Kingdom of Chybisa

Kingdom of Chybisa (#5600), 32 pages

Chybisa is Hârn’s smallest realm but is rich in both history and natural resources. The kingdom sits in the fertile valley of the Ulmerien River, where a succession of cultures across two millennia have woven a complex cultural tapestry. The kingdom’s story is one of ebbs and flows, with intrepid settlers, lands lost to barbarians, invasion and assimilation, secession and intrigue.

Surrounding the kingdom are the ranges of three barbarian nations. While the Bujoc to the east are wary and few in number, the Hodiri in the south and Pagaelin in the north are among the most populous and aggressive tribal nations on Hârn.

Relations with the kingdoms of Kaldor and Melderyn are peaceful if somewhat strained, for both have claims to Chybisa. Although neither seems inclined to press their case, the situation worries King Verlid VII. Oaths sworn and broken by Verlid’s father lie at the root of these claims and are also a matter of contention with elements in the Church of Larani.

The internal and external pressures on Chybisa provide opportunities for those brave enough to grasp them. The only bridge across the Ulmerien is at the royal seat of Burzyn, giving Chybisa control over trade along the Genin Trail between Melderyn and Kaldor. The rich mines in the Anadel Highlands are threatened by man and beast. Wars and plagues have left a number of abandoned and ruined manors ripe for resettlement. Ancient mines and fortresses of the Elder Folk lie waiting to be discovered.

Kingdom of Chybisa is supplemented by other Columbia Games publications, including castles, keeps, and adventure sites to give GMs and players unending possibilities for adventure.

Atlas Map L7: Chybisa

Atlas Hârnica Map L7: Chybisa (COL #5000-L7)

Atlas Hârnica map L7 covers the majority of the Kingdom of Chybisa in east central Hârn. Major settlements include Burzyn, Onden, and Geda. Beyond the settled lands of the fertile Ulmerien River Valley, the map includes the southern hills of the Upper Osel region and much of the Anadel Highlands, the source of mineral wealth for both Chybisa and Melderyn. The ranges of three barbarian tribal nations converge on this map square, the treacherous Pagaelin, reclusive Bujoc, and nomadic Hodiri horseclans. The Genin Trail, one of Hârn’s great trade routes, runs through this region to connect the kingdoms of Kaldor and Melderyn.

This map’s varied and wild terrain, important towns and trade route, barbarian tribes, wandering gargun, and much more offer plenty of opportunities for adventure.
