Baleros is the continent home to Lizardfolk, Centaurs, Dullahans, GazersSelphids, Humans and Beastkin.

Overview[]

Baleros is a massive continent. While it is mostly jungles and forests, there are also wide open plains and scenic landscapes. To Earthworlders, it bears a resemblance to the Americas continent — being a fairly solid chunk with a large southern jungle and a vaguely hammer-esque shaped north half.[1]

The Companies[]

"Baleros was a continent unique in that despite there being nations and countries and kingdoms and so on, much of the fighting was done by mercenary groups, ranging from smaller troops like the Raverian Fighters to huge Companies comprised of multiple regiments of soldiers who were almost constantly embroiled in conflict."

The companies active on Baleros are like nations unto themselves. There are countless companies who have their own cities and towns where they base themselves. They have contracts and earn income from protecting places, and they send out their own armies to fight. The big ones have influence, representatives in other nation, even entire merchant organizations that cater only to them.[2]

There are Four Great Companies who are the most influential players in Baleros, military-wise:

  • Iron Vanguard: The northernmost parts of Baleros are mainly controlled by the old and long-established Iron Vanguard Company, comprised primarily of Dullahans. They heavily fortify their territories and have a powerful armada.
  • Maelstrom's Howling: The Maelstrom’s Howling Company are holding the wide open spaces of the middle parts of Baleros, but not all of it permanently. They are comprised mostly of Centaurs, and some Lizardfolk.[1]
  • Eyes of Baleros: The Eyes of Baleros are a species company comprised mostly of Gazers, and little is known about them since they are based deep in the jungle. They don't have much land, and nobody cares to fight them.[1]
  • Forgotten Wing Company: The Forgotten Wing Company is a mixed-species company based south of Baleros. While it is very powerful, it is also considered fragile as its prowess is primarily due to their two leaders: the Three-Color Stalker and the Titan.[1] The Forgotten Wing had replaced the Jungle Tails Company (a Lizardfolk copany), but the latter are still considered powerful.[3]
