Geography

The Kingdom of Ascalon is a large Kingdom nearly in the exact center of the Corelands. The most prominent landmarks included in the Kingdom are the Bakavis river that splits the realm in half and the great Coi Woods that compromise most of the heartlands. The Coastline in the West forms the border there with the characteristical Bay of the Finger, while in the East the border is formed by the last hills of the Pit.

Origin

Ascalon was founded by local nobles and war-weary Erstan and Rathgari nobles who flocked to the cause of an independant realm. Soon their influence and power grew above their initial neutral position, and made them a full-fledged international player.

Culture

Ascalon has a rather unique culture due to its location and origin. The local culture boasting chivalrous ideals with a hard practical undertone that identified itself with the civilized coastal peoples in the South blended with the immigrant Rathgari and Erstan cultures into a diverse but certianly culturally unified land. The Islanders too had an important part in the creation of this peculiar culture, and often it is said that the original populance once moved here from the Isles themselves.

Religion

Ascalon is a tolerant realm on topic of religion, for it officially follows the Holy Trinity and recognizes the Holy Trinitary State as its head of religion, yet allows other religions to thrive and exist inside its borders.

Economy

Ascalon is a densely-wooded realm and as such it is known for its quality oak- and yew forests. As a result woodworking traditions are widespread and a culture of archery has bloomed inside the realm. While metal deposits are availible inside the hills in the South-East, most veins are of low quality ores and require intensive work to be made useful. As a result Ascalon has come to rely on a steady supply foreign quality ores which combined with the skill of the local smiths has resulted in a blooming armour- and weapon industry. The lush valleys in between the forested hills ensure that agriculture is a valued craft in the Ascalonian hearthlands, and well-established roads led to a slow process of urbanisation taking place, resulting in the jewel of Arescod growing to become a great center of civilisation in the Corelands.
