For the Empire!
Averland is a province of the Empire. Its capital is Averhiem. The province’s state colours are yellow and black.
Averland is one of the richest provinces in the Empire, though it is neither the largest nor the most influential and its army is famous for its ostentatious uniforms. Its wide open plaines are perfect for growing crops but the most important feature of the province is the Blackfire Pass. The pass, a deep volcanic cleft in the Black Mountains is the only reliable pass through the mountains. An old Dwarf road runs through the pass conecting the Dwarf holds of the Worlds Edge Mountains and the lands of the Border Princes to the The Empire; trade goods, especially the valuable metal ores from the Dwarf’s flow constantly into Averhiem. These goods are then transported from Averhiem by river to Nuln. The pass is perpetually attacked by Orc and Goblin tribes and keeping the way safe for trade is a difficult task. Guardianship of the pass falls to the Mountain Guard, the elite of the Averland forces.
The Elector Count of Averland is ‘Mad’ Marius Leitdorf
