The Twin Kingdoms

By:

Kingdoms tied by the bonds of blood and war

Founded by Twin kings ages past, the Twin kingdoms of Thyan and Salatra have warred for centuries.  Never in these wars has one side prevailed, and a strong sense of honor governs their warring.

Other kingdoms which have sought to take advantage of this perpetual discord have found, to their dismay, that they instead face the combined wrath of the two kingdoms, equipped with the best trained warriors the world has known.

Geography

Through fate and successful campaigning, each kingdom includes much productive lands - mineral rich hills, fertile farmland and game-laden forests.  Between the two kingdoms is a vast expanse of farmland with few natural barriers.  It is this lack of a natural break which leads to the perpetual battle between the kingdoms.

Politics

Each kingdom is a classic medieval society shaped by feudalism.  The royal families of the two are closely related and intermarriage between the two is common, even with active warring between the two. Some pairing have actually resulted from battlefield encounters.

War

Battles are still bloody, but extensive use of Ransoms has led to less death then one would expect. With that, and the disuse of peasant levies or other light troops allows for wars to be fought for extended periods without crippling either nation financially.

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
