The Betrayal of the Stars
Recently separated through a bloody uprising, Claydan is home to a harsh and racist military regime. The entirety of Claydan used to belong to The United Marches until a small group of radical separatists started to gain some traction. These separatists called themselves Purists and upheld the notion that all races that were not human were lesser and deserved to be destroyed. They spent their time as a younger organization preaching their intolerant ideals and trying to convince those in power to sever the peaceful alliances they held with The Dorvale and Therimduhr. As their power grew they eventually came to physical confrontations with the peaceful citizens of The Marches. After a short-lived, but bloody uprising, they claimed the land of Claydan for their own, renouncing their pledge to The Marches and their love of non-humans. They claimed all the territory south of the Eashburgh Marshes as their own and have just recently begun building up a military with which to invade The Marches. Life in this particular nation is of low quality, demanding all your time, energy and efforts to be pledged towards building up the military and life is even worse if you aren’t a human.
