The Ivian Theocracy

The Ivian Theocracy is the fortress of Heaven in the lands of Asperia. Ivians are holy and faithful people with an unmatched desire to perform noble deeds. The angels of the Divine Order themselves descend from their distant realm into the Plains of Divinity, giving guidance to Ivians in their never-ending quest to bring light and order into the world. Their task has never been heavier than now.

With so much justice waiting to be delivered, Ivia has to sustain an extremely large army. It succeeds by maintaining strict discipline and firm faith. Led by the Holy Amendment and the Knights Circle, the soldiers of Ivia are always ready to stand against the forces of evil.

Points of Interest


Ivia, the capital city, is the heart of the Theocracy. This is the place of the most important political, religious and cultural affairs. The most prominent place in Ivia is the famous Cathedral of the Holy Child. It was built after the legendary Isiah made his prophecy about the coming of the Holy Child two centuries ago. It is a place where prayer doesn’t stop, not even for a minute. There are countless other temples around the city. The most zealous Ivians watch over their altars day and night to make sure constant blessings fall upon their brothers and sisters alike.

Triangelica City

Triangelica City is the biggest Ivian port and the second Ivian city by size. It is named after the Triangelica – a group of three angel chambers built on the top of an impressive command tower. It is believed that on the day when all three chambers are occupied at the same time, a heavenly power yet unseen will be unleashed by the angels of the Divine Order. This power will be the ultimate weapon of the Theocracy in the war against the atrocities of the Abyss. So far, only two of the chambers have been occupied by angels at the same time. Speculations go that the Holy Child himself may be the third tenant of the Triangelica.

Godspeed Fort

The most precious possession of an Ivian after his firm believe in Heaven is his horse. The Godspeed Fort is a huge facility where most of the Ivian livestock is bred and trained. The nurslings of the Godspeed aviary are the main communication tool of the Ivian army and provide aerial advantage in battle. Except horses, mighty griffins, rare pegassi, war bears and lions are also taken good care of inside the fort – all of them to aid the heavenly cause. The Godspeed Fort is truly the most magnificent military complex in Asperia.

Dwarven Cloister

The dwarves most committed to the Order took voluntary exile in the rocky region of Barda, seeking to train and strengthen their faith. Isolated from the world’s affairs, the dwarven monks created true miracles of stone built in the rough surroundings. Their cloister is a proof that every environment can be tamed by strong will and righteous intention. When the Theocracy is in need, it often calls the devoted dwarven brothers for help. Well known for their merry attitude, mighty hands, and humble ambitions, they never refuse.


The Divine Order – the host of angels who counsel Ivia. For the most part, they reside in the heavens, only descending to the cities in times of great need, or alternatively making their word known to the high priests of the Holy Amendment.

The Holy Amendment – the body of priests who listen to the will of Heaven and wisely execute political and spiritual oversight upon the people of the Theocracy.

The Knights Circle – the high council of knights is comprised mainly of important and noble men. They are the generals who lead the armies in battle, following the decisions and command of The Holy Amendment.

The Steel Host – the army composed of those who aren’t of noble birth. The Steel Host is made up of common fighters who want to help and make a difference. They are undoubtedly the backbone of the Ivian military force.

The Governing Councils – the local administrations of keeps and cities, dealing with non-combat activities. The councils are comprised of artisans, merchants, farmers, etc. They are always ready to be called to arms when the Theocracy needs them.
