The Kingdom of Many Kingdoms

The edge of the forest was approaching, in the distance, the two could see vast amounts of farmland and the trails weaving in and out of them. They could faintly hear the horses and carriages that brought people and merchants in and out of the city, which was always open to travelers.

Upon arriving in Market Town, they were met with the chaotic hustle and bustle of everyday life in this part of Stonewood. The castle-like buildings that towered over them seemed almost magical and the streets were an explosion of color that weaved in, out, and around each other. There was no shortage of places to go for supplies, the only challenge was deciding where they would go first.

Stonewood's Flag

Welcome, traveler!


t is no secret that the largest population of Knights lies in Stonewood, a generally peaceful and charming Kingdom that can be found near the center of Stonewood Forest (Which is also its namesake).

For the budding adventurer, Stonewood is often either a starting point for their quest or the first stop on their journey. Regardless of your needs, be it armor or weapons, food or shelter, or even magical goods, the abundance of Knights means there are no shortages of excellent craftspeople who sell their works to anyone with the coin. You can also find Quest Boards posted all across the city should you want to take up work now and again, in fact, some Guilds even make a living out of it!

Aside from its demographic, the Kingdom is also known for its surplus of marketplaces, trading outposts, and fertile land, making it a centerpiece for trade between the 3 major powers.

The Forest

The forest that surrounds the Kingdom is named Stonewood for a reason, the trees are magical. It's not exactly known why, most think it's because the Feyspring River brings "magic water" from Dragonspine Mountains directly through the forest. Aside from its massive size and the occasional gray patches scattered around its trunk Stonewood trees might seem pretty ordinary, but, when processed into pulp and cured, it's capable of hardening into stone.

The process is much easier said than done, the trees themselves are much harder to cut down, but the fact that the trees can do this at all makes it a valuable resource. Stonewood Forest is the only one of its kind, so lumber is both the Kingdom's biggest export and its main building material.

While it's useful for construction, the material is usually subpar for making tools, weapons, or armor since it leads to the item being extremely brittle and hard to use. A determined (or stubborn) craftsperson could probably use magic to produce something of high quality, but like, why would you do that?

The Aesthetic

Because of its architecture, Stonewood also earned the nickname "The Kingdom of Many Kingdoms". You'll find that most buildings have a seamless mix of the wooden structures you're used to and the stone brickwork that makes up Castle walls. Some buildings can have towers sprouting from their roofs, some can stretch across city streets to join with those on the other side, normal homes can resemble forts, their fences can look like battlements, and the taverns near them can look like Keeps!

This style makes each street seems like an entirely new Kingdom to most who visit for the first time, and even that's without mentioning the vibrant colors of both its people and their decorative culture.

Banners of all colors, shapes, and sizes hang from virtually any surface. And the Knights that take residence here, especially with their extremely personalized clothing and armor, make each street look like a river of all the colors of the rainbow to anyone looking down from above.

"So you mean to tell me, the Kingdom of Stonewood, is in the middle of Stonewood Forest, a forest that consists of Stonewood Trees?"


Some Fun Facts and Misc. Info I found in my Notes



While the population is more or less dominated by Knights, you'll still find plenty of Elves and Valkyr either traveling or making a home for themselves. In fact, sometimes Elves and Valkyr are even named with Knight traditions and vice versa.

As most people would probably guess, Guild traditions aren't exclusive to Knights, it's not uncommon or weird to see multi-racial Guilds going about their day. It's just something you tend to see a lot.


Because of the chaotic diversity that Affinities introduce, jobs might get a bit complicated. Knights who have specific Affinities are in high demand for jobs that match it. However, this doesn't mean others get overlooked.

For example, a Bee Knight, despite the obvious lack of hive-related jobs, can instead work on a farm pollinating crops to produce a better harvest. In the same bug-related vein, a Spider Knight might work at a mill to spin fibers used for clothing, armor, tools, etc. It's not uncommon for a Knight to have a job completely unrelated to their Affinity, it's something people just expect at this point.


The Festival of Affinity

The Festival of Affinity is a tradition only held in Stonewood and it's exactly what you think it is. A festival held during the first week of Autumn, which is when Affinities were first discovered, meant to celebrate the Knights and the magic that makes them who they are.

It also serves as an invitation for those from all parts of the world to experience the culture that Knights offer, whether it be the food, entertainment, stories, or even a Tournament of Arms lasting multiple days.


Knight funerals are celebrations, first and foremost. It's a time to share stories of the life, the accomplishments, and more often than not, the adventures of those who pass to wish them luck on their journey into the afterlife, wherever that may be.

Over the years the tradition of the Legend Knight made its way into funerals as well, often being a retelling of their version if they had one. To Knights, death isn’t a morbid or shunned topic, although it’s still a sad one. Instead, death is simply the epilogue of someone’s story as it was meant to be, and a time like this means a grand feast is most certainly in order.
