The Nation of Kathalphas

Made up of the Chaotic Neutral settlements of Aragon and Freevale

After many weeks of consultation and internal discussion in both settlements, the Councils of both Freevale and Aragon have decided to embark on the joint venture of forming a chaotically aligned player nation.

Current Participating Settleemnts

Aragon is a chaotic neutral settlement that is focused on training Fighters and Rogues, as well as supporting a large market for trade and crafting. Aragon is currently home to several chartered and sponsored companies.

Freevale is a chaotic neutral settlement that is focused on training Clerics and Wizards, as well as supporting a large market for trade and crafting. Deities supported: Cayden Cailean (CG), Gorum (CN) and Lamashtu (CE). Freevale is home to several companies.

Unification Brings:

As a unified nation the settlements of Aragon and Freevale agree to the following:

1. Mutual Defense
2. Mutual Support
3. Preferential Trade
4. Shared Goals for Future Expansion
5. Shared Decision Making Process
6. A United (National) Voice in Global Affairs

The Lore Behind the Name:

According to ancient legend, the devil Alichino tasked the legendary hero Strada with the conquest of an invincible city. Strada sought the help of an oracle of Gorum and was given the thousand fangs of the dragon Kathalphas. When Strada sowed the teeth into the ground outside the city as instructed, all the heroes the dragon had devoured sprang up into battle. Having frustrated the devil, Strada ruled the city for 90 years with the skeletal army as guard. Magical spartoi seeds that temporarily summon the skeletal undead warriors known as spartoloi have been created since in memory of this legend.[1]

Gorum being the principal deity of both Aragon and Freevale, we were drawn to the story. We know that as chaotic settlements and now a chaotic nation, we will have forces lined up against us. Like the hero Strada, we shall sow the land of the River Kingdoms with our “seeds” of raiders, bandits, assassins, zealous clerics, necromancers and in general with chaos.

Contacting the Nation:

Until a national ambassador is appointed, any questions can be directed to GPunk or myself Bluddwolf.

Congratulations. May your outer walls be strong, and the inner ones non-existant.

Congratulations. I cannot help but laugh at the oxymoronic nature of a "Chaotic Neutral Nation;" but I am sure the more lawfully inclined of your leaders will make it work :)

Think of Italy, they have had over 45 governments / prime ministers since 1945.

Close proximity, similar goals. The Nation of Kathalphas is a natural fit. Freevale is excited to take part. We look forward to working with our friends in Aragon to cover a full range of Chaotic game play interests.

My family's always said "it seems more governments than years".

+1

As Keepers are Neutral on the Chaos-Law axis, may much wheeling dealing and mutual trade, shenanigans and rivalry ensue.

My first EE character personally is likely to be CG.

Our armies will be called Legions of Chaos

Would that be a reference to the Chaos in Warhammer or is that purely coincidental?

Coincidental, I do not have much experience with Warhammer... Was much more of a Battletech guy.

As a nation we had participated in the War of Towers discussion last night, and we are quite pleased with both the turn out and the outcome of the discussion.

A major thanks goes out to TEO Cheatle for putting it together, to Cal. B. for recording it, and for the participants for in keeping the discussion on point and civil.

Sure thing, was glad to have been able to host. Glad almost everyone was on the same page.
