HistoryEdit

Telmar was first settled by aboriginals who built towns throughout what is now known as Telmar.

Settlement expansion spread far northeast of Aurum and citizens in this region wanted to form a free nation state in direct influence and style of the Nation of Aurum.  The powers at the time in Aurum allowed for the creation of the Nation of Telmar with the first border crossing being between Union and Conlis.  Borders were peacefully drawn with the Nation of Aurum and national friendship excelled.

During the formation of new nationstates to the east, Telmar sided with the Nation of Aurum on all fronts and helped support the creation of the Nation of Lurue and the removal of extremist factions in the Land of Evereska.  It also was united with Aurum and Lurue in placing a moderate leader for Evereska.

Geography & ClimateEdit

The geography of Telmar is diverse and varies depending on location.  A large eastern majority of the country is treeless tundra with long cold winters and cool short summers.  Small pockets of pine exist in this region.  Through the center of the country, a few desert regions exist with cooler winters and mild summers as well as temperate forested lowlands.  Pockets of temperate plains land exist throughout the country.  Rainfall is heavy through the central corridor, espeically as you head southward or westward towards the Nation of Aurum border.

Mountains exist along the southern border with the Nation of Aurum by Conlis as well as Tucker Mountain by Emmerich.  Lower mountain ranges extend through the central and eastern portions of the eastern tundra.
