The Ari'ilden Saga
The Reign of Man
The Reign of Man is the current major human civilization in the world. The Reign is an autocratic theocracy, ruled forcefully but peacefully by the Church of the Five. It has existed in its current state for just over 1200 years, since the fall of The First Empire. The current head-of-state is Primarch Matthias III, who acts as both the head of the state and the head of the church.
The territory of the Reign is split into four Holds, with fourteen Districts split amongst them. Each Hold has a capital city and is governed by a Duarch, who acts as governor and religious leader. Districts within each Hold are further ruled by Triarchs, and individual Temples and communities are led by Tetrarchs.
