The Scarlet Kingdom is a kingdom planned around giving freedom to those who are oppressed or suppressed, those who feel like they are not welcome anywhere else. Be they undead, demon, devil, giant, ogre, dragon, linnorm, kraken, mind flayer, et cetera, et cetera, they can find a home within this kingdom so long as they follow the laws as given, and respect general authority.

The breakage of laws, insubordination, treason, and general lack of all regards for others will be subject to harsh punishment of any form that is deemed necessary. Creatures that possess in intelligence are given freedom within the bounds of the Scarlet Kingdom, creatures that are considered mindless or otherwise act without direction are subject to individual scrutiny by the Scarlet Court.

The Scarlet Kingdom is a non-hostile, fully self preservation imposed kingdom with a base alignment of Neutral Evil, although since Cayden Blackmoore assumed leadership of the kingdom, it has opened up diplomatic talks across Siacros. We allow the acquisition and usage of the Undead within the kingdom as well, so long as it doesn't infringe upon individuals freedom.

History

The Scarlet Kingdom was originally founded by the Vampire King early in the stages of the discovery of the continent of Siacros, and is said to be among the oldest kingdoms on the continent. Although it had been closed off and isolated for a long time, with the absence of the Vampire King a new ruler had emerged and is slowly beginning to open up diplomatic talks. Due to the closed of nature of the kingdom before its current ruler, the Scarlet Kingdom has not been part of any historical events.

Geography

Located in the south west of Siacros, the Scarlet Kingdom is expanding across a series of isles almost polar in nature. Despite these conditions the land is covered in dense forests in adiition to impressive mountain ranges. Due to natural phenomenons, the central island seems to be somewhat warmer than the surrounding ones, being the only one that is not entirely covered in snow. That being said, temperatures in the Scarlet Kingdom are nonetheless considered low ranging from the highest measured temperature at 15°C in the summer, to the lowest measured temperature of -50°C in the winter and scientists sure that they can dip even lower.

Cities

The Heart

Being the founding city of the Scarlet Kingdom and its capital, The Heart is exactly what its name suggests. Located on the central island of the kingdom, this metropolis is the seat of the Scarlet Court as well as the heart to many operations.
