The Doomsday Clock
Urgolia, one half of the split nation, is one of two of the mightiest nation of humans in the north and perhaps the world. Nearly 700 years ago war broke out between Urgolia and its sister nation Hagaard. The result of the war was the splitting of the nation and while there was extreme tensions between the two nations for centuries, things are peaceful between the two great nations today.
Urgolia is the capital of the nation and the mightiest city in the world. There use to be several cities this area that lined the Lake Urgolia and the surrounding rivers but over the centuries those cities have banded together to become one large city.
Urgolia was once an elven city but when the elves left they left it to the humans. While some ancient elven architecture can still be found in the great city and the surrounding cities, much of it has vanished either from age or buildings being built over it.
Dereby is home to a small nation of dwarves. During the Urgolia civil war the dwarves proved very useful to the people of Urgolia and have since long been friendly to Urgolia.
