In The River Country
The Rose Kingdom of Lyria
The Rose Kingdom of Lyria lies to the west of The River Country. Her current ruler is King Marktham Ullhes IV, known for his keen sense of justice and his determination. The Rose Kingdom is a land of wide foothills, low woodlands, and high cliffs. They are renowned for the quality of their cuisine, their wine, and their weapons. Her citizens tend to be individualistic and stubborn.
In The Rose Kingdom, owning slaves is a mark of status: many noble houses keep at least a dozen or more household slaves. Many merchants and other middle-class families keep a couple. Literate slaves can be extremely valuable, since literacy is not a wide-spread skill.
