The Dominion of Praetoria, commonly as the Dominion or simply Praetoria, is an empire in the northwestern corner of Norn. It was founded by the crusader Hod after the duchy of Augusty seceded from the Kingdom of Grandévere. The Dominion is composed of four semi-dependent principalities that answer to King Imurka from the capital of Augusty.
Praetoria’s south is seeded with trees from the mystic forest kingdom of Ardennes. Though the southern villages are constantly prepared for an orcish invasion from Ardennes, none have set foot on Praetorian soil. Most of the country is made up of dry prairie and open oak savannas with intermittent regions of sparse forests and shrubland. Temperatures drop rapidly in the north, and snowfall is common at all times of the year. Few settlements have been made there, but there are reports of tribes of indigenous peoples living on the islands in the frigid northern seas.
