To be populated by Spies

NOTE: This area of Alusia may be out of date, given the campaign events - The Drow Invasion. A Spy game involving Borovia is under way leading up to Autumn 818 WK.

The County Palatine of Borovia is located north of Midheim in the foothills of the Drachenzahnberge Mountains at the farthest navigable point of the Ruv River.

The County covers about 3500 square miles, although most of this area is rugged foothills and deep forest. Settlements consist of one major town Borovia (population: approx 5,000), and a number of small villages in the surrounding farming areas.

Before 813wk

The population of Borovia is around 12,000: 8,000 human [including 2,000 native (Old) Borovians, and 1,000 Domani.]; 1,500 elven; 1,000 halfling; 700 dwarven; 500 Erelheine; 300 other races.

Seat of government is the Rabenschloß (Castle of the Raven) which stands on a high bluff overlooking the town. Heads of State since 787 WK are Countess Anestasia Desiree and Count Kree Taijin. Head of the civil government is Mayor Ismark.

A variety of languages are spoken in the County. Most people speak at least some Common; other languages in frequent use are Elven (30%), Old Borovian [a derivative of Old Kravonian] (20%), Erelheine (15%).

There is no official religion, but about 10% of the population (mostly the older native Borovians) have some association with the Raphaelite sect of the Elohim. There is some adherence to other religions, including Erelheine animism.

There is no official currency, but most common currencies can be freely exchanged, and merchants from many parts of the Baronies can be found in Borovia. Trade runs south along the new road into Midheim, by river down through Borderlay, by canal (via subterranean tunnel) to Alfheim, and by permanent portal gate to the city of Kyoshin in Kinlu.

An unusual point of interest is the Mechanician's Guild and Seige Warfare training facility run by Katerina, daughter of the late Duke Frederick of Aquila and wife of Baron Silverfoam, Admiral of Borovia, which lies at the foot of the hill upon which is perched the resplendant blue-and-silver Chateau Neuf-de-Pap, the Baronial abode.

History

818 WK

Borovia is currently occupied by Drow and they are a remainder from Drow Invasion of the Western Kingdom. The tunnel between Alfhiem and Borovia has been closed for years. The Borovia portal to Kin-Lu has somehow been retasked to act as a two way portal between Borovia and Elven Isles. A large portion of the general population of Borovia escaped as poor refugees, later becoming guests of the Superstition Mountains Dwarves south of Carzala.

The Elven Isles has been sold to the Kingdom of Destiny and is said to still be largely occupied by the Drow. Few details are known at this stage. The Elvish Court of Alfhiem wishes to have the Drow removed from Borovia ASAP, and hopefully, information which will assist the liberation of the Elven Isles.

The Elvish Court of Alfhiem have requested that Ambassador Isil Eth to support any mission by way of - Coin, Land & Favours, as she sees fit.

817 WK

Most of the forest north of town has been milled and is now a large open mine.

816 WK

Silverfoam is actively paying ~20,000 sp per quarter to the Dwarves of the Superstition Mountain for the upkeep costs.

815 WK

Silverfoam gets a message -

Count Kree was lost in the fighting and was reportedly captured by a serpent snake creature working for the Drow and then sold as a 'charmed' servant of the Ruby Savior (formally the Ruby Scourge). The Ruby Savior sent Silverfoam a message to come find his former master in the Pagen Mountains (the wild dangerous area north of the Duchy of Brandenburg). The Ruby Savior wants Silverfoam to come and get his master.

Silverfoam failed to recover Kree. It is said by the top clairvoyant Alfhiem that without Axis Silverfoam will fail.

814 WK

Silverfoam is actively paying ~20,000 sp per quarter to the Dwarves of the Superstition Mountain for the upkeep costs.

813 WK

An Elite group or Mages and Mercenaries (which was the closest the Guild saw to an extremely strong military) quickly took control of Borovia.Borovia is currently occupied by Drow and they are a remainder from Drow Invasion of the Western Kingdom. The tunnel between Alfhiem and Borovia has been closed for years. The Borovia portal to Kin-Lu has somehow been retasked to act as a two way portal between Borovia and Elvish Isle. A large portion of the general population of Borovia escaped as poor refugees, later becoming guests of the Superstition Mountain Dwarves south of Carzala.

The Elvish Isles has been sold to the Kingdom of Destiny and is said to still be largely occupied by the Drow. Few details are known at this stage.

The Elvish Court of Alfhiem wishes to have the Drow removed from Borovia ASAP, and hopefully information which will assist the liberation of the Elvish Isle.

The payment of budget will need to be agreed to by the ambassador Isil Eth backed by the Elvish Court of Alfhiem will need to be agreed to for the mission. Payment - Coin, Land & Favours.

I understand that Silverfoam got out around +90% of the population (around 11,00 people) by surprise ships that could travel over land (who would have guessed). They were settled by Silverfoam in the Superstition Mountain Dwarven stronghold where they are currently still guests.

The Elite Drow army holding the portal which once went to KinLu now goes to the Elven Isles which are in Drow hands (mostly - totally).

Count Kree was said to be killed allowing for Countess Anestasia Desiree to make it safely away with her guard and family to KinLu or Alfhiem.

The Royal Court of Alfhiem close the trade tunnel and canal between Borovia and Wintergarden of Alfhiem.

The Royal Court of Alfhiem have made it clear to Silverfoam that they wish him to clean up his mess (Borovia and Elven Isles).
