When the Great Kingdom fell, so did the province of Errion. Errion became an unstable region suffering from many disputes, mainly over old fief rights. Soon Errion was no more leaving only bitter lords to govern over the now torn region.
When Errion fell, the port city of Jorakk become a lord-less fief. As a result, the local guilds saw an opportunity and formed a guild council to declare Jorakk’s independence. This didn’t boost well with the regional lords, soon the Jorakk Wars began. The guilds of Jorakk used whatever resource they had from hiring pirates & mercenaries to using bribery and assassination to persevering Jorakk independence. Soon, Jorakk won its right to be an independent city-state in the end.
Today, Jorakk is a free-port that stand on its own. Many come here to seek wealth, adventure, or a new life. Jorakk is known for the darkwood it trades and its casinos and brothels it sports. It is well known for sponsoring the Cyforrinan Gladiatorial Fighting League seasonal fights at the Ring of Valor. The Loose Goose Tavern at the docks is a popular location for any privateer and adventurer who like ale, companionship, and its hoedown sing-alongs.
