Brothers of the Tor
Considered by many to be the heart of the Marcher Kingdoms, the Chalim Confederation unlike the other member states is not a single sovereignty, but instead a collection of thirty minor dukedoms. Traditionally the Chalim confederation would vote as a single unit in the Exaltment process in order to be better courted by the would be High Kings, but has recently been voting individually, with most of the western duchies throwing their support behind Corlonne and the eastern dukes standing with Austrova.
Chalim is a highly wooded land but does contain some good plains for farming. Due to the lack of a King of its own, Chalim is often overshadowed by the other members of the Marcher Kingdoms, but Chalim is still important in that it has a large population and is the home not only to most of the Kingdoms prominent temples but also the home of the Tor, the Marcher Kingdoms staunchest guardians.
When civil war breaks out between Austrova and Corlonne, Chalim often acts as the field of battle, and the various dukes are forced to choose sides.
