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.

Nomadic Library

       By: Murometz

Saril had a dream. To open a library in the windswept wastes of Naarish, so that the people of the many villages and towns spread over the hundreds of leagues of desert could discover the joys of his books. For a whole year he kept his library open, but alas, almost no one came.

That is when Saril came up with his new idea. If people didn't travel to read his books, he would travel to them! Saril closed his library, hired a team of twelve camels, loaded up the beasts with all of his books and proceeded to invent the first nomadic library.

Now children and adults alike, looked forward to hearing the bells of Saril's camels as he entered their villages, as he tirelessly traversed the deserts in a long circuitous route, visiting every village and town he came across, in turn. It came to pas that Saril's traveling library came to some fame, and that is how the folk of Naarish became literate.

A word of warning though. Naarish has only six thousand volumes. He deals with those that lose or steal his tomes quite "harshly", by bypassing the town or village which was responsible for losing one of his books for that calendar year.
