The Warring States
Atanasia is the rich heart of the continent. The great city is surrounded by fertile plains, wide rivers and shaded by lazy clouds. Sitting in the center of the Atana plain, Atanasia is the seat of the Atana’s power, where Atana XXV rules and his subjects continue to perfect art and culture. In the city are many important sites, such as the home of Atana the Wise, the three towers of office and the Hall of Justice, headquarters of the Atana Magistrates. The Atanasian people are wise and quick witted, never lacking in ideas and solutions. This makes them able businessmen, magistrates and soldiers, and well suited to rule the vast kingdom of their ancestors.
Atanasia processes the vast bureaucracy of the kingdom, sorting and collecting taxes and facilitating the operation of roadways, canals and other services provided by the royal government. In recent years they have also been responsible for Barnette’s accounts of harvest and have seen to the distribution of the agri-state’s food surplus. The Atana are also well known for their fine ale, wine and liquor.
Atana the Wise founded the city that would one day be the center of the world. Atanasians, regardless of blood, are insightful folk who are rarely unprepared when chaos strikes. The Atana themselves are great thinkers who are able to account for nearly any circumstance. The Valta are the spirited horse to the Atana’s wise owl, though their minds are sharp, they prefer to test them in the unpredictable forge of action. The Magara are use their mystic powers to always remain on guard for their betters.
