The Legend of the Heart of Gold
Goldhart is by far the biggest of the three Kingdoms and the oldest. There is no settlement in Goldhart that doesn’t have a big shrine for worship for at least one of the eight prevalent gods and religion plays a big part in every routine they do. Their laws are govern by it, their songs and literature are all inspired by religion and everything seems to be up to the almighty gods. Goldhart seems particularly blessed and the one thing that everyone talks about to non believes is that they have a real Avatar- a special child that is born blessed with the gifts of the gods. No one knows for sure all of his power but one thing is for certain- the gods are real and the Avatar is the mouth piece for all of them.
Capital City: Ravenhart
Heartkin is run by the counsel of mages who has a representative in each of their settlements that take a trip for biannual reports. Heartkin was founded by people who couldn’t live in Goldhart’s highly religious atmosphere and who either believed the Avatar would destory Goldhart or was a myth. Heartkin has the biggest libraries and many travel all over to go the three of the main libraries for studies- it also has the third greatest mage school in the North that is located only a days travel from it’s capital. While Heartkin is viewed favorable, there are settlements where their people don’t feel like their voices are heard. Humanoids who live in Heartkin but are not magical feel like they’re needs aren’t being met or completely ignored and their is a talk of a rebellion but it’s such soft a rumor that it seems like a non threat for now.
Capital City: Goatstone
Hardstone is where low level criminals come to thrive- for every good person who is in this kingdom there is at least three ne’erdowells who are looking for trouble. There is no way to clean up the streets of this land and even though it’s the smallest of the three Kingdom (and it prefers the term Empire) it is the one that gets the worst and most attention from neighboring places- bringing a bad name to Goldhart and Heartkin a like. The thieves guild is located here although it’s not on any map.
Capital City: Atra City
