[Camelot is a Lawful Good landed domain with 3 provinces]
After the death of Arthur Pendragon, Gwenevere ruled the kingdom of Camelot in the name of Pendragon with Gawain at her side as her king consort.
Merlin took to wandering and has been seen from time to time after Arthurs death, but the active role he took during the young princes rise to power seems to be over.
The lands prospered with no great enemies and when Gwenevere died 24 years later, her son Glendall took the throne and named himself Glendall Pendragon King of Camelot.
Three years ago an usurper, Grendall the Bastard, claiming to be the son of Morgana Le Fay and as such the true heir of Uther Pendragon surfaced and demanded the throne.
As he was cast out of Camelot, winds of foul magic blew through the five kingdoms and sparked a rebellion against King Glendall's rightful rule.
Young Glendall Pendragon fought valiantly for the defense of Camelot and secured a peace treaty with the neighboring realms ensuring that Grendall the Bastard would not be granted a Noble title within any of the five kingdoms, but most of Camelot's former influence over the kingdoms were bartered away to secure that deal.
The kingdoms that signed the treaty were: Camelot, Mercia, Caerleon, Gawant and Alined. But now only a year after the treaty has been signed there are reports of Grendal the bastards growing support in Mercia and Alined. And worse than that, Glendall has lost some of his support to Grendall the Bastard inside the borders of Camelot.
Time has come to hunt down this usurper, destroy his false and dangerous religion and secure the throne of Camelot.
[Caerleon is a Lawful Neutral single province landed domain]
Caerleon has been ruled by the Carleon family for generations. The current ruler Queen Jessica Carleon has so far taken a stance of neutrality in the conflict of the throne in Camelot.
The historical stability and security of Caerleon is largely due to their relatively close ties to Camelot, in order to keep her borders safe the Queen will have to choose side in the conflict sooner or later.

Only in the last year has that rebellion been crushed. Highpriest Grendall le Fay of the old religion has thrown in the support of his gods to secure the Queens rightful rule.

North Hold [North Hold is a Lawful Neutral 5 province landed domain]
The Dwarfs of the north keep mostly to themselves. They are rumored to have a king, but none outside the Dwarven realms have seen him. The dwarfs pray to their strange God of craftsmanship and worship their trinkets and profit they make selling them.
The humans to the south is a warring bunch that occasionally try to pillage. But to call it more than a nuisance would be to give the humans more credit than they deserve.
At any rate, no attack has gone by without the dwarf king sending a regiment of fierce looking warriors and a stout envoy, asking and receiving fair compensation for the aggression.
But with the new alliances forming south of North Hold, the Dwarven King may have to rethink his current strategy.
[Temple of the One God is a lawful good temple spanning several realms]
The Temple of the One God is a relatively new religion. It draws its roots back to a temple praying to a God who set rules for its followers to complex for mere mortals to follow, and responded with wrath and judgement if they strayed from the dogma of the temple. In the Temple of the One God, the wrath of God is reserved to enemies of the faith, and sinners beyond repent. Forgiveness, absolution and the unconditional love of their God is only a few coins away for the followers who repent their lesser sins.
The clergy feels strongly for the souls of their followers and do their very best to aid those who repent, but can't afford the standard fees for absolution. But the temple need gold to fund the conversion of the heathens of Albion, so the temple continually try to extract exactly what people can spare, but no more.
[The Old Religion is a True Neutral temple/source network spanning several realms]
The Old Religion is the Druidic worship of nature in all of its facets. Nature can be soft, nature can be brutal, nature can be warped to serve your desires, but it has a cost. Nature deserves respect and worship.
Due to the inherent link between the lands and magic, magic is a part of nature, and magic is a tool of worship.
Druidic temples use Temple Holdings to cast Primordial realm magic, and they use sources to cast Arcane magic.
