Adventure Path (Welcome to Awesomia)
The capital of the land, and the oldest city of the realm, Awesomia City is home to the Awesomia Heavy Cavalry, whose members are drawn from the younger sons of the aristocracy. Also (and frequently pulled from among the ranks of the Heavy Cavalry), the Knightly Order of the Crimson Cloak has its stronghold here also. The official state religion is the worship of Heironeous, although the land is lax in its religious policies, and polytheism, abounds. Any of the Lords and Ladies of the Light can be freely worshipped, and indeed many operate temples in this fine city. Likewise, many of the deities who are less invested in the battle between Light and Dark find purchase here, and may also have houses of worship here.
The capital also houses the Awesomian Academy (formerly the Academy of Awesomeness), which, in addition to standard educational curricula, also offers extensive training in the arcane arts, as well as turning out many a bard or herald.
The Universal Church of Heironeous has its seat of power in Awesomia City also, and is the site of many state occasions. Members of the Royal Family have been interred here for generations, also.
A sizeable druidic order, called the Order of Dydd, protects the wilderness, and often function as guardians of the peace between Elf- and Man-kind. In recent years, closeness has developed between this order and the aristocracy, as the late Duke of Awesometon fostered a future druid, now known as Largo Longstrider, who was raised as foster–brother to the current duke, Duke Lenton.
