The Unending Night
The Sun King (Orlandi Humans)
The Orlandi have long been radicals. They first left Antenora after their holy founder, Laius, lead them to a land promised him by the Sun King. Laius declared that the Sun King was the only true god, and that the gods of the Circle were no more than demons of the void, which he described as not eternal darkness but a mass of torturous fire eager to consume the world and held back only by the Sun King’s light and “true warmth.” It was that heretical fire that threatened to burn the world, not the gaze of the Sun King.
Laius and his followers were persecuted by the faithful of Wygrievia, and so he took them to the holy “overlands” far beyond the point where any human had traveled. On the western coast, just north of the the Great Desert Wall, Laius’s People landed and established the city of Orgarten. There Laius was declared the first holy ruler of the Orlandi.
They’ve jealously guarded their holy landed and begun extending over the centuries. Theirs is a warlike religion that demands conversion and sacrifice.
