Keepers of Arden
Arden is the northernmost kingdom of humans. Little is known about the people of Arden before the nomadic tribes began settling cities in an effort to protect themselves from predators. In 3577 the city of LorHaven was founded on Arden’s delta to set up trade with neighboring countries. After explorations up river, the city of Orhan was founded in the northern valley of Arden twenty-two years later. Exploration, plundering of natural resources, and simple population expansion led to the creation of a number of newer cities within Arden. It is mostly known for it’s impenetrable mountains which has caused it to become a safe haven during times of war. It is also known for its army and the hierarchy of ranks that it entails. When one enlists in the service of the Master of Arden they become one of the Keepers of Arden.
