As the longest standing kingdom on the continent, they pride themselves with having “God’s” blessing. The people here are all but cult-like with their beliefs. For centuries, they have held true to their testaments and scripture. They did help with the creation of Thule and were open to any traveler. Being so close to the ocean, it made it simple to feed their people with tons of fish and crops. They were always looked at as hospitable and charitable people, however they were known to get violent when their beliefs were questioned.
About ten years ago, the king of the kingdom was overthrown by the citizens. It is said that their Pope had spoke to god himself! Rumor spread about the kingdom itself and soon enough the other villages and kingdom had gotten word that the Pope was now the new ruler. On top of that, the formerly open gates were now closed to everything but trade. People heard some sketchy rumors about the Pope being close to God but there is nothing other than rumors.
-Fishing boat found a giant creature on land that could speak. It spoke to the Pope and spoke of it’s immortality. The Pope knew of the sick people in town and asked the God if there was a way to heal his people. The God said there was, but first they needed to gather it food. This caused the sacrifice of the King and his family. The King wanted to sacrifice the orphans to the God to appease it but the kingdom itself declined that and instead sacrifice the King and the family. The God then stated he would help them make the children in the kingdom the “chosen” people.
-Greed soon took over after the first “healed” and this began the experimentation. They believe to be using the God but it’s finding amusement in their experiments.
