The Pirates Of Atlantis
The southernmost land of Pelasgar, Therek ranges from relatively cool uplands near the Sharakkian Mountains to swelteringly hot lowlands in the south. Uplanders are generally miners and herdsmen, midlanders and lowlanders farmers or fishermen.
Although it fell to Atlantis quickly millennia ago, Therek has been something of a “problem child” within the Dominion ever since. The Thereks have long accepted most of the dictates of the Atlan, but have stubbornly refused to give up their own gods — Hranos the sky-god and Hagari the earth goddess — in favor of the Atlantean pantheon. In public the Thereks pay lip service to Atlantis’s gods, but in private many of them still perform ceremonies in honor of Hranos and Hagari. Periodically the Atlanteans root out a nest of these “pagans” and have them publicly executed, but this seems to have little effect.
The current prince, Emanngol, is an unpopular ruler. The Atlanteans put him on the throne over a decade ago when they discovered that the former prince was a Hranos-worshipper and killed him by slow torture. The people consider Prince Emanngol a puppet of Atlan’elos and a pathetic bootlicker, and obey him only because they have to.
King Euaemon is keeping a close eye on the situation and would have no qualms about replacing the Prince if a more suitable candidate whose loyalty could be assured came along.
