10 City States
Rapolis, the largest city state, the forefront of culture, philosophy, drama, and the arts.
Naxdos, a military city state primarily inhabited by Lizardfolk. They use cold logic to defeat their enemies with deadly efficiency. They have recently destroyed three city states, Crotalia, Herimo, Ash and Gold.
Andrine, center for trade. They have some of the largest stockpiles of goods purely because they offer the lowest tax rates for imports. Some people make a living just by buying and selling goods in the grand market.
Dina, the worlds bread basket. They have cultivated flood plains for rice. Ample grazing space makes them perfect for livestock and agriculture. Dina is currently under the protection of Naxdos.
Bampos was a settlement started by people from Rapolis, however with the incredible goods coming from Dina and Rizoy, Bampos is shrinking.
Apake, the home of science and philosophy. It is a protectorate of Rapolis.
Rizoy is exploiting the ample forests around it to make superior ships. The wood is hardened and makes for longer lasting ships.
Demodes is the gates to the gods. The oracle is guarded there as the mountains keep her close to the home of the gods. Currently under the protection of Naxdos.
Epididnae, is a settlement from Rizoy looking to find more space for people to live away from the world.
Abai, the island of the dead. The gates to the underworld are guarded by the dead and the priests of the underworld. Resurrection magic only works on the island.
