Population: 30,000+

Geographic Area[edit]

Lorencete Homeland is in the forest.

Imports, Exports, and Resources[edit]

Lorencete Homeland has abundant freshwater and wood. Lorencete Homeland has a trade and defense alliance with Sidereal. Lorencete trades wood, wooden objects, and Elven crafts to Sidereal for stone and international trades.

The economy is in ruins with the long war. Before the war, the average monthly wage was 3 gold pieces (the basic pay of the army). Now, the average monthly wage is 1 gold piece (the basic pay of the army). Before the war, magic items were more available as a market item in the major cities (most items of level 1 through 5). Now, the availability of magic items is rare. There are no magic item stores or merchants (only 1st level items are available, when a magic item can be found to buy).

History[edit]

The Elven Kingdom of Lorencete Homeland is the oldest kingdom that traces its foundation to the fallen Elven Empire of Theaven. Over a millennium ago, the present day city of Lorencete Homeland was established by Elven Warlock Greenmeadows, the last surviving heir of the Theaven Empire.

In the Time of Chaos, in the first epoch, the Elven Empire of Theaven rests between two great continental rivers and its capital city of Bihar is in the center of the empire with roads cross-connecting the cities of Datia, Encer, and Thurie; with the city of Mizapur on the Blue Bay at the river mouth. Theaven fights on four fronts with Umerikah, Chi-han-sis, Hydraseau, and Dwagoold. In 828 DY, the Great Elven-Dwarven War I begins between the Empire of Theaven and Kingdom of Dwagoold. In 1114 DY, the Campaign of Blood leaves Theaven and Dwagoold weak; cease fire is declared. In 1575 DY, Kingdom of Hourshan's first conflict with Elves of Theaven in the western woods (precursor of the Human Kingdom of Umerikah); and in 1595 DY, Theaven army defeats the Army of Umerikah in the Battle of Molden Hill; and in 2093 DY, in the Battle of Noon, Umerikah defeats Theaven.

In the second epoch, the Elven Empire of Theaven in left to a few Elven settlements living in isolation. In the modern era, the third epoch, in 376 C.E., Sidereal sends 2 legions toward Aet-tons (9,600 soldiers), Bronze City sends 1 legion toward Aet-tons (4,800), Whitebeach sends 2 legions toward Aet-tons (9,600), as the Elf forces of Lorencete fight the invading army in a holding strategy of hit-n-run. (invading strength 25,000 against defending strength 24,000 plus Elves).

Government[edit]

The government is by an elected assembly of twelve elders, each with equal vote. The twelve elders have absolute authority, answerable only to themselves. The twelve elders are individually known as “The Homeland Supreme Elder.”

Varis Loren, Theren Highleaf, Rolen Quick, Lucan Shava, Enna Shava, Beiro Datia, Varis Bihar, Gennal Thurie, Lia Wideyes, Peren Hope, Thia Hope, and Thia Mizapur are the Homeland Supreme Elders. The elders meet in the governmental building and castle known as The Green Meadow.

There is a 7 silver pieces tax on all merchandise bought or sold, also there is a 5 silver pieces gateway tax on all travel into all city's gates. No mounts of any kind are permitted within Lorencete proper.

The law of the land is the Five Natural Laws of Pilgrim’s Creek. In 1258 DY, the scribe Gnome Eldon Feywild codified five laws into a civilized system. The Five Natural Laws are against violence, stealing, harming, interfering, and disrupting the peace. The Five Laws are often displayed: No violence is allowed. No stealing or falsehood is allowed. No harming of the natural environment is allowed. No interfering with the community authority is allowed. No disrupting of the peace is allowed. The Green Forest Walkers have arresting authority. The Homeland Supreme Elders are judges.

Culture[edit]

The population is almost completely Elven with a small population of Gnomes and Halflings. Lorencete culture is in harmony with their environment.

The fashion is nature friendly and varies but they do like to wear emerald green with dark black and bright gold. Although the basic common language is common, Lorencete has a distinctive accent that is recognizable with a Perception DC 10.
