An overview of the various large entities (kingdoms/empires/etc.)

Bergatino Peninsula

Thus called after the city of Bergatine, formally occupied by the Divine Empire under the Kingdom of Saule. Bergatine was formerly the administrative area for the Divine Emperor, thus giving the peninsula this name.

Bergatino City States

This refers to numerous city states in the north of the Bergatino Peninsula. Establishing themselves as centers of trade and finance, they gained more attention from the Divine Empire around the year 1100, shortly after the First Entrada to the land of the First Prophet. They were for several centuries organized as the Kingdom of Saule under the Divine Empire. Following the Orendal Assembly of 1148 when Emperor Nikolaus I attempts to assert further rights and claims over the cities, they rebel and begin a series of conflicts. In retribution, in 1152, the Divine emperor raises Bertine to the ground. Realizing the necessity of unification, the Saule Pact is signed in 1155. This culminates in the Battle of Montero in 1166, and a five year truce is signed by the cities with the Emperor. It is the Peace of Vinchia, of 1176, that establishes the cities as autonomous. Most of the great noble houses of the cities establish republics, which exist today.

Paragon States

The Paragon States refers to a group of cities and realms loyal to the de facto leader of the Paragons of the Three Divinities (The Divinity). Initially established in 420 when the Savon Empire embraced the faith of the Paragons of the Three Divinities, the church has maintained control of this region. The head of the church controls the city of Savo, near the western coast of the peninsula.

Often times quarreling with the Divine Emperor, they generally join cause on the Entrada's of the Empire to the Land of the First Prophet. Following the incursion into the northern portions of the peninsula, the Paragon States gave support to the cities in an effort to remove the Divine Empire. Prior to this incursion, centuries past saw the Paragon States at odds with the Eastern Empire since the schism of 450 when the Eastern Empire embraced one Divinity (the Sect of Communion) and established the Eastern Tradition faith. Subsequent to incursions of the Eastern Empire, the Paragon States has dealt with incursions of the Kataro Empire and its radical faith, the Faith of the First Dawn.

Kingdoms of Borzia and Calpera

These kingdoms had been claimed by the Kataro Empire, establishing its own authority several centuries ago here. Initially known as the Kingdom of Calpera. After the 6th Entrada, nobles and mercenaries from Navagerse had stayed with their noble hosts. When one of the Kingdoms across the Catellus Sea had come to collect tribute, the Navagerse watched as the nobles sought to gather what was demanded. They took charge, attacking and driving back the Kataro Kingdoms from the south of the penninsula. This began a centuries long conquest of Calpera by which the Navagerse established the Kingdom of Borzia.

Santos Corta, to the west across the Catellus joined cause, fighting its own battles against the Katao Kingdoms in their land and fighting to claim the seas near their home, joined the Navagerse. They have claimed the island near the Kingdom of Borzia and have retained the Kingdom of Calpera as a sovereign vassal.


After the fall the Savon Empire, when the entire western Empire seemed to be collapsing, there came Avelino. Uniting the peoples to the north west of Bergatino, a second leader of the Divinity was proclaimed, creating a schism. This leader in turn proclaimed Avelino the Divine Emperor in the year 815. Avelino lead an Entrada to Savo to exact tribute from the Paragon States. Eventually driven back to their lands, the title Divine Emperor fell out of use here, though the descendants of Avelino control the monarchy/kingdom of Avicorse.


A kingdom allied and to the north of Avelino. Initially settled by sea raiders from north of the current realms of the Divine Emperor, the Navagerse have turned to maritime trade and conquest as the ancestors before them. In recent centuries, they have made conquest of the Kingdom of Calpera of the southern portion of the Bergatino Peninsula. They helped drive back the Faith of the First Dawn and the Kingdoms of Kataro. Afterwhich, they continued to settle and make conquest of the Kingdom of Calpera on the mainland. They have established here the Kingdom of Borzia. Presently they are in conflict with Santos Corta, a kingdom which holds several large islands in the western Catellus Sea, including what is left of the Kingdom of Calpera.

Divine Empire

King Theobald of the peoples north of the peninsula reclaims the title of Divine Emperor in the year 970, assuring the succession of the Divine Empire. They have long standing quarrels with the Paragon State over authority of the Divinity. As Emperor Avelino had favored the Sect of the Exoneration, so too did King Theobald. The Divine Empire holds authority by divine lineage, a monarchy. This is the basis of much of the quarreling with the Paragon States. While united to drive back the Faith of the First Dawn, the two often unite in Entrada to the Land of the First Prophet, but when they return, the squabbles reignite. A century ago they were driven out of the north by the Saule Pact that established the autonomous authority of the Bergatino City States.
