Land, Climate, and Building: The lands of Choisi Kingdom consist of a variety of islands in varying sizes. Their islands are, most of the time, very tropical and warm. Winters for them, unless close to the mainland, is rarely involving snow and rarely very cold. When Choisians build something besides a ship, typically what they will live on, it is houses on stilts, connected by docks, in the water and throughout the islands. These houses are mainly made out of materials easily found in a tropical climate such as palm fronds, grass, wood, driftwood, some stones, etc. The houses are often accented by florals or items found in the ocean. Though they have farmlands it is smaller than most of the kingdoms and, of course, with crops more suitable to the warmer climates Choisi Kingdom has. (OOC: An image example is included)
About the people (Stereotypical): Those of Choisi are pretty go with the flow. They often travel across Atharia. In general, they do not really care to be against any kingdom, instead they try to support all of them. This makes them pretty neutral people. Though they have settled land who lives in their lands tends to change quite often due to the nomadic ways. It is not often that Choisi Kingdom will start a conflict. This does not mean that they are weak people, they just don't like to be forced into something that is not fun for them.
How Ruler is Determined: Choisi doesn't really care if the heir is male or female nor whether they are the oldest or not. They determine which child of the ruler will be the heir by their devotion to the kingdom and by how much initiative they take.
Story: Rona decided to travel towards the waters and lay claim to the islands there. A fair amount of people decided to follow Rona, as they believed she was meant to be the proper heir. Rona and her people felt that the Gods would let them know if they were on the right path to appeasing them, so they weren’t overly concerned about ‘solving’ the issues. Though they built cities, towns, and villages on the islands they never truly lingered long in any of them. They enjoyed taking boats and traveling the oceans, rivers, lakes, and any other body of water they could put their boats on and travel along. They did a lot of fishing and seemed more interested in letting the other kingdoms being established do their own thing. They preferred not to take any side. The nomadic kingdom of Rona became known as Choisi and Rona became their Queen, as expected. Ossian admired their neutral attitude towards the other kingdoms and their deep respect for the animals and creatures of the waters. He blessed them. They gained long ears, had slender builds, and became quite short. The people of Choisi believed this was to allow them to travel the waters better.
At the start of magic Queen Brielle took over for Rona after she died of age. Brielle witnessed the full establishing of the kingdoms, the Gods giving the mortals magic and then passed down, after retiring, her title to King Soren whose title then passed down, upon Soren's death, to King Kylian. At his death the current Queen, Missiah, started her reign and has been Queen since.
