The Duchy of Achlys is ruled over by the Duke and Imperial Councilor Asteroth of House Vyre, it is located within the Empire of Demalion and will be on the EU server. We are aiming to choose a coastal landform which we intend to extend in the future. Our goal is to focus on trade and economy to support and flourish our duchy and military in its growth and development.
The military being one of our main focuses and the Duchy’s glory, they will be led by the Warlord. Our military is expected to conduct themselves properly as not to disgrace the Warlord or the Duchy. The warlord will be leading all the units except one which will be under the Duke’s direct supervision (Cavalry units) due to its speed in critical situations. Large quantities of the economy’s money will be directed to the military to equip them with armor, weapons and other requirements as needed. The Army is expected to aid and protect our Empire and answer to the Emperor’s call in the times of war. As the Barons play a powerful role in the production of the military they will be given special support and receive rewards for their efforts to protect the Duchy.
Another one of our main focuses will be trading, we warmly welcome everyone to trade with us, no matter where you come from. Although we offer our hospitality to everyone, we will not welcome those who do not follow the rules of trading or of the Duchy. But thanks to a fair tax and law system, there are no reasons to break any of the rules. We will establish a great trading hub, where you can offer your goods and talk to other merchants. Whether on land or at sea, our Duchy protects all important trade routes so you can travel safely and only have to worry about your business. The four principles of our Empire are reflected in trading: Be courageous, take the long journey to us and you can make a great deal. Trust the honest traders here and you will be able to make even better deals. Be generous and help your trading partners, if they are in trouble - fair enough, they will also help you if you get into a sticky situation. And finally: show loyalty and visit our places regularly, so you will never miss a great opportunity. As a Duchy which focuses on trading, we want to have a large and open economy.
