The High Kingdom Of Nometra ("No-meet-tra") was formed by the leader, Cloelius I, in the 172 First Era.


Before the establishment of the High Kingdom of Nometra, the region was divided into 18 prominent clans and 25 minor clans that often warred with each other. The Ardic Clan managed to become the dominant powerhouse in the region since 154 FE, which played a vital role in convincing the other clans to come and meet in Nometra for the Nometra meeting


The establishment of the High Kingdom of Nometra was after the Nometra meeting, where various large clans came together thanks to the efforts of Cloelius Cyrillus of the Ardic Clan. All clans that attended the Nometra meeting swore fealty to the Ardic Clan in exchange for high autonomy and the creation of the Nometra Assembly of Clans, with each head of a clan getting a hereditary title in the High Kingdom of Nometra. Cloelius Cyrillus named the kingdom Nometra after the city in which the meeting took place.

Cloelius Cyrillus became the first High King of Nometra, commonly referred to as Cloelius I during his reign, and commissioned the Sapphire crown and Sword of Nometra to represent his authority.

Cloelius I's first plan as the High King was to convince the Assembly of Clans to expand Nometra even further which was successful thanks to the high fervour and promised rewards to Clan assembly members. In the wars collectively known as Cloelius's Wars of Aggression Nometra successfully expanded Nometra's borders to the north and east through vassalization of weak clans or outright conquest and lasted from 175 to 181. After Cloelius's Wars of Aggression, Cloelius I created the positions of Clans Speaker and First Captain to better control the newly acquired territory and the decentralized nature of the Nometran army. Cleolius I spent the rest of his reign integrating and administrating the High Kingdom until his death in 192.

Iovita Duilius took the role of High King in 192 and dawned the Sapphire crown alongside the Sword of Nometra and became known as Iovita I. Iovita I was alarmed by the expansion of the Kingdom Of Osmax, many similar states in the region felt the same, and with Iovita I's effort created the League of Aineiasion in 212 FE which help control trade in the region.

League of Aineiasion

The High Kingdom of Nometra played a pivotal and leading role in the League of Aineiasion and was seen as the leader of the league during the early years of its establishment, influencing many of its policies and stances. The first agenda of the league was to curb the expansionist Osmax kingdom sending them an ultimatum to release several states between the league and the kingdom to create a buffer zone, however, Osmax's response was to declare war on the league.

Osmax war

During the start of Osmax war, the league had an advantage, the disorganized and autonomous nature of the league armies gave Osmax trouble as the league armies were everywhere at the same time, however, the lack of coordination, cooperation and objectives lead the armies dealing insufficient damage to Osmax while Osmax armies crushed the league armies one by one. Eventually, Osmax reached the Nometra city and razed it forcing the league to surrender. The league conceded several border territories and states to Osmax which ended the 3 years war. Nometra was devastated during the war, weakening it politically and economically while Osmax was only affected in its border regions.

However, after 221 FE, other league members demanded more representation and leadership roles, and to keep the league together, Nometra accepted the demand weakening its position in the league; although this benefited the league in the long run, it still undermined Nometran's authority for many years.

Colonial expansion

Nometra then shifted focus to naval supremacy creating small military crafts to manoeuvre and larger vessels for long journies efficiently. This helped them establish several trade cities along the coast of [NAME]. One trade city, in particular, grew exponentially and unexpectedly called Vedinum, which Governor Chariton headed and paved the way for the establishment of the Nometra Minora colony to the south of the Agarian mountains.

Trade cities and Nometra Minora played a pivotal role in Nometra regaining its political and economical strength, it also integrated Kingdom Of Osami trade routes to the mainland Umon, which benefited both Osami and Nometra.

Nometra Minora

Nometra Minora became a cultural hotspot mixing various cultures and religions including Nometrians, [Local culture] and [Southern Culture]. At first, Nometra attempted to unify Nometra Minora in religious beliefs but faced heavy resistance which forced them from spreading Osmanian in the colony. As time go on Osmanian would see a sharp decline in Nometra Minora in favour of local religions.

