Hawklore

One land, under Hawken


Behind the marshes lies a land of sweeping beauty, held under the fist of the God King Hawken


Overview

Hawken

You can't talk about Hawklore, without bringing up its Immortal King, Hawken . No one knows the true origins of the founder of Hawklore, as he predates the earliest history mankind has at hand. Hawken himself rarely talks about origins or anything that happened during the shadowy period only known as the Divine Wars. What is known is that he's Hawklore's; founder, creator, and first and only king. He's kept an iron rule over his lands since arriving at them, and its wealth for the rich has soared while living quality for the poor has declined. A playground for the rich and perpetual poverty for the rest, Hawklore is a land of stunning beauty and hypocrisy.

Voluntary Exile

Hawklore was founded a number of years before the Divine Age when he voluntarily exiled himself (his words exactly) from The Divinity. The Iron Hawk himself seems to pose no personal ill-will towards any of the deities of Garuda. But a serious difference of opinion happened that has caused both parties to simultaneously not communicate, interact or interfere with each other. Given the overwhelming success and ever-present danger the booming country must pose to Garuda, whatever happened must have been significant.

Stay for the View

Hawklore is established along a natural ridge where the marshes of eastern Garuda start to fade into coastal territory. This stretch of land that Hawken controls contains some of the most beautiful vistas in northern Tikor.   While a fairly small area of the region, Hawklore has an extremely varied geography. Fertile but dangerous mudflats to the north, coastal shelves and coves just off to the east. There is even a small patch of beach dunes in the southeast portion of Hawklore. The sheer wonder of some of the terrain only adds to the mystic that must be the power of Hawken. In the long history of Tikor , many wars and battles have been fought over fertile land, but none have been fought over Hawklore.

Azurean Stockpile

The jewel of Hawklore, and surely the reason why this region was chosen, is the huge azurean deposit that sits inland. Normally the precious ore is mined at the coast or in the Divide's blue depths. But "The Blue Hollow", as the local miners call it, is unique in that while on the water, it's also in a small inlet. The causes the azurean to be surrounded by land on almost all sides. Allowing miners far greater access to the deposit than normally afforded at the seaside. The mine radiates an eerie blue glow that emits at all times, serving as the beacon to what is the capital generator for Hawklore.   The ability to have stable access to Azurean is only one key component to power and wealth on Tikor . The azure ore can't be handled by normal hands, a job only suited to Crystal Priests , which are the second key. The gene that allows the Priests to touch the ore occurs naturally and spontaneously. This keeps most nations and countries from amassing the numbers need to mass produce any product from the ore. Hawken, being a god of craftiness and ingenuity, decided he would create a solution to this problem.

The Impeccable Captial

Excerpt from Main Article High Perch

The capital city of Hawklore and personal home of Hawken, the luxury city High Perch . The city itself matches the personality of its ruler. A city obsessed with vanity and looks, High Perch is a city of grand luxury. If you talk to the right person for the right price, anything can be had in the elaborate city. In the middle of the sprawling city of glamour and hubris, Hawken's personal tower Eagle Eye Tower towers over the city. His watchful eye ever present over the capital.

Geography

Marsh and jungles to the upper north and west portions. Coastal areas on the eastern coast. Small mountain range to the northwest portion.   Largely flatlands with small hills and favorable terrain. Fair and temperate coastal weather.
