Shadows of Vesperton
Firststand is a Glissian province, covering the land from the western shore of Keql Hoppa to the Darud Mountains in the east. Its northern border is currently undefined, but is expected to be approximately 40 miles north of Regenesis. The Glissian government has drawn Firststand’s southern border just north of Old Vesperton, and hopes that the Kenasians will respect this as the border between the two nations.
Regenesis is Firststand’s only major city, though other, smaller villages have begun to be founded, particularly along the southern border as a display of Glissia’s resolve. Regenesis is the capital of the province, as well as the capital of Glissia. As a part of Glissia, Firststand’s head of state is King Flak. The king governed the province of Regenesis personally, on an interim basis, until it was reshaped into Firststand (see below). With Glissia expanding, a permanent provincial governor’s post was created, and Mulheron Selkirk was appointed to the position.
Firststand was originally called Regenesis, but the name was changed when the border between Glissia and Kenasia was defined and the province absorbed the lands outside of Daruddelve, to avoid confusion when referring to the city of Regenesis. It is also hoped the the bold new name will project an image of strength to Kenasia.
