Carelian nobles spend their days preparing for their next battle and singing songs of victory over their last. Carelia is a realm in which the brave prosper and the cowardly wither.
Loyal service to the realm and honor in battle are the only ways to claim one of the seats of power. Newer troops leaders will receive the finest tutelage from our veteran nobles. Fresh faces, ready to spill blood in the name of Carelia, are always welcome.
Carelia has historically prided itself on being a kingdom of heroes. In recent years, since the absorption of many members of the Ash Sea Islands and the resulting influx of followers of Magna Serpaensism during the First Cagilan Conquest, Carelia's position as a realm where nobles are allowed to practice and encourage any religion they desire has become one of its major cultural cornerstones. Also of import has been the division of power between the monarch and the nobles of the realm.
In 2008, the Cagilan Empire won a war with Carelia, forcing Carelia into a treaty that allowed the Empire temporary control over Carelia's western duchies, and making Carelia an ally of the Empire. This led to Carelia being a member of the Imperial faction in the First Cagilan Conquest, where Carelia gained the western portions of the Ash Sea Islands.
In early 2010, Carelia fought an inconclusive war with Caergoth and Suville over the disposition of temples devoted to Magna Serpaensism within Carelian lands. Soon after that war, King Bartho stepped down and was replaced by Queen Leta, who formed an alliance with Caergoth and Suville (referred to as the Southern Collective) to wage war with the Cagilan Empire as part of the Great Atamaran Revolt.
