Talion was the first nation to secede from the Korannon empire, and still believes the other nations are antagonistic towards them. They use their hold on the river mouth to control trade to many of the other nations. Rebels in the south have seized the Verian silver mines, and declared independence. The unclaimed land to their west is filled with dangerous animals, including several vicious goblin tribes. Talion is ruled by a King, who is aided and regulated in his rule by a High Council of the major noble families.
