The Twin Kingdoms


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.


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.


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.


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.

Blood Lover!

       By: Murometz

Forsht Bligo is a dwarf who loves the taste of blood. He's become quite the connoisseur over the years. Pigs blood, sheeps blood, cow's blood, if it's red and warm, Forsht considers it a delicacy. The fresher and hotter the better. Forsht will often sneak up on cattle, prick them with his dagger, and catch the flowing blood in his orc-skull drinking cup. His life goal is to taste the blood of every living animal. Although he has not yet sampled humanoid blood, he is not averse to doing so if the right opportunity presents itself. He is not particularly unpleasant if approached and can be easily befriended. Its just that he simply can't get enough of the "Juice of Life", as he calls it. Forsht's troubles come in the form of frightened and angry villagers who have proclaimed the misunderstood dwarf a vampire. Since Forsht is amused by this, he does little to dissuade anyone. This will lead to some dicey situations for Forsht in the near future.
