A Kingdom of south central Amara west of the Durga Wastes. It is a traditional feudal society with vassals holding fiefs and pledging fealty to the king. Despite a strong Church presence in the country, social attitudes are liberal with both Halflings and Gnomes at court.
The easternmost fiefs are known as the Eastern Marches. These are the Duchy of Callia, County Hillmarch, County Watermarch and County Durenar. These have traditionally served as a bulwark against potential enemies of the border and have thus been more militaristic than the country as a whole.
The demonym is Artan.
