The city-state of Kyre is located in at the confluence of the river Bregma and the river Stillwine in central Lotan surrounded by a countryside of forests and rich farmlands. As such, most Kyrians make their living through farming or trapping. Kyrians are tough, hardworking, but stubborn folk. Magic is outlawed in the state of Kyre because most Kyrians distrust things that are not wrought with sweat and blood.
There has been a recent influx of people into the city of Kyre proper as the fringe communities of Kyre have been waylaid by Orcs. In the past, the mighty Kyrian army has been able to keep Orcs and other invaders at bay, but this time the Orcs seem to be gathering on several fronts and the army cannot protect the entire countryside at once.
