Aundair is a mostly flat country of farmlands and vineyards, with a strong culture of craftsmen, academics, and magic. Its capital is Fairhaven, and House Lyrandar and House Orien are headquartered here. It possesses the premier academy of magic in all of Khorvaire, the Floating Towers. Although Aundair’s army is small compared to its neighbors, it held its own throughout the Last War through its use of spellcasters within the army to employ destructive magical weapons and spells against its enemies. Aundair is governed by The Triumvirate, consisting of Queen Aurala, First Warlord Adal (who is the Royal Minister of Magic), and Lord Darro (leader of the Knights Arcane). Its fiercest enemy during the Last War was neighboring Thrane, and relations between the two remain cold.
Common knowledge: Aundair attracts hopeful apprentices from all over the continent. The nation embraces and celebrates its magical citizens, funding numerous schools and guilds to produce the finest mages in the Five Nations. Most would-be students travel to the Floating Towers first, to present themselves before the masters of the Arcane Congress, before being assigned to one of the many schools spread across Aundair. This ancient institution, founded by King Galifar I a thousand years ago, stands at the forefront of magical innovation and study.
