TOWSTR HEREED HOTH
Towstr Hereed Hoth is situated on a piece of land to the north of the Peibaratas sea, on the Ketinor Oblegá continent. A native of Towstr Hereed Hoth is called a Towstr Hereed, by themselves referred to merely by Towstr. Multiples are Towstr Hereeds or Towstrs.EtymologyTowst

Towstr Hereed Hoth shares its western border with the Sokti Gullador (Empire of Sokt). A native of this empire is called a Brödó, multiple Brödós. The empire is many times larger than Towstr Hereed Hoth, but its power is spread out much thinner and has a somewhat smaller population.
The northern border is with Haeriyd Hoth (Haeriyd Country), a large country with great influence, though it has but rarely interfered with Towstr Hereed Hoth. A native of Haeriyd Hoth is called a Haeriyd, multiple Haeriyds.
To the north west across the Tas Pó Kivir, there is a small country called Toyvlerd, situated on the Lefpoxx peninsula. Their civilization and culture is old, but the country is of little significance. A native of Toyvlerd is a Toyvlerdi, multiple Toyvlerdis.
To the south and across the Peibaratas sea lies Hereed Hoth (Hereed Country), a country that is slightly smaller in area and population than Towstr Hereed Hoth. A native of Hereed Hoth is called Hereed (on rare occasion Ered), multiple Hereeds.
About 500km to the east, there is a small, yet powerful and populous empire called Sabólei Gullador situated around two fjords that wields control over a considerable amount of strategically placed overseas colonies that have turned into important commerce centers. Most of these colonies have remained firmly loyal to the empire and contribute in making it wealthier and wealthier. A native of Sabólei Gullador is a Sabóle, multiple Sabóles.PROVINCIAL DESCRIPTIONS
The top part (hifter
, meaning above
) of the Ragrat peninsula is often marked by windy and inclement weather. In older days; Žitr -the capital city of this province- was a Toyvlerd settlement, a people from the more northward Lefpoxx Tuyavlúx peninsula, until the expansions of the Towstr city-state forced its population to withdraw from the entire Ragrat peninsula back to their native land. On brighter days, the hilled landscape of Ragrat is an attractive display of green grass and old stone houses and mills, whilst a fresh breeze often crosses its landscape. The province is relatively sparsely populated. Ragrat’s Toyvlerd name is Ragrath.
While half the province's population resides in its two cities, the remaining population is spread out quite evenly over the rest of the peninsula. The fishermen and traders whom often cross the bay to Ragrat call the peninsula "SammatIlg" (insect hill or anthill) for its slowly inclining parabolic shape and bald spots that riddle the forest that covers it. Tuxa has a moist climate throughout the entire year and fog can often be seen rolling down from its hill, whilst the lower parts of the peninsula are covered in fog nearly every morning and sometimes afternoons. Tuxa has a tiny minority of Toyvlerdis.
Elet is the pointedly shaped peninsula that marks the western end of Towstr Hereed Hoth. Only sparsely populated due to its hard winds and heavy rains and storms, the small population lives either solitarily in small patches of forest, or in its capital city which is an important harbor for ships leaving the Peibaratas Sea that lays south. A large part of the western half of the peninsula is covered in swamps and mangroves. The province is often rightfully called "Mèga" (hook).
Tuvinan is the province that connects Elet and Tuxa to the mainland, and holds a much larger population. Its likewise named capital is known by the fact that two hill ridges can be seen ending from there. The province's northern part is a major fishing capital.
The Ragrat peninsula's bottom part (hifšin
, meaning below
) is a rich province for having the country’s only salt mine. Its capital Sinnon is -like Žitr-, an old revived Toyvlerd colony; however, the largest city remains Kantó, which thanks its attractiveness from its beautiful sight over the Lakmast gulf. The southern forests and grasslands beyond Johtó are the province's key farmlands due to its kinder weather. Hifšin Ragrat, like Tuxa, has a tiny minority of Toyvlerdis.
