Legacy of the Silver Raven
Bekru – mostly wood work, large sea trade, small to moderate land trade – populated by all races
Known for its sea trade with hundreds of ships surrounding it, varieties of music, alcohols, foods, and for its arena competitions. A political oasis in a world of kings and queens, Bekru is an Oligarchy, run by a council of merchants, and has very little to be defined as a military save for “The Merchant Protectorate,” the lawkeepers themselves. The Protectorate are essentially paid to maintain order within the nation’s borders, and to provide security along the oceanic trade routes. A great deal of money flows through Bekru constantly, and there is a large emphasis on enjoyment and celebration of life. There is a Theran-style arena in the center of the city, drawing warriors from all corners of the continent to prove themselves before the massive crowds (as it was in Thera before it was lost), and perhaps bring one (or more) of the cheering fans back to one of the many inns or taverns for a night of celebration.
