Darkness Falls: Livernia
Hemmed in by the Fang mountains to the west and north west with the sea of glaciers above and the dangerous hammerfell seas to the east the nation of Livernia is hemmed in on all sides.
The land itself is damp and cold with large swathes of dense forests and marshes covering much of the land . Many of the towns and cities are built close together whether on dry patches or hills or on stilts in the marshes.
Cutting right through the center of the nation is the river Ilbin which splits off in two forks one to the ocean to the east and the other down south to the border marches.
Livernians are primarily Humans and dwarves. The Erathas Empire once stretched to the southern climes of Livernia but were pushed back by the invasion of the Aeir from the Vardendall archipelago who ruled the land for more then 3000 years until refugees from the first crusade pushed them out and established the current reign of Livernia some 6000 years ago.
The dwarves of the Frost axe clan moved down from their mountain fortresses around year 2340 Muriel. They were forced out but what they called Black Wing and after several attempts to retake their ancestral capital the dwarves steeled in with the humans and can now be found almost everywhere.
Due to its closed off nature geographically and its distance from the empires of the south the people of Livernia are superstitious and untrusting of outsiders. frequent attacks of bestial things whether real or just old tales have left them very suspicious against those who don’t look “normal”. Livernians though due to the harsh bleakness of their world are quick to accept any strangeness if it helps them, consequently a small population of Dragonkin and Tieflings have sprung up though the church still officially denotes tieflings as abomination.
