Western Czaikow Hills, Free Province of

by micky

Area: 2184 sq. miles

Population: 8858

Ethnic Groups: Boldavian 65%, Flaem 30%, Other 5%

Towns/Villages: Arsenyev (1476) Located approximately 24 miles southwest of the Tower of Palatinsk. This walled town is heavily fortified with gates, dry moat, and towers. It is the administrative center of the Free Territory but also a secondary defensive point in the defense of Boldavia and Glantri in case of invasion.

There are numerous small village throughout the rural Territory. Only the eastern hills, between Palatinsk, Vladimirov and Ethengar, are thought to be borderlands in this area which has been settled for hundreds of years.

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

Ruler: Propraetor Anatoly Borzakovsky (Appointed in 1009, M19, Fire Elementalist 3rd Circle, AL-Neutral, strong background as a military wizard)

The Free Territory is authorized by the Council to maintain a defense force independent of the Grand Army, though it often trains with and works in conjunction with Morphail's Divisions. These Banners were not demobilized with the rest of Glantri's Reserve forces in 1010. In times of mobilization it would serve as the basis for the Glantrian 21st Reserve Division and be it's 3rd and 4th Banners, as they were during the Great War. The cost of maintaining and paying the force is paid by the Free Dominion. Funded by a sales tax on Vodka.

The 'Raven' Banner - 240 heavy Foot (F1) with long swords, daggers shields and chain mail; 8 sergeants (F2); 2 Lieutenants (F4) 1 captain (F5)

The 'Tornado' Banner - 240 mounted infantries (F1) with bows, long swords, daggers, banded armor; 8 sergeants (F2); 2 Lieutenants (F4) 1 captain (F5) riding normal horses.

House: not aligned to any house. Very close ties to House of Igorov, and Linden

Territory: The hills east of Boldavia running east to a point in the Czaikow Hills to the south of Vladimirov . Bordered on the north by the mountains of the Eastern Wendarian Free Province and by the various dominions; and on the south by Ethengar and the river Dol-Anur.

Food: Surplus. Generally sold to the nearby dominions, and exported to other parts of Glantri

Trails: The main east-west caravan trail runs through the Czaikow Hill's, through Palatinsk, into Arsenyev then on to Rymskigrad. Other fair trails radiate from Arsenyev. One goes to Ft. Tchernovodsk, another up towards Kutchevski, and another towards Pavlova.

Economics: The Free Territory of the Western Czaikow Hills is one of the most prominent, important, and prestigious assignments in the Glantrian government. Not only it is an important military assignment, Propaetors have traditionally been military-minded as well as being able administrators, but it is an economically vital and vibrant area. The area has a high concentration of salt mines. The mines are primarily worked by convicts and slaves, the slaves usually being Ethengarians who were caught on the wrong side of the border. The Province provides a bounty of livestock, goats and cattle primarily. The main product of the Western Hills are agricultural. Potatoes, wheat, barley, cabbage, carrots, and rye are just the most important of many different products that come from the productive hills east of Boldavia. The forests of the northern hills provide a good supply of lumber and surplus lumber is often sent through the Scotch Breech to Klantyre.

Notable sites/people: Propraetor Anatoly Borzakovsky is of mixed Traladoran/Flaemish ancestory. Retired from the Glantrian Army for some 15 years he was retained as a 'problem solver' by the Council of Princes where his talent as an administrator was noticed. He has previously served as the Propraetor of the Fort Nordling Free Province before being appointed as a Reserve Division Commander during the Great War. With the seemingly unstoppable advance of the Alphatians and the prospects of a showdown on Glantrian soil approaching he was assigned to the Western Czaikow Hills to help Morphail defend a probable approach into Glantri by the Alphatians. Since the Great War and the demobilization of Glantri's Reserves the Propraetor has shifted his focus to administering the Province. It has been fairly easy duty for him. The Province is relatively peaceful and the crime rate is low compared to the rest of Glantri. Much of that can be attributed to the harsh punishment for crime in the Province. There are no jails or penitentiaries in this region. Convicts are sentenced to work off their sentences in the salt mines, which can be akin to a death sentence. The latest figures from the Commission of Public Safety in Glantri City estimate 1 of every 12 Salt mine workers dies in an average year. Though administering the Province has been his primary duty, the Propraetor never loses sight of the fact that their traditional blood enemy is no more than a day and half's hard ride from Arsenyev and might strike at any time. Regular emergency drills among the towns able body citizens happen on the first Saturday of each month. Keeping the outlying militias active and trained in the rest of the rural Territories has also been an policy the Propraetor has made sure to have enforced. Borzakovsky has seen one thing in his Territory that concerns him. An apparent grass-roots movement against Morphail. Posters have been found posted on walls in Arsenyev trying to stir people up and turn them against Morphail. Borzakovsky has no real personal feelings on the matter but even if he did, his hands are tied anyway. Not long after this campaign started he received an official dispatch from Morphail telling him that any of these 'terrorists' that were caught were to be sent directly to Morphail for 'interrogation'.
