The Blood Heresy
The Kingdom of Caldor
The Kingdom of Caldor is one of the largest kingdoms in the world.
Caldor is a mixed race kingdom that is ruled by a human royal line.
The Barbarian kingdom of Gamaic lies to its east.
Caldor is ruled by King Nidale Dorn. He is considered a kind man who lacks the sternness required to be an effective ruler. He has two sons that are identical twins. Upon their birth his advisor begged him to dash the younger one’s head upon the rocks so that there would not be a crisis of succession when they came of age, but King Dorn refused to do so. Care was taken to keep the sons separated but a maid whose advances were rejected by the king is said to have switched them. The uncertainty of who the true heir is has created a looming crisis.
