Taldor is all that is left of a once-powerful empire that has fallen from its former glory. A history steeped in a stories of knights on heroic and righteous quests, it is now a place where rival nobles battle each other with bitter knights and proxy armies for personal power instead of honor
Sharing a border with the Kelesh satrapy of Qadira, the two countries exist barely in a state of truce, with war a distinct possibility over even the smallest slight. Separated by only a river, the two nations have a long history of skirmishes. The most infamous of these, known as the Grand Campaign, began in 4079 AR with Qadira invading, and lasted for over 500 years. This war provided the opportunity for the province of Cheliax to break away from the Taldan Empire, and annexing the provinces of Andoran, Galt, and Isger.
