After a time the territories banded together under a King and called their Country Cedoria. After the University was founded, the Eldritch order settled in Hallorah and aided in the protection of the Cedorian Highlands. After the unification of countries into Baridain, Bariss supplied more and more soldiers to the entire realm and depended heavily on the Eldritch order for protection. After the destruction of Heaven’s Breath and the dissolution of Baridain, Bariss lost much of it’s soldiers and the city itself was flooded. Because of this, Bariss could not continue to enforce the laws and and solely relies on the Eldritch order to keep peace, though most believe that the wizards of Hallorah will use the Eldritch order to seize power and control Cedorian Highlands(No longer going under the name Cedoria) Between a deteriorated country and continually defending his people from the bandits of the North and the tribesman to the east, It is all the former Duke, now Laird, can do to keep order and diplomacy amongst his people and the Eldritch Order.
