The Elderheim Chronicles
Hermund City is the capital city of Hermund State. The ruler, Graltin Trannyth of Hermund, is a fair man, who values honour and strength. As he is heirless, he has adopted a unique system to establish a ruler after his death – one fitting for Arbaster. The original heir was sent from Harbengard, out of the best of the state generals, but the Trannyth implemented this simple rule: If the heir is killed in fair combat, the victor becomes the heir. This led to a series of duels and battles, with the heir changing many times. However, the last known heir was killed in a street fight he initiated, and the victor disappeared without a trace…
Recently, order has been less strict in Hermund, with the lack of heir one everyone’s mind. Riots occasionally take place, and the city guard is split between finding the heir to the city and keeping the peace.
