Regional Advantages and Templates
The united isles of the Three Kingdoms share a common heritage, but have been shaped by various forces over the centuries that has led to a greater diversity than would be expected for such a small nation. The following information for the peoples of the areas of the Three Kingdoms is not limited to only for the Nobles of these areas. The 7th SeaTM Mechanics section gives the regional advantage for that location for character creation in the d10 roleplaying system. The d20TM System Mechanics section gives favored classes, skills and languages for each group. For the Highland Marches and Inismore, the languages section replaces the automatic languages for an Avalon character as given the in the Swashbuckling AdventuresTM rulebook. The Cymric language given in a few sections is the ancient language of the Three Kingdoms (which would approximate to Celtic or Gaelic languages in our world) and is coming back into use with the rise of Elaine and the return of the Sidhe.

Avalon

Balig
In theory a puppet state of King Piram, Balig appears more impoverished than it actually is, all for the benefit of the Breg tax collectors. With its main city of Canguine under a Sidhe curse, it has become a haven for pirates and other ne’er-do-wells.

7th SeaTM Mechanics
When purchasing the Courtier Skill, Balig Heroes automatically gain Sincerity at Rank 1, but purchasing the Noble Advantage costs 3 extra HP.

Typical Prestige Classes: Andrews Swordsman, Robertson Swordsman
Class Skill: Bluff or Sense Motive
Additional Languages: None

Breg
If there was a revolt against Queen Elaine, it can be certain that the county of Breg will be near the centre of the plot. King Piram quietly plots against the current rule, still burning about his defeat during the unification of the Three Kingdoms.

7th SeaTM Mechanics
Heroes from Breg may purchase the Donovan School for only twenty HP. If they do so, however, they must take a Hubris for which they only receive 8 HP.

Typical Prestige Classes: Donovan Swordsman, Saboteur
Class Skill: Innuendo
Additional Languages: None

Camlann
The ancient seat of power for Avalon, Camlann is a land ruled by its passions and marked by influence from Inismore. With the Sea Dogs and Explorer’s Society based out of the port of Cardican, a naval tradition complements their abilities in Sidhe Glamour.

7th SeaTM Mechanics
If you are a Glamour sorcerer, you receive two extra points of Glamour Knacks during hero creation, but you receive five fewer HP than usual and must take a 1-point Obligation Background, representing a Sidhe whom you owe a favor.

Favored Classes: Wanderer, Glamour Mage
Typical Prestige Classes: Captain, Midshipman, Topman
Class Skill: Profession ( Sailor )
Additional Languages: Inish

Gaavane
The small province containing the sacred Grumweald forest is under the direct control of the powerful and mysterious Derwyddon. Few outside of the druidic orders know exactly what transpires insides its wooded borders.

7th SeaTM Mechanics
Residents of Gaavane may purchase the Druid school for 5 HP less. However, if they do so, they may not purchase the Firearms Skill or the Streetwise Skill at Hero creation

Favored Classes: Bard, Druid, Glamour Mage
Typical Prestige Classes: Goodfellow Archer
Class Skill: Knowledge ( Sidhe, legends, Glamour )
Additional Languages: Cymric

Lothian
The people of the northern Avalon province of Lothian are as wild and untamed as the rugged countryside, no doubt due to their historical connections with the Highland Marches. Duke Carlyle cuts a very distinguished appearance when in Elaine’s court, with his thick kilt and even thicker accent.

7th SeaTM Mechanics
You receive the Hunter Skill for free, but you may not purchase the Courtier Skill under any circumstances.

Favored Classes: Ranger, Wanderer
Typical Prestige Classes: Donovan Swordsman, Goodfellow Archer

Lovaine
The largest province of Avalon contains both its current capital of Carleon and the former Montaigne capital of Luthon. Steeped in Glamour since the return of Elaine, it is here that you are most likely to spot the Sidhe or one of a number of fantastical beasts.

7th SeaTM Mechanics
Residents of Lovain receive twice as much income as normal and receive one Free Raise when performing Reputation actions in the Triple Kingdoms. However, all checks to resist the effects of Glamour have their TN’s raised by 5

Percis
As the nearest coast to Montaigne, the county of Percis has had a long tradition of trade that has caused it to grow rich. It is also now populated by dozens of Montaigne emirgés, calling in old favors to escape the terrors of the Revolution.

7th SeaTM Mechanics
All Percis’ Heroes speak Montaigne for free, but purchasing Glamour costs
two higher HP than usual.

Inismore

Carrig
The estate of the O’Toole family is the most powerful in Inismore, and if it were not for the O’Bannon it is likely an O’Toole would run the nation. Spurned by the Sidhe, the O’Toole family constantly look for new allies and resources to take the power they see as rightfully theirs.
