"We Corginians are a proud people, and we hate being picked up." - King of the Corginians

Corgyn Adventurer by [1]


Corginia is a city of corgi people who live among the ruins of a civilisation long gone. The city’s buildings and structures are sparse among a vast plane of rolling hills and grassy fields. Small rivers enclose most of Corginia inside as most find it hard to swim and difficult to cross. But outside the city’s boundaries lie picturesque mountains and vast forest lands beyond them.

Corginians live peaceful lives, ruled by a monarchy. Their days are often spent sleeping in sunbeams, scratching themselves upon abandoned statues and tree stumps, as well as playing with toys and using them in games. They are big into sport and games, tinkering, and love eating. Most of their mechanical and arcane creations mostly serve to facilitate this lifestyle.

Physical Description[edit]
