Talgar

Talgar is a region at the foot of the Dragon Mountains, bordered to the east by Creyden and Malleore. The former Kingdom, currently a margraviate of Kovir and Poviss. It has been a homeland to several members of the House of Thyssen since Godamba Thaess'en was knighted by its contemporaneous King.

Due to the strong local position of the House's branches, Talgar became a shelter to young Esterad Thyssen and a large number of exiles still loyal to him after the Secession of Poviss and the following events which led to the collapse of the Kingdom. The country was ruled then by Lady Bernika who took the power after escape from a mage tower in which she was imprisoned due to the suspicions of being afflicted with the curse of the Black Sun. Her reign was rather strict - rumour has it that the most seen part of the Talgarian landscape were the gallows. [1] Zuleyka, young lady whom Esterad married in the exile, could be presumably Bernika's relative.

Talgar coat of arms

This particular coat of arms was inspired by the work of our resident heraldry and Witcher expert Mboro.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It is jokingly said that the winter there lasts from September to May, the other seasons include spring and fall, and that summer begins on the first Tuesday after the August new moon ending the following Wednesday morning.
