(NA-E) County of Somnium

The County of Somnium

Somnium in many ways, is no different than any other county in the Broadleaf Forest. It is covered almost entirely by forest in which all matters of creature can be found. Rivers and streams wind their way through the thickets supplying water to the many hamlets scattered along their banks. But those who visit say that there is something different, something wrong. Misfortune seems to stalk those who pass through and to a greater degree those who choose to stay. Yet they remain, a fact that confounds outsiders and is likely to continue doing so. Those who come to do business in Somnium often do their business and leave, seldomly staying long enough to answer the question.


1. Specialized Production of Textiles.
2. Specialized Production of Glass.
3. Research and Development.
4. Exploration.

Somnium, as a county, will focus mainly on production, research, and to a lesser degree exploration. We welcome any kind of playstyle but will be aiming to attract researchers, crafters and explorers in particular. This said, there will be opportunities for enterprising individuals to secure investment from myself to establish hamlets in the county of Somnium, especially if they are related to agriculture, forestry, glassmaking or textiles. Finally, for those who prove themselves to be trust worthy and capable leadership positions will be made available.

City of Nauseam

The city of Nauseam in much the same way bewilders passersby. Predatory yellow eyes pursue you as you navigate confusing, winding paths. There is an inexorable feeling of unease floating in the air, marked by an absence of something. Something so often taken for granted that it is becomes difficult to identify. The material has come to serve as replacement for the immaterial. Gentry and aristocracy alike make great efforts to appear better off, clothing of the finest silks hang off their bodies, beautiful tapestries of crimson are suspended from their rafters. Stained glass windows transform any light that filters through them, and when it gets dark solitary lamp posts line the streets directing people towards the taverns.

And it is all because of the Pontis, the ruling family of Somnium. So often experiencing tragedy and grief that they chose instead to pursue their more carnal desires. By doing so they drowned their emotions in excess. Eventually numbing themselves, forgetting tragedies like the execution of Finn Pontis by King Phyllain. But this is only one of the many misfortunes that have befallen the Pontis family. Urban legend states that black cats are their misfortunes given physical form, for which there are many in Nauseam.

Nauseam will be home to two large and well-equipped guilds in which research will focus on textile and glass products. This will be partnered up with a manufacturing hub that specializes in the production of textile and glass products. To keep with the overall theme of Nauseam the city will have a large population of black cats wandering the streets and faceless owls staring accusingly from the forest canopy. Furthermore, citizens will be encouraged to dress extravagantly, ways in which to lower the cost of clothing will be explored.
