The Witchfire Trilogy
Khador is a vast and harsh northern land with rich but scattered resources. Its people are particularly tough, grim, and large of frame. Most citizens are simple folk, but all are fiercely proud of their nation. Khador has a strong military tradition; every able-bodied citizen is considered to be in the military reserves. Khador has recently undertaken massive efforts to modernize and strengthen its position in the world. Their arcane mastery has been growing in recent decades, and the crown has encouraged engineers to thrive in the capital Korsk, which is undergoing a full industrial revolution.
Though Khador has named Morrow as the state religion for decades, Queen Ayn Vanar XI has softened this stance in recognition of the nature of its citizenry. Despite a slight Morrowan majority, a numerous and vocal minority follows the Menite Old Faith. The popular queen praises both religions in equal measure. Historically they have fought many border wars against all of their neighbors including Llael, Ord, and Cygnar. Khador has a longstanding rivalry with Cygnar in particular, for they are the two most dominant nations of the region. Full war looms on the horizon between these two great nations as inevitable as the turning of the seasons.
