The Cetrian City-States
There are seven primary city-states within the Cetrian Republic. Each one is basically a small nation unto itself, with larger towns and villages spread across the lands it controls.
Under construction; leaving room for player input.
- Arnaught: The mountainous home of the would-be Prismatic Empress, half-ruined at the end of the Oathbreaker War and slow to rebuild as it paid reparations. At present, Arnaught is stoically rebuilding itself, with a governing body who desperately wishes to maintain good diplomatic relations and a rebellious undercurrent of bitter nationalists who wish the Empress had won.
- Denaureum: A trading capital, situated in the wetlands of a major river delta, and with all the wealth that this optimal mercantile location would imply. Denaureum has a stronger navy than standing army, but possessed the coin to fund the winning side of the Oathbreaker War. The city-state is ruled by a Council of Maestros rather than any one lord, and is particularly notable for the many excuses its citizens find to wear masks and operate under aliases.
- [a monarchial city-state largely governed by dragonics, in particular the three noble lineages of fire-hearts, chill-hearts, and poison-hearts. Was on the winning side of the Oathbreaker War, and civic pride is a common thing.]
- [a miiltary city-state that provided the bulk of the fighting prowess to resist the Prismatic Empress.]
- [a city-state where a powerful religious leader holds influence over the rightful lord; was conquered during the Oathbreaker War, and a hard-right faction of racist zealots has assumed prominence during the rebuilding years.]
- [a strange city-state with a penchant for necromancy and pacts with daimons of the Underworld; was conquered by the Prismatic Empress during the Oathbreaker War, but offered constant resistance, even going so far as to revivify their ancestors…]
- Thassala: [coastal city ruled by a Pirate Queen who’s managed to legitimately “land-up”, in part due to significant naval superiority brought on by her cadre of daughters come lieutenants-on-the-high-seas, and maybe having established a port city on top of a discovered ruin or in a previously impassable area that she now controls or somesuch. She is Jeandelusia Beluzara, warrior matron from a long (very thin) bloodline of Gorgon.]
