Kingdom of Eridon was a powerful nation in Eastern Arcadia that was dominant in population, trade, size, and military. Following the Demon Invasion of Eridon, the surviving parts of the Kingdom of Eridon broke appart into seperate nations.
After the fall of the Vodan Empire centuries ago, Eridon was the most powerful Kingdom in Arcadia. It expanded, annexing the Dwarven lands in the Dwarflands of the Hemdorkas Hills as well as conquring the Kingdom of Gadia in 1380.
In 1508 was an invasion of Grell in the Hemdorkas Hills, known as the Hemdorkas Incursion. The Grell were beaten back after many casualties, where they went is unknown.
In January 1510, a Demon Invasion struck the cities and towns in the south-east of Eridon before moving to the west then northeast to Heatstroke. The towns of Shirebrook, Thornwood, Rainwood, Peatsburg, Anvil, Plainsview, Tassel, Misty Rapids, Newfort, Cauldron, Heatstroke, & probably Limestone were destroyed by the Demons. Projections that at least 30% of the nation's population were slain in the attacks (~57,000 urban & ~215,000 rural), but the death toll could be higher.
Whiteshore's population also disappeared around this time, it is unknown if this was because of the Demons or another factor.
In the aftermath, Wake County & Highcastle County declared themselves as independant sovreign nations. The Kingdom of Gadia and the Dwarflands broke away back into their former nations. Kneecap & Longcast broke away as independant city states, but with Kneecap still wanting to rule over Longcast, the two towns would fight one-another regularlly.
Villagers/Townsfolk pay taxes to the Village/Town Landed Knight/Lord, those taxes go to the Baron, then to the Count then to the Monarch.
It is custom in Eridon for the dead to be entombed in large catacombs beneath the various temples.
Eridon has been involved in various wars over the years.
