In the vein of Kings, imagine that the realms of Middle-Earth exist along side Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Imagine a failed monarchy from hundreds of years ago and a country still searching for its king, but the people losing hope and turning to the line of Stewards who have been heading the government faithfully in the king's absence. A dark power of a neighboring land looming in a cold war that has lasted longer than anyone alive could remember. An alliance with the rural, poorer country to the north, where many people still depend on animal transportation to inhabit the rugged places, and a great history of honor, duty and loyalty. The names of these people survive on history and culture, and that is why they seem foreign to our lips.
