Kingdom of the Twelve Barrows
A human city-state near the western coast of The Westlands. The Kingdom of the Twelve Barrows is by far the largest and oldest human settlement left on Ur. Before The Great Disaster, the Barrows was an isolated outpost of humanity in the Goblin Kingdoms, but afterward it was the only human land not destroyed by the Wild Storm.
Today, the Kingdom of the Twelve Barrows consists of a large castle and fortress, a small township immediately outside of the fortress walls, scattered farms, and the barrows themselves, some of which are well-maintained holy sites — but some of which are nothing more than abandoned tombs.
The Barrows and the goblin Papacy exist in an uneasy neutrality, with the Pope refusing to acknowledge the Barrows’ right to exist, but at the same time not ordering their destruction.
The Kingdom of the Twelve Barrows is the home to an order of paladins that serves the Risen King.
