Limn (Kingdom of)
Location: Ledge on the east-central rim of the floating continent of Alphatia between the Kerothar Mountain Range and the precipice, south of Frisland and north of Stonewall. HW
Area: 9,977 sq. mi. (25,840 sq. km.). This is the official number as decreed at the creation of the kingdom. Unofficially the sphere of influence of Limn has extended into the less-developed areas of Stoutfellow.
Population: 230,400, including Trollhattan (pop. 30,600). Again, this is the official count. Which races should be included here is a constant source of bureaucratic struggles.
Languages: Alphatian (Limn dialect), Orcish, Goblin, Sylvan.
Coinage: Alphatian Standard: crown (gp), mirror (sp), judge (cp). Limn mints no other coins, but accepts all kinds of coins and other wealth as payment.
Taxes: 15% income tax on everyone of servant status or higher. Slaves are counted as the property of the owner and the product of their labour is taxed as income for the owner. An additional fee is charged to register monster variants created through experimentation. In order to encourage the kingdom to remain a haven for monsters, they have also imposed a 5% surtax on "normal" beings (humans and demihumans) living here.
Government Type: Monarchy, member of the Alphatian Empire.
Industries: Magical experimentation (especially modification and creation of monsters). Also some mining exports such as iron and gold.
Important Figures: Drushiye (King), Mellora (Queen), Count Mzilikazi (Lord), The Dragon (Lord).
Flora and Fauna: See Alphatia.

Last Year's Events: Tension sparked between Limn and Stonewall as Stonewaller soldiers killed subjects of Limn, believing them to be "monsters," but to preserve Limn from reprisal arrangements were made to prevent escalation. A new breed of nosferatu may in future allow the once-powerful vampires of Limn to emerge from their underground crypts.
