Tyranny of Dragons
Elturgard. "The Kingdom of Two Suns," is the first nation to have grown in the Western Heartlands. It encompasses much of the middle Heartlands and in its nascent stages, took up the region in the [[Fields of the Dead]] that was not already incorporated into the booming city-state of [[Baldur's Gate]], an ally of Elturgard. The formation of the nation of Elturgard began in its capital, the city of [[Elturel]]. It now includes Triel, Scornubel, and more recently, joined by Soubar and Berdusk. The territory, citizens, and tentative boundaries of the nation are protected by the Elturel Guard, which is composed of two orders, Companions and the Hellriders. The Companions are knights composed entirely of aligned paladins who individually bear the banner of their respective Deity. The Hellriders are the original guardians of Elturel composed of veteran warriors, Knights and Paladins of the God, Torm. According to legend, the original Hellriders of long ago once road into Baator to pursue and destroy devils that had been plaguing the land.
