StormHaven Organization in Illios | World Anvil


The Kingdom of StormHaven is a proud and honorable kingdom. Known for its Knights and Weaponry. The Kingdom has been ruled by the noble house of Gale since it was founded centuries ago. The Current king is King Jakis Gale, "The StormCaller". In the year SF 970 King Jakis rediscovered the sword known as Draekvind, the Moonblade that has served the Gale house since the old empire was. With StormHaven having re-built its strength from the destruction of the Gods War, Jakis ordered that the land lost in the Gods War be reclaimed in the name of StormHaven.   The duchies of The Harrow, and Glenobar were reclaimed for StormHaven in 970 and 972 after the Knights of StormHaven cleared out the bandits who claimed themselves holders of those lands.   StormHaven is about 490 miles across.     The Kingdom has moderate central power, there isn't a real standing army, instead the various Lords maintain their own armies.


In addition to the seven duchies that make up the Kingdom on the continent, the Kingdom also lays claim to the Lunaris Isle.


The militrary is largely beholden to the Dukes of Stormhaven, the Royal family has the Archduchy of Silvervale and its own troops from that Dukedom, but the rest of the dukes maintain their own troops as well.     Overall the Kingdom is known for its knights and cavalry.

Technological Level

StormHaven places a large emphasis on enchantment, the people of StormHaven largely use magic to strengthen there physical equipment, and over the years this has given the Enchanters of StormHaven an unparalleled ability.   While the knowledge of there creation was lost long before the succession war that split the empire, some StormHaven noble houses are still the proud owners of a Moonblade. These blades are symbols of great renown, and there creation was the greatest forging and enchantment accomplishment of the StormHaven Empire.


The Patron Gods of StormHaven are Akel and Aimonval
