Kirkwall is a major city in Valoria. Its primary industry is whaling and the production of whale oil. The city is dark, dingy, and covered in grime from the smoke stacks powering the whale oil refeneries. In recent years, Kirkwall has become the de facto capital of all the mining going on in the Nordmark. Traders come to Kirkwall to purchase gold, silver, and other precious metals.

Background and beginning
As of the year 1232 there have been 56 Valorian Emperors. In 613 the Senatorial wizard,Caburus, destroyed the Senate building in Valoria killing most of the senators in the process. Caburus declared himself Emperor of Valoria. The following year, some of the remaining senators along with some of the military commanders conspired to depose Caburus. Their plan succeeded and they killed Caburus. After the assassination of Caburus, Valoria was torn apart by civil war as various factions wrestled for power. There were factions on both sides, pro-senate and pro-emperor, but it was Commodus Valerius and his loyal legions who finally emerged victorious. He declared himself Emperor, and vowed to institute a series of laws that would protect the citizens of the Empire. He is generally considered to be the first official Emperor.
The supreme power of the state is vested in the emperor, whose position gave the following powers:
Beyond his religious authority, the king was invested with the supreme military, executive, and judicial authority through the use of imperium. The imperium of the Emperor was held for life and protected him from ever being brought to trial for his actions. As being the sole owner of imperium, the emperor possessed ultimate executive power and unchecked military authority as the commander-in-chief of all Valoria's legions. His executive power and his sole imperium allowed him to issue decrees with the force of law. Another power of the Emperor was the power to either appoint or nominate all officials to offices of the state.
The emperor's imperium grants him both military powers as well as qualifies him to pronounce legal judgment in all cases as the chief justice of Valoria. Although he can assign someone to act as minor judges in some cases, he has supreme authority in all cases brought before him, both civil and criminal. This makes the emperor supreme in times of both war and peace. While there is no official appeal from the emperor's decisions, historically a proposal for appeal could be brought before the emperor by any noble during a meeting of the Crimson Assembly.
To assist the king, the Emperor's Council advised the king during all trials, but this council had no power to control the king's decisions.
The Lord's Assembly has very little power and authority; they are not an independent body in that they do not possess the right to meet together and discuss questions of state. They can only be called together by the emperor and can only discuss the matters the emperor lays before them. While the Lord's Assembly does have the power to pass laws that had been submitted by the emperor, the Assembly is effectively an honorable council. It can advise the emperor on his action but, by no means, could it prevent him from acting. The only thing that the emperor could not do without the approval of the Lord's Assembly was to declare war against a foreign nation. This statute has not always been followed by the emperors.
