The Stockwood Scrolls
Elturgard is a theocracy ruled by those who are certain they walk the path of righteousness. The paladins of this land take pride in their moral clarity and pursuit of good. Elturgard is dominated by a “second sun” that hovers eternally in the sky above the city of Elturel, making this a realm of endless daylight. Creatures of darkness cannot abide even the sight of the city. Unlike most countries, Elturgard has a state religion: Torm is revered in the temples that dot the landscape. This is not a monotheistic religion: worship of other good gods is welcomed as well.
Law and order in Elturgard is overseen by the Elturgard Paladins. The cause of Elturgard is to uphold justice and good, and the paladins who serve it are uplifted by that knowledge. Their blood is fired with light’s conviction, their minds focused with purity, and their hearts hardened with their faith. Nothing stands in their way—while they grip their sanctified blades; fear is unknown to them and reviled in others. Though not all serve Torm as their deity, all serve Elturgard.