The city-state of Towstr is the capital and most populated province of Towstr Hereed Hoth, holding the country's largest city and one of the most important trading ports in the world. This beautiful old city has suffered a history of many wars and summer fires from which is borrows its name "Päidex" (dark city) as many of the city’s older clay buildings have turned black from these past fires. From its enormous towers, the northern-laid Emen hills are a beautiful sight, attracting many tourists. It is further known for housing some noteworthy schools specializing in Mathematics, Astronomy, Cosmology; Geography, Cartography, and other worldly sciences; Linguistics and Engineering. Cities such as Etrol and Marlóyuns are a treat for those who like old buildings, but the part of the province across the hills is equally if not more beautiful as the small streams that flow down the hills create a lush and wet, densely forested region. In the past, the area past these hills formed its own province, called Emenlévá; but after some time the inhabitants of both provinces no longer saw the need for this to be so as there was no real difference between the two population. After all, Emenlévá is native Towstr Hereed land, and as such they merged. The warm cities against the Lakmast gulf are famous for being filled with fruit trees and bushes, with nearly every house being covered in vines that bear fruits. The surrounding lowlands are very populated and these farms and settlements are symbols of order and neatness, and visible beacons of the region's riches and old culture. Towstr Hereeds are extremely proud people with an ever-lasting hunger for exploration and adventure.
Lauters is a grassy province that is sparsely populated, with most of these inhabitants being traditional hunters. Aò, its capital city, lies against a small hill and has a far sight of the surrounding region. Lauters is home to some of the world's finest bowyers.
Máxilla used to be an autonomous region inside Towstr Hereed Hoth for many thousands of years until recently it lost this status as its culture had become so assimilated with Towstr culture that it was in fact, merely a province. The Máxillans still carry a light accent, a remnant of the old Üveek language.
Sovkiles is the country's smallest, yet most densely populated province and is home to the native SovkilesMarriss; hunter-gatherers with distinctly different facial features than other Marriss, the origins of this unknown. Hoegen is a decently sized city, surrounded by its noteworthy brown walls. The province is very fertile and slightly warm, without frost in the winter.
Rávstr is the oldest province of Towstr Hereed Hoth that used to be backward until is wound up in a dispute with its big brother state after most young men who were forced to enlist in the Towstr army refused when the state started a muscle-showing war with Hereed Hoth, which the Towstrs lost. The province separated from the main country and secured its borders with Towstr. After the Hereeds invaded Towstr following the war, the country was granted full sovereignty. After some thousand years, Towstr and Rávstr had reunited, but Rávstr still has a strong self-governing voice. Rávstr is home to a sub-ethnicity of Marriss that call themselves Rávstr Hereeds, closely related to the Towstr Hereeds. They are considered haughty and self-righteous, sometimes unscrupulous.
Hekxilen is an old and wealthy Towstr colonial region that lies directly east of the capital province at the Peibaratas Sea. It is one of the oldest of Towstr colonies and wielded a considerable amount of influence when the state was still small, this because it was part of the main state and not a separate province; however, the settlers never considered themself to be the same as Towstrs. After the invasion of the Hereeds, the central government made it a separate province for administrative reasons. Its proud population lives mostly along the coast, this also being the location of the old capital city. The province enjoys a "sweet" climate, being an in-between of a Mediterranean and oceanic climate.
This relatively new province used to be a loose sovereign state of long range Towstr settlers, most of who settled in the location that now is the capital city Kalmió. The local language resembles an older form of Towtr Hereed-ic that has gone its own way in changing with time. The western regions of the province are covered in grass and rocky hills, whilst as the eastern part has a thin forest that gives home to many expats and Marriss who dislike the presence of others. The nation was annexed into the state some time ago, but Towstr presence and influence remains extremely low, and the province still retains many features of a nation state, for example a separate police force; but its financial affairs are handled by the Towstr central government.
