The divided Golden Empire of Pytharnia in the twelfth century

The Golden Empire of Pytharnia is a historic Yophenthean Successor State which originally included all of southern Pytharnia, including Ambrulia. The Golden Empire is so called for the Arathraciot Yophenthean Dynasties that ruled it through its history from the eleventh to the middle twelfth century. The Golden Empire endured as a single entity, surviving the secession of subject peoples, including the Ithradic Dwarves, the Disdrirn Elves, and the Medibgösk, and continual assaults from the sky-warriors of Thrace, gakhyami, and the decline of central authority in Trevirs and later Bryndyd. The Golviaril Dynasty ruled the entire empire for the longest until 1127 when the Deavingeal Dynasty wrested the western empire and established their capital in Bryndyd until 1140, outlasting the Golviaril Dynasty by about thirteen years. While both dynasties acknowledged the authority of the Erechórebese Sunfathers, the Deavingeal Dynasty worked in greater cooperation with the Erechórebese Sunfather and claimed they were purifying the church and preparing for re-unification with the island. Both kingdoms eventually succumbed to external invasions and internal discord. The Golden Empire of Pytharnia preserved much order, Yophenthean Law, the use of the Classical Yophenthean Language, and protected humans from the rising onslaught of humanlikes and sky warriors. The dynasties propped themselves up as kings, acknowledged the ecclesiastical power of the Erechórebese Sunfather, and defended the Arathracian Religion. (Full Article...)

Map of the Boroughs of Trevirs

Great City of Trevirs

Trevirs is the most populous human city in the Pallathantic Region with 960,000 inhabitants, the fourth most populous in the old world, and heir to a past reaching back into the mists of human history. Trevirs rests atop a large prominence of hills in the Magdalanate of the Empire of Magdala. The Palace of the Imperial Diet rests in Trevirs. Historically, Trevirs was also the place of the Imperial Palace. The city is sometimes called Great Trevirs to distinguish it expressly from Royal Trevirs. Trevirs arose in very ancient times as a Pytharnian Giant settlement and eventually came under control of various human tribes. Since the Fall of the Yophenthean Empire, Trevirs has served as an important skyport between the western Jaggudorns, Medibgö, and the Pallathantic Region. Trevirs is the financial capital of southeastern Pytharnia and the seat of the headquarters of several important organizations including the Dwarven Dragonrail Guild of Pytharnia and the Sovereign Archguild of Master Titancrafters of Pytharnia. Trevirs remains the seat of the Palace of the Imperial Diet of Magdala. (Full Article...)
