The Age of Lost Omens
Mendev and the Crusade
Mendev is located at the very north of the continent of Avistan and its northern border consists of the towering ice cliffs of the Crown of the World. To Mendev’s west, marked by the Wardstones that help keep the abyssal taint at bay, is the Worldwound, Mendev’s very reason for existing. To its west is the Lake of Mists and Veils, the vast body of water which thousands of pilgrims have crossed to complete their pilgrimage. To the south lies Numeria, separated by rivers along much of the border. The people of Mendev seem to have little to do with this harsh nation of savagery and strange science.
The kingdom is divided into four territories. The Northern Icecrown, the Western Wardstones, the Forest Interior and The Eastern Lake. Each of them are ruled by a Lord General of the Crusade. The main purpose of the territories is to maintain order within Mendev’s borders while mustering troops and supplies for Nerosyan and the wardstone barrier.
