  • The duchy of Zausengas to the Northwest
  • An unnamed other nation to the East/Northeast

History

Several years ago there was a coup within the Sovereignty. Though Ehrenfest formally stayed neutral in the conflict, many nobles from the region died and others moved to other territories. Due to this, Ehrenfest, like all nations of the Sovereignty, is suffering a severe shortage of mana, causing much difficultty. Many nobles who had been sent to the church were recalled to their families, in turn causing a secondary mana shortage in the church.

Religion

According to the Scripture, the world was created when the lonesome God of Darkness come together with the Goddess of Light, and together, they had four children; the Goddess of Water, Fruhtrane; the God of Fire, Leidenschaft; the Goddess of Wind, Schutzaria; and the Goddess of Earth, Geduldh.

One day, the God of Life, Ewigleben fell in love with the Goddess of Earth at first sight and the two were married, but his was a jealous and possessive love, and so he trapped her in a block of ice creating the season of winter. The Goddess of Light thawed the ice and the Goddess of Water washed away the ice, along with the God of Life, creating the season of spring.

The God of Fire unleashed a wave of warmth to help the land prosper, creating the season of summer. The Goddess of Wind called on a powerful gale to keep the God of Life away, creating the season of autumn.

Then returns winter, season of the God of Life.
