Introduction

King: Osidar Dagen

The second most populous kingdom of Ivinia, currently ruled by the Dagen of Dagenborg. Ibanvaal may be the most autocratic, and is certainly the most aggressive kingdom in the region. The Dagen tolerates no opposition from tributary clans, maintains a firm hold on revenues gleaned from his domain, particularly the towns of Harling and Pelby, and is presently engaged in a war with the Kingdom of Menglana to the west.

The present war with Menglana is the result of several factors. One is the tacit alliance of Swenway and Jarenmark that has frustrated the Dagen's dreams of southern expansion. The second is the fractious nature of Menglanan politics which has weakened that kingdom. Finally King Hlanakar III of Menglana is elderly and seen as weakening, both from within and without his kingdom. In 808, Osidar led an army through Beneta Pass to attack the Menglanan thran of Froyby. Blocking the river downstream with pilings, he besieged Froyby and was able to fight off frantic Menglanan attempts at relief. Froyby fell in 809. Osidar proceeded to rebuild the keep and man it with a large garrison. With a secure foothold west of the mountains, Osidar is expected to order an attack on Froyaheim in 811 or 812.

Dagenborg, Castle [J7]

Dagen.png

The principal seat of Osidar Dagen, king of Ibanvaal. The settlement was founded in 500 and was called Haraksenborg until 649 when it was seized by the Dagens. Masons from Eltrandor were imported to rebuild the fortress (764-770) and it now boasts a stone keep and two concentric stone walls with many towers. The fortress is located on a small rocky islet, connected to the nearby shore by a narrow, man-made causeway, often awash at high tides. Dagenborg is probably Ivinia’s strongest fortification. The following temples are present:

Since then it has been an annual tradition for kings of Ibanvaal to spend their winters in Bilun and then sail from there in the early spring to conduct a mock attack on Dagenborg. Bilun gathers tribute from Dergenborg, Elgenhus, and Rydaen.

Harling is governed by a council of local mercantile clans (effectively aldermen) under the direction of the constable of the citadel, Pravak Dagen. As long as tribute is paid on time, the Dagen leaves the town much to itself. With the hostility of the southern kingdoms, trade has declined over the last few decades. The following temples are present:

Isselsen greatly strengthened the fortifications between 735 and 737. Irlon Dagen, a warrior of some repute, is the commander of the Ibanvaalan forces in the war against Menglana and has made Froyby his temporary seat.

Population: 5,900
Dagen.png

The third largest settlement in Ivinia. Pelby was founded in 614 and was the principal settlement of the kingdom of Leripor until 734 when the entire kingdom was annexed by Ibanvaal. Isselsen Dagen strengthened the fortifications between 735 and 738. Pelby is governed by Ealarn Dagen, the younger brother of the king of Ibanvaal, aided by a council of prominent townsfolk. Pelby has a reasonably large agricultural hinterland, but its wealth is due to trade. The hostility of Swenway and Jarenmark has dampened foreign traffic and this has restricted the growth of Pelby; its population is about the same as it was fifty years ago. Pelby contains the following temples:

LOKI: Order of the V’hirahn
ODIN: Order of the Harsh Voice
THOR: Clan Barassaar
THOR: Clan Juregen

Rydaen, Thran [K7]

History

Ibanvaal was founded in 491 by Harakeldya of Haraksenborg, and soon expanded to include several large settlements at the head of Kolofa Gulf, one of Ivinia's busiest waterways. The Harakeldyas garnered most of their wealth and power from piracy. The Dagens came to power in 649 when Murki Dagen, the jarl of clan Dagen of Bilun, slew King Haaken in personal combat. Since then, the Dagens have ruled their domain with an iron hand, maintaining power largely by the strength of their fortifications and ruthless politics.
