Note: It the local Purple Dragon campaign the Renewalist faction is unknown.

There are two main factions in the kingdom. The Royalists favour a strong central government controlled by the King, and Loyalists (or Traditionalists) who favor the strong traditional rights for the nobles who support Cormyr and the Crown.

The Loyalists argue that a strong nobility is needed to balance the often head-strong and sometimes less than able Obaskyr rulers. One of the Royal Wizards once remarked that "Cormyr has had many bad kings, but never an evil one". In some cases, Loyalists have argued that it is necessary to convince one Obaskyr to step down in favor of another [3]


  1. ^ Castle in Tempest Valley south of Chara's Mountain.
  2. ^ The Bleth family lost their lands and titles after the failed plot to kill King Azoun IV in the Year of the Gauntlet (1639 DR). Cf. Cormy: A Novel.
  3. ^ One example of this is the abdication of King Iltharl in favor of his sister Gantharla. The king abdicated on his own accord once he became aware of the Loyalist conspiracy to put his sister on the throse.
