The Trineveld

The Trineveld is a large peninsula in the west of Vaehrya. For centuries it had been made up of small, warring city-states until the entire area was subsumed one by one into the Temian Empire between 3-400 years before the Cataclysm.
While part of the empire, each former city state became the seat of its own province, and a general peace was upheld for about 250 years, despite periodic uprisings and border disputes.
Since the Cataclysm, these provinces have declared themselves independent monarchies and tensions have resumed.
