Overview

From the moment it was named for the very first Princess, Sibola has stood above and beyond all the other Realms, for it is the oldest, most enduring, most important of all, for the Empire is Sibola, and Sibola is the empire.

Sibolans consider themselves well mannered, proper, more knowledgeable, more capable, more deserving, more worthy than others, but they also are more than aware that they are not the be all and end all of the world. There is a tension to those who adventure, a struggle between what they know to be the way things are “back home”, and the way the rest of the world is, with their ways not being the norm when it comes to many things.

Sibolans are the survivors of the Bitter Road, and the people who spread out and made the Empire. They are an adaptable, self-assured, self-aware people who nevertheless tend to carry an air of superiority about then that most who adventure try hard to shake off, because while it is of great use in Sibola, once you step away it becomes more of a problem.

Sibolans have a great respect for authority, for titles, but they have shades of contempt for Mages, for treason, for disrespect and ill repute. It takes a lot to rattle a Sibolan, but when something does, it rattles them deeply, and almost always involves those who harm the weak, the helpless, the infirm, and the unarmed.
