The Realm of Feror
The Emperor of Life's Breath
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
City-State: Boralia (Population: 14,000; Government: Feudalism)
The citizens of Boralia, from the lowest hedge knight to the highest dukes and duchesses, only believe in one god – the Emperor. While they acknowledge other powerful beings exist in the cosmos, and are deserving of praise and worship, it is the He who shields all of Boralia from the greatest of evils. In the name of Him do Knights quest in service of the Lords above their station. While paupers toil and feed the rest of the city-state, it is the duty of each of their betters to defend them from what exists beyond the domain. To do nothing in the face of great evils violates the tenants of what the Emperor holds most sacred – the defense of the realm. While there is no king of Boralia, the lands are divided among five Dukes that lord over small fiefdoms that make up the city-state (the largest by acreage, compared to the rest of Feror). Each fiefdom has several Marquises that administrate the day-to-day operations of the city, assisted by cabals of Reeves that maintain law and order among the populace. While it is the lowest of Boralian society, being a lowborn Pauper offers some comfort as they are at least guaranteed food, shelter and security if they are willing to work to their ability for the Lords above them. The only way out is to become a Knight and adventure in the name of the Emperor, until the day that he recalls all of his most faithful to defend the lands from the great evils that inhabit it.
