Synonyms for tilean or Related words with tilean
Examples of "tilean"
God of War, is claimed to be the father of Ramalus and Romas, the twins who founded Remas, and has been venerated as a god since Tilea was first founded. When the
Empire rose to its full prominence, holding territories as far north as Kislev, Marius was the most popular god, as it was he who was the patron god of Remas and of course the
army, but now, after Estalian, Bretonnian and Imperial rebels reclaimed their homelands and Gitilla da Hunter ensured the fall of the
Empire, Marius is no longer worshipped in any of the City States, save for Luccini, the most militaristic of all the States, and Remas, the city of which he is patron god.
Freedom Park (also known as Democracy Park; "
Pracheathippatay"), is a 1.2-hectare plaza in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The park has been the location and focus for political demonstrations against Prime Minister Hun Sen's regime.
Estalia is dominated by two powerful port cities, Bilbali and Magritta. The rivalry between the two - and between each and their
neighbors, for that matter - has endured for centuries. Estalia bore the brunt of Sultan Jaffar's invasion from Araby, which was eventually driven from the peninsula by a combined force including knights from Bretonnia and The Empire. Estalians take great offense at being referred to as Tileans, or at being addressed in the
language by accident. The peninsula is renowned for its Diestros, skilled duelists who ply their skills across the Old World.
Remas became a republic during the long period of famines which beset the whole of Tilea. These famines were caused by plagues of rats and mice which ate the corn in the fields and the grain in the storehouses. The situation became so bad that grain had to be imported from wherever there was a surplus, but thanks to
mercantile expertise, and
seafarers, deals were done and grain was shipped in from such places as Bretonnia and the Empire and bought from the wandering Merchant Princes.
The city of Pavona itself remains small in comparison to other
cities. The city is noted for its many bridges which are not over rivers, or canals, but high above the narrow streets, enabling the Consuls and members of the ruling family to go from one house or palace to another, without having to descend into the bustle of the streets below.
There are four common gods of the
city-states. That is not saying that there are not other cults in the cities, and it is not uncommon to have more than one major temple in any of the city-states.
Myrmidia, Goddess of Peace, is the most prominent god in all of Tilea, much like Sigmar is in the Empire. Many of the
soldiers worship Myrmidia, and several regimental standards have different aspects of her on them. There are lesser temples all over Tilea, but there are major temples in all of the city-states.
The city of Luccini stands beside the
Sea at the southern tip of Tilea, opposite the island of Sartosa. Luccini is almost continuously at war with the pirates of Sartosa and has a very strong fleet of galleys. Luccini is in fact one of the strongest military powers in Tilea and many generals of repute, including Curius Gaezar, have learned their trade there.
Eventually, Lustria is "discovered" by the
merchant Marco Columbo of the Old World who witnessed the defeat of a Dark Elf raid on Tlaxtlan. This started a new age of exploration in Lustria (called the New World of Gold by men) who started to probe the borders of the continent. The Lizardmen tolerated their settlements on the coast but if there was any looting the perpetrators were hunted down and mercilessly exterminated.
On Marketag, the first day of sailing season, a huge festival of Mercopio is held near the acropolis at the centre of the city. Merchants from the Empire, Estalia, Bretonnia and the other
City-States make the long journey to Trantio each year to attend this festival, to sell their wares and other goods. Many mercenary and adventurer warbands sent by the Merchant Princes often make the journey to the Marketag Festival to purchase new weapons, equipment, and other necessities, like new standards, maps, and fine crafted Imperial pistols. Also mercenaries often sell their skills at this festival as well.
Trantio is rather an upstart city. Many centuries ago it was not very powerful at all. Situated inland in a hilly area, it was a bit of a backwater and did not prosper greatly from trade. It was the first city to support the overthrowing of the last king of unified Tilea, Tarquinio III, the rise of the republic. The unified republic lasted a long time, but eventually became decadent after the fall of the
Empire and its division into the various city states. All attempts to capture the city by armies from Remas and Miragliano were thwarted by the garrison of Trantio suddenly changing sides at the right moment. Trantio became notorious for playing off rivals against each other in order to keep its independence.
Marco was an exemplary State Leader, and was clever enough to keep his gains and establish his family securely as the ruling bloodline of Trantio, despite being from Estalian background. The city soon began to prosper from trade and exploited its position to trade westwards across the sea and eastwards over the mountains. Thus Trantio has become one of the most cultured and beautiful of all
cities. Dwarf workmanship and skill travels westwards along old trade routes through Trantio, into the rest of Tilea, and further on towards Estalia and Bretonnia. This shows its influence in the quality and ambition of the buildings, raised using many Dwarf techniques of construction. The fortifications, gatehouses and towers are particularly massive. Vast quantities of marble were brought down from quarries in the Apuccini mountains as well as the exotic pink-veined Trantine for which the city is famous. This stone was used for Grottio's huge sculpture 'The Five Graces' which adorns the piazza in Verezzo.
In the fictional universe of Warhammer Fantasy, Tilea is the region of the Warhammer world roughly analogous with that of the Italian City-States(basically Italy during the Middle Ages and Renaissance period), yet is also home to mercenaries of many races. Men are the most common race in the land as the rulers of the various City States, but other races, such as the Dwarfs and Ogres, fight for the armies of the so-called Merchant Princes who rove the land, and the more archaic settlements of Fauns and Centaurs are also found round and about. The Dogs of War army in Warhammer Fantasy, as yet not having received an Army Book for 6th (nor 7th or 8th) Edition, represents the armies of the various Merchant Princes and are composed entirely of hired mercenaries, whereas the main
nation has not received an official army book and has relied upon unofficial versions.
