The County of Arenthia aims to become a diverse center utilizing the principles of cooperation, knowledge and prosperity;
always moving forward, creating an enduring society.
Capital City: Arenthia
Through Knowledge Strength
The County of Arenthia, has been the home of House Dal Riata for centuries. Weristarc has grown due to the incorporation of lands reclaimed during the War of Steadfast Shields. The citizens of the county have historically been inclusive and fierce, residing in the forested mountains and foothills of the region that is now the Duchy of Weristarc and Kingdom of Bordweall.
Arenthia was forged through the War of Steadfast Shields, reclaiming the territory of fallen pledged Houses and uniting against the Empire of Xeilias. The people of Arenthia are born with pride and valor pursuing their diverse ambitions to the highest degree. With this the people of Arenthia uphold our ancestral pillars - cooperation, prosperity and knowledge.
A great importance is allotted to knowledge, it is a pillar of a prosperous and thriving community; with knowledge comes potential for all. This mindset uplifts all play-styles, providing citizens, merchants, guilds and organizations the opportunity to thrive in all aspects.
Diversity is key to success, diversity in trade, profession, play-style and knowledge. Every citizen has an ambition established, some even before stepping into our bustling market or selecting our community as their home. Arenthia encourages these ambitions and hopes to help provide the necessary structure and community needed. All should reach their maximum potential, while achieving the maximum amount of fun.
All are welcome and safe within Arenthia; however, to forge a lasting community, we need to be connected both through mindset, roads and might. These connections will span the entire county allowing citizens and foreigners to traverse our great lands with ease. The community and mindset that has been established here is of the utmost importance and will be protected.
Culture and Biome
The Houses of Arenthia is based on a Germanic and Celtic cultural theme. Because of this theme and the ancestral pillars, the preferred biome for the county will be Montane Steppe, Freshwater Wetland or Grasslands. However, neither of these cultural themes are forced, and with three counties it provides us a better opportunity to meet all citizens’ cultural and tribal wants.
Public Works and Initiatives
The cities and strongholds of Arenthia are defined by their desire to become some of the finest settlements, each with their own culture, focus and charm. In this desire, construction of great landmarks and policies to intrigue and benefit all citizens have emerged such as the Great Library of Arenthia, Hall of Vagrul as well as the Institutional Grant Incentive.
Great Library of Arenthia, the most notable landmark of Helmryk, will be a public library to allow knowledge to flourish throughout Arenthia. The library will be open to the public, house great works of art and feats of knowledge, research and engineering. All are welcome to learn about their craft, our history or taming an otterbear.
Hall of Vagrul, constructed in memoriam to Chieftess Rynol’a Vagrul who sought a path for warriors to test their strength and wit against the finest mercenaries, warriors and soldiers the world had to offer. To be able to claim prestige and competition through the battles of the great hall. Warriors and war maidens attempt to tear fame, glory and riches from the clenched grasp of their opponents. Champions rise and fall inside the Hall of Vagrul.
