Vaasa

If a huge swamp could be a country all it’s own, it’d be Vaasa. On the west side of the Galena Mountains, Vaasa is broken wasteland, much of it desolate, wet, and swamp-filled. Surprisingly, it has a larger number of settlements than Damara, tho that is more due to politics than geography. Settlements are small, mostly mining communities, each ruled by a despotic Warlock Knights. The Warlock Knights don’t get along very well, so feuding WKs build there own stronghold. It’s a feudal system, just minus the over-seeing King, Duke, etc. Or is it? Often spoken of in whispers, the Voice of Telos is rumored to be the “guiding hand” behind the Warlock Knight’s “loose” organization. Who or what IS the Voice of Telos? No one seems to know for sure.

The people of Vaasa are mostly slaves. Because of this, refugees often move in large numbers to the neighboring kingdoms seeking freedom.

No one is quite sure what the criteria for Warlock Knight status is, or what their power source is. Warlock Knights have been known to be fighters, mages, necromancers, rogues, you name it. One truth is known, their abilities are enhanced by a strange magical source, perhaps arcane, perhaps divine, perhaps even otherworldly. They are fearsome opponents, driven by greed and a lust for power. They subjugate the meek, enslave the able-bodied, and destroy anyone who opposes their rule, even their own. They feud constanly, vying for some vague and mysterious ranking or position within their "organization’, some would call a cult.
