Chronicles of Skythia
The Azberjan Principalities (often referred to as the Principalities) are a loose confederation of city states along the northern shore of the continent. Co-operation among the various prinipalities is rare and tenuous at best, often breaking down into endless bickering and infighting over some slight (real or imagined). They once formed a contigenous empire, but split apart during a war of succession and have never since recovered and indeed do not seem to be interested or inclined towards reconciliation.
The various principalities are continuously plotting to gain an edge on thier neighbours and their internal rivals, despite the constant threat of the Chaos Bore and lack of resources.
There are 6 primary principalities, each ruling over 500,000 to 3,000,000 people depending on size and resources.
