The Free Kingdoms are a collection of small cities each ruled by a Baron who controls as much territory has he can hold. They are loosely governed by a counsel that meets once a year with representatives from each Barony.
People from the Free Kingdoms are pale skinned, generally with blond or light brown hair. Society in the Free Kingdoms is semi-feudal, with peasants owing loyalty to their particular Baron. They generally not owning the land on which they farm.
Magic is rare and distrusted in the Free Kingdoms, though most Baron’s keep some form of Court Sorcerer.
