Kyros' Empire is the largest state on Terratus. Kyros the Overlord is ruler of Terratus, the known world. The Overlord's Empire stretches from the Winter Sea in the east to the shores of the Tiers in the west.

Background[edit | edit source]

Composed of countless states, ranging from petty chiefdoms and feral tribes to the advanced, iron age Northern Empire, the Empire brings peace through power to its subjects. Kyros' Empire is based on efficiency and rationality. Conquered populations are either subjugated by force (if they resisted) or allowed to continue to govern themselves after Kyros' reforms are introduced (which includes dismantling hereditary succession systems and other obviously flawed methods of governance).[1]

Notably, in exchange for sovereignty, Kyros extends a generous offer of her Peace to the subjects. Those who pledge life to Kyros are guaranteed freedom from hunger (food is redistributed to provide it to all), domestic disturbance (Overlord's forces quash crime and uprising), and hopelessness or fear (as Kyros' agents plan economic stability, which includes placing teens and adults into crafts, trades, basic non-written education, and access to basic healthcare). By extension, the Overlord remains at war at all who have not yet accepted her Peace.[2]

Laws[edit | edit source]

Main: Kyros' law

Notably, women enjoy equal protections under the laws of Overlord Kyros. In the southern lands of the Tiers, women may crew a ship, but only men may own or captain a vessel. While these customs give the oceans to the men, the lands are trusted to the women - men may rent and lease, but only women may own land and bequeath it to their daughters and sisters.

While following a parent's profession is standard, many women choose to pledge service to one of the Overlord's powerful Archons. Those without a viable trade or lands to call their own are often drafted into the armies of the Archons, where it is assumed they will rise to glory or vanish in obscurity in accordance to their worth.
