Trouble in Olari
A hereditary kingdom located in the south-western region of Eyliarenn, Alece is bordered by Tailia and the river Corle to the west, the Kean Mountains to the north and east, and Cinai to the south. It shares a short border between the Corle and the western-most reaches of the Kean with Umarau, with which it shares an animosity going back to the last years of the Long Winter. This border is well fortified and patrolled, and skirmishes are not uncommon. Most traders avoid travelling by land through this area, known as Eamar’s Pass, after a Alecean hero who led the defence against the first attempted Umarau invasion.
The smallest kingdom on the continent of Eyliarenn, Alece is nonetheless a significant political entity in the region. A significant producer of iron, copper and other base metals, Alece exports these to Cinai and Tailia. It also produces arms and trains soldiers for these nations.
