Katar, is like a Geode. On the outside, all one can see is cold, hard stone. Yet beneath this, lies beauty. Katar's eastern border is a line of castles, walls and fortresses, left from both the Haram Wars and the Post-war buildup. Despite their age, these fortifications are still manned by the 11th,12th,13th and 14th legions, whom are dedicated to the Empire's defense in this area. Behind these walls lies a beautiful landscape, complete with rolling hills, forests and the Granite mountains as a backdrop. Farms and villages dot the plains, with the occasional small castle or tower. Katar also borders the river of eternity, providing an ideal spot for fishing and boating. This area also serves as a summer home for many Haram Nobles whom retreat here for the summer, and leave just before the onset of winter. Katar's Capital, Oruin remains the second largest city in the empire, and by far the most fortified. Built on a lone pinnacle of rock, this awe-inspiring fortress dominates the landscape. During the Three kingdoms war, the Katarians noted its defensive significance and built a fort there. This was soon populated by local peasants and serfs looking for shelter from the now raging War. After the Fall of Katar, the Haram razed the old capital and declared Oruin as the new one. Later, during the pre-war years, the Haram erected towers and walls up to the top of the rock making it the strongest fortress to be found anywhere. Oruin served as a major deterrent to its enemies in not only The Haram War, but the Imperial Wars too. Katar, despite its defensive significance remains only the second most prosperous Province, due to The Haram Desert's special significance to most of its people.
Steady, in the upper millions.
Ruled over by a provincial magistrate.
11th,12th,13th and 14th guard the eastern border, while the 15th patrols the interior.
Katar as a KingdomEdit
Katar was the second largest of the three combatants during The Three kingdoms war. Despite its medium size it was the most heavily defended, and proved a hard nutshell to crack for the early Haram Legions. Katar was known for its large upper class, a property that continues to this day. After The Battle of the Copper Plains in western Katar, the Kingdom gave up and forgot its dreams of a Katarian Empire. Its capitol was razed and moved to Oruin and the local customs were assimilated into Haram society.
