Annals of Aldamere
Civ -1, Wealth +2, Might 0, Territory +1
The River Ketharus serves as the main artery for commerce into and out of the heartland of Hanzmir. Since the fall of the High Kingdom of Arfane no one nation has controlled the length of the river. Over a dozen small squabbling states lay claim to portions of the river – as a whole they are known as the Ketharin States. Beyond geography and jealousy there is little that unites them. Each local lord sees him, or herself, as sovereign and without peer.
Hate for Almeryss is strong in the Kethrun States, many of which have seen invasion and subjugation over the centuries. There is also little love for the Misty Islanders or the Nothlanders — whose ships often raid here.
