Pact of the Levant Empires

- ELP -

In 1251, the Eturian, Shinseiko and Trigan Emperors signed the Treaty of Delos which aimed "to provide assistance against adversity" by creating a defensive alliance aimed at protecting their people from external aggression.

 

In their vision of a common future, this treaty is extended to the island of Kandorya and troops are sent to support their peoples on the island. Although difficult to sign in Kandorya, this alliance treaty applies since that date and seems to make even more sense on this hostile island.

Wishing to give a name to this union, the representatives of the three empires in Kandorya choose to call it the Pact of the Levant Empires and its citizens are called the Imperials. They decide to create a motto which will be “Never goes to bed”.

 

Since then, Eturia has defended the people against all their oppressors.

 

It considers that the best way to maintain its cohesion is discipline in order to promote order, peace and civilization. The army is one of the pillars of the Republic.

 

All citizens are equal in Eturia, there are no lower statuses for gender or race.

 

The Eturian people have a passion for their country and the pride of belonging to it: the betrayal of the state being experienced as a supreme affront which deserves the worst abuse.

 

The citizens of the Republic of Eturia proudly display its colors: red and black. Their armor is gleaming, mixing leather and metal.

 

Since its arrival in Kandorya in 1250, the Republic of Eturia has continued to grow, whether through alliances within the Pact of the Levant Empires or conquests. She continues to bring her civilizing light to the world.

 

 

What to play in the Republic of Eturia?

 

Style of play : Improbable mix of militaristic, proud but decadent Roman Empire and Kaamelott/Asterix.

 

Military :  The Army allows everyone to receive a minimum education during their four years of military service in the Legion and encourages meritocracy and advancement in their soldiers. Each Legionnaire receives a salary and can exercise within the army the trade of his choice.

 

Civilians : Whether priest, scholar, craftsman, or physician, all Eturians are fierce merchants and all are encouraged to develop their business acumen. All the professions or disciplines of magic are represented and excellence is the goal of each one.

 

Religious : With over 2000 gods, the Eturian pantheon is full of powerful gods such as Mialtus (god of pride, war and chief god) and quaint gods like Detritus (god of destruction and renewal) or Pattex (goddess of cohesion). Priests are highly respected and often as armed as the military.

 

Nobility : Examples for the people, they are in charge of the management of the territories of the Republic and can be civil or military.

 

Auxiliaries : Non-Eturians serving the Eturian people and working within the military, their equipment is left to their discretion, at heart they are still barbarians.

The Republic of Eturia

 

Before being a recognized power in Orya, the Republic of Eturia was a slave region of the Mulkesh Empire. In 900, the Tribune Mialtus Thorence led the legions of the province to revolt to help the Eturian people. In 904, he repulsed the mulkesh, founded the Republic of Eturia and achieved divine status.

Antinea and Noctéon reign supreme over the lives, souls and hearts of the triganes. Their representatives on earth are the Lucrecia and the Dominion. A trigan citizen is a devotee of the cults of Antinea and Nocteon, and no other. If he no longer has faith in them, and only in them, he ceases to be trigan.

The life of the triganes is deeply religious.

Antinea, the White Moon, is the goddess of life and even the darkest impulses. She encourages her followers to assume their deep nature and to live in harmony with who they are, without limit. It is by assuming and living their impulses that the triganes honor the Goddess. The clergy of Antinéa is in charge of justice and must come to terms with the fact that an instinctual act can be a prayer... This concept is difficult for foreigners to understand.

Noctéon, the Black Moon, is the Destroyer, god of pride, anger and violent death. All members of the army are part of the clergy of Noctéon,

The craftsmen, merchants, courtiers form the First Quarter while the incantors and the decanters form the Last Quarter.

The Trigane Nation remained a duotheist theocracy, a new pair of leaders chosen by the gods after the destruction of Orya.

The Trigan Empire

On the continent of Orya, the Theocratic Empire of Trigan stretched from the Marches of Aethor in the west to the Sea of Fangor in the east across the desert of Medjay. It was bordered to the north by Lin'Elenos and to the south by the Kingdom of Lormak and the Mogrim Sultanates. Many of its citizens are from these various countries.

Its capital was the mighty city of Trigan, seat of the temples of Antinea and Nocteon, and of the lodges of the First and Last Quarters.

Trigan today:

A Trigan delegation arrived in Kandorya with the first settlers and today has several strongholds. A member of the East Wind, she is a signatory to the Pact of the Levant Empires with the Republic of Eturia and the Shinseiko Empire. After the latter's departure, she remained in alliance with Eturia alone.
