Khorosians

Page history last edited by Patrick Murphy 10 years, 11 months ago

 

 

The Khorosians are first-rate farmers, but not great hunters. They grow crops, making extensive use of irrigation, and practice animal husbandry. Their wool and linen are in high demand throughout the world. They domesticate both moas and brantas as mounts and beasts of burden. Though not on par with the Fengzhi, their metalworking skills are considerable.

 

The Khorosian Empire has conquered vast and disparate lands, so there is considerable variation in peoples, practices, skills and resources, depending on what part of the Empire one is in. The Empire maintains its unity due to a vast network of roads and the control exercised by the governors: those men are in charge of “advising” the local rulers and selecting new ones if the current ones are found lacking. The governors can ask for the support of the troups stationed in fortresses located at the border of the provinces. Those soldiers are never recruited in the same province as the province where they are stationed. The fortresses are also used to control trade and to tax goods crossing boundaries.

 

The Khorosians are very disciplined. Men and women have separate roles and depending on their age, an individual will have specific rights and duties. Below the Emperor God, the High Nobles are in charge of ruling the country. They all have the rank of akar (High General), and are responsible for the recruitment, training and equipment of the Imperial Legions. The High Nobles are also the most important members of the Senate. They alone can propose new laws and treaties. The number of High Nobles has changed over the centuries. Many of these high nobles are themselves powerful sorcerers, feared and loathed by the majority of the populace. A form of thought police, the Examiners, enforces their will, and these men and women operate with almost complete immunity for their actions.
