Mollarok (Valgora Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
|If one finds himself looking to retreat within himself, there is no better place.
|—Sir TwoTone Trollbane, Tips for Travelers
The Former Monastic State of the Holy Mollarok, now simply Mollarok, was the last sovereign state to join the Allied States of Ghikva (disregarding the Fritzstland which seceded from the already-allied State of Quaristan). A place of extreme religious faith, the state joined the Allied States only as its small secular population had no real government. The country was named in honor of their beloved god, Mollarok.
Major Settlements & Regions
The twenty-seven main monasteries of the land are still Autonomous in all but name, while the small secular population (less than 10 percent of the population) has the representation in the Allied Parliament.
Travelers through the state will find it hard to find a room overnight outside the small secular capital village of Rektavon, and will spend alot of time in the wilderness. Remote monasteries are beautiful to behold, but most require express permission to enter. The land is beautiful and oddly peaceful. A small band of Warrior-Monks exist: the Order of Mollarok the Most Holy, who protect the monastaries with their lives at all cost, leaving those monks and other holy individuals inside free to worship.
Civilian halfing Alezander Droven is the official head of state and represents Mollarok in all Ghikvan dealings, but he unofficially answers to the head monk of the Trugvast Monastary, which is currently the dwarven Brother Razheen.
The small secular population do have a Giknifal team, the aptly-named Mollarokian Monks, but have never faired too well in the standings.
