Crieux

Crieux
Ruler: Duke Douard Allais du Crieux
Dialect Spoken: North Montaigne
Crieux is both financially and politically powerful. The
Allais family has grown so wealthy from its trading ports
and fertile lands that it can refuse or work around the
Empereur himself. Crieux alone in all of northern and
western Montaigne pays the taille (see page 46) with the
Pays d’Etat, thanks to a favor that the Duke called in. The
west coast of Crieux is dotted with ports and tiny fishing
villages, while the rest of the province consists of cultivated
farmland.

Crieux
Population: 60,000
Crieux serves as the home of the headquarters of the
Knights of the Rose and Cross — Crieux House. It’s also
where Duke Allais makes his home, in an opulent manor in
the center of town. The Duke is constantly putting on some
extravagant event, such as mock battles using entire armies,
or games of Squares using people as the pieces. He uses his
own fortune to fund these events, and keeps the taxes
reasonably low with his political connections, so the people
find him a tolerable ruler.
