Below and Beyond Kyvid
Jarlsberg, golden city of cheese, is the capital of Actand. As the trade hub and social center of the region, its population ranges from migrant dock workers to trade wise [[cheese-lords]] to old money nobility and new money merchants. Jarlsberg has thrived under the rule of Barlock II and his family, and the Emmenthal family has been one of the prime beneficiaries of his favor. Actand relies a lot on Utaro for its trade and did even before the rise of the empire, so historical ties are strong. The people of Actand for the most part don’t always understand why other regions would rebel against Utaro, given the peace and prosperity they’ve seen.