Töverèst used to be part of Maukó Silim with the exception that it is more densely populated and entered Towstr Hereed Hoth at an earlier date. The capital city is practically invisible as it is built underneath a forest, which covers nearly the entire province.
This province has remained rather neutral throughout history, behaving much in accord with the Towstr city-state and like a true colony. Žernay is the capital city of this province, being a trade city as it is a crossroads for trade between Kahri Hoth and Towstr, as well as much of commerce coming and going to and from the east of the country. Ajkánmi holds a relatively large minority of Hereeds in the south, where it borders Hivereed. A small settlement in the northern part of the province is famous for producing detailed and decorated pottery, but this doesn't much change the fact that the rest of the province is moderately backward.
Hivereed is the result of when two separate ethnicities race to colonize the same piece of land. The population of Hivereed consists for a large part of Hereed colonists, but the northern and western regions are predominantly Towstr Hereeds. The autonomy of this region is self-proclaimed by a government consisting purely of Hereeds; however, the autonomy is recognized by the central government. Hivereed has some of the most beautiful lands in the country and is home to a rich, preserved culture on both Hereed and Towstr sides. The southern region around its capital Ére resembles Hekxilen in its climate.
Being the most prominent exporter of dried herbs and spices that do not grow in other regions of the world, Hágha has earned quite a name as a colony. Large parts of this province are dry grasslands with some trees here and there, yet not as dry as a legitimate steppe. Most farmers in this region concentrate on growing crops with low water demand; and during droughts this province has faced water scarcity. The province has a mediate population.
A merger of the former far northern province Nivé and the southern large province of Aragnes. With the exception of the region bordering Méstil province and a mild land climate to the north-east, this province is marked by having a dry Mediterranean climate; and the population lives in small, remote clusters. Aragnes is an important trade city and used to be home to the Yahlàk, an assassin group that operated throughout Towstr Hereed Hoth, killing everyone from a simple farmer to a politician if paid accordingly. The city used to house many criminals, but these times have passed. A small Kahr minority is present in this province.
Šóhavó is an important province, being one of the most populous ones in the country. The capital city is an old Hereed colony that was taken over by Towstr expansions, leading to difficulties between Towstr Hereed Hoth and Hereed Hoth. The four south-eastern cities form an eminent trading hub and the newly reclaimed lands around the Vukälla have created some of the most fertile lands in the entire country, and many dried fruits are exported from here. The completely flat province lies in the middle of a basin and receives extraordinary amounts of precipitation. The large appendix that contains the small city Torel is a result of a rebellion against Towstr Hereed Hoth in old times, after which it formed a short-lived state that collapsed after being invaded from the Vukodel by Hereeds through the part which is now reclaimed, but the area has always been disputed and has been conquered and reconquered countless times.
Pikklét is another old Towstr colony and its capital held a large military and civilian port through which many colonists ventured eastward after they had crossed the Vukodel. The east of the province is riddled in evenly distributed small hills that give it an amusing look, and after rain the basins between these hills fill up to form small lakes before seeping into the ground or running away. These lakes are home to the illustrious homes on high poles and floating gardens.
Áklos rests at the base of the Ávsaltän hills and forms excellent slopes for growing many types of light-demanding plants. It is wealthy and has a rather large capital city often called "the way south", but apart from that, it has never been a very significant region, and many Towstr will have to think deeply when the name "Áklos" is mentioned.
Vukovar is a key province, and very old. It is one of the first colonies to arise created by Haeriyd settlers venturing northward to what is now Haeriyd Hoth. Vukovar experiences a slight land climate, being moister along its two rivers but rather dry in its western parts. The capital city has a stunning view of the mountain range that begins and runs north-eastward. The Vukälla River often is often symbolized as holding back these mountains from "crushing the land" as it runs directly at the foot of the Verelet hills. The southern city Skarpa, which lies against the river Iggar, runs down from the hill and has a stunning center where much of the farmers living higher in the mountains sell their goods and produce, but gold mines can also be found near Skarpa. Vukovar city is home to the old imperial palace.
