Home of the Blue Jewels
We hated their stone structures at first. They towered over our own wooden huts, standing as symbols of our subjugation. Once we tore many of them down, however, we learned from what they had done. Now, we've mastered their art. The architects of Rieweck are known far and wide and their creations shall stand forevermore.Rieweck is a costal region in southern Pekkola that is renowned for its vast urban centres, the Blue Jewels. The native Ceired people that inhabit the land have become arhitectural masters and great city builders. Tales of their marvelous settlements have spread far beyond the boundries of Rieweck, bringing curious visitors from distant lands to Éaburg and Ecádig.
Our forefathers once claimed that a day shall come when the sun shall cower behind clouds as dark as char and fire and death shall pour from the mountain top. Thousands will persish, but from this disaster a greater Ceired civilisation shall emerge with the will and might to rule Pekkola.
By the end of this century, perhaps even before I pop my clogs, all of Ceireddom shall swear fealty to me and my kin.In recent years, Rieweck has come under the High Kingdom of Láþeia's sphere of influence. Their ambitious leader, High King Oswulf the Burning Banner, has carried the burden of responsibility placed on him by his late father, greatly exceeding all expectations. He has continued to expand his realm, striking blow after blow against the crumbling Kingdom of Rieweck that once dominated the region. As his forced marched out to face their enemies, the young king consolidated his power back home. Vassals deemed too distrustful were dealt with swiftly, putting an end to a would-be coup that one of the pretenders to the throne had tried to orchestrate. The lands of such treasonous subjects were stripped from them, granted to loyal vassals and even to a few of the high king's lowborn retainers. With the Kingdom of Rieweck crippled and unable to withstand the onslaught that they face, their hopes of defying the Láþeians now lie with the United Kingdom of the Norðweall to the north. Some of the nobles in Rieweck have even gone as far as to suggesting a union between them and their northern neighbours, incorporating their kingdom as part of the larger United Kingdom. Although their desperation grows with each passing month, the King of Rieweck has so far rejected such ideas, instead hoping that a military alliance will be sufficient.
Ceireds are an industrious folk who live in the southern parts of Pekkola. While they can be rather rude and vindictive, they are a quick thinking folk who have mastered the art of siege warfare.
Lithmark is a region inhabited by the Ceired people which stands as a barrier on the southern fringes of Pekkola against all who would dare to invade the northern lands.
