Leonen

Realm of Strife™ > Lore  > Norlanin > Leonen

Current Ruler: King Rhoman IV of House Videaus

A densely populated human kingdom made up of seven provinces, each ruled by a Duke or Duchess, but all owing fealty to the King of Leonen. The nation has seen much political turmoil throughout its history due to a vast assortment of scheming nobles, but stands strong despite itself. While predominately human many other races make their home in Leonen and are welcomed as citizens.

The use of Spiritual powers of magic have been completely outlawed in Leonen after an unfortunate incident almost 100 years ago, called the Mage Rebellion, when a corrupt Archmage attempted to overthrow the King. If discovered, practitioners of the Spiritual arts are offered two choices: exile or death. Most choose exile.
