Monarchy of Millarene
The Monarchy of Millarene is a Festive seafaring realm which begins just off the coast of the Shattered Mirror Sea, and reaches a few islands into that archipelago, and is quite young in comparison to most other nations of its scale, having known only its current ruler. Its formation came about as a religious and diplomatic effort by Lady Lauene who highlighted the similarities between several smaller island nations and negotiated the vassalage of the local kings through games of athletics and wit. It is well known as the only nation for whom the Children of the Locus is a State Religeon, and for its less conservative views on sex. Its Ruler, the Half-Elven Queen Laurene Twinrose, is the subject of an abundant number of Bawdy Limericks and songs. Foreigners mock the queen with poetry-in-poor-taste, and scoff at Millarene as being a debauched, oversexed, chaotic wreck of a kingdom which struggles to keep itself in power.
The Reality is that the Kingdom is actually quite stable and prosperous, making great fortunes in trading exotic wares from their tropical island holdings. Unfortunately, the people of the Millarese Islands are often the target of Slaving raiders, valued as “Caramel skinned Exotics”. Both from the Vampire Remnants, and independent pirates. As a result of this, Millarese Rangers and Inquisitors tend to be some of the best Vampire Hunters in the game. In their beautiful engraved and bejeweled armor, the Millarese Peacock Knights dance through battlefields with a legendary grace, often with twin swords slicing in baffling asynchronized patterns.
Queen Laurene has a goal to achieve with her nation, and nearly all her people are behind her. She aims to restore the image of many things that are associated with vampires, to remove the negative Stigma attached to things such as homosexuality, magical arts, and other “Deviations” that the undead empire tainted with their dark nature.
