As Winter Comes
Ruler: King Steppengard
Aided by the Council of Eight Lands, Steppengard rules the Kingdom of Dassen, always looking nervously north towards his Ragesian neighbors. In the far south of Dassen is the city of Seaquen, which houses the famous Lyceum Academy of Magic. King Steppengard rules a patchwork of eight feudal holdings, many of them controlled by distant relatives with claims to the throne of numbing complexity. To assure that he never has to worry about untangling these claims, Steppengard has had a huge family with eighteen children, all legitimate on the word of his oath.
