The current ruler of Arebis is the progressive Lord Hironaga Atsuda. Both a wise king and powerful sorcerer, he claims ancestry to the Tsuchi tribe of old. He is responsible for the recent Arebisian reforms, most notably the establishment of trade and the forging of foreign alliances – A trend that has stirred much controversy amongst the Reijin nobility at large.
Society and CultureEdit
The people of Arebis are typically very forward-thinking. Intelligence, wit and cunning are all very highly valued, with the traditional Reijin morals of honour and preservation taking a secondary role. Arebisians are taught to be ambitious and flexible - Change can come at any moment, and one must be ready to step up and face it head-on.
Arebis at WarEdit
The Arebisians aren't afraid to call on all their resources when it comes to doing battle, including their alliances with other races. Sanhedrin skirmishers harrass the enemy's flank, Oni warmages and shock troopers smash through enemy lines and the sound of Goblin cannons rings out across the battlefield.
War Mammoths are sometimes used as mobile war platforms, keeping spellcasters and anti-personnel weapons safe up high above the fray. However, these are quite rare as mammoths are few in number.
