The Broken Crown
A huge walled tiered fortress city, split into the administrative and commercial Upper Askor and the largely residential Lower Askor. The kingdom also encompasses the Lee of Askor, a plain nestled in the Frostback Mountains formed of extraordinarily fertile soil and ringed by former war castles.
The city and kingdom are ruled by the Councils (Inner and Outer), who elect a president to take the ceremonial seat of King. The Outer Council of three hundred is formed of the heads of prominent Askorian families and other civic leaders such as merchants and traders. The Inner Council are selected from among its ranks to head the various ministries that conduct the day-to-day affairs of the kingdom.
