Campaign World Reduction, Starting Small and Simple: The Lands of Darien... Part 1.

Alright, I've had it with this flux on starting my campaign.  Too many things I like from too many fantasy settings to try and meld them all together.  At least as grand as I had first envisioned.  So finally and I mean finally settling on a starting point.

World: Aeyr
Starting Continent: Darien
Starting Factions:  Aramon, Veruna, Taros, Zhon and Creon. (Some of you might recall these. :)

Kingdom of Aramon
Capital City:
Ruler: Elsin I, Mage-King of Aramon.
Aramon lies in the southwest of Darien.  Elsin I is the Mage King.  Aramon is a feudal society with a hierarchy of lords and nobles.  Magick and its users are kept under strict control by the College of Magick.  Archers have a special place in Aramon society and are taught how to enhance their craft with magickal cantrips.  Elsin has a large army and access to a massive feudal levy when needed.

Special Rules
Knights: +1.
Archers: +1
Mages: -1

Elsin I, Mage-King of Aramon.

Principality of Veruna
Capital City: Veruna
Ruler: Kirenna, Princess of Veruna, Chief Priestess of Danu
Veruna is a truly unique place on Aeyr.  It lies in the northwest corner of Darien.  It is ruled by the Sea Sprite Kirenna along with the Burgomeisters of the city.  It’s a true metropolitan city where you will find humans, elves, gnomes and even centaurs walking the streets.  Veruna’s alchemists, priests and wizards work tirelessly to protect the city.


Special Rules
Mages: May pass over water.
Water Lurkers: +1.
Kirenna the Sea Sprite, Queen of Veruna.
