Good Afternoon Sentient Creatures, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today we continue to provide more lore content for the Confederacy of Allied Republics. So let’s talk Segobriga:
Republic Name: Segobriga
Cities of Note:Malaga, Bilbao
Major Commerce: Produce, Distillery (Wine, Oil, and Alchemical Components)
Minor Commerce: Oil, Textile
Description: The people of the Republic of Segobriga are renowned for their love of wine, dance and sport. Segobrigans are as likely to join into a melee as they are to break into song. This free-wheeling attitude could be attributed to being one of the few Republics that can flout the stranglehold that the Republic Blackwater has on the western strait, as they have easy access to the northern ocean and the Blackwater sea. Fruits from Segobrigan orchards are shipped all over the known world, with Segobrigan Oranges and Olives regarded as the best in the world.
Life for the Segobrigan peasantry is hard, as most commoners spend their days laboring for the Dons, Segobrigan landlords and nobles who profit from the labor of their servants. The DePaloma family, owners of the largest number of Olive orchards in Segobriga, is also the most politically connected. The patriarch of the family, Don Alberto-Jose DePaloma represents Segobriga in the Republic Parliament and is widely regarded as a devout follower of the Herald of the Sun. His son, Don Adrian-Carlos DePaloma is governor of Segobriga and has a reputation as a hedonist. The ancient practice of honor duels is still legal in Segobriga, and it is not uncommon for Segobrigans to challenge others to a fist fight or a sword fight to protect their honor against any perceived slight.
