Nations continued

Hello, Endale fans! If you liked the details on our first few nations, you are sure to enjoy these next few.

Causean – The country of Causean is home to the Lowland Barbarians.  Master mariners and ship builders, this race of Endale is best known for their golden shorelines, teaming with the finest crafted ships. Although craftsmen by trade, their harbors are notorious safe havens for various pirates and criminals. As Endale’s center for black market goods and ill-favored guests, their capital city has been suitably named The City of Thieves.

Nydelimma – Against the common principles of the Lowlanders, the Highland Barbarians, noble and humble farmers, are proud to call Nydelimma their home. Supplying Endale with large harvests and livestock, these people pride themselves on fertile soil and prime cattle. These people are also highly noted for their skills with a bow, axe and sword alike. Powerful warriors and diligent farmers, what better to compliment their wealthy contribution to Endale’s people than being the finest producers of potent spirits and wine.

Ales – Located in the northeast mountain terrain of Endale, Ales proves a fortified home for the Dwarves. Along with the natural protection of the mountains, comes a rich lode of minerals and rare metals, making the Dwarves the finest miners and metal workers in Endale. These Dwarven craftsmen are Endale’s main source of the finest weaponry, armor and jewelery, proving to be the wealthiest country. You will never hear of a Dwarf who could refuse a frothy mug of cold brew. Along with their weapon trade, Ales is home to the biggest breweries in the World. Lifetime friends of the Highland Barbarians for their shared passion, these Dwarves are never at a loss to invite all to come celebrate the new brewing season.

I hope you all like the reveal of Endale’s nations up to now! Please, leave us your critiques and questions below and always check in to see our progress on the development of Endale Adventures!

The world of Endale has taken form!

Allow me to introduce the “Nations of Endale” as seen on this overhead continental map.

Edalend – Known to most as the largest Capital of Endale, Edalend is the eldest home of Humans. King Lukas, ruler and arguably the most understanding of Endale’s leaders, oversees his land without heavy concern over petty differences. It is a land where many races can call home and the economy is bolstered by its trade with the other various nations across Endale. Trade agreements with the northern Dwarves of Ales, the woodland Elves of Telanyth, and the Barbarians beyond the Elder Woods, make Edalend a hub for the world’s finest offering of Endale’s resources.

Telanyth – The largest of the Elven nations, Telanyth is the primary home of the Woodland Elves. Noted artisans of all craft they produce, carpentry and architecture are among their most skilled trades. Contrary to their keen eye for detail and structure, this nation seems to be filled with political turmoil and distrust. Although considered one of Endale’s greatest nations, Telanyth is teetering on the edge of a dull blade. King Tyrrin is what keeps this proud nation from folding in on itself.

Lith – Where many have coined the term “Desert Elf”, these Elves prefer their ascended title as the Lith Elf. The Lith is the flowing desert that lies North of Edalend. These nomadic Elves are not united by a solitary capital, instead broken into smaller, tribal units ruled over by the one, Chief Thoron, the Eagle of the Lith. Among rare desert flowers and vast gilded geodes used for jewelcraft, the Lith Elf craft of most worth in Endale is the breeding of the majestic Arid Stallion.

Nyr – The nation of the Shadow Elves, Nyr(pronounced Nire) stands as a firm, formidable ally to Edalend. These nocturnal Elves are praised as skillful alchemists and scientists, boasting a vast knowledge of medicines and healing remedies. Their nation, guided by Lord Daray, has benefited greatly due to the peace treaty between themselves, Telanyth, and the Dwarven nation, Ales. The treaty has alloted them the privilege of travel and trade without hinderance from neighboring nations, likewise strengthening their resolve.
