One of the three nations of the Mysterious North, Morlan is the most closed of the three. What little is known of the Morlanese is that they were once called the Three Kingdoms until a dictator conquered all three and established his iron rule over the kingdoms, that there is a slight integration of races with orcs, goblins, and kobolds present, and that their army may be the most disciplined in the world. The Morlanese merchants seem cold and logical, and there are few expatriates in the world.
Practically nothing is known of Morlanese history beyond the existence of the Three Kingdoms and the iron control of the nation today. It is rumored that the current dictator has either destroyed or altered all evidence of historical accounts before the dictatorial regime, though rumors of an underground movement protecting the last historical writings exist.
