The World of Gorania: Koya

Now we come to the last realm in the Goranian world. Most of Goranians do not consider the islands of Koya part of Gorania. The fact that it’s the only kingdom that was never conquered by Goran the Great could be the reason for that. As they were never involved in big wars with other factions, Koyans are believed to be peaceful people. Still they … Continue reading The World of Gorania: Koya

The World of Gorania: Bermania

Unlike The Warrior’s Path, Queen of Rebels (coming in three days) is centered in one kingdom, chronicling one of the darkest periods in its history. Having said that, we have a couple of scenes in brand-new places we have never been to in Gorania. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Bermania. There are many reasons for the Bermanian Pride. They are the descendants of Goran the … Continue reading The World of Gorania: Bermania
