The nation of Calymstar is a safe haven for the good and just people of Erdael. Heavily armored guards patrol the borders and keep out any who would seek to cause harm to the peaceful citizenry, and a powerful navy keeps its shores safe. All sentient beings who renounce evil actions and intention are welcome in Calymstar.
Calymstar is almost always at war with the Ahriman Empire, but the combined military might of the two countries keeps open warfare to a minimum. The war has never gone completely cold because skirmishes and raids by adventuring parties keep the hostilities at a warm simmer.
Calymstar marched an army to the borders of The Ahriman Empire as recently as 20 years ago, but the sudden assassination of King Tallis and the emergency regency of First Knight Kalys Farvardin sent Calymstar into a hasty retreat before the battle started.
