Dark Tide Rising
Gryphon is the largest of the Eastern Kingdoms in terms of both geographical area and population. The nation is named for Tyverion Gryphon, a brilliant (though ruthless) general who united the local city-states through conquest nearly a thousand years ago. Unlike the majority of human kingdoms, Gryphon does not operate under a feudal system. Local provinces are ruled by a royally appointed governor. Gryphon is also one of the only kingdoms on Thorcadia that maintains a national army (as opposed to a system of local lords and militia).
