte, heir to the bloodline of Neferkara. He has been kept out of sight for the most part and prepared to serve as Neferkara's second-in-command. His own ambitions are slightly less than reconquest of Aslani Kingdom. He wants to create a land in which his people can grow and prosper without having to look back on what could have been and instead look forward into what is and will be. He hasn't been permitted to go into the city and make contacts by his father, but he has a few contacts through his close associates within the ranks of the Chosen. In time he hopes to gain more influence over the Chosen to make the transition to his leadership that much easier.

Kiya Tjenu - F, 19 - Daughter of Khafra and Iset, Head of Clan Tjenu
Neferati Tjenu - F, 17 - Daughter of Khafra and Iset
Amhose Tjenu - M, 17 - Son of Khafra and Iset, Heir of Neferkara
Setnakhte Tjenu - M, 12 - Son of Khafra and Iset

Name: The Chrysí Aspída

Leader: Apostolos Rellas

History: The Chrysí Aspída were founded by traveling warriors around the city-state of Cadmus to act as mercenaries for traders. They were founded by Chrysíva Garius who acted as Supreme Commander, and after his death, the new Commander, Enzis Bacar, created the Council of Veteránoi to advise him on what would be best for the Chrysí Aspída. The Chrysí Aspída also accepted nearby tribesmen into their fold to act as guides to traders who were unfamiliar with the terrain and increased the Chrysí Aspída's wealth. They're still active near Cadmus and have attempted to set up a guild trade post near Cadmus, but failed.
