Fervor fell upon the Seud, and from its root, the Siudrairn was born...
Short HistoryIn the past, Turrano Núrragh, "The Knolls of Low North," was a much-coveted territory for the Dominion. For those who'd yearned to take charge of the Koldairn, none could ignore the cold whispers heard upon the winds. Strelosions seduced by the slow rumblings of sweet fruit, frosted gold, and the sun's blessed warmth. Of course, everyone knew of Croxie and those damnable Faerusians. How they fell upon the north, plucking at the blood of its heart, the Isatia. And yet, all was quiet. No signs of a storm. Or the unbroken raves of bluster and conceit. Did they not now control the core of trade across the peninsula? Become fat off the wealth of fur, meat, and leather. Direct the ebb and flow of dsona (honeyed spice) and sanrei (tree sap). Or, have all precious ores like Aerren (dusksilver), Aurran (white gold), and Hréun (drake bronze), fall under their grasp.
Head of State
Cèrrion:On the day of her coronation, Cèrrion Íora I signed into law the 'Blackcrown Concordance.' She promised that "though the blood of Easoddar holds the highest seat in all the land. The role known as Cèrrion. May the right of power be bound to the voice of commons. The right of law engraved on the sword of knights. The right of care sown to the eyes of wards. And the light of magick gifted to all Cèrysh." The Cèrrion is naught more than a figurehead. A symbol of Cèrysh unity who opens the council and represents the kingdom abroad. They are a fixture of the people. A reflection of Cèrysh might. Then what of the royal family, House Sanuiell?
The Royal Family:Since the time of Lady Reveca cè Easoddar. House of Sanuiell, known before as Hwais Easoddar, has long been intertwined with the lands of Cèrez. And so to its people. When Íora sat upon the throne. Burning the Crest of Easoddar. That bloodied symbol of slavers, conquerors, and thieves. She declared to her people that "her blue blood would be tied not to the past but the future." As such, all royals born of Sanuiell honor this motto, serving the people of Cèrez. Whether as military advisors, educators, or ordinary civil servants. The children of Sanuiell are always at work.

Demography and Population
Other than the Koldairn Fellowship, the Seed of Núrn is the second-largest union in all the Timberlands. 20% of the peninsula's populace resides here in the Low North, around 11,520,000 peoples.
The Dragon's SouthMost of the Principality sits in Siudrairn, 'the Dragon's South.' It is the youngest and the most pastoral territory in all the Low North. Grasslands, a near-endless meadow of amber-green grass broken up by a series of crystal blue rivers and small bright thickets of snowy-white kobèa (whitewood trees) and apple-red téfinnua (redthorn trees).
"The Dhara once served as judge, jury, and executioner of these lands. In those times past, when the Court was no stronger than a flailing child, it was the Dhara who dealt out justice as they saw fit."
Nå Salla RuaThe Scarlet Hall, the Sword of Iddan, is the kingdom's central legion of war, answering directly to the Assembly and Court members of their region. As the military arm of the Magisterium, they hold the protection and education of tHåla's people as their highest priority.
- Instructing schools of magick across the country,
- researching old faeic ruins and tomes,
- eradicating demons,
- exploring the world,
- hunting sorcerers and shades (rogue mages),
- as well as regulating the cases going into official guild offices.
The Núrnish Guild of RangersThe Núrnish Guild of Rangers, or the The Rangers Guild for short, was once a freelance organization born of Brairmorí houses. Funded by Lady Rauslynn of House Dauntyth, the Ranger's Guild was tasked solely with venturing into the Vale as the Kaedyn's eyes and ear. Though as the organization grew and fell under the purview of the Assembly, its mission grew.
- The investigating the depths of ancient Faerusian ruins uncovered across the Timber,
- studying the black treasures of the Mon Dhaura catacombs,
- fishing out ancient tomes hidden in the Llylonn forest in Anrei,
- and "aiding" the nations of the accord.
Ån Salla GlaeuThe Cerulean Hall can be considered Serys's faith sector. Home to the dSamhté (Summer) Parishes, the Cerulean Hall was once a bastion of great knowledge and kinship in days past. The hall and it's many parishes serve as the backbone of morality, faith, and guidance for people in need. It is their doors that remain open to the poor, destitute, and unwanted, bringing them up to be prominent clerics of the faith, sound paladins of the Order Glaeu (Blue Order), and eager purveyors of wisdom. Under the Mother Llúna and Father Heindhal, the parishes are subdivided into the worship of their blessed children. It is the Order Glaeu that aids the Black Hall in vanquishing demons, sniffing out acolytes of the Order Chaveila, and advocating for religious freedom and virtue.
Agriculture & Industry
The Agricultural SectorThe Seed of Núrragh is divided culturally between the Cèrysh of Siudrairn, Hållish of Bhaltairia, and Núrnish of An Royseu. It is the Cèrez Principality who holds the reins of most of the agricultural sector. Unlike the other regions, Siudrairn is the most fruitful in terms of agriculture and cultivation. As the thickets that encircle the dells of this area stall the cold winds coming in from the northwest. So here, vibrant blankets of amber green are accompanied by endless dells, a balmy kettle of fragrant grånnél, vivid flowers, and warm winds. Small beasts of the thickets, like the llapin and aungoc, make tasty prey. While the hearty grazers, such as the ysa and onddarri, are best for meat and leather. The great lakes and ponds that mark the sylvan north. Find their start down south, here in the Siudrairn region. The endless grasslands cut through by numerous blue rivers and small gurgling creeks. Slowly, flowing in from the Monlaeu Aussir, 'the Eastern Blue.' Fishing, husbandry, grain farming, and meat production, you would find no better than in the plains of Siudrairn. The region is composed of four main shires: , Tyrraeu Cèrr, Hraethur, and . Look into the Cèrysh Ministry of Agriculture.
Trade & Transport
- Trade is centralized to the Lluan Cere, a portion of the greater Isatia, at tHåla's marrow: Odetta Fe, Ausloc, and Unthuria
- The greater river, the Vrydannia, then flows through the southwestern border: Hraethur and Sän Dhúpra.
- It snakes along towards the northeastern coast: Kollynn Núrr and Dunoi Jaté.
BenefitsThe Rósun Accord has proven to be quite a beneficial alliance for those smaller kingdoms and colonies. Clinging to the shadows of such bastions of power like Marríz Chavia, DUKE, and tHåla has offered them much in the way of protection. Not only for the great expanse of land that the three rule, but the great number and quality of mages that the kingdoms produce. Newer resources and technology from their allies have not only jump-started civil order, but education, industry, and agriculture as well. On the other hand, the big three have also benefited immeasurably. The opening of "friendly" borders has brought many exotic spices to the tables of noblemen, sweet fruit to the hinterlands, and more commodities than a commoner could wish for. Though, it was the North Crescent of Chavia who profited the most. Playing the main intermediary has granted them a license for trade on the Lluan Isatia as well as the La Baures Rísya Rúj (the Red-Queen Bay).
"In the fields of amber we fight.
