Andorian Alliance

The Holy Pact of the Andorian Realms, or as it is more commonly known, the Andorian Alliance, is a trade and military alliance between some of the nations of Lake Kadia and the Ostig Plateau; more precisely, between the Kadian nations and Ernfelian nations. The member nations are advocating the veneration of The Four and their dogma of laws, though some to a lesser degree than others.   Even though over the centuries member states have shifted (see The Osternfel Civil War of 1201 and The Great Kadian Split), the only political entity to truly ever secede from the alliance was the former Kingdom of Kavir.

Trade Sactions

As a whole, the Free Cities Board of Directors limits the trade power of the Andorian Alliance, mostly due to the influence of the Vintian Imperium. Those sanctions are often overriden by each member individualy, with some going to great lengths to ensure their nation's trade with the Free Cities.

Limited Relations

Despite recent trade treaties and protection deals made between the Kingdom of Navara and Clan Einstein regarding movement in Debye Pass, trust is rare and suspicions are high. Both Osternfel's and Evornfel's attempts to push into Debye Pass are met with armed resistance from the Dragonborns.

High Tensions

Despite the Treaty of Four barring the Empire of Ader from settling in the Northern Amadels, both Osternfel and Evornfel push into the valley, sometimes sparking violent skirmishes with the Kingdom of Dam Lodir.

At War

The Vintian Imperium is still officialy at war with the Kingdom of Ader and the Andorian Church since the first salemizia. This state of war extands to all members of the Andorian Alliance but actual engagement is extremely rare, as both the Imperium and the Alliance wish to avoid a continental war that could spark from such incident.

    The Shrieking Death
    Plague / Epidemic

    Bardalaga the Witch is burnt on the stake in village near the Rosewood Marsh and the peasantry burn down her alchemy tower. One day after they returned from the deed, the peasants started to shriek in pain as their skin turned black, the priests that arrived to bury the dead were infected as well. Within 3 months almost every settlement on the Gold Coast was infected by the Corpus plague.   The plague ravaged Lake Kadia for almost 12 years, killing more then a quarter of the population. The extremely infectious nature of the disease allowed it to kep spreading north to the Kaviri Highlands and east, through the mountains routes to Evornfel and Osternfel.   Magic users, shamans, and even some bards, already being prosecuted by the Andorian Church in its vendetta against necromancy, were blamed as the cause of the plague. Many were lynched and left to rot in the streets as chaos engulfed the Empire of Ader, not all of them magic users. Elves, halflings, Gnomes and tieflings where targeted as well.   Some folks began to flee south towards the Kingdom of Darseras, carring the plague with them. The kingdom quickly closed its borders, leaving refugees to fend for themselves against the the sickness and the many bandits and slavers that followed them.

    While the War of Succession rages across Lake Kadia, The Inquisition under the Andorian Church takes upon itself the duty of securing the peasantry. They manage to secure the well being of most denizens of the war torn kingdoms, patrolling from town to town, requiting those they rescued into their ranks so they could be sent to save others.   Following the outbreak of the Shrieking Death, the church claims magic is the root cause and sends the forces of the Inquisition to exile, or kill, all spell casters from Lake Kadia and seize or even destroy their property if needed. A flood of refugees travels south towards Kingdom of Darseras and east, through the Central Amadels towards Osternfel.

    The Razing of Salem
    Disaster / Destruction

    Delegates of Salem, a large village in Kavir, refused the assistance and treatment offered by members of the Andorian Church, raising its suspicions. When a group of Wolfmen arrived, they discovered many of the villagers formed a vast network of cultists and even warlocks, who followed the bidding of a hag coven. Upon discovery, the wolfmen locked the residents inside their homes and torched the hovels; killed the hags and threw their bodies inside the village well; and finally, filled the well to the brim with whatever debris they could. These wolfmen would thereon refer to similar acts as "doing as in Salem", or Salemizia in Kaviric.   The term "salemizia" became commonly used in Aderic and The Common Languages after a large-scale wave of anti-casters riots, with the razing of Salem the first of these to involve so many deaths.

    The Wizards Trail
    Population Migration / Travel

    Persecution of magic users by the Andorian Church leads many wizards, sorcerers and other magic users to flee south towards the Kingdom of Darseras, who has more relaxed rules regarding the magical practices.   Coliant Visendaril, King of Darseras, does not allow the refugees into the kingdom, but allows them to settle in any former part of the kingdom. Vintia, formerly an abandoned Darseran city becomes the destination of many, mainly due to the relative proximity to the Darsal Planes but also because of its relatively intact infrastructure that was left.   A great deal of those who traveled the trail found themselves pray to slavers, who were the one of the few ways to cross the land safely, as bandits would rarely attack them. Being magically talented, most of those fleeing were considered as lucrative slaves, and would often exchange their services in return for safe passage of their loved ones. Those contract would usually last for a lifetime or a few decades at the very least and those being transferred would often find themselves in slavery themselves.   Others were forced to relay on smugglers, pirates and other lowlife, and usually fared far worse then those who sold themselves as slaves. While slaves needed to at least be fit and healthy when arriving at their destinations, refugees would often be robbed of their valuables and killed whenever it was convenient or profitable.
