Important Figures: Diamanes Thesakkrus (General of the Mivosian Army), Diocletian Merasthasius (Head of the Interior Ministry), Petrassia Amonduria (Captain of the Mivosian Cavalry Brigade)-these three people comprise the ruling triumvirate.

Flora and Fauna: The area upon which Mivosia was built sports plant and animal life typical for the region. Among the more common vegetative life that can be found here are all sorts of water plants, ranging from cattails to lily pads along the various waterways. On land, it is possible to find many species of grasses, as well as various shrubs and bushes. Nestled among the hilltops of this region are the few trees that exist in this part of the continent, most of these being cypress, mahogany, and oak trees.

Thanks to intensive farming, and relatively dense settlement patterns by local standards, there are very few wild animals to be found around Mivosia. Most of what people will see consists of chickens, the occasional cow, and a large number of sheep. Despite this, people in outlying regions have encountered giant insects, gnolls, griffons, harpies, hippogriffs, orcs, and on rare occasions purple worms.

Further reading: None.

Last Year's Events: The fires of rebellion have been burning across the countryside, though so far Mivosia has been able to quash them all. Whether Mivosia's might will be checked remains to be seen.
