GeographyEdit

TopographyEdit

Corthin stretches across the Cothin Peninsula in the south-east region of Darvasi between the Larian Sea and the Strait of Sossel. The topography is considered one of the most hospitable in the region. The Emerald Hills cover the southern half of the kingdom with green rolling hills, while the Sapphire Lake was considered one of the most beautiful places in the entire region.

The terrain also contains an abundance of natural resources. The Endless Wheat Fields supply grain for the entire country while the Dark Wood has been a supply of high quality lumber. The only blemish on the Corthin landscape seems to be the aptly named Tar Pits. These pits full of tar are avoided on general principle due to the vastly increased difficulty of travel and lack of value in the land.

ClimateEdit

The climate in Corthin is highly diverse. Most of the inland northern areas of Corthin have a climate often classified as Humid subtropical climate. The coastal areas of the peninsula can be very different from the interior higher altitudes and valleys, particularly during the winter months when the higher altitudes tend to be cold, wet, and often snowy. The coastal regions have mild winters and warm and generally dry summers, although lowland valleys can be quite hot in summer.

HistoryEdit

Early PeriodEdit

In the year 1492AL, a follower of Tempora named Corthin arrived in Southport. What he found was a people oppressed by their own corruption and greed. He started the first church of Tempora in the region. Eventually, the followers of Tempora elevated Corthin to the ruler of Southport. The city and church started reaching out for followers in near by towns.

After many years, several independent city-states had joined what came to be know as the Corthin Kingdom. Several barbarian tribes began to harass the kingdom. In response, King Corthin created a large army to hold back the barbarians. Once the borders were secure, the Corthin Kingdom continued converting near-by towns with missionaries. Any cities that proved resistant to preachings about Tempora were conquered by the expanding kingdom's ever expanding army.

By the time that King Corthin died, his kingdom had grown as far north as the Dark Wood and Sapphire Lake. The kingdom continued to flourish under the rule of King Corthin's many heirs. The Corthin Kingdom was able to maintain a large army and healthy economy due to its abilities to be self-sufficient using the abundance of natural resources in the Dark Wood and Endless Wheat Fields. The continuing success has led the Corthin Kingdom to become what is considered the most powerful state in all of Darvasi. Several kingdoms have attempted to usurp the Corthin Kingdom, but the kingdom's large and well trained army has successfully driven off all foes.

Recent EventsEdit

The most recent assault against the Corthin kingdom, in the year 3624, was a coalition led by the Dröst Empire. The war ended in the Battle of Heath. The entire city along with most of both armies were destroyed when several magi managed to create a magical blast stronger than any that had been seen before, or since.

In recent years, the kingdom had been under constant attack from creature from the Tar Pits. Eventually an army was sent in to conquer the wasteland to purge the threat. Research is currently being performed to determine if the Tar Pits really have and inherent value or not.

GovernmentEdit

The Corthin Kingdom is a hereditary monarchy ruled by one monarch. Each monarch rules until death upon which a divining ceremony is performed. The ceremony is performed by the High Priests of Tempora to ask for her to grant them their next monarch. Should Tempora determine that the current monarchy is not fit to rule, she calls the High Priests to replace the current monarch with a replacement that she has chosen.
