Silk

Slaver Nation

  • Population: 40% Elf, 30% Human, 20% Half-Elf, 10% Other
  • Climate: Silk is a country with a very arid climate and almost no rainy season. It is one of hottest countries in Acosta and crossing its nearly endless desert without experience is suicide. With almost no winter to speak of, there is very little respite from Silk’s heat and the people that live there work hard to combat these hardships.
  • Description: Silk is a land of sand seas and burning sun, a place where slavery is common and Sorcerer Kings rule. Next to Sledge, Dis, and Kobuto, Silk is one of the oldest nations in Dominia. Long ago Pharaohs and Sultans ruled Silk mercilessly, but after the 1000 years of tyranny under Dis, they elected to use darker powers to protect their kingdom. During the final years of the former Dis Empire, a mysterious dragon offered to free the citzens of Silk from Dis and bring them under his protection. A few of the more influential members of Silk at the time made a pact with this dragon and offered him something as tribute for the power to rule small portions of the nation. Now the dragon has set up home in Silk as Sultan of the Sand, and the ones whom he gave power for tribute; rule large chunks of land for him. Silk’s elite caste is almost exclusively the elves that are native to the country and hold most of the power. Half-Elves are the next in succession with the lucky ones taking some of the better slaves jobs while the unlucky ones being sent off to Kuboto. Human’s in Silk are a different matter and the bulk of them are used as the rest of the slave stock that keeps Silk running. Other races are either treated like outsiders, or sold into slavery. Right now Silk is at war with its old nemesis Dis, both going for each others throats with abandon. One thing is for sure, with one of Dragonee’s elder dragons backing them up, Silk is in a much better position then 1000 years ago to defeat their long born enemy.
  • Government: Draconic Feudalism, with Sorcerer Kings paying tribute to a Dragon Emperor in exchange for rule over small parts of Silk and power.
