Tanaria, after many years of war, death, and suffering, has finally reached an era of peace... At least as close as that is possible. The kingdom of Palarta. the city build itself from a small fishing community, to the strongest kingdom in the known land. Another reason for its current status, is because it houses one of the most beautiful women in nobility, and her position as a princess, adds to that reason. Many noble Lords and Princes rush to the land, spending more and more gold in an attempt to win her over, simply adding more wealth to the city. Palarta is separated into three districts. The castle, and the buildings surrounding it, The district of Light, where the nobility and wealthy live. The center, and the main market, The district of Stone, the general housing of commoners, inns, brothels, all trade and craft. And finally, toward the southeast of the city, the District of Water, where the cites Docks are located, along with other, non civilized individuals are housed. Palarta, is located in the center of Tanaria, and generally welcomes all races. Surrounding the northern, and eastern kingdoms, is the forest known as "Deaths Shadow" Nicknamed by its unique tendency to constantly remain dark. It is infamous for housing most of the worlds bandits and rouges, and the occasional Dark mage. There are few towns, and those few are heavily fortified into small City-State like castles. They generally serve as market areas, a place for travelers to stop and rest up, with the occasional house or two. Each city state is governed by its own set of laws, and its own Ruler, but are strictly loyal to the Kingdom they are currently resident in. The Plains of Hallan. Is by far the most peaceful land in all of Tanaria. It is believed that it is in fact the celestial burial ground of a long forgotten god. The plants that grow here are among the rarest in the world, and naturally cannot be picked. The 'Flowers of Dreams' are a rich purple color, with a glowing pollen that erases all thoughts of violence. Not much is known, as the flowers simply cannot be touched, an unnatural aura simply pushes away any attempts to harm the plant. But few who have touched its petals, described it to be the most heavenly feeling on this world. The plains of Hallan, are between the western kingdoms, and stretch to the borders of Palarta. Sunaria, is the kingdom of the Elves, otherly known as 'The Palace of Water'. It is located West of Palarta, just outside The Plains of Hallan. It rules under a public law, having no king or queen. The city is rich in Mithril ore, and Sunstone, the second most rarest gem in the world. It glows with a spiritual light, which alternates from white, to gold. The Elves here are kind, and welcome all travelers with open arms, but do not allow them to stay forever, and usually require them to leave within a few years. But all Elves, even mixed with other races, and allowed to stay as long as they like. The town is equally balanced, and is only separated by water, its residents generally able to easily survive. Toward the north, is what is simply explained as "Hell". Not much is known, as few people have ever returned, those that did, claim its impossible to live there, but have found strange, glowing buildings embedded into the land. Generally, the only life that allows itself to be seen is the occasional lava, or fire dragon. Located deep inside 'Hell' is whats known as the "Devils doorstep'. Nobody has ever ventured this far, but have only seen glimpses of it far miles away, during brief clearing in the volcanic ash. It is covered with demons, and is the only area where even the Dwarves refuse to travel, under no circumstances. The Mountains of Tornavan, are nearly the opposite of 'Hell'. Equally unforgiving, but much, much colder. Featuring general polar wildlife, ice dragons, and Witches of the White. Its infamous for its large count of feral undead, for it borders the Leayth. It generally makes up the southern, and far east side of Tanaria, stretching far back into the unknown world. Far into Tornavan, is the land of the Leayth, the world of the Undead. Skeletons, Gargoyles, Vampires, Wraiths, anything that is living a non-living life, resides here. Only one man has ever made it back alive, and has never spoken a word since that time. The kingdom of Almular, is the homeland for humans. Unlike Palarta, Almular's King, Josavier Devona, sets his greedy eyes on every opportunity for wealth, and is often at war with itself. Though despite its troublesome king, was once the start of Tanaria, and produces many kind hearted Humans, who want nothing more than peace. Located southeast of Palarta, bordering the Tornavan mountains. Gro'deshir. Is the industrial capital of the world. Located northwest, along the Fields of Hallan, and the mountians of Hell. It houses the lands Orcs, Goblins, and Dwarves, having formed a rather stringy alliance in an attempt to bring science to the world. Due to each race's grump nature, the alliance is thin, and few travelers stay for long.
