The Kingdoms of Hodl Land

The Humans of Hodl Land sought economic power and wealth. Resting in the heartland of the Realm, they were well-positioned for trade and largely engaged in commerce with the Apes and Bears. Ruled by the Merchant Council, comprised of the most successful of the trading families, the Human cities quickly grew in influence and prosperity. As their economic power grew so did their appetite for resources, which caused tension with their neighbors, the Bears and the Apes. While little is known about the origins of the Great Wars, it is believed by many that the discovery of magical gems in the Western Coastal Mountains was the catalyst. This discovery sent human prospectors in mass throughout Grizwood and across the Great Plain, angering both the Bears and Stonytes.
