The kingdom of Temeria lies south of the river Pontar, in neighborhood to a lot of other more or less big kingdoms and the famous Brokilon Forest. One of the fiefdoms of Temeria is the dukedom of Ellander and the magical Thanedd Isle, where the Thanedd coup occurred during the Grand Conclave of Mages in 1267. Temeria is the strongest (next to Kaedwen) of the Northern Kingdoms and played a key role in the wars against Nilfgaard. One of the best known rulers was King Foltest; its capital is Vizima.
The currency of Temeria is the Oren, but in the city Gors Velen are also nobles and groats in use.
Geralt of Rivia (Polish: Geralt z Rivii) is a witcher and the protagonist of the Witcher series of books by Andrzej Sapkowski and its adaptations (including The Witcher, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and the upcoming The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt computer games). Witchers are monster hunters for hire. They possess nearly superhuman abilities and are expert swordsmen.
Andrzej Sapkowski, born 21 June 1948 in Łódź, is a Polish fantasy writer. Sapkowski studied economics, and before turning to writing, he had worked as a senior sales representative for a foreign trade company. His first short story, "The Witcher" ("Wiedźmin"), was published in Fantastyka, Poland's leading fantasy literary magazine, in 1986 and was enormously successful both with readers and critics. Sapkowski has created a series of tales based on the world of "The Witcher", comprising three collections of short stories and five novels. This cycle and his many other works have made him one of the best-known fantasy authors in Poland in the 1990s.
