Eastern Czaikow Hills, Free Province of

by micky

Area: 1904 sq. miles

Population: 4374

Ethnic Groups: Boldavian 85%, Flaem 5%, Ethengar 5%, Other 5%

Villages: Velikiye Luki (398) This good size village is approximately 32 miles east of Kursk and lies on the east-west caravan route. The village is the administrative seat of the Province and home to the Propraetor

Lyskovo (120) This village at the western end of the Province, 16 miles south of the Tower at Mariksen, is the regional seat for the western part of the Province.

Government: Propraetor appointed by the Council of Princes, in charge for seven years. Seat in Cinigiago.

Ruler: Propraetor Hosbayar Borjigin (born 962, NM, varied skill-set in admininstration and the laws of Glantri)

House: not aligned to any house. Very close ties to House Krinagar

Territory: The hills roughly south of Mariksen running east to the border with the Heldannic Territories. Bordered on the north by the moutains of the Free Province of the Three Fires and the various dominions; and on the south by Ethengar.

Food: Surplus. Generally sold to the nearby dominions.

Trails: The east-west caravan trail cuts right through the heart of the Free Province except for a short section where it runs through the south of Kursk.

Economics: The Free Territories are agriculturally driven. Potatoes, cabbage, rye, barley, and wheat are the primary staple foods that the Czaikow Hills provide. Hogs are also raised here. Surplus is usually taken to market in the three nearby dominions of Vladimirov, Mariksen, and Kursk as well as to Cinigiano in the Three Fires Territory.

Notable sites/people: The village of Velikiye Luki is the home of the Propaetor and the cultural center of the Eastern Cziakow Hills. The town has undergone rapid growth in the last few years after Pereslavl-Zalessky, the former seat of of the Free Territory was annexed into what would become the Barony of Kursk. The town is notable for the stout wooden palisade surrounding the town. Over the last two years no fewer than three major raids have targeted Velikiye Luki from Ethengar. In times of need the town can raise a defense force of 200 archers and swordsmen, plus a couple of mages to help protect the town. The Propraetor has also been authorized by the Council of Princes to follow Propraetor Marcus Furius Camillus's example and raise a banner of troops, to be paid out of the taxes that the Free Territory raises to be a full time rapid response force within the Territory. The force is still being raised then will need to be trained so it shouldn't be available for another couple of months. The Propraetor of the territory, Hosbayar Borjigin, is a well respected veteran of many assignment for the Council of Princes and has good relations with all but those who can't get past his Ethengarian ethnicity. He has an excellent relationship with the Baron of Mariksen, Sergei Wutyla, and though he understands the dangerious game he is playing and just who his foe is, he offers him moral support and even some timely advice. It was his advice that led Sergei to invite settlers from Bramya to come to Mariksen. Borjigin, though completely loyal to Glantri and the Council, knows that Sergei has loyal Ethengarian bodyguards and there is traffic and messages that pass between Sergei and Ethengar. If any are caught and brought to him for 'disposal', they are told to make their loyalty to the Baron known to the Propraetor, thus he makes sure that they are passed to Sergei for 'disposal' instead of doing it himself. The Propraetor otherwise is as harsh and merciless on unauthorized Ethengarians that cross the border as anyone.
