The small, self-sufficient domain of Lambreth rose from the union of three rival merchant families, the Cullertons, the Angelidis, and the Viscarra, who founded the city-states Maashinelle, Lockridge, and Sezgin, respectively. Fearing annexation from their neighbors, the families negotiated a union, ruling as the Triunes of Lambreth, in 4502 AR.1 Throughout the River Kingdoms, Lambreth suffers the least from bandit attacks. Newcomers and troublemakers quickly draw the attention of the Black Eagles.23

History

At one time, the domain was known as Alban. It was overwhelmed by goblins in 4071 AR and became the barghest-ruled Kingdom of Zog. This came to an end in 4217 AR when the Yellowtongue Sickness swept through the region, crippling the kingdom. Weakened, it fell to a loose coalition of adventurers, river folk, and half-elves that same year.1 The goblins of Zog left behind many pits, delves, and hidden cave complexes that have yet to be explored.2

Government

Lord Kamdyn Arnefax rules Lambreth as a merciless dictator. The Black Eagles, feared horsemen resembling dark versions of Andoran's Eagle Knights, act as the local militia, protecting the citizens, collecting taxes, and enforcing Lord Arnefax's rule. In addition, each village has its own council, led by an elected mayor, who makes requests and complaints to Lord Arnefax, although most are wary to do so.4

Settlements

Relationships with other nations

Lambreth lies very close to the theocracy of Razmiran, and this proximity has brought about a violent history between the two nations as Razmiran seeks to expand its land and influence through conversion.5
