Tuath De: Map and Storyline Jul 17, 2017 7:08:29 GMT
Post by admin on Jul 17, 2017 7:08:29 GMT
OVERVIEW: Based roughly on historical Ireland, Tuath De exists as an allied city state to the Empire and was one of its earliest allied states. It was also the source of the first Centaur Cavalry unit and the Centaurs still occupy the plains West of the Sacred Grove. The people of Tuath De are Druidic worshippers of the moon godess Danu and are smaller and frailer in appearance than their Southern neigbours. The reason for this is that the vast majority of the people of Tuath De have some wood elf blood, and it is not uncommon for a child born of human parents to be half elven (such as their current High King, who has been on the throne for 120 years)..
THE SACRED GROVE: A magical, elfin grove that is home to the ancient Nymph Queen. The Nymph queen allows the High King to handle day to day ruling of the Kingdom, but he is ultimately her puppet.
WHISPERING WOODS: A sprawling and highly magical forest sacred to the Druids.
BLACKBERRY WOODS: Despite its innocous name, Blackberry Woods is a no go zone and is haunted by the twisted spirit of the Nymph Queens half sister.
GALBURY CASTLE: Believed to be unassailable, Galbury castle is the nominal capital of Tuath De.
SALTWOOD: The only surviving coastal town, it is defended from the Northmen by the Imperial Navy and is a major export center of salt.
WOOD ELVES: An autonomous region entirely inhabited by various Wood elf tribes. Relations with the Kingdom are excellent.
DARKHILL KEEP: Also a naval base for Imperial ships defending against pirates and Northmen raiding parties.
ASHEN COVE: Was the location of the old capital, destroyed by Northmen raiders over 700 years ago..
SHAMBLE ISLAND: Was once a small Kingdom, but was completely destroyed by the Northmen and is now overrun with Kobolds.
