In the rocky hillside at the foot of Gao mountains rests the region of Lycus. The climate changes early but maintains a dry as it faces the brunt of the western winds. Most of the food in the region comes from fishing in the rivers and Vaccian. The major use of the land is mining the rich gold ores of the Gao. Grazing lands for goats and sheep make use of shepherds to keep the herds safe. The harder lands make Lycus trade for more ornate food stores such as olives and fruit.
The classist system that has been passed down from generation to generation. Its’ people have suffered through the ages as the rich get richer. This belief in class is what brought the, now known “ Eastern Families” , to Agyros. The low privileged families of Maskia packed their families and travelled out of Lycus in hopes of a new beginning and brighter future. A desperation that would soon add to their notorious reputation. The top class, removed from the trivial concerns of the common people, spend their time in courts or honours to the lords of Lycus.
Lycus spans a small area and only has an active boarder with Theron. However, with access to the Vaccian, the trades ships are able to bring luxuries from all over the regions. To the north a pass leads across the Gao. A dangerous place for common folk its’ said that ancient demons scour the area feasting on the blood of the innocent.
Lycus has long been an established region of people. Unifying together against the foreign assaults from the mountains. Its’ early leaders defended them by building strong fortresses however, as those attacks became less the fortresses became places of power over the people. The families in charge of such strongholds used that power to overcome their fellow people. It was only in the reign of Tiberius Corlene that Lycus was breached. The region is now ruled by the widowed Lady of Lycus and her stepdaughter Nix Lycus.
