World of Tarvakar
The Southern nations are (clock-wise from the north-west): the dwarfs of the Steel Mountains, Vigil, Janid, Melkin, Rabidash, Virox, Euphibia, Ichia, Lunidan, Wartooth, Beld, the Tetch Swamp, vigil again then the First Lands.
More war torn nations, it Is a constant state of war. The steel mountains and Vigil are sporadically defending against attacks from the first lands. The beasts of the tetch swamp send raids into the surrounding nations. Rabidash make war on the other nations to gain slaves to use as cattle. Lunidan and Ichia battle with Beld for control of shipping lanes. Every other generation Wartooth attacks EVERYONE. Gaaa I cant even list them all. Basicly someone is ALWAYS fighting somewhere in the southlands. Mercenaries are common. The only nation that remains free from conflict is Melkin as they have remained neutral and USEFUL through all the wars.
Beld, Janid, the tetch swamp and wartooth all used to be united as the Beldish Empire.