Fall of Nometra

Another war was declared between the league and Osmax. Osmax crushed the league and conquered various members of the league including Nometra. Many Nometrians nobles fled to Nometra Minora, however, some were promised positions and titles in the newly established Nometra province.


Initially, the Nometran government consisted of the High King, which is the monarch of the High Kingdom, and the Assembly of Clans, which acted as the Legislature of the High Kingdom. Later, the positions of First Captain and Clans Speaker were created to help organise the military and interpret the law respectively.

High King

The title of the High was an elective title chosen from and by the Assembly of Clans and acted as the head of state within the assembly's boundaries in peaceful times and an autocratic ruler during war times. The High King is part of the Assembly of Clans and had special powers, including veto rights and being the tiebreaker.

Assembly of Clans


Clans that attended the Nometra Meeting:

  • Ardic
  • Scrofa
  • Pictorus
  • Solythrae
  • TBD


Early Nometran military was very decentralized; each clan had its own army that only listened to the clan's chief orders; clan armies saw the High King's orders as a suggestion or guidance compared to their chief's orders. The High King's direct army, also known as the royal army, was called the "Azure Guards" as they were the only soldiers allowed to wear an azure focale or cloak to signify that they came from the royal army.

Equipment quality varied wildly, even within the royal army. Some portion of the army generally wore better and well-maintained armour compared to the rest. Each soldier had to maintain their own equipment.

The Nometran military was well known at the time for their "seventh circle" formation, a simple formation to learn yet effective enough. The seventh circle formation requires seven people in an ellipse formation, with two of the seven people being on horseback or wielding a long spear; these two people are called the Tasciac, being behind the other five soldiers and supporting them. The seventh circle formation allows for more effective and efficient fighting as inexperienced soldiers can be set on front with a mindset of survival while the more veteran Tasciacs support the other five and look for opportunities to attack the enemies. However, the fighting with the Kingdom Of Osmax revealed that the seventh circle formation crumbles once the Tasciacs are defeated.


After their defeat by Osmax the Nometran military reformed and adapted formations and tactics similar to Osmax. There was a semblance of unified training and equipment quality across Nometra. Each captain and clan chief is responsible for supplying, maintaining and paying the salary of the army they command. The High King also passed a law to make clans provide a portion of their soldiers for a season every summer and winter to the royal army, which helped achieve two objectives; to train the clan armies and enlarge the royal army.

The army also wore a more unified colour scheme to distinguish friend from foe easily; while the royal army still retained the azure colour, the clan armies wore a white focale or cloak instead. Officers also wore helmets with blue or white feathers to help them stand out in the chaos of battle.

Captains were paid in massive amounts and kept a large percentage of the loot to help them pay for the army that they commanded.

Legal system

The legal system can be divided into three parts in Nometra; local, interclan and royal. In local situations, a clan chief or a city governor presides or delegates judgment duties and decides punishment based on local and royal laws. Interclan is used when a minor problem or disagreement between clans or cities arises that does not require royal intervention or when the clans think that the High King is ruling in bad faith, the Clan assembly would act as a judge and preside over the trial. Royal judgement is reserved when neither local or interclan judgements are fit such as treason or corruption charges.

Trade cities

Nometran trade cities were cities that were either created with colonization or conquered with the main aim of establishing trade routes or having easier access to resources. Trade cities are governed by a Prefect which was appointed by the High King and assisted by a vice-Prefect who was elected from among the city's denizens.

Each trade city has their own army and navy that they maintain.


The majority of the Nometra were Midlanders, a name given to them when by southern and northern people they interacted with before the establishment of Nometra. With the creation of Nometra Midlanders and Nometrians became synonymous with each other. Religiously, most of the Nometrians were Osmanian, however many are unsure how or when the region become Osmanian. Some suggest that Osami was their source of conversion while others suggest Osmax.
