Draiman Combine

Along the equator of Yerth lies a vast land of nation-states held together by a subtly totalitarian magocracy. Ostensibly working together for their mutual protection and survival, the people of the Combine are generally xenophobic, paranoid and somewhat insular. While barely qualifying as a cohesive nation, the Combine nonetheless has been able to protect its borders for centuries from bandits, monsters and beasts of all kinds. The Combine has never faced a true invasion – due mainly to the geography and the fact its neighbors are not really interested in empire building. The Combine has calved two smaller nations, the isolated kingdom of Molgar and the Tesra Republic. Negotiations are often tense, if not openly hostile between these nations.

Organizations of the Combine

Several organizations are prominent in the social and governmental fabric of the Combine. They are the institutions that make government work, commerce flow and in some places, give home to the disenfranchised.
The Council of Ten sits in Draima and makes policy for the Combine.
The Guild of Trades runs many of the trade and supply caravans that travel through and beyond the Combine. Local offices also license local businesses to operate in cities and towns.
The bank, Aleaos and Taybios is the largest bank in the Combine, accepting deposits and withdrawals via Bills of Exchange.
The Bloody Hand Cartel is the largest crime syndicate in the Combine.
