Legendary - War of the Gods
Istros rests on the outskirts of Thrace dominion; it is a border village that competes with Odessos as the main port on the Black Sea. Though it also worships Apollo as a patron deity, it seems to be taken with Aphrodite and other decadent gods as well. Its “Istran Legion” also serves to protect the northern parts of Thrace from invaders, but often lets the Odessan Legion do most of the work. It is only 400 soldiers strong, who seem to be local oligarchy that is comprised of several prominent merchant families and controls everything that happens in the village. Any defense of Thrace would require supplication of the Istran Legions, though given their lack of experience one must wonder whose side they are really on were anything to get too volatile in the region.