Mekka has a rigid, tough-minded population which has declared independence from Towstr Hereed Hoth on multiple occasions. The creeks running through its capital city have deposited vibrantly green marbles along its banks, making it an interesting sight for travelers. Not much is to be said about this region.
Originally being a Kahri province, it became overwhelmed by the amount of Towstr settlers that forced the Kahr ever inward to the river until only a small strip of territory around Vilis was under Kahr rule, but this has also been annexed by Towstr Hereed Hoth. Méstil is known from its Méstil berries, a species which seems to have withdrawn to a small piece of land underneath Vilis. Méstil is a beautiful province that much enjoys the great amounts of water flowing into its thousands of miles of irrigation canals as the Kahr were renowned waterworks engineers.
Ereed Menti is a very old Hereed settlement in which the Hereed settlers coexisted peacefully with its internal Brödó minority, and Kahr and Towstr neighbors without meddling a single bit in their affairs. Ereed Menti is home to some of the brightest minds in Towstr Hereed Hoth. The Kahr and Ereed Menti governments concluded a contract through which Kahri Gullador would pay gold for importing foodstuffs and weaponry for a planned war against the Towstrs. After their success, the seemingly awkward corner of land at the north along the river was given to Ereed Menti as a gift from the Kahr emperor. The province was originally a part of Hereed Hoth but separated after the war, after which it was an independent country for 156 years until the Towstrs annexed it into their state. Nowadays, more and more Towstr Hereeds settle here for the incredible fertility of the province’s southern half.
This province's capital started out as little more than a simple tavern that grew out to a small city for the many eastward travelers that decided to settle there. The province's origin is rather administrative than historic. Like any province along the reclaimed lands of the Vukodel, the province bears increased fertility. Yoqla has a small Kahr and Brödó minority.
Šóhumgrát is an old settlers’ province of those travelers that decided to move to the south-east. The inner part of the province’s agriculture relies heavily on the rains as the climate becomes a bit drier towards the east. Šóhumdán is a city that focuses on fishing and trade. The eastern tip of the province has a small minority of Brödós.
Jsamki thanks its existence to the trade route from Kahri Hoth to the south that passes through its capital. The province has always encouraged its population to make a living in trade, though, most remain farmers. Jsamki has an ideal climate for growing plants that are fond of water, yet need some warmth.
Vukki Aulaken (Vuk's bend) is an administrative province that formerly consisted of the separate province of Vándon located on the likewise named peninsula; a small southern part around Perskitaspa belonging to Gjftat province; and the most northern part until below Déri, which used to be of Šóhumgrát. The area is the one-but largest food exporter on the continent because of its great fertility and ease of access from the sea, and Doaleng is an example of one of the distribution nexuses that then transports its good to the river where they are shipped off abroad. A large part of the province's southern part above Perskitaspa deals with floods as the low grounds easily saturate with water. Its capital city, Vándon, is known as quite a sight for consisting of merely one road that travels along the old coast for many miles.
Known as "the mountain of the south", this province consists of mostly tall hills and rapid streams that are bursting with beefy fish. Órráv is one of the places where these fish are smoked or salted and shipped to across the Peibaratas Sea. Making for cloud barrier, the eastern part of the hills are often rainy, yet the overall climate is mildly oceanic. On brighter days, one standing on the hills above Órráv can see Gjftat Avú across the Vukodel.
The end of the Mountain of the South is an old Hereed colony that derives its name from the fact that the lighthouse standing on the peninsula's very tip is tall enough to allows the viewer to see Hereed Hoth's Hixan province across the Peibaratas sea (Hixan Setten
means “We see Hixan
”). The small, peaceful capital city receives little notice, regardless of it being beautiful in summer when flowers can be seen numerously all across the city. The hills likewise are known for being full of generously colored flowers, and many of the world's best known florists are natives of these hills. The province's northern half is relatively dry in comparison with the lush green south, and the northern border with Ávsaltän is particularly barren.
