The Dying Days
Valamar - The Golden Kingdom
The Golden Kingdom of Valamar is a verdant country that dominates the western hemisphere of Arconia. While it possesses a sordid history of violence and oppression, the modern civilization is a pristine example of a peaceful realm.
The Kingdom itself is ruled by Gold King Rubio, but the general nation was sectioned into principalities. Each prince was given his own castle and land to rule over, though each still answered to the King himself.
The races of Valamar are incredibly varied for a kingdom of its size. Because the ancient rulers were slave holders who cherished unusual specimens, Valamar is a melting pot for the races of the world. Some races, such as the Gaazi and Dragonborn were actually created as experiments by the Illithid. Despite this fairly volatile mixture, racial disputes have been relatively minimal. The shared suffering of the past has proved to be an effective pacifier.
