The World of Antekagen
Vaterion is a settlement and major religious center situated on the Eye of the Father, a large island to the south of Antekagen. It was founded in 88 TY by Uris II, the abdicating emperor of the Tenteri Empire.
The city is the headquarters of the Sect of the Eight Gods, and is home to the largest temple on the planet, the Great Temple of Haolf. With such religious importance comes a fairly autocratic system of rule. The theocratic oligarchy ruling the city, known as the Council of Divines, is made up of the heads of each facet of the Sect of the Eight Gods. The more important the deity is, the more power their representative has on the Council. For instance, Haolf’s representative is more influential than that of Feytalis.
This system maintains order in this city, something that is vital in such a magically crowded place. Vaterion is home to the highest concentration of magic users in the region of Antekagen, and, as such, requires a large degree of regulation on magic. The city guard from Vaterion, the Silver Watch, is a well-funded entity that serves many purposes. It enforces the restrictions on magic use in the city as well as the law, guards the coasts of the island, and mans the fortress-harbor of Haolf’s Crossing.