Vukodel is like Vukki Aulaken, a province brought into existence for administrative reasons. The northern part surrounding Irasim is a city formerly belonging to Áklos province; Trona -an old Hereed colony- formed its own province, however small; and Váliá was also a Hereed colony, and still has a mostly Hereed population.
The country's largest gold mines spread for hundreds of miles throughout the high hills that cover the entire province, and for this reason the province has been the stage of war and dispute between the Sokti Gullador, Kahri Gullador and Towstr Hereed Hoth for ages. Crowds of miners from many Ærad ethnicities work in the hills to seek fortune and have their homes in the busy city of Beyndagórtsljv. The province’s capital is a Kahr colony and still have a large Kahr minority to this day. The higher parts of the hills are inhospitable as their rocky surfaces allow for only the toughest of drought-tolerant trees.
Guntirák is old Kahr territory which suffered a similar fate as Méstil; however Guntirák has only a very small population, for unknown reasons. Its lands are very fertile, but pristine. Supposed is that Kahr farmers lived on the other side of the Vukälla and that they crossed it every day to forage the woods, or occasionally their fields or shacks. This would explain the many narrow bridges crossing the river and stone walls in Guntirák, but even with these signs, it would be strange as the Kahr didn’t farm using these methods; furthermore, the irrigation ducts they were so keen on using everywhere else are not present. Due to its very small capital city, Guntirák has no official capital.
Kahri Hoth (Country of Kahr) is one of the two provinces of the former Kahri Gullador (Empire of Kahr) that existed even before the creation of Towstr Hereed Hoth. The native inhabitants call themselves Kahrs and are closely related to the Noxiners, a central Ærad ethnicity, although they have a slightly darker skin color. Having lived near the river for thousands of years now, the Kahr have learnt to control the waters of the Vukälla and use it in their advantage by having a vast length of canals and irrigation ducts that spread like veins throughout their farmlands which are located mainly in the country's south. The most noticeable example of the Kahrs' waterworks and engineering capabilities is the reclaiming of a large part of the Vukodel, which they first turned into a lake for a century before the water was fresh enough to ensure that the underlying soil wouldn't hold a large amount of salt. The northern part of the country consists of tall hill ridges and plateaus. Leyokidex has a spectacular sight over the bight of the Vukälla and its many bridges, and across a long distance into Guntirák, as well a clear view of the nearby city Súpalen. A pleasant Mediterranean climate is present in this region. The south of the country is a dense forest that provides large amounts of food, enough to make it an exporting country. Its capital city Amór is a visibly ancient city with a center consisting of worn building of different times, tall spires, palaces, statues of old heroes, and even one of the rail cannons that were part of the original colonization starships that brought the Marris to this planet. It is an important trade center for gold, greens, grains, fish, and for which it is best known, steel. Weapons created with Amór steel are well known for being slightly blue and tremendously qualitative. It has made several attempts to keep control over its own land which have often resulted in wars, but the enormous Towstr expansions led them to be of no avail. The country is currently considered fully sovereign; however, post-war terms with the Towstr Hereeds have resulted in its official annexation and deposition of the royal family. Kahri Hoth is one of the wealthiest and most populated regions in Towstr Hereed Hoth, and the Kahr are generally regarded as well-educated and self-possessed, intelligent individuals. The south-western border of Kahri Hoth has a tiny minority of Towstrs.
