General Information:

The Grand County of Areli lies within the Grand Duchy of Aquitania of the KIngdom of Tyria. The County is located in the fertile grasslands of Tyria and will primarily be inhabited by Nerans, though there will be a small subset of other tribes who have come to call this region home.
The County seat of power is the stronghold of Black Lion Keep.
House Areli is historically and currently the presiding ruler of the Grand County which was named after the noble House. Historically, House Areli started off as one of many warring tribes through the bloody history of these lands. Through the ebb and flow of time, wars, and politics, it grew into a minor noble house until the great conflicts which gave way to form the borders of the kingdoms to this day which saw House Areli rising in prominence through valor and faithful military service to House Ortherion through many generations.
The Grand County is saturated in rich military history and tradition and chief among its values are the same ones which shaped this land - Loyalty, Valor, and Strength. Many generations of Knights and Soldiers reside in the Grand County as House Areli had also bestowed land and wealth to those who had loyally fought alongside them in the years of the bloodiest and uncertain conflicts. Coming out on the winning side of these historical battles has granted the County and its citizens with a manner of prosperity as well; however, a new age has dawned upon us and is now summoning a new generation of heroes of this age as the distant beat of the drums of war approaches closer and closer.

County Map Overview

The Grand County of Areli is one of the most sprawling and largest counties on the continent, if not the largest by parcel count.
Perhaps due to the constant threat of raids and wars during the age of tribal warlords, these lands have also bred generations upon generations of some of the bravest men and women. As a land steeped with such warrior tradition, it is not uncommon to find even the "lowliest" of Areli farmers to display courage and proficiency with a weapon. Many opportunities await those who would call this county home. The Lions of Areli stand proud to defend the realm with courage and strength of arms.
The vast, fertile lands also produce a tremendous amount of grains, vegetables, and livestock that humbly finds its way to the dining tables of commoners, nobles, and kings alike in the surrounding domains.
Some of the finest of Aquitanian Red wines are also produced in this region, thanks to the hills cradling the morning fog and rolling sea mist to regulate the temperature and sun exposure of the delicate grape varieties that this region is known for.
Unique among these wines are the Areli Bloodwines. The wines do not actually contain blood but are named such as they are produced from vines planted long ago upon the battlefields of one of the bloodiest of conflicts in the history of this region. It was hence known as the Field of Blood or the Field of Tears as tens of thousands of lives were claimed in that battle, and losses were heavy on all sides of the conflict. However, the people of Aquitania and Areli emerged as victors and the vines were planted as a memorial to the lives of those given to safeguard the new era of peace in the lands. The vines are among some of the oldest in the region.
The superstitious attribute the superb quality of the wines to the blessings of the spirits of old warriors. Scholars attribute it to the soil composition, organic and mineral matter deposited into the ground from the battle that claimed tens of thousands of lives. Old Areli vitners and farmers say great wines are made from struggling grapes, and that it is because the vines in this particular vineyard have to struggle harder than is typical, due to less accessibility to water than when compared to other vineyards in the region. Regardless of what the claims may be, it is undeniable that the wines produced here, though not abundant in quantity, are made up for in remarkable quality.
