Children of the Hasty Nobles
The Edlen Empire
Consists of several city-states who have historically fought over land and control over the great lake Cordelia. What was a rag tag collection of communities has become a rapidly expanding empire. Resources from Cordelia and the rich surrounding farmland has allowed the empire to keep well stocked reserves and a ever increasing army because people no longer have to fight for food.
While still young compared to the other kingdoms, Edlen is quickly expanding to include all land inside the Teralyn mountain range that forms an almost complete wall around them. Edlen has begun constructing towers and outposts along the base of the mountains and popular passes to form an protective ring around the entire empire. Given time this protective ring and ample food supply will make Edlen the foremost power on the continent.
The main threat the empire has is the creatures that live in the mountains. What was once just the occasional encounter or two has become an almost constant battle. The increased presence of evil was one of the factors that led to the various communities coming together but their empires growth could invite more creatures to come out of the mountains.
