Kutchevski, Barony of

by micky Area: 392 square miles

Population: 595

Villages: Kutchevski (119) The main settlement, and population center of the Barony is in the forested hills in the southwest part of the Barony.

Ethnic groups: Boldavian 94%, Flaem 5%, Others 1%.

Languages: Traladaran.

Ruler: Baron Piotr-Grygory Timenko

House: Igorov

Military: The Baron maintains no standing military forces. He employees a standard complement of sheriffs and magistrates to keep law and order within the Barony.

Food: deficiency

Trails: The forest trail passes through the Barony running between the Lawensa Depession up in the Wendarian Ranges and Rymskigrad

Economics: Kutchevski is among the most wretched dominions in Glantri. Two large salt mines provide the economic basis of the dominion. Salt mining by it's nature is one of the more dangerous occupations in existence so any and all convicts are sent to work off their sentences in the mines. The heavy price of punishment has proven a major deterrent to crime so the local population is offered decent wages to take their chances in the mines and supplement the workforce there. That, plus occasional run-ins with undead especially vampires, gives the typical Kutchevskian you might meet in a tavern, a subdued, insular, fatalistic demeanor, even more than the typical Boldavian. Needless to say the Barony of Kutchevski has received the lowest tourism rating from the Glantrian branch of AAA 125 years running haha.

History:

Barons of Kutchevski

Alexandru Timenko 829-866
Vlaicu Timenko 866-883
Dan Timenko 883-918
Mihail Timenko 918-931
Vlad Timenko 931-976
Piotr-Grigori Timenko 976-

Kutchevski is one of the original dominions of Glantri formed the same year that Lord Glantri founded the Republic of Glantri. The original baron was a minor noble whose family had kept a hereditary position as Commanders of the Guard to the Boldavian Prince. Lord Alexandru was rewarded for his brilliant leadership during the Forty Years War with a Barony in the new Republic. The family has held the Barony in the family since then, never once trying to move to a different dominion during Awards Festivals when higher noble titles came vacant. The history of the dominion reflects the stability of the House of Timenko. No major events have really ever touched the Barony. Only in the Great War did anything other than the cycle of natural (and unnatural) death touch the Barony. Summoned monsters brought to Glantri by Alphatian terrorist squads did find their way to Kutchevski, the local population put up little resistance and the Barony had to be cleaned by the roving hunter-killer squads of Glantrian adventurers commissioned by the Council of Princes. All through the war, life never changed for the people of Kutchevski. They packed their lunches and made their way to the mines and then tried to make it home as quickly as they could before the sun set completely. As their fathers had.. their grandfathers had. After the war, life continued on as normal for the Barony. A never ending search for manpower to exploit the mines. To replace those that survived their sentences.. and to replace those that did not.

Notable sites: One of the only noteable sites in the Barony of the manor of the Baron. The Baron is quite possibly the most noted sage on Vampires and his manor is said to be a treasure trove of Vampiric Lore. Visitors are by appointment only though, and at night when few wish to be outdoors so visitors are a rare occurance.

Personalities: Baron Piotr-Grygory Timenko (born 950, Necromancer of the 2nd Circle) (OD&D: Mage 9th, Al C)

A few wizards of the Great Council appeared over the skies of the Barony during the last days of the war, tossing off a fw spells, and seeing nothing really much to destroy, they hightailed it to find a better target. All through the war, life never changed for the people of Kutchevski. They packed their lunches and made their way to the mines and then tried to make it home as quickly as they could before the sun set completely. As their fathers had.. their grandfathers had.
