Signs and portents
One of the newest regions of the kingdom, Dureve Hundred has only been in Kandian hands for 23 years, since Retehm seemed it to Kanday as part of the peace of Selvos, ending Ezar’s War. The Order of the Copper Hook, the former holders of the Hundred, have never acknowledged the treaty. Except for the Hundred Moot and two chapter-houses, the entire Hundred is the holding of the Earl of Selvos. The primary industry of the hundred is Sheep Farming.
The Order of the Checkered Shield holds two manors in the Hundred. They belong to the Bishop of Perinore, Rekela Sir Tamys Bakyth, who has his seat in Erone. A knight who served under Sir Grolis during Ezar’s War, he has ordered his Reblena to heed the Earl on all manners of denfense of the Hundred. Spiritually, the manors report to the senior regional cleric, the Serolan of Selvos.
The Prince Anaflas Milaka (younger brother of the King) holds the manor of Kesethy, the Hundred Moot for Dureve. Located 20 leagues away at Imiden Keep, he has little involvement in the running of the Hundred. Provided the taxes are delivered on time and he receives no major complaints, he is content to leave well enough alone.
