"Procerans have always been the villains in our plays, scheming Alamans and grasping Arlesites. Given our history this is understandable, my Strategos, but you and I know the truth of of it. The Principate is the final line of defence between Calernia and Evil. Two millennia they have kept the Dead King on his shore of the northern lakes and even longer have they turned back the ratling plague, without aid or succour from the rest of the continent. When Procer fails, the light of civilization dims and the monsters all get a little closer to our homes."
―Eleusia Vokor, Nicean ambassador to the Principate[1]
The Principate of Procer, referred to also as "the Principate" or simply "Procer" is the biggest and most populous polity on Calernia that lies to the west of Callow. It is a Good polity and that sees itself as the bulwark against Evil despite of it's long history of wars with neighbors alligned with both Good and Evil. It is currently ruled by First Prince Cordelia Hasenbach and the capital is Salia.

History Edit

Early History Edit

The Principate is said to have been founded after both the Dread Empire and the Kingdom of Callow. It was part of the lands conquered by Dread Empress Triumphant.

Modern Era Edit

The Principate erupted into a civil war that lasted two decades simultaneously with the beginning of the Praesi annexation of Callow. Assassin is implied to have triggered it by assassinating the First Prince of the time, at the behest of Black Knight.

Ethnicities/Races Edit

We've only ever seen humans from the Principate, and the inhabitants are said to be divided in three ethnic groups: the Alamans, Arlesites and Lycaonese. Cordelia Hasenbach and her uncle Klaus are both Lycaonese, respective rulers of their principalities. The three groups speak different languages and there are some cultural tensions between them.

Geography Edit

The Principate is the second-largest nation on Calernia, after the Kingdom Under. It is significantly bigger than the next surface nation.

Government Edit

Procer is a confederation consisting of 23 principalities. It's governed by High Assmebly of the ruling Princes of each principality. The Assembly elects a First Prince who then becomes the head of state. The First Prince has higher authority than the other princes but still needs the approval of the assembly for important decisions.

Foreign Relations Edit

Procer is hostile to the Dread Empire of Praes. Mainly because Praes is evil and the most powerful rival for continental hegemony.

Procer also has a hostile relationship with the Titanomachy, aftermath of the Humbling of Titans.

Callow and the Dominion of Levant were both annexed by Procer for some time and do not remember this fondly. The realationships are normally not outright hostile but very strained.

Procer is always at war with the Chain of Hunger and the Kingdom of the Dead. Both conduct regular raiding expeditions into Procer.