The Kahr are native to the modern provinces Kahri Hoth, Méstil, Ereed Menti and Guntirák; but have later also settled a large region to the west. The Kahr Empire had no provinces and thus, the province that is now called Kahri Gullador emerged only after the Kahr's defeat at the hands of the Towstrs. The province is created upon the term that "it hold the Kahr Empire’s non-native lands across the Vukälla", and has its own autonomous government as well, although it is directed by and serving the interests of Kahri Hoth. It is the second largest province after Towstr, and has varying climates with a moist Mediterranean climate in the south, becoming drier the farther north one travels until being locked into position by the foot of the Verelet hill ridge. The Kahr have laid a clear and superb infrastructure net to connect the province's populous settlements. The north-eastern border has some small strips of land that are inhabited mainly by Brödós.
The relatively young province counts as the country's granary as its northern part has a very steppe-like environment, except for the region around Gápus, which is filled with elongated and redirected creeks that make the landscape a very subtly forested and green one. It has historically served as the site for many battles between Towstr Hereed Hoth and Sokti Gullador, as this was the region where the first clashes between the two states began. The province is largely covered by dense forests, and has a below average population.
Kámsams is a region that has always been somewhat inhabited, currently by Towstr Hereeds, but in the past it has been part of Hereed Hoth, before that it was full of Brödó travelers that decided to settle there. Its capital city is a large, vibrant city built upon the wine storage tunnels that dig into the earth below for many miles; this is also what the province thanks its success to, its superb wine and Halong (most popular wine fruit) groves. The capital city is remarkably close to the nearby large city Marmó, which lies on a small stream that runs parallel with the one in Alisex. Kámsams can be unbearably hot in the summer, but has very regular rainfalls.
The most central and old Gjftat province. In the past, Gjftat was a province shaped identically with the growth regions of Gódbyt, a plant grown for its leaves, a tea of which has a stimulating effect, sharpening vision and adding to one's endurance. After a long drought in the region, Gódbyt demands were higher than ever beforehand, and within two years, Gjftat became the richest region in a large radius. Towstr Hereed Hoth annexed the region as a response to this wealth increase and started placing a tax on Gódbyt production, after which its popularity became somewhat smaller. Gjftat was divided into three provinces according to the type of Gódbyt that occurred naturally in those regions, and named after them. Yekkilet's climate is quite the same as that of Avú, though winters are not as cold. All Gjftat provinces are at most only moderately inhabited.
The western part of the former Gjftat province that spanned the region including Gjftat Avú, Gjftat Yekkilet, and Gjftat Misst. Avú is quite uninhabited, except for the strip of land along the southern end of the reclaimed Vukodel, which also contains the city Swédoqarat, a small city that is known for its enormous old docks that are no longer in use, running into the lowlands for a very long distance. The southern city Čakkarot is oddly called after the even more southern laying city Čakkar, presumably originating from the settlers from Čakkar that founded the city. The province often experiences warm winds, even in autumn, but in the winter any form of weather seems to come to a grinding halt. Čakkar has a small Hereed minority.
The most southern province of the country. Čakídá is surrounded by water on most sides, and signs the end of the Gjftat peninsula. Its capital city Čakkar is an important transit port for goods and people going and coming from deeper inside the Peibaratas sea. The province had once been founded as a Hereed province that separated under a pretending king, but was soon invaded by the Towstrs who disposed the king. This met with widespread approval; however, Towstrs soon began to stream into the region like water through a broken dam. Nowadays, the deeper parts of the province have some small Hereed settlements, but the rest of the province consists of purely Towstrs. Čakídá has a typical oceanic climate and highly changeful weather.
The northern part of the former Verelet province. Ninety percent of this province's population is Brödó.
Formerly a large Brödó coastal province called Vherelet that consisted of the modern Hifter Verelet, Verelet, and Imša Verelet provinces that were split up for administrative reasons. They’re made up of a mostly hilled landscape with some small settlements. The coasts of all Verelet provinces are immensely densely forested and are a hotspot for wildlife as the upper hills are rather dry. The Verelet provinces have been of very little significance for Towstr Hereed Hoth throughout history.
