The Sword Coast gets its name from the white cliffs that rose up sharply for hundreds of miles along the coastline. Located on the northern shores of the continent of Møn, the Sword Coast is the largest province of the Tethyrian Empire. Most notably home to the city of Rielle, the majority of the Sword Coast consists of small mining encampments separated by large swathes of untamed wilderness.
Government & Politics
The Duke of the Sword Coast, Ragnar Lodbrok, as well as High Lord Tatianus Valain both rule from the recently reconstructed palace district in Rielle. The Duke of the Sword Coast governs all lands of the Sword Coast, including the city of Rielle.
It has long remained that the second in line to the position of High Lord becomes Lord of the Sword Coast. Although in the case of the present High Lord’s reign, he has acted as both due to the premature death of the late Duke. The sickly High Lord Tatianus Valain has been in power for over 50 years, since before the Tethyrian Civil War. But, his impatient heir-apparent, Travar Valain, takes more and more power from his sickly father with each passing day.
Geography & Climate
The Sword Coast is located on the upper portion of the Orien Peninsula, the stretch of land that shoots off the northeastern corner of Møn into the Cerulean Sea. A consistently chilly climate, the Sword Coast can be a daunting place for those who are unaccustomed. However, the tough winters are balanced out by favorable summers. Moving inland from the northern shore, the craggy cliffs quickly give way to the dense forests of Blackwood.
