Glorious Empire of Lijden
Common Races: duergar, human, lizardfolk
Common Classes: cleric, dark templar, fighter, inquisitor, monk, ranger, rogue, scout, wizard
Lijden is a swampy and overcast human nation, ruled over by albino nobility and led by Empress Zelafina. Life for the common masses in Lijden is a harsh combination of slavery, indentured servitude, press-gangs, spooky animal attacks in the dead of night, mysterious disappearances, etc. The albino nobility of Lijden—known as Isk or Iskens—claims to trace its bloodline back to a snake deity named Iskzl [picture] worshiped by the ancient Hethish tribes that once ruled the area around Lijden.
The larger towns and major cities of Lijden are dominated by humans, with a strong showing of lizardfolk from the surrounding swamps and duergar slave-merchants and their Grey Guard from the mountains to the south. Smaller towns and villages are almost entirely human, with the odd lizardfolk hunter or duergar trader thrown in.
