Oldest of the empires, Mordosia lies to the north of the Wild Plain, in the shape of a rough crescent. The Emperor or Empress rules alongside a Council of the High Lords and Ladies, or their representatives. The High Lords hold much power in their districts, though only through the Emperor’s will can a Lord be raised to the High Seat. As always, the politics are murky, but for decades or longer a balance has held between Lord and Emperor, with a surprising lack of power struggles.
The Imperial House is human, but the lords vary in race. Mordosia claims no preference of any one sapient species over another, at least as far as the civilized races go.
