The Trident

The kingdoms of the Trident empire were cut off of the main lands of the human kingdoms of Central Vitallia and slowly merged into an alliance among themselves. Several city-states maintain this alliance and dominate the southern seas from Revedon to Eidon. The Southern Seas and their islands are truly the stuff of legend. After Mascardi Berio's expedition of the 21 Seagulls, the stories were spread among the kingdoms like wildfire, giving the islands great reputation. Seafarers, travelers, adventures and pirates now roam the seas of the Trident Empire, a crossing point of many civilizations!

Geography

The Trident Empire is located in the Southern Seas. It stands beneath Lothen and the rest of the Human Kingdoms, west of Exotia and east of Vespia Sea and the perilous western continent of Vitallia.

Structure

  • A Sea Lord is the emperor of all the kingdoms of the empire and has the highest rank of authority. The empire has its own sigil, above kingdom and family sigils.
  • A King or a Queen is a figure of absolute authority in their own kingdom. Each kingdom retains its independence unless the empire is threatened. A king or queen may bear their kingdom’s sigil under the empire’s sigil.
  • Stewards are in charge of cities beyond the capital, they serve as authority figures locally without possessing a sigil of their own. They pay taxes to the king or queen and have the right to adjust the taxes of their cities.
  • Aristocrats are wealthy and often powerful individuals due to their influence. They are usually owners of several establishments and possess a number of ships. Often they are retired sailors or captains that have been rewarded for their many years of service. They cannot bear their own sigils but can possess a keep or a castle of limited military force serving as a personal guard.
  • Middle class citizens are entitled to a small piece of land in order to produce and trade their own goods and paying tribute to the local lords.
  • Low class citizens provide labor in other peoples’ lands in exchange for a small salary. They are not entitled to any land and have limited rights that vary from city to city.

Customs

  • Kings and Queens declare among them a Sea Lord who is entitled a vote of double worth when it comes to decisions regarding the empire. The sea lord elected is usually the one with the strongest and largest fleet.
  • The throne of each kingdom passes to the firstborn child.
  • Upon death of a Sea Lord, the title is elected among Kings or Queens.
  • The bodies of the dead are placed onto small vessels and are left to sail south with a golden coin.
  • The bodies of kings are placed on boats along with valuable items and are left to sail towards the Vespia Sea.
  • Kings maintain a share of independence regarding affairs of their city-states.
