From Atharia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

While the Seat of Gods is not considered a Kingdom is is a place people can be from and it is a fairly large bit of land. The people of the Seat of the Gods are considered neutral and holy because they /did/ decide to stay in the Seat of Gods. They don't really have a hierarchy like the kingdoms but they do have 'people in charge', which is typically considered the Clergy and the Head Courtesan. The Clergy and Courtesans are considered to be the most powerful people in the Seat of the Gods. There are no heirs, they don't really export anything and their 'imports' are generally what the kingdoms and families bring to gift them for letting them stay in Tranquil City. If what the people of the Seat of the Gods is not gifted or found in the lands, they purchase it from the Kingdoms.

They do have a military but it is far smaller than those of the Kingdoms and, really, most of the time they are just tending to the needs of Tranquil City and the land of the seat of the Gods. They can not win a battle but they can hold their own until reinforcements arrive, namely the Kingdoms. It is unlikely that the Kingdoms will attack the holy land but there are outside threats. Each kingdom also believes it is in their own benefit that the Seat of the Gods stay well protected, even from each other if need be. Of all the places to be the Seat of the Gods is probably safest in all of Atharia.

It is said a great deal of artifacts, places of interest, and mythical creatures can be found in the Seat of the Gods, whether that is true or not is unclear so far. The land is not really claimed by anyone, not even the residents of Tranquil City, nor has it really been closely explored. It is considered holy land so people delve into the lands with more caution than they would the lands claimed by the kingdoms. The only town/city/village/etc that has been fully developed, so far, in the Seat of the Gods is Tranquil City. The rests are mostly little houses or communities with some sort of vague leadership.

The nobility of Seats God consists mostly of people from the Kingdoms. However, there are some people bornin the seat of the Gods addressed as nobility. They do not have any land or 'titled' positions like the kingdoms. As with all considered nobility they do recall their past lives. The nobles of Seat of Gods are typically in positions like 'Mayor of a Community' or whatever. Sure, none of these positions have any true power nor are they truly anything 'official' but it is a sign of respect to those that are part of the Seat of Gods and meet the criteria that the people of Atharia hold for nobility.
