With Malice Aforethought
Keorne is a very strong, orderly kingdom within Arramea. The rule of law is respected and punishments for breaking it can be harsh. Perhaps because of its border with Khaddack, Keorne has a large, disciplined standing army. This is complemented by compulsory military service, which is required of all citizens of Keorne.
In order to help ensure rapid deployment of troops to the border regions, great roads have been cut throughout the country, connected all major cities and military bases.
