Brotherhood of the Griffon
Akanax holds in contempt the "fat philosophers" of Heptios.
(Large City, 24,632):
This town functions like a military camp. Male citizens are conscripted into the army or slain for desertion. Strangers are only barely tolerated here and viewed with suspicion. No mercenary companies are allowed within its borders. Akanax has been warring with Luthcheq for several years, and has allied with Cimbar against Soorenar. King Hippartes (LN male human Ftr19) is a tyrant but considered the finest soldier in the nation. Akanax’s city population figure doesn’t include the army camped outside the city, some fifty thousand soldiers.
