Westmarch is a kingdom located on the eastern shores of the North Western Continent.

Kingdom of Westmarch was established by the Helmsworth Dynasty which conquered and unified the Eastern provinces of the continent (Northshire, Darkshire and Southshire).

It is a feudal monarchy ruled by the Crown which owns all of the land in the Kingdom. The monarch grants fiefdoms to the Lords of Westmarch in exchange for loyalty and service. Each of the Lords is a high born aristocrat who oversees a province, and has their own feudal vassals.

Landsmet is the assembly of the Lords, their vassals, as well as landed gentry and Knights which may be called to either ratify or veto King's decree. The Landsmet also sets the rules of succession and gives the Lords an ability to petition the king, or seek grievances against the kind for unfair treatment.

The flag and heraldry of Westmarch uses a cross motif, which symbolizes the hilt of Calibri - the legendary Vorpal Blade of King Robert.

Major Cities

Westmarch cities are their own feudal domains separate from the provinces. Each major city (except for Highport) is ruled by a Governor which is a non-hereditary title granted by the Crown and equal in status to that of a Lord.
