Era of Upheaval
One of the Five Powers of Darastra, Agarad is a nation ruled by King Kalrus that is proud of its martial heritage and is the oldest of the Five Powers. It was founded by the Wyvern king over two thousand years ago. The nation is particularly noted for its widespread use of Lycanthrope and Dragonborn soldiers during the Last War and also the ruthless dictatorship of its monarch.
After the Wyvern King’s defeat at the hands of the alliance of Elves of Valoran, Holy see and adventurers, Agarad’s people (former slaves and soldiers of the wyvern king) were freed from the wyvern king’s tyrannical rule. The Marquisate of Valencia, a small nation, has declared an heir apparent of Agarad born of the wyvern king’s many consorts. Thus, King Kalrus III Ascended to the throne.
King Kalrus III
One of the oldest human nations on Darastra, Agarad was built on a strong military tradition, one that carries on to this day. Agarad supports a heavy middle class with plenty of trade businesses running in the large cities s throughout the western region of the country. Every Agarad citizen is forced into compulsory military service lasting at least two years. While many turn this service into a life-long career, others are quick to fulfill their duty and begin their actual lives. Most interesting about Agarad society is their use of Lycanthropes and Dragonborn. There are no qualms about slavery in Agarad and the forces of the military in the Last War were bolstered by these forces. The summers are hot, short and wet while the winters are long, bitterly cold and full of snow.
