Chronicles of Golarion
Cheliax was once one of the most powerful provinces of the Taldor Empire. They seceded from Taldor during that Empire’s decline and were a great nation. Then after the death of the nation’s patron god Arodan the nobility turned to Devil worship. Adopting Asmodeus The Iron Emperor as their patron.
Now Cheliax is a powerful yet chilling place of tyrannical Order. Blood Knights and Inquisitors roam the streets searching for insurrection. People pay homage to a god they secretly hate while zealously praising him in public. The Kingdom, ruled by the Thrice Damned House of Thrune seeks to expand and conquer it’s neighbors both militarily and politically.
It is a dangerous place to live and an even more dangerous place to adventure.
