Tol Goldora is primarily both a Trading and Raiding Nation. It's capital is the wealthy Golden Farrow, which acts as a central trade node between the East and West of Dwilight, and acts as an excellent Port City for her allied forces to anchor when travelling the Seas. Furthermore, Golden Farrow allows for Tol Goldoran raiding forces to hit many rogue-controlled Regions all around Dwilight.

Tyrannical by definition rather than inherent nature, the decision to consolidate power around the upper echelons of Tol Goldoran society was agreed upon by the Founding Families upon it's creation and secession from Sol - this was because Tol Goldora had no intention of extending beyond what was originally the De Jure Duchy of Golden Farrow of Old [[Caerwyn]], and therefore an Imperial system would be unsuitable for such a small demesne. The Navarch is the absolute Ruler, with a final say on all and any diplomatic, militaristic or legal decisions when it comes to the stewardship of the realm, but the Navarch may appoint Nobles to perform duties in his stead - the Stratarch was traditionally responsible for Military matters, the Vestarch was responsible for matters of law and governance, with the Sakellion holding the responsibility of Steward to the realm.

A large portion of Tol Goldoran culture derives from Old Caerwynian culture that survived the destruction of the once Great Nation - although Tol Goldora does not claim to be any form of successor, many old naming and cultural traditions were adopted by the ruling caste during the integration of Eastern Colonists and the Western Inhabitants. For example, the old title of 'Archon', once rulers of Caerwyn, was partially adopted into the Tol Goldoran title of Navarch - and many ruling practices of Old Caerwyn were integrated in the ruling system also.

Tol Goldora

Tol Goldora is primarily both a privateering and trading realm, located in western Dwilight. It's capital is the wealthy Golden Farrow, which acts as a central node for the continent due to it's location, which provides many benefits for it's nobles. Previously a young colony fighting for her survival, Tol Goldora now enters a new age with her reclaimed capital by embracing it's traditions to seek continued prosperity.

Tyrannical by definition rather than inherent nature, the decision to consolidate power around the upper echelons of Tol Goldoran society was agreed upon by the Founding Families upon it's creation and legal secession from Sol in Spring Year 46. The Navarch is the absolute Ruler, with a final say on all and any diplomatic, militaristic or legal decisions when it comes to the stewardship of the realm, but the Navarch may appoint Nobles to perform duties in his stead - the Stratarch was traditionally responsible for Military matters, the Vestarch was responsible for matters of law and governance, with the Sakellion holding the responsibility of Steward to the realm.

A large portion of Tol Goldoran culture derives from a melting pot of various cultural ideas from across Dwilight due to it's colonial past. Many of the naming traditions were adopted by old Caerwynian culture but has now developed it's own identity through survival and war.

Culture

The Founders and the Founders Hall

The Founders Hall is a hugely prestigious and respected group of nobles and families of Tol Goldora. Protected by both protected by law and by tradition, families are invited to this hall for their recognised work in promoting Tol Goldora's interests, granted by virtue of the ruling Navarch. Members of the Hall are therefore given preferential treatment for positions of power or titles within the realm, and advise the ruling Navarch as his council.

The Original Founding Families
Name Description
Camlann Family Medrawt Camlann was the organiser, initial military leader of the Colonists, the first Navarch of Tol Goldora and third Stratarch of the realm. Regardless of role, Medrawt was a integral part of Tol Goldora's military might. With the end of the war, Medrawt now governs Farrowfield.
De La Fere Family Nigel de la Fere was the primary benefactor of the initial colonial expedition to Western Dwilight and patron of the Golden Host. He was also appointed the first Duke of the restored duchy of Golden Farrow and tax collector for the realm. Captured in line of service, Duke Nigel was banished to the colonies in Year 51.
Greybrook Family Solomon Greybrook was appointed as the first Stratarch of Tol Goldora and Marshal of the Golden Host upon Medrawt Camlann's appointment as Navarch. During his tenure, Tol Goldoran forces managed to secure much of the De Jure demesne of the Duchy of Golden Farrow. He was also responsible for the admirable defense against Westgard, reclaiming the lost cities of Via, Itau and Echiur and ultimately for the first two years of the War against Westgard Oppression before becoming the second Navarch of Tol Goldora. It was through Solomon's guidance that peace was finally secured through the Golden Farrow Accords. Now at peace, Solomon remains Navarch and Duke of Golden Farrow.
Le Craint Family Emyhr le Craint was the second Marshal of the Golden Host and one of the most reliable military captains throughout the War against Westgard Oppression. With war's end, Emyhr continues to serve as lord of Demyansk.
Nowack Family Bemmy Nowack was appointed as the first Sakellion of Tol Goldora and Earl of Mech Alb. He was responsible for managing the food supplies that first gave Golden Farrow and Tol Goldora the strength needed to fight against the harsh western landscape and through war. With war's end, Bemmy was appointed lord of Via.
Stromhar Family Umerith Stromhar was the primary Diplomat, Ambassador and Representative of Tol Goldora. During his tenure as the first Vestarch to Navarch Camlann, he put in place the system of Government, Laws, and managed the diplomatic affairs of the Nation. He was appointed as Lord of Via from it's capture to his disappearance from Year 52.
Vasiliev Family Berenis Vasiliev was the first Founder to set foot in Golden Farrow and has worked tirelessly ever since as a contributor to policy and tax collector. Founder Berenis was appointed the second Margravine of Itau and with war's end, works to continue Tol Goldora's success.
Acknowledged Founder Families
Name Description
Blue Family While Beryl Blue shall be remembered as a martyr and hero of Tol Goldora, Ziva Blue demonstrated the justification for the Founders to acknowledge the Blue Family as a founder family through her military Marshalship during the Gold Sea War. At war's end, she was declared Lord of Itau.
Bolton Family Roose Bolton joined Tol Goldora after defecting from Westgard at the early stages of the Gold Sea Conflict. Through the majority of the war, Roose served as a capable unit commander, Marshal and then Stratarch. Resuming activity at the end of the war, Roose earnt his place in the Founders Hall from devout service.
