The Kingdom of Norta, simply known as Norta, is a country located in the northeast. Its capital is Archeon and its government is led by a monarchy formed from the Silver Houses. It has been called as the "light of the world" by its citizens due to its technology and power.
The country of Norta was forged from smaller kingdoms and lordships, ranging in size from the Samos kingdom of the Rift to the city-state Delphie. Caesar Calore, a Silver lord of Archeon and a talented tactician, united fractured Norta against the looming threat of joint invasion by Piedmont and the Lakelands. Once he crowned himself king, he married his daughter Juliana to Garion Savanna, the ruling high prince of Piedmont. This act cemented a lasting alliance between House Calore and the princes of Piedmont. Many children of Calore and Piedmont royalty upheld the marriage alliance for the following centuries. King Caesar brought an age of prosperity to Norta, and as such, Nortan calendars consider the beginning of his reign the demarcation of the “New Era,” or NE.
Norta is rocky and full of forested hills. It has several rivers dotted with water mills and a sea. Silver cities are guarded and surrounded by diamondglass walls, while Red villages are left with little care.
