Loindai (loh-in-die) is the great kingdom of the East. It is the largest, strongest nation on in the eastern world. Much of the land is plains or gentle hills, though forests and rivers form its boundaries. The eastern end of the kingdom is tropical coastal plains, while the weather grows more temperate the farther inland you travel.

Loinese people tend to have naturally fair skin, though those near the coast often have strong tans. Brown hair and eyes are most common, though lighter shades crop up near the southern border with Azeldon. Most men are clean-shaven, though trim goatees have come into fashion in Vacheindoon of late.

Because of its wide swath of plains land, the largest population of people are farmers. Noble lords draw their wealth from how much land they own, largely because of the cities' ever-present need to import food. Within city walls, especially in Vacheindoon and Valonia, life is totally different. High culture and art reign, but duels are commonplace as gentlemen try to prove their worth or win the hands of ladies. The criminal element often remains strong in these complex urban sprawls.

Loindai is divided into seven duchies, not including the region around Vacheindoon. Each duchy is centered on a city and ruled by a duke or duchess. Vacheindoon is ruled by the royal family. Loindai is protected by a mighty army and navy, and the famous Bear Squad. The Bear Squad is an elite unit of shapeshifting Earths that answers only to the king and functions primarily to protect Vacheindoon and the royal family.

Vacheindoon is the capital of Loindai. It is a sprawling metropolis filled with artificial canals, elaborate stonemasonry, and high towers. The city was by the Ancients, razed to the ground during the wars following the Kosharitun, and finally rebuilt in 252. Since then it has stood through the weathers of time and civil war.

While officially the King rules, the day-to-day affairs are governed by the Chamberlain, Nalseir. Guilds operate very prominently Vacheindoon; many national guilds are headquartered there. Vacheindoon is very wealthy, the there are many slums, especially on the outskirts of the city and beyond the walls.

Eye of the Storm

Some say the finest inn in the city, the Eye of the City is near High Market. It features excellent quality rooms and suites, with many amenities, including free breakfast. It features a dinning hall, but no tavern. However, both the Mesmeric Glow and the even nicer Royal Throne are within easy walking distance.

Herald of Dusk

The Herald of Dusk is a nice inn near Low Market. It is a large establishment with dozens of rooms available, as well as two common rooms.
