Runes of the East
The Old Kingdom is what the people of Oy call the way life was before the Sundering. It was less of a kingdom, and more of a society, in that there was very little governmental structure. The Priesthood of the Pantheon was responsible for law and order, which did not require much work. At the time, the Gods were active and present in Verden, and occasionally even seen by those outside the Priesthood.The people were all unified, and there was no war.
