Kingdom of Highwind

Kingdom of Highwind


Highpeak Castle

The ancestral home of the Valkyries, Highwind, is a large island inside a massive fjord in north darastra. Its capital, Highpeak is in the heart of this island atop a rockbed. The country borders Cydia to the east with kyros and Hu in the south.

Territories

Highwind occupies a rich territory of fertile farmland in the mainland bordering the Haradra Mountains. The city, Einheria produces most of the trade and is the gate to the eastern kingdoms by sea. Highwind was the only kingdom not to lose territory during the treaty of Valenor. One of the first mortal kingdoms, Highwind is a militant nation that specialize in cavalry. In the past, legions of highwind knights rode atop mighty gryphons. The art of breeding these creatures in captivity are all but now lost through time. Only royalty and high ranking officials are provided such prized mounts.
