"'The kingdom of Almada'
Claimed by the Horasreich, threatened by the Novadis, this is Almada, a province kingdom of the Middle Realms. Nowhere else grow the grapes so fully and the grain so copiously, nowhere else will you find more precious horses - but also nowhere else is the populace considered so proud, rigid and feisty. To strangers the kingdom of Almada with its tulamidian touch seems like a country without worries and hardships - but century old familiy feuds and quarrels divide the province, the gentry and the populace. Magic, scholarliness and a colourful mix of people are characteristic of Punin, the oldest third largest city of the New Realm - that houses an equally dangerous net of rival interests and political factions.
Almada, the 'land of the moon' - isn't the moon said to have a connection to old magic, to change constantly and to be unsteady and erratic?"
