Making of a Realm
The so-called free city of Restov is one of the few remaining independent cities in Brevoy. Led by the Lord Mayor Ioseph Sellemius with the support of the remaining Aldori Swordlords in Brevoy, the city is a large mercantile center in its own rights thanks to its proximity to the Shrike river and the River kingdoms.
Officially it is an ally of Brevoy, to whom it pays protection and homage but unofficially it remains fiercely independent. This defiance of the Brevoy royal crown as increased in recent years with the arrival in the city of a multitude of nobles and important elements from Brevoy that oppose "King" Noleski Surtova.
The city is famous for the various Aldori and Taldan dueling academies which train the scions of Brevoy's noble families in the ancient dueling arts as well as in various other skills, required for your nobles to pave their own ways into the future. Of course, as the basis for these trainings is Baron Sirian Aldori 's notorious fighting style, these nobles also learn the Sword Baron's infamous impulsive temper.
