The Jolundrian Empire
A force to be reckoned with at the heart of the world.
The Jolundrian Empire is the foremost constitutional monarchy in Melior, encompassing the regions of Arklend, Anvil, Kuldar, and Xul. It was established upon the dawn of the Second Age, sparked by the ending of the War of Waves in 299 1A, with the coronation of Emperor Yoann Falkenrath on the 12th of Windfall 300 2A. Since then it has grown with sizeable allies in its continued wars and skirmishes against The Melopian Commonwealth.
Dynasties of The EmpireEach reign has brought new growth to The Jolundrian Empire, but not all rulers have flourished. The early days of the Falkenrath Dynasty was prosperous, with Kuldar and Arklend joining forces as the first global allies of Jolundria. The Severin Dynasty continued with massive global growth, connecting Anvil and Porosa to The Empire, and also formalized The Originator's Order as its major religion. The rise of The Jolundrian Empire has not gone so smoothly since, however. The reign of the Orris Dynasty was a dark time for The Empire as it saw the sudden assassination of Empress Greta Orris, the capture of Porosa to the forces of The Melopian Commonwealth, and the tragic death of Emperor Newton Orris who fought during the battle to save Porosa. The Jolundrian Empire is currently under The Borchard Dynasty's rule, with the Coronation of Empress Ingrid Borchard on the 6th of Hearthcall 559 3A.

TerritoriesIn addition to its homelands, The Jolundrian Empire encompasses four major regions of Arklend, Anvil, Kuldar, and Xul.
JolundriaJolundria is the homeland of The Empire and is home to the Imperial capital, heavily fortified on the isle of Kourk. At the heart of Jolundria rests the cold core of The Aurus, pulsing with magical sky auras and hording ancient secrets beneath the ice. Temperate regions cover most of the continent, which tails off into the scorching hot sands of The Great Tentottan Desert.
ArklendAs a long term ally of Jolundria, Arklend supports The Empire's war efforts against The Melopian Commonwealth with crops, livestock, textiles, wine, and metals. Arklend's climate is temperate towards The Aurus and has warmer isles along the Sea of Esess. Arklend is the only continent that is home to both a hot and a cold desert.
AnvilDue to strong trade winds, the shores of Anvil are prone to raids and skirmishes directly from The Melopian Commonwealth. Anvil is famous for its engineers, inventors and artisans who supply The Jolundrian Empire with new technologies and fine arts. Anvil hosts a wealth of warm to tropical climate zones that taper out into an active volcanic island chain.
XulXul plays a crucial support role in aiding The Jolundrian Empire with exotic medicines and deadly toxins for the battlefield. Xul is a tropical volcanic island home to lush rainforests and a sweltering desert, and whilst life in Xul might look like paradise, settlments here face their own daily battles against the horrifying beasts of the island.
KuldarAfter The Melopian Commonwealth gained control of Porosa, Kuldar became the next target as a stepping stone to the Jolundrian mainland. Kuldar has become a hostile war zone littered with graves both occupied and vacant. It is a temperate land with a icy cold wastelands along the Ursurian Sea.

The compass guides us home.The common motto of The Jolundrian Empire is quite literal in the fact that the compass points toward The Aurus. This is why the Aurus (and therefore, Jolundria) is in the center of the map, as all points lead to here.
