They can control anything from a single unit of skirmishers, to several units of plate infantry, making every Bannerman indispensable for the defense of the Kingdom.

Since Bannermen usually hold titles beneath the Crown, they too can call upon their vassals, further streghtening the Royal Army, being responsible for small scale battles and sieges.

They are the backbone of the Caorrani armies, for without them, the Generals and the Commander would have no troops to command.

The Caorrani Kings:

The History of the Caorrani

"The transformation of the Caorrani people from a nomadic society to a settled one is a testament to their resilience, adaptability, and unwavering determination to create a better future." - Excerpt from Caorrani History, Legends and Mythology, by Court Historian Aldous

For centuries, the Caorrani people were divided and wandered the Northern lands as a nomadic tribal society, their way of life shaped by the woodlands and forests in which they lived. Despite their many differences, the Caorrani Clans shared a deep sense of community and a strong connection to the natural world. It is believed that the Caorrani share a common heritage with the Rathgari, that branched off sometime in the last millenia.

As the centuries passed, the Caorrani faced many challenges, including harsh weather, disease, and attacks from neighboring tribes, often fighting amongst themselves. But they remained resilient and resourceful, adapting to their environment and finding ways to thrive in even the most difficult conditions, slowly migrating South throughout generations.

Two hundred years ago the Caorrani people made a momentous decision that would ultimately pave the way for their transformation into a powerful society. Tired of the constant struggles and hardships of their nomadic existence, they made the bold choice to abandon their traditional way of life and settle in small villages and tribes throughout their homeland.

This decision was not made lightly, and many Caorrani were initially hesitant to give up their ancestral traditions and ways of living. But they recognized that the nomadic lifestyle was no longer sustainable, and that their future depended on finding a new way to thrive in a rapidly changing world. The Clans that refused to settle down were eventually absorbed or killed by their more settled neighbors, leaving behind only legends of their nomadic ways and the fierce independence that had defined their people for centuries.

They took advantage of a vast area that was seemingly abandoned, its previous owners dead or slumbered.

Slowly as the years went by, their ancient religious rites were forgotten. Their gods no longer worshipped. Faith gave way to progress.

Over the next two centuries, the Caorrani worked tirelessly to build stable and self-sufficient communities, mastering new skills like agriculture, masonry and metalworking, forging new alliances between their Clans. Despite the many challenges they faced along the way, they remained steadfast in their determination to create a better future for themselves and their descendents.

And in the end, their efforts paid off in ways they could never have imagined. With the stability and security provided by their settled way of life, the Caorrani were able to emerge as a powerful and influential people, laying the groundwork for their eventual unification and their adoption of the feudal system.

The Unification of Caorran

"Eoghan Bardach's leadership was crucial in unifying the Caorrani people and establishing a powerful Duchy within the Republic, ultimately paving the way for the rise of an independent Kingdom under his rule as King Eoghan I." - Excerpt from Caorrani History, Legends and Mythology, by Court Historian Aldous

The Caorrani were unified under the leadership of Eoghan Bardach, who saw the potential for greater strength and prosperity in a more centralized society. With his guidance and the support of Clans Cousland, Quelius, Rivacheg, and many more lesser ones, the Caorrani came together to form a powerful Duchy within the great Republic of the Grand Fate, a move that would ultimately change the course of their history.

The Caorrani had actually settled on lands that belonged to the Republic, but were indeed long since abandoned. The Republic saw in the Caorrani people the opportunity to once again make use of this fertile land.

During its brief time as a subrealm of the Republic, the Caorrani people quickly feudalized their society, abandoning their tribal ways and adopting their current hierarchical structure, with a ruling class of lords and vassals, and a system of land ownership and labor obligations. The Caorrani people also began to develop their own system of laws and customs, blending traditional practices with new influences from the Republic.

With access to the knowledge from the Republic's vast libraries, Caorrani technology quickly caught up to that of their suzerains. Their architecture became a mixture of old Caorrani wooden frames and the Republic's stone walls.

It was at this time that the Caorrani greatly expanded their influence to the West of the Farudi River, becoming one of the top producers of Wood in the Republic and with the creation of many different subrealms for each of the main clans.

Over the next years they also expanded South across the sea, colonizing an abandoned Republican island, and East, crossing the Farudi River, reaching Fairshore's borders.

Its capital, also named Caorran by Duke Eoghan, became the current seat of the Caorrani people. It is a city so ancient, that it has functioned as the capital for many long forgotten realms that served beneath the Republic.

As the capital, it was quickly rebuilt and became one of the most developed and modern towns in the realm. The city is a massive sprawl of limed stone houses in stark juxtaposition, with the majestic Royal Palace of Caorran overlooking the city, further fortified by an adjacent castle, which is seamlessly integrated into the Palace walls, creating a unified and impregnable stronghold.

Paved streets bustle with the activity of merchants and peddlers, and are patrolled by a force of trained guardsmen wearing the eagle-crest of House Bardach. On the South-Western edge of the wall you can find the Arena of Caorran.

After the dissolution of the Republic on 34-19-2, Duke Eoghan Bardach became King Eoghan I of the independent Kingdom of Caorran.

