Fjorden is a theocratic nation state on Sel.
While the first Fjordell empire had expanded through military might, the second had expanded through the mass conversion of other nations, on both occasions only the nations of Arelon and Teod resisted.
The second Fjordell empire was governed by a militaristic theocracy, the national religion of Shu-Dereth commanded its followers to adhere to a rigid chain of command with with the leader of both the church and empire (who was believed to commune directly with their god, Jaddeth) at its head. This allowed each person in the empire to serve their god, although only the emperor Wryn could do so directly.
Although no one of Fjordell heritage nor anyone residing in Fjorden may be taken by the Shaod they do have their own magic system, known only to the Derethi priests of the Dakhor Monastery which causes their bone to grow harder and twist into what are thought to be Fjordell symbols. These symbols grant the Dhakor priests various powers, most of them battle related.
