Schwartzwald Republic

The Schwartzwald Republic consists of the rugged lands north of the Rune-Midgard Kingdom. It is a realm of science and technology, spearheaded by the wealthy Rekenber Corporation. The Republic appears to be a representative democracy led by an elected president, but the election process and ruling system is not transparent to outsiders.

Important locations include:
Juno, the capital
Einbroch, the industrial center
Einbech, the mining town
Lighthalzen, the commercial capital
Hugel, the garden city

We are only just beginning to explore the Schwartzwald Republic as a location. By the way, in-game the spelling of the Republic's name changed in the game's formative years, but I'm sticking with Schwartzwald because I always thought it was borrowed from the location in Germany, but apparently that's actually spelled without the t. Oh well.

The Republic doesn't have a Knights' Guild per se, but the Lord Knight Sir Glass Leonid is its national hero. But in the end, he is only a figurehead--people who've played through the game's quests will know that Rekenber holds the power in Schwartzwald.

Rune-Midgard is currently pursuing an alliance with the Republic. Mixing the Kingdom's magic with the Republic's technology could lead to interesting results...
