The oldest settled country of Lyssia and, in more recent times the seat of power for the King of the Seven Realms. Westland has always profited from its geography at the top of the Cold Coast, controlling what is traded by its landlocked neighbors. In more prosperous times it provided the main force of the Lyssian navy, a force now much reduced since Leopold took the throne. The capital city Highcliff is home to the King and the heart of government. With the Seven Realms feeling the strain of the King's constant taxes and military demands, Leopold's court is a smaller affair, consisting principally of the King and his advisors, the Wererats of Vermire, who pass laws with little or no opposition.
