Lothran Current Affairs

Unlike its southern neighbor, Lothran is a large,
wealthy realm. Bordered by the craggy Yarhoon to
the luthsurl, the slow-moving River Semphril to the
aerho, the mysterious depths of the Irdrakewater
to the sarrind, and the haunted eaves of Stormstars
Wood to the sekhovynd, Lothrannen seem to enjoy
their walls. This is even more apparent from the
numerous walled estates containing whimsical
faelorn (private mansions) which often house exiled
rulers of other realms and retired adventurers.
Lothran is known for near constant throne-strife
and unrest between the six hereditary dukedoms:
the Houses of Cormithal, Landaen, Randathjet,
Septrur, Telner, and Waern. This land epitomizes the
expression, “Live by the sword, die by the sword.”
Any Duke (hereditary or self-proclaimed) who has
the strength to take and hold the Greatkeep that
towers over Four Thrones may proclaim himself the
Grand Duke of Lothran. Though, there are caveats
that go along with it—including the necessity of
hunting down and slaying the former Grand Duke
or forcing him to renounce his throne before the
two senior Houses, Cormithal and Randathjet,
recognize the claim.
Lothran is a land of lush orchards and, more
importantly, lucrative trade routes—the Thaalride
and Raudar’s Way meet in Zroas of Many Markets.
These trade routes are well-guarded by the
disciplined and organized patrols of the Grand
Duke, Zorthsel Haramandras, a handsome man
whose striking features and ornate, but functional,
armor are readily recognized at a distance by all
Lothrannen. He is said to be shrewd, fearless, and
always vigilant for unfolding intrigues. I have not
met the man myself, but I believe the stories I’ve
heard. This Grand Duke will not be easily over
thrown.
