The Thirteenth Throne
KHADOR, KINGDOM IN THE NORTH
The rustic realm of Khador is a sharp contrast to the modre modern kingdoms of Cygnar, Llael, and Ord. Much of it is harsh land with few resources, sparsely populated by a tough and grim people. Its citizens are often simple folk, but they are intelligent, honorable, and fiercely independent. Their ruler, Supreme Empress Ayn Vanar XXII and her husband Vladimir both come from a long line of rebel warriors, and she can trace her lineage back to the first landed nobles who fought against the Orgoth invasion centuries ago. Not surprisingly, the Khards have a strong military tradition. Everyone trains in arms and tactics, and every able-bodied citizen is considered to be a part of the military reserves. Their regiments are well supplied with fearsome battle-clerics, though most wizards and spellcasters travel south to grander centers of learning. Khador is at its prime, recovering from wars and conflict. Time will tell if its people will be launched into war once again.
