Volgen is a land to the west of Drangleic. It is a lively place, famous for its merchants. There are great, bustling cities vibrant with trade. It is said to be very competitive, and bribery is a necessity to get anywhere.
The clerics of the great city of Volgen are perennially entrenched in scandalous power struggles, but among them remain a few strong-willed, upstanding noblemen.
Domestic Volgen soldiers are infamously timid, so the fierce band of mercenary falconers was hired to compensate. In practice they serve as bodyguards for the affluent elite, and they serve well, such that nobody dares scrutinize their backgrounds.
