|Town of Bellemare|
The town was founded by the Starlit Scholars as a base of operations in order to research the mysteries of the world around them, including the Runes, Ruins, and Creatures that dot the land. Bellemare is currently a small village settled along the river, holding several houses, a tavern, and the main hall.
The settlement is filled with several races and languages, serving as a hub for the many different cultures to come and spread their intelligence and education. The Town of Bellemare prides itself on knowledge and education above all else, maintaining a refined atmosphere while still holding onto the pleasant feeling of a friendly village. People are often seen coming to and from Bellemare in order to spread their findings or settle down in a peaceful place, free of war and strife.
The council behind Bellemare, led by the founder, Alexia L'rhia, is set in place to make decisions that benefit the citizens of the town. This council of Scholars grants funding to researchers, helps them publish their findings and encourages any person of any race or age to settle in the city in order to be educated. Whether this is in the mystic arts or simply reading and writing, all information filters in and out of Bellemare.
The standing army of the town of Bellemare is known as the Legion of the White Owl.
Legionnaires are expected to be willing to learn many forms of combat, and listen to orders. They should be prepared to explore the world outside of their comfort zones, and willing to forge a bond of brotherhood and friendship with their brothers-in-arms. Men and women with, and without, military experience are welcomed to join to learn any form of martial combat that they wish as training will be provided to all soldiers.
This force itself is not one intended to create or start wars with kingdoms and nations, it’s only goal is to defend and serve Bellemare from dangers of all sorts, keeping the city and the citizens safe from destruction.
The owl stands for wisdom, regal silence, and fierce intelligence. Owls are great thinkers; they prefer to plan their strategies out instead of using brute force.
