Terenia is a sovereign land, consisting of several counties pledging their fealty to Duke Demiqas Liacan I. Having spent years under oppressive foreign rule, Terenia has proclaimed its autonomy and is now looking to secure its borders and become a respectable Duchy within the Demalion Empire, where its people can stand proud and live free. We are a friendly growing community who aim to create a Duchy where everyone matters, having a leadership hierarchy with a democracy to protect the citizens interests We are a role play oriented community, who wishes to craft stories and connections between our members
We are seeking all kinds of mature players who would be interested in creating an immersive game play experience, With interests in Role Play, whether you're new or experienced we welcome all, though it isn't a requirement
The primary goal of our rule is to ensure an environment where groups and individual can thrive, all united under one banner. Where one can work hard and secure well being for him or his family. Where people are free to practice their faith, and know they will be safe within our borders. And most of all, we want to be a Duchy that serves it's people well.
We will become a Duchy within the Demalion Empire with approval from Emperor Vaizer, following their core principles; Courage, Trust, Loyalty and Generosity which are part of all our lives, we naturally do them without thinking about it. Courage is the quality of mind or spirit that enables us to face difficulties, dangers and pain. Sometimes with fear, but always with bravery. We will always find the courage to stand for our convictions, and to act in accordance to our beliefs, even when met with dire odds, We put trust in those who are deserving of it. Trust is the reliance on integrity, strength, ability, surety. It implies a feeling of security and instinctive unquestionable belief in and reliance upon someone deserving of that trust. That is what it means to have trust in one's governing system. We show unquestionable loyalty to those who have done right by us. For Terenia, this means faithful adherence to the Demalion Empire, as well as faithfulness to whichever commitments or obligations are required of us. Loyalty is the cornerstone of any construction, without it the walls come tumbling down. We always remain generous to those who are our friends and others in need. Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered. Sharing and giving in compassion to our fellow mann is what keeps us from straying off the path of righteousness.
In order to succeed in our endeavors, there needs to be a system that ensures progress being made. The infrastructure of Terenia has therefore been divided into separate branches, all with their individual leaders who are looking to achieve the Duchies prosperity through mutual respect and cooperation. Our main branches are:
Each sector of the Duchy will have their own guild that people can join as to provide the relevant bonus perks to all members
Our military force, and the pride of the Duchy. With the Commander in charge, our troops have their own hierarchy and are divided into special units. Their goal is to protect the Terenian small folk, especially in times of war or conflict.

The Terenian Council
The Terenian Council consist of the current ruling Duke, his Regent (in case one is appointed), and the heads of each individual branch of the Duchy. It was formed by Demiqas Liacan in order to fairly represent the electorate body (senate). The Terenian Council assists the Duke in making the laws of the land, as well as overseeing the governance of the realm. Part of that includes frequent activities such as inquiries, court hearings and council meetings.
Menn and womenn who respect the Duke's laws shall be treated fairly and as equals, and those who serve our cause will always be rewarded for their loyalty. All individual Lords that are part of Terenia rule over their lands as individuals, yet sworn fealty to Duke Liacan is required. The Terenian Senate is a deliberative assembly, formed to ensure that the principles our Duchy is being built on are always secured. Everyone can be elected into senate and represent the people of Terenia, although the honors are most often given to members of the higher class. The senate has the power to provide an opposition to any legislation being passed, as well as influence on our main ruling body
As a member of the Duchy you will be treated fairly and as an equal regardless of rank or title. Through hard work and dedication. Almost any desire you seek will be achieved be it through political, monetary, or influential gains.
