Pitax is the name of a region within the River Kingdoms as well as the name of its capital city. Pitax is the domain of the bandit king Castruccio Irovetti. Cunning, ruthless and vain, Irovetti has brought wealth and expanded Pitax's influence. He established the Academy of Grand Arts, hoping to go down in history as a benevolent patron of high culture, not just another crime lord. It seems the River Kingdoms attract these sorts of deluded megalomaniacs, with the kingdom of Razmiran ruled over by the similarly deluded Razmir. The city of Pitax is filled with trashy art and bad sculpture, created by the masses of artists and poets that Irovetti maintains to massage his ego.
Other Settlements Edit
- Mormouth: Hamlet with mixed loyalties between Pitax and Numeria.
- Sarain: Town famous for fruit orchards and vineyards owned by the Liacenza family and for the Grand Tournament of Sarain (disputed by Mivon).
- Littletown: A small village located northwest of the city of Pitax.
Diplomatic Relations Edit
Pitax is generally at peace with its neighbors, except Mivon, with which it has an ongoing trade and art feud, and Daggermark, which has been suspected as being behind the poisoning of the Chief Flagellant Artist of Pitax, and the murder of the Butcher Artist of Fleet Street, who made his politically titillating anti-foreigner art from animal parts. Pitax has laid claim to the Glenebon Uplands area of the Stolen Lands leading to heightened tensions with Brevoy and the Swordlords of Restov.
