Carsi

Situated between the Lake of Strife and the Sea of Storms, this amalgamation of city-states has existed for quite some time. Mostly it is a seething cauldron of constant warfare and betrayal. Rife with assassins and flourishing bravos, this land is also a place of great wealth being home to the best sailors and merchants in the Central lands. This land is also home to some of the best mercenaries and assassins money can buy. (Think Renaissance Italy)

Carsi does not really have a capital city. As an amalgamation of city-states there is no real ruling body. There is a council that meets on a fairly regular basis but they change location to stay fair. The council’s primary job is to settle disputes and work on laws governing trade more than anything. The major cities within Carsi are: Siena, a city on the ocean that is home to the headquarters of Fortuna and is home to a great merchant fleet; Amalfi, another coastal city but this one focuses on producing some of the best individual swordsmen in the world. Home to more Bravos and fencers than anywhere else in the world, Amalfi is renowned for having a duel a day at minimum; Lodi, city on the Lake of Strife, home to an army of mercenaries that will sell their services as individuals or as units, they are highly sought after for their versatility and thoroughness; and Bari, the city to the south, a city of immense trade. Bari is home to some of the most ruthless and uncaring merchants in the world, a city of thieves and assassins where anything can be bought… Anything.
