The Pale is ruled by a clerical hierarchy in the name of the god, Pholtus. The Pale has been living under an inquisition for more than two centuries. Evil priesthoods and hostile cults are actively routed and destroyed, while other faiths are suppressed. Arcane magicians and other so-celled "consorts of demons" are also closely watched.
Despite these unpleasant aspects. Plae has much to recommend it. Monasteries house some of the Flanaess' most impressive libraries and respected philosophers. Their soldiers are among the best trained and most disciplined in the Flaneass. Unfortunately, troll invasions from the Troll Fens have tripled in size the last two seasons, and reports of a new "Troll King" are disquieting.
