Cothique is one of the ten High Elf kingdoms or realms of Ulthuan and one of the Outer Kingdoms.

It is located in the north of the continent, and is relatively densely populated.

Geography

The land is well known by the High Elves for its grey shale beaches and towering sheer cliffs whilst the wild seas that surround them have many fierce predatos such as Sea Serpents and Megalodons [1a]

History

Erik Redaxe raided the kingdom in 2502 IC with a huge war fleet, it is later engaged and driven from the shores of Ulthuan by a fleet under the command of Tyrion. [3b]

In 2518 IC the Dark Elf Assassin, Shadowblade leads a small group of Assassins to Cothique where he poisons the rivers causing a crippling plague. [2c]

Inhabitatnts

Most of Cothique's citizens live along the coast, and it is from here that most of the accomplished High Elf mariners hail from. Many of them are filled with wanderlust adn they are never happier when aboard a ship sailing as a trader or warship, sometimes even as raiders. [1a]

Elves from Cothique are considered more superstitious and often devout worshipers of Mathlann and his children, with warriors bearing images of them on their shields. [1a]

Locations

There are many small stone harbours along the coastline. [3a]

Military

The Silver Helms of the kingdom are renowned for being able to fight mounted aboard their warships. [1a] Many of their fishing and trading vessels are also able to act as warships against the Norse and Druchii. [3a] Warriors of Cothique often helms styled as the heads of sea serpents and cloaks made from the hides of sea monsters, whilst armour is coloured blue or green. [4a] Sky ships and war-catamarans patrol the coast, archipelagos and reefs whilst messengers are dispatched on giant flying fish . [2b]

Trade

The main industries are fishing, shipbuilding and trade, whose routes extend to the Old World.[3a]
