Western Republic

The Republic of the West comprises six autonomous city-states, each with their own personalities and resource specialties: Maranina (mare·uh·nee·nuh), Loronico (lor·oh·nik·oh), Viselia (vih·say·lee·uh), Guglielmo (gwuh·lee·leh·moh), Saboni (suh·bohn·ee), and Tierabino (teer·uh·been·oh). Each Western city-state has its own government and culture, but the people of the West unite over shared values of diplomacy, free trade, and independence. In many places, Westerners have a reputation for criminal activity and backstabbing, but they would argue that they simply put the needs of themselves and their people before anything else.

Humans

The Humans are unique in that they have no true racial origin story. Their legends speak of a time when human kingdoms stretched across Mundus, but constant wars and violence brought their race to the edge of extinction. The humans who remained moved to the western reaches, where they established trading city-states under the Empire of the Deathless Sun. 

 

Even then, a history of war and conflict plagued the humans, as they spent the better part of the first known century fighting one another over scraps of land. Humans were known to be creative, stubborn, and highly adaptable. However, they were also known for their contrary natures and for their seeming inability to get along with one another, even when the alternative was their extinction. Because their early history was violent, but their technology development was less swift than other nations, early human fighters were scrappy and adaptable. Above all else, they learned how to make the most out of their own bodies in combat. Because of this, they would later be known for having the toughest mercenaries in the Crescent. 

 

When the city-state wars broke out, the Humans risked fighting each other to the brink of extinction yet again. Ultimately, they decided that for their race to survive, they must stop warring with each other and learn how to get along. This philosophy formed the foundation of the Western Republic, and it is the reason Westerners are so well-known for diplomacy today. 

 

When the Dwarves rebelled in 470, the Humans once again turned to their origin story, singing songs of a time when humans were independent and dominated the Eulian Crescent. When the Great Rebellion came around, they set out to regain their ancestor’s independence. This time, however, they sought freedom not through violence, but through diplomatic strategy. When they succeeded, they left behind the turmoil and violence of their origin entirely.
