Herid is an independent kingdom located on the Coast of Bones. The city itself has a population near 50,000, with an additional 5,000 people inhabiting the villages and hamlets of the surrounding countryside. It is the only independent kingdom located on the continent, all others are currently under the rule of the Reynosan Empire.
The current king of Herid is Vaughn Baines. His prime minister, Jalil, is the highest ranking noble in the city.
The city was founded in the year 247 of the Ysmurian calendar by Cyrus Baines the Embermage. It has stood unconquered for the two hundred and twelve years following the founding, protected by the magical might of its royal family. In the years following the rise of the Reynosan Empire, Herid is the last independent city on the continent, and in the time of Garran, Vaughn's father, directly caused the city of Boellum to fall to the Empire as well.
