The story of the County of Kernothia began hundreds of years ago, before the plague killed most of the inhabitants of Elyria. Kernothia was a small county on the coast of Myrkland, the royal Duchy of Tryggr, which was already known for its university and agriculture. The jewel of the county was its capital Thalasia, which stretched over several vital rivers and was the center of coastal trade for the duchy and its people. But our story would not be complete without the County of Aranmano, which borders directly on Kernothia. The two counties had a long and good relationship for the past several decades.
As the plague befall Elyria and decimated the population, the friendship of the two counties was put to the test. Desperate, both houses tried to help each other, but even by many heroic actions, hardly anyone was spared the ravages of the plague. Both noble houses were almost extinguished. When a remedy for the plague was found in distant lands, only two members of the once great aristocratic houses remained alive. The survivors of the Bullgardt and Goldenfeld families got together and and after a long time they managed to rebuild the two counties together. This resulted in such a close bond between the two houses that it was decided to make one county out of the two, which was to be ruled from here on out by the line of the Goldenfelds. The Bullgardt family wanted to focus more on their animal husbandry and the Goldenfeld family showed more interest in leadership and the future of the new county.
In the present, the wise and kind-hearted King of Tryggr Darkh Kilmaar, whose family ruled the kingdom since the beginning of time, proclaimed a great feast to celebrate the Longest Night in a feast fitting for the Virtori. All noblemen of the kingdom were invited to this festival, thus also the present count Gregor Goldenfeld of Kernothia. So it happened, that he met the Princess Emma Kilmaar, sister of the king, and immediately fell head over heels in love with her. After a long courtship, many glittering gifts and exciting rare objects, the king gave his consent for Count Gregor to marry his beloved sister.
There was a big wedding to which nobles and Commoners alike from all over the kingdom were invited. In keeping with tradition, the festivities lasted a week in which a lot was eaten, drunk, sung and played. A celebration like this has not been seen in the capitol of Tryggr for a long time. And from that moment on, the houses Kilmaar and Goldenfeld were bonded to each other in perpetuity.

And from that moment on, the houses Kilmaar and Goldenfeld were bonded to each other in perpetuity.
The name of the county, Kernothia, derives from the name of the Celtic god of nature, Cernunnos. Accordingly, the focus of the county is on agriculture and animal husbandry.
In Kernothia reside the guilds Reiche Ernte for agriculture and Edelspan for wood processing. Also of importance shall be trade and the research in the University of the capital through the Opus Alchemica.
Depending on the biome in which the county will be, other crafts are also present to make the best use of existing resources and to create and maintain a thriving economy. We would like to be by a river or lake or maybe even by the sea, but we will describe the actual situation here as soon as we know more about it.
