Reia Bonu System
Aikon (phonetic: icon) is the Renaissance Festival of Daireem.
This planet is still stuck in the "dark ages." There are no space ports. They use gold and silver and other naturally valuable items as currency, and do not recognize tape. They view outsiders as witches, and any travelers should be wary and try to fit in as much as possible. If you don't, you might find yourself tied up to a stake in the middle of a marshmallow roast.
Many travelers that do venture to the planet are in search of dragon scales thanks to rumors of the existence of dragons inhabiting remote regions of the world. The rumors are unconfirmed, though most adventurers in search of dragons do not return. The ones that do come back generally don't say much.
The Aikonians are, unbeknownst to them, some of the best blacksmiths and armorers in all of Daireem—at least if you don't need Kevlar or guns.
All of civilized Aikon—not including, of course, the various lone communities scattered around the world—falls under a monarchist rule, that of Sir Maru Keinsif, a bloodthirsty knight who murdered the last king before an heir could be named and took over the throne for himself.
