Eusdria

The Kingdom of Eusdria

  • Capital – Othmar (population 7,500).
  • Population – primarily humans, wood-touched, and earth-touched.
  • Ruler – King Sigismund III the Great, son of Godegesil.

Most Eusdrians have straight hair, and the majority grow it long and form it into one long braid—usually worn down the middle of the back but sometimes thrown over the left shoulder. Eusdrians tend toward clothing of cotton and buckskin, though wool and fur are used in the colder, mountainous areas. The clothing is usually made in blues, purples, and whites — though greys, greens, and browns are used as well.

Eusdrian society consists of a nobility, which provides the nation’s leaders, and a “freeheart” class, which is the normal citizenry. Like Robrenn, Eusdria has no real peasant class. Most freehearts are warriors, but clerics come from this class as well.

Eusdrian Royal Dominions

Each of the dominions governs most of its own internal affairs, but the crown can revoke internal policies. The king, advised by a council of clergy and various knights and nobles, decides international policy. After the recent wars, a freeheart council was established to help advise the king.
