This southern kingdom is comprised of a large peninsula and the few chains of islands that surround it. Kaelsedeni is the jewel of the south, and is home to the most well-respected artisans, crafters and especially shipwrights on the continent. Everything that a man or woman could hope to purchase can be bought somewhere within the myriad stalls and alleyways of it’s capital city of Whitecrest. The city is kept safe by a navy that requires four years of service from every Kaelsedeni citizen of every race, be they male or female.
Whitecrest is difficult to reach by land due to a range of mountains that shield it from the continent, but it is almost impossible to avoid when traveling by ship. It is the most popular port of call on the continent. Passage to and from the city is usually inexpensive, and several independant ports operate very successfully hundreds of miles away simply by exporting goods to Whitecrest. Piracy that far away from the city is generally a problem and it’s not uncommon for merchants to hire mercenaries to accompany particularly valuable cargo.
In general Kaelsedeni appears to be a very progressive realm, where all races, including some who could be considered monsterous are welcomed as long as they obey the strictly enforced code of laws.