Knowing the importance of being part of a larger realm, the King chose to become a member-state of the Western Confederation, being appointed as an Arch-Chancellor for the Confederated Imperium of the Western States.

Under the rule of King Eoghan I, the realm grew in size, reaching 86 estates at its peak. During that time, the realm had over eight noble Houses serving the King as his Dukes, Marquesses and Counts.

The Slumberblight and the Conversion to the Aeternum Solis

"The slumberblight pandemic that plagued Caorran led to the rise of King Cailean I, who saw the need for a strong religion in the Kingdom and converted to the Aeternum Solis, leading to the expansion of the Faith's power and influence." - Excerpt from Caorran and the Eternal God, by Cardinal Rhiannon

All of a sudden, Caorran was hit with a pandemic of slumberblight. Many great Houses fell to the blight. Houses Rivacheg, Kastroya, Drachenfels, Quelius, Atreides, all fell prey to that vile disease over a few short months. Unfortunately, House Bardach was not spared.

Following the sudden slumbering of the King, Duke Cailean Cousland of Gallaran ascended to the throne. Serving as the Kingdom's Chancellor in the years before, having marital ties to the royal family as the spouse of Princess Margaret Bardach and being the father of King Eoghan's grandson, Duke Cailean was well received as a legitimate ruler and was named King Cailean I, before earning his nickname.

The new King believed the slumberblight pandemic that had afflicted most of the Caorrani Houses was a divine punishment for the lack of Faith in the Kingdom. Although the Caorrani people adhered to certain spiritual beliefs of the Caorrani Customs, their way of life was not dictated by an organized religion. As a result, the ancient Caorrani rites have been lost for decades, and their customs now reflected more of their cultural values than religious ones.

He was determined to save his people, and for that Caorran would need to have a strong religion. On 37-26-3, King Cailean the Undying converted to the Aeternum Solis, alongside Duke Avalon an Dòchais, and together they oversaw the mass conversion of the Caorrani people, assuming that the protection of the Eternal God would prevent such a catastrophe from happening again.

The Cathedral of the Sun was built in Àirde to serve as the seat of the Caorrani Cardinal before the Ecclesia and as the main religious temple of the Kingdom.

King Cailean the Undying enacted the "Official Recognition of the Aeternum Solis Act" on 37-37-3, which recognizes the Aeternum Solis as the official religion of the Kingdom.

The Independence from the West

"With unwavering dedication, I embrace the responsibility to guide our people toward a future where the spirit of Caorran thrives independently and unbound. The echoes of my grandfather and father's vision resonate within me, a vision that ignited the flame of unity and sovereignty. Today, we embark on a journey towards a bright future, a future that is truly our own." - King Aodhàn I at his speech after signing the Declaration of Independence

Following King Cailean's mass conversion, Empress Sharona Arbuckle, aligned with the objective of achieving cultural cohesion across the western sphere to ensure the Confederation's stability, decided to declare the Aeternum Solis as the official religion of the Confederation.

This decision set the stage for the events chronicled by Court Historian Aldous on Chapter 4: Caorran and the Triumvirate and the Triumvir Wars. In summary, it resulted in the reformation of the West into a Triumvirate, with King Cailean the Undying standing as one of the Triumvirs, alongside Sharona and Asran The Light-Bearer.

The subsequent Triumvir Wars saw Triumvir Sharona being removed from power, and King Cailean earning the epithet 'The Undying.' However, on 39-30-4, Cailean met his demise in battle at the hands of the Talornidr on the outskirts of Orikos, led by the warrior Bahana d'Jelailos - Kingsdoom. Outnumbered and facing relentless enemy reinforcements, the Undying King met his fate.

His son, King Aodhàn I, also known as King Aodhàn the Unbound, ascended to the Caorrani throne after Cailean's death.

In the aftermath of Sharona's removal and Cailean's death, Triumvir Asran declared himself an Apotheon, a title with significant cultural connotations in Asrian culture, loosely translating to "one who is exalted or elevated to a state of godhood." This title implied supreme authority, suggesting that Asran had ascended to a divine-like status, even over the Solar Ecclesiarch of the Aeternum Solis. Instead of initiating an election within the Western Senate to fill the vacant Triumvir positions, Asran unilaterally declared himself the sole ruler of the West, assuming the title of Autokrator, an unchallenged ruler.

This proclamation sparked intense debates in the Western Senate, with the Caorrani nobility vehemently opposing Asran's ascension as the sole Emperor of the West.

Ultimately, on 40-1-4, King Aodhàn signed Caorran's Declaration of Independence alongside the Caorrani nobility, declaring the Kingdom's sovereignty. Aodhàn delivered a stirring speech at the Royal Palace of Caorran, earning him the moniker 'The Unbound.' A few weeks later, Autokrator Asran was crowned as the Emperor of the Imperium Asraniae.

After almost two years of uncertainty, on 41-44-1, Asran The Light-Bearer issued an Imperial Proclamation recognizing Caorran as an independent and sovereign realm, thereby renouncing all claims on Caorrani lands.