The province used to be part of Kahri Gullador, but it quickly fell in the hands of Sokti Gullador with the exception of the far south around Delimest which is still mostly inhabited by Kahrs. Sokti Gullador attempted to invade the city multiple times, but each attempt was of no avail. While barraging the attackers with arrows, the defenders' wives threw buckets of boiling water and occasionally oil off the city walls, and the city was never captured. Hifšin Verelet has a dry climate that resembles some inner parts of Turkey. The province is very thinly inhabited. Has Towstr Hereed Hoth’s highest point; VereletIlg (Verelet Hill), which is 892 meters in height.
The province is completely uninhabited except for the coastal areas, the cities, and the regions between them. Golenèt is an old logging colony, and many of the old dry-docks that built ships for Sokti Gullador were burnt down after the Towstr invasion, only the foundations and poles of these buildings remain, charred and broken. The city is built from the same trees that were used to build these ships, very dark red in color.
Another former Brödó colony (Rimyfz); primarily known for being the origin of Lyhpió; a type of liquor made from Mollnát, a type of soft nut. It has a deep, indeed woody flavour and besides a beverage, is it mostly used to give sweet desserts a nutty taste. In the countryside, more or less every farmer distills the drink; whilst the only factory that distills Lyhpió is situated Pódron. Lyhpió is the mainspring of the province’s economy and wealth. Two types of the liquor exist, one growing on the dry hills, and one in the wet lands along the coast and practically anywhere beneath the hills. Rimifs has a medium Towstr minority.
Sevina was an old Brödó settlers' province (Sevfina) and is currently completely taken over by Towstr Hereed settlers. It is one of the country's most influential provinces and is a very large agricultural center, with large parts of forests in which all native were slowly replaced with only fruit and nut trees. These can be found along the coast between Sevina and Tayrif, but this culture has stuck in some places at the province's eastern coasts as well. Its capital city Sevina is the country's third largest city, and one of the very oldest cities on the planet and it is known for the manufacture of fine carpets and textiles, handicrafts, tools; and it is home to some of the continent's prime cultural schools, including some prominent schools of sculpting, history, music, calligraphy and literature, architecture, and political schools. The entire province basks in fertility and warmth, with no frost, and much rainfall.
Ginguna -a former Brödó colony (Kinakuna)- is called the sister of Sevina by the Towstrs, however, there is no real connection between the two. Like Sevina, it has a moist Mediterranean climate, and is known for its tall buildings and flower gardens that surround them, and for being origin place of a type of robe called Parmon (a type of robe resembling an Arab bisht, though with legs visible). The capital city is rather large and has the largest and most busy trade port around Hóvi Gzdwina. The southern city Hengar, which lies beneath the end of the MólunsIlgas (Móluns hills); has a rather small, but present Šabóle minority consisting of mostly merchants and bankers.
Mosfet’s culture is a mishmash of that of the Šabóles, Brödós, Hereeds, and recently Towstr Hereeds; this counts for its population as well. The language they speak resembles Fraisgeur, the language of an ethnicity of Marris on the most southern continent, though the two have very little in common qua history. The province's center has almost no population, but the south is a considerably important trading hub. The far north is home to the largest Hiberin (a fruit with sedative effects) plantations in the country.
Has the largest output of Gódbyt of all three Gjftat provinces. The capital city Misst is a very modern city with a large market status as it is the first adequate city on the road from Sommos to Towstr; and into all directions travel the Gódbyt traders, but mostly to the mines in the far north, where it is in high demand. The center, northern and eastern parts of the province have a slightly milder climate than even Yekkilet.
