Atler (The Fomorian Empire)
The city of Atler was founded in the year 51FO [252SA] against strong resistance from the Kolari. In the year 74FO [275SA], new colonists arrived and founded the city of Maboiba. Over the centuries since establishing the kingdom, Atler has learned the value of diplomacy. They fight only when they must and then only until the enemy admits defeat. If war can be avoided, they surely do so.
The cities in this nation are its capital, Atler (16,000), and Maboiba (10,000). The total population of the nation is 110,000.
Atler's Royal Army has 2,400 footmen and 800 cavalry. They can raise 4,800 militia, including 800 horse (all trained). The fleet contains 10 warships, 3 of which are triremes.
Atler's economy is based on agriculture and forestry. They import most of their metal and finished goods. They are dependent on trade for continued prosperity.
The chief god of Atler is Enki. They also worship Ashur, Vahagn and Inanna.
The people of Atler are honorable, but not fanatically so. They can, and will, lie, cheat or steal when it is the diplomatic thing to do. As a people, they are tactful pragmatists with suave and cultured manners and a touch of arrogant pride.
The King of Atler is an absolute ruler. The sentence for all crimes is as specified for Fomoria. Once guilt is proven, the sentence stands regardless of the wealth or power of the felon.
Atler's strongest ally is the Kingdom of Xan. It has friendly relations with the Kolaro and the other Fomorian kings.
Atler is hated by A'Korchu because it threatens Korchi power in the Kolar peninsula. Korchi raids of Atler have led to ill will toward the Kingdom of the Islands. Atler believes it is that kingdom's duty to stop the raiding fleets at sea.
