Paths of Gaeda
The northern empire of Men. Highly centralized, it is overseen by the Emperor from his Imperial Seat in the city of Aquilon, though there is also has a senate and some other representational institutions for the major landowning nobility. Rumors (spread mostly among the people of Phar-Shekem) speak of an evil, intolerant political inquisition which secretly controls the empire. Halflings are common in this land. Cultural Touchstone: Late Roman Europe, Greek Polytheism.
