Legends of The Old Kingdom
The Trampled Steppes
The Trampled Steppes is the central region of Santeri, composed primarily of grassy flatlands and forests. Large settlements are few and far between, around 50% of the population lives in villages scattered across the countryside, housing around 150 citizens each. Another 25% lives in larger towns and cities, with the final 25% embracing a nomadic lifestyle.
The ruling government is composed of Lady Amora (Goddess of Mercy), Lord Artorias (God of Valor), and Lady Delphia (Goddess of Justice.) Their capitol city is Ostirion. The Guardians commanded by Lady Amora protect settled portions of the land from harm, while the the less-numerous Lawkeepers led by Lady Delphia travel with nomadic caravans as protection, as well as looking into local issues, either passing judgement or escorting suspects to the courts for judgement at the hands of Lady Delphia. Lord Artorias commands the Legion and handles foreign conflicts, primarily focused on holding Wolfram’s horde at bay, as well as catching any monsters that slip through the defenses of The Penumbral Rainforest.
