Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #51

Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #51 

Feb 20th 2023 

  • Number: 51 

  • Name: Matui Riverwardens 

  • Location: Operating out of various settlements along the Matui River 

  • Population (approx.): 600 wardens and a dozen vessels 

  • Brief: The western third of Taodeas is a relatively pastoral population of most halflings and humans. Once their tribal leaders decided to become part of the Unified Taodeas, the locals became quite diligent (some say obsessed) with maintaining the borders of their portion of the City-State. To that end, the Matui Riverwardens were formed to patrol the length of the Matui River from ocean to source to keep raiders from the Wastelands from crossing onto their lands. The tribes are on good terms with the Church-State of Earth and Water across the border to the west hence the Riverwardens have been known to render aid to caravans and vessels of the Churches if under attack. The Riverwardens operate oar and sail powered riverboats with crews of 20-30. They are known to be skilled archers, fighters and hunters supported by priests of Water and Earth (hence friendly relations with their religious brethren to the west). 

  • Geography: The Matui River flows from its source in the southern Lanu Maug west about 200 miles to the ocean. A large town can be found at its delta and numerous settlements on both sides of the border every 10-15 miles along its path. Matui Riverwarden docks, ships and watchtowers can be spotted by their bright blue and green banners (the bottom is river blue and top grass green, split by the silhouette of a riverboat). The Riverwardens typically wear tabards of the same design.
