On the Hunt
Gafralk Empire (Imperial Stehl)
The Gafralk Empire, also commonly called Imperial Stehl, is found north of the Blasting Peaks, and is the northernmost nation on the continent. As far as the rest of the nations know (at least publicly) Gafralk is a collection of barbarian tribes that have come together under one ruler in order to stay strong, even going so far as to incorporate some Orc tribes (allegedly). The people are tough, hardened, and as durable as the mountains they use a shield to the rest of the continent. The ruler Rad-ah has taken over and is the undisputed champion of the north. His Assembly controls all trade, commerce, war, and travel through the region, and getting into the country is difficult without some kind of connection to this group. The king has not been seen for quite some time by any outside of his advisors, but this could me he is plotting his next move. Rumors have spread that he is amassing his own collection of relics and artifacts, including an ancient blood-thirsty sword with immense power.
