Dragoria

The kingdom of Dragoria was founded when immigrants from the southern kingdoms of the Fork crossed the Lion Mountains and arrived in the dry lands that had just been scorched by dragon fire. Several settlements that had already been built by previous tribes were burnt down by the dragon Oligorious, and thus, were reclaimed by the newly arrived people. The Dragorians soon became a war tribe that live by raiding neighboring areas. They have a strong tradition of martial arts and are known for their hard combat training and difficult life style in the dry lands of their kingdom.

Geography

Dragoria is located north of the Lion Mountains and south of the controversial lands of Evergrave. The vast majority of the land is barren, a desert called "The Red Desert" or "The Red Waste", but a small region to the east is fertile and in certain places rich in nature. Dragoria's cities are built on cliffs and at certain times on very high altitudes making it almost impossible to conquer from land. As it happens, on top of most of these cliffs where the cities are built, there is vegetation and rare beauty that differs from the oceans of sand that cover most of the area.

Structure

  • A King or Queen is elected through the ceremony of Dragaro. Potential leaders claim their candidacy after having excelled in their ten year training period, which is a prerequisite for nomination. When the time comes, they travel to the “King’s Island and fight each other to the death. The surviving warrior becomes King.
  • A Small Dragon is the king's second who serves as a replacement in case of death of the king until the next king is proven through Dragaro. Each king can appoint a Small Dragon of their choice.
  • Dragoons are branded by the king or queen as raiders of proven worth. They are entitled to their own War Mask which serves as a sigil, as well as their own army and become lords or ladies of cities other than the capital.
  • Raiders are Dragorian citizens that have completed their Dragon Lane training and are entitled to perform raids and looting.
  • Unmasked warriors are Dragorians that have not completed their Dragon Lane training. They can become squires of warriors but are not entitled to looting.

Customs

  • Upon the death of a king or a queen, a Dragaro ritual is performed again to determine the next ruler.
  • Each Dragorian family can send one child to attend the ten year old military training called Dragon Lane.
  • Dragoons and Raiders have looting benefits. Looting can also mean hostages as well as items.
  • Dragoons wear metallic masks that resemble different animals.
  • Dragorian women are named "Gold Drakes" after their marriage with a Dragorian man.
  • Dragorian soldiers are called "War Masks".
  • A woman that has been taken as loot, if married to a Dragorian, is named “Silver Drake”.
  • Bodies of citizens and of kings are cremated in Pyres or buried in cemeteries.
  • Dragorian women are considered equal to Dragorian men and are entitled to the same military training.
  • Combat training of the Dragorians is considered their highest virtue.
  • A wedding ceremony among Dragorians lasts for three days and is celebrated with feasts and dances.
