The Pirates Of Atlantis
The history of Hernicia largely parallels that of Avaria. A breakaway kingdom from what would in time become the Empire of Hazaria, much of its early history revolves around minor conflicts with Avaria (and to a lesser extent Varinia). Facing the threats of the Lemurians and the Hazarians, Hernicia chose to protect itself by petitioning the Dominion for admittance.
Like Avaria and Verinia, Hernicia has adopted many aspects of Atlantean culture in place of its original Hazarian customs. For example, among the people in general and the noble classes in particular, Atlantean names have largely replaced Hazarian ones, and even though Hazarian remains the standard language most people speak at least some Atlantean. Walking down the streets of Arnica one sees as many people wearing Atlantean-style clothing as traditional Hernician garb.
Prince Larinos exemplifies this trend to an extreme. Something of a fop, he wears only clothing imported from Atlantis, and he refuses to speak any language but Atlantean in his court. Many of his nobles have a poor opinion of him, but no one dislikes him so strongly that they’d disobey him or start a revolt.
