Legends of Karlion
The Old Empire
A shadow of its former glory, the Old Empire clings to is previous power. The capital has recently fallen to the Bronze Horde from the West, but the Eternal City endures. Now ruled by Tazukar, the Horde Warlord, power in the Old Empire is still entrenched in the hands of the ancient families who have formed the backbone of Imperial power for centuries. Horde and Imperials are starting to mix, but the Wheaten Crown sits restlessly on the brow of Tazukar. The Empire is divided into six provinces, called Imperial Cantons, ruled over by a Dictator General. The Dictator Generals are, for the most part, Imperials. The recent rebellion in the IVth Canton has caused Tazukar to depose Aretus Markus, the previous Dictator General, and to replace him with Leonaz Kaerlin, one of his warlords. This has created some tension between Old Imperials and Horde in that Canton in particular.
