Hulder Me Close
In six of the seven Principalities of Verdien, religion and politics war for prominence. The more philosophical sum up this conflict as the cost of a soul weighed against the cost of power. In the seventh, the Free City of the Hulder, they only worry about one thing: the cost of doing business.
The Hulder is a thriving city of commerce and intrigue. Humans and Homunculi, stitched-together flesh golems that (mostly) serve the humans, run the city. Everything can be had for a price, as long as you are willing to play ball with the Guilds that run the town, or daring enough to defy them. Loyalty is only worth as much as the silver in your hand, and if you aren’t hustling, then you are falling behind. The Redwood Throne, the Church, is looking for a way to horn in on the action, and the rest of the nation looks on their freedom with jealousy.
