The Kingdom of Keoland
Image

Keoland Map Scale: 1 Hex = 30 miles

The Kingdom of Keoland is located in the Flanaess, the easternmost part of the vast continent Oerik, on the sphere of Oerth. The region is called the Sheldomar Valley and is almost completely enclosed by mountains until it reaches the Azure Sea. There are two great rivers, the Sheldomar and the Javan, to water these fertile lands between; the Crystalmist and Lortmil mountain ranges. Besides foodstuffs, the realm’s other economic resources include cloth, gems, and gold. The climate here is warm and mild, and many elves, dwarves, gnomes, and halflings live in peace alongside human farmers and lords.

The Kingdom is a Feudal Monarchy, lead by His Peerless Majesty, King Kimbertos Skotti, a good and lawful man from one of the royal houses. He holds his court in Niole Dra for life with great powers and authority at his disposal. However, officially the government is a permanent regency, ruled in the trust of the noble houses. This deliberative body, composed of the major nobility and heads of certain long-established guilds and societies in the kingdom, has the responsibility over matters of rights and obligations on the part of the citizenry, whether lowborn or high. There are over two dozen major provinces within Keoland, with a total population of roughly 1.8 million people, only 75% are human. The people are predominantly good or lawful by nature and worship a variety of gods. Many priesthoods are present in the realm, though religion has never been a dominant force in the kingdom. For most of Keoland’s history, the study of magic was banned to its common citizenry, and its practice was restricted to secret societies and certain nobles. Although this is no longer the case (the King has a powerful wizard as an advisor), little evidence is seen by the casual observer of powerful wizards’ magic, as commoners fear those who practice the arcane arts.

The Kingdom of Keoland

Viscounty of Salinmoor

There are two significant geographic regions in southern Keoland; the Dreadwood and the Hool Marshes.

The Dreadwood: This large forest stretches across the southernmost provinces of Keoland, just north of the
Hool Marshes. A royal writ grants control of most of the forest to the elves, who administer and protect it on behalf of the crown. Efforts are mounted to clear this forest of evil creatures, but these have failed time and again. Raiders from the Sea Princes and nonhumans from the Hool Marshes use the wood to attack southern Keoland. The elves and royal garrisons battle these invaders at great cost. The wood is also home to the Great Druidess of the Sheldonar Valley, Reynard Yargrove (worships Obad-Hai), who is an ally to the cause of the elves.

The Hool Marshes: The Hool Marshes are infested with every natural danger, from animal predators to diseases, and is favored by monsters for its shelter. Only desperate people flee into the Hool, knowing the dangers posed by the native lizard folk, but with civil war in the Sea Princes’ lands, many are desperate these days. Disturbing tales say that cults dedicated to demon princes such as Orcus and Dagon have developed here. Keoish scouts patrol the northern banks when possible.
