The Crystal Kings
The second largest of the three countries in Elianor, Pontia is sandwiched between Ollehir and Sampan. It is the only country that has a majority that follows The Inozavitae, and the only country whose government officially recognizes the old religion. The Golden Tree is believed to be in The Wood of Ativ in Pontia. This often leads to alliances forming between its two enemies over their shared religion. Pontia has a weak economy, due to their constant batterings by their neighbors, though their own natural barriers keep them from being taken over.
Pontians are generally kind and religious. They have learned humility after centuries of bullying from their neighbors and are usually welcoming of any newcomers that might be of use in war.
Leaders here are chosen from the church by private elections held by high ranking priests. The current Magnate is Helnen Rendig. He is a kind man of old age who seems to be ending his term of service. The country is in doubt about who the next Magnate might be.