Sommos has a very large minority of Šabóles as it is one of their empire's old colonies. The province was annexed as a provocative measure against Šabólei Gullador during a time of tension between the two states. After the annexation, Sommos was ferociously overtaxed and militarily oppressed, causing for many of its Šabóle inhabitants to stream back to their home land, their places being taken by Towstrs that bought up the deserted houses, farms and shops after many Šabóles had disappeared and taxes had lowered. Its capital city is a large transit port and host to some of the most important schools of medicine, alchemy and chemistry, physics, and social sciences such as sociology and psychology. The city is very old and its tall, closely packed, dark colored brick buildings give it an eerie, shady environment, especially on rainy days. The city is a complete contrast to practically all other cities and settlements in the province, with their white buildings and other white things such as flowers, plants, streets and clothing; something the Šabóles started doing for no apparent reason. Nármonc, the most northern city, is the most important location for the transportation of goods from around Hóvi Gzdwina to the sea at the city of Ayálem. Southern Sommos has a very temperate, warm oceanic climate.
An old Brödó coastal province that came to existence as a base for military operations along the eastern border of Sommos. The province is uninhabited with the exception for the areas around Yütülemki city, and a sporadic few solitary villages or loners along the rest of the coast. The trade route that runs along the coast has many Laqimeroskis - caravan inns that provide a safe place for sleeping after a day’s travel.
One of the southern provinces around the Hóvi Gzdwina, having a large Brödó population in comparison to Towstrs. Like Yütülemki, it has some confined villages and a small capital city, with romantic-looking wooden houses and a view of the lake, and hills that lay further inward. Pakkarim is not much more than that and some Laqimeroskis, nowadays. It was formerly known as Pakàryim.
The province, formerly a Brödó one (Awlnikka) was formerly used intensively for mining, and had a much larger population, but these miners have all disappeared. Alinikka consists of three regions: the first, an outcrop of the Móluns hills that is nearly uninhabited but some fishing villages and hunter-gatherers; the second, the Awlnikka peninsula that lies against the Tagnet gulf. This region is very rocky, looking much like some places along the coast of Scotland. It is harsh for both animal and plant, and is completely uninhabited. The third region is the one between the two regions already named. It is a small, fertile region that embraces the capital city of Almeğ, where the thick houses that are built of very large stone bricks are still standing after many thousands of years, slowly eroding away through the strong winds and cold hails and rains that strike this region. Everything is gray too; from the people’s clothing, to the houses, to the landscape, to the hills, to the birds and the sea.
This province was once part of the one that lays across the land bridge that separates Brögzdwina lake from the Tagnet gulf, inside Sokti Gullador. It is named after the city Hóven which lies in that province. The part of the province that is part of Towstr Hereed Hoth is strangely almost devoid of Brödós as most of the inhabitants fled the area when the Towstrs started invading the province from above and below the Hóvi Gzdwina; and the only regions where they still live are along the border. The current capital is Táyráğr, and it has a strong military presence, with randomly changing checkpoints beside most roads. Regardless of this, the mood is not tensed and the Towstr settlers have rebuilt much of what was destroyed in the war. The province wraps around the end of Hóvi Gzdwina of which is has an impressive view, and many call it "Geccens" ("swords") for some reason, presumably because of the fact that all swords became illegal in the region directly after the war, to stop the natives from launching an insurgency. This did not help, though instead of creating widespread anger, the province's theft rate increased tremendously. After most Brödós had moved across the border, their swords were sent with them. The small DengilitIlgas hill ridge north of the lake is an attractive place to climb, and one can see across the lake which is but 20 km wide at that point. The province is moderately cold and may experience some nasty weather, but the weather in summer is usually spring-like and crisp.
Former province of Sokti Gullador under the name of Pailsate. The region has always had a significant population, however, less of them live in rural areas in comparison to other provinces. Its capital lies at the end of the DengilitIlgas' foot. It is a beautiful, old city, yet not very large. The northern part of the province is quite heavily populated for a farming region, and many small villages are present here.
A merger of the old Brödó provinces Hakàlyoh and Símei Stett. The north (Hakàlyoh) is a sparsely populated place whilst the southern, Mediterranean Símei Stett province is densely packed with the houses of many Towstr settlers. Alvos rests next to a large rusty rocky outcrop that became the largest iron mine in the country.
