Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
No society could have such a powerful army in its midst without that army coming to rule the land – and over the last nine hundred years, that’s exactly what happened. The Lords Marshal, the highest commander in the Amyklai, realized it requires more than strong arms and sharp weapons to defend the land from barbarians. A Lord Marshal must make sure the land isn’t consumed by in-fighting and that the inhabitants have enough food to eat – never a sure thing in the harsh clime of the land south of The Cold Peaks and other necessities.
But the rule of the Amyklai is lenient, the Lord Marshal rarely delivers outright commands to the villages named in the truce. The towns and villages can organize their own governments and take care of their local concerns however they see fit so long as it doesn’t jeopardize themselves or their neighbors. The primary concern of the Amyklai is keeping the barbarians of the Crumble from ravaging the towns, and to a lesser extent, keeping the towns under their care from fighting each other.
