Noquin Caste (men of the southern desert)

Separator

The Noquin are a mysterious people that live in the Southern desert and arid lands of the Incian Sphere. They have an extremely complex social and feudal order and caste system in which they derive their name from. The Noquin are known to the rest of the Sphere as highly secretive and almost xenophobic of the outside world. The high noble caste, known as Princes, exists at the highest rank in society and each governs his or her own territory as they see fit. Many lower nobles may serve a single high noble and are required to pay tribute as well.

Only those born of a high noble family may attain the status of a high noble. Lower nobles consist of the highest ranking members of each of the different types of castes: Soldier, Merchant, Engineer, Academic, and Developer. Soldiers do the fighting and defend the territory of each Prince and the more powerful the Prince the more separate castes of soldiers will serve under them. Merchants are in charge of trading and keeping the High noble's finances in order while Engineers are charged with caring for the building, creating, and repairing of objects under the Prince's control. Academics are tasked with recording, researching new ideas and also educate the eligible population. Developers are mainly charged with farming, distribution, and storage of food for the Prince. Each caste employs workers of various ranks and slaves.

Citizens are considered the non-slave families of workers and soldiers. In most cases women stay at home and run the household but some work within their bred caste. Guilds are a separate caste that operate outside the influence of any specific High noble. There are numerous and powerful guilds each housing a specialty that can be called on by any Prince for the right price. Guilds rarely work for non-Noquin entities or individuals. Each High noble and guild has their own secret language that is only known by its own members. Life is structured for the average Noquin, but can be harsh. Treatment varies from one master to the next and freedom is limited. Marriages are usually arranged by family or a lord himself. Many are for political reason with rick mineral deposits in the area, much can be made from trading with the outside world. A Noquin adventurer would seek freedom to honor his lord.
