A seaside town which has a perfect mix of tranquillity and fun, Acaris has a stunning beach right next to its main port of Gaios, where ships are perpetually entering and exiting. A busy port for merchants and slave traders to stop by for a drink or to spend a fun day off, Acaris is very much a town with a laid-back vacation vibe. The town of Acaris is the final point for all of the exports of winery by the House of Condos before it is exported to other kingdoms.
With wide rolling plains, it is no surprise that the House of Leventi would be great at producing top-notch equines.

Many have said that Acharist is quite a rejuvenating province, especially when one just stares at the landscape dotted with horses and humans both at peace together.
Located on the tip of the kingdom, Aetotis is most well known for the ancient temple of Poseidon, located in Cape Sounion.

A confusing blend of the modern and historical, Argothia retains a fair amount of historical architecture, yet the people of Argothia are anything but traditional.

Located in the beautiful centre of Taengea, Chaoedia is surrounded by luscious green and verdant forests. Emerald landscapes are as far as the eye can see, with a gentle breeze a constant presence around the province. The buildings retain basic Taengean architecture, with pretty colourful houses nestled in the craggy hillsides. The dense forests are kept beautiful and abundant, and all of which are managed by the Dimitrou family.
A small unassuming town in Taengea, perhaps the most drawing thing about this town was the large glass-blowing factory situated right in the centre of Doralis, with an attached tavern. Owned by the Condos family, the glass blowing factory functions mainly to produce the bottles used to contain the wine produced by the Condos vineyards. However, the glass-blowers also produce small knick knacks which they put for sale. On the edge of the town, is a small shrine dedicated to Dionysus, where a glass of wine is presented every other day as an offering for the god.
The province of Elopia boasts great natural diversity. From high mountainous regions to striking beaches, Elopia holds towns that are just waiting to be discovered.

Known for its narrow valleys and beautiful picturesque areas, Epirus celebrates a festival once almost every a month, especially when they have a vast and easy supply of wine for festivities.

A small cosy town that runs on a laid-back tempo, Euttica has nothing to boast of that would be mind-blowing, yet something about Euttica's small, easy-going attitude would put even the toughest warrior at ease.

A stunning landscape of greenery and rolling hills regardless of which angle you see it from, Macendia is a province flanked by dramatic snow-capped mountains and a quaint charm that is retained in their quiet town.

Situated at the mouth of the Kouklia river that runs through Taengea, Maliania has often been touted as the most romantic province in Taengea. Its flowers are often in bloom, many weddings have been performed there. Perhaps it has to do with the hilltop temple of Aphrodite that lends the town its romantic aura. The temple has an open court which is surrounded by limestone monumental walls, and right in the centre of the courtyard, the Fountain of Aphrodite stands, flanked by her sacred animals: a dove and a goose, with a rose in her hand. Many couples in love would visit the fountain in hopes of gaining everlasting happiness.
Considered one of the most beautiful towns in Taengea, Meganea is built on a sheer cliff, and provides a breathtaking view of the kingdom - if you manage to scale its sides, that is. The hike up is not easy, and definitely not for the untrained, but the view is worthwhile.
A town full of life, Melis is full of taverns, and gets their wine direct from the Condos vineyards.

Known as one of the seedier provinces of Taengea, the people of Phossis take partying a bit too seriously. There is never an hour of the day where the alleys of Phossis aren't filled with either 'flute girls' or whores garnering for your attention, or music going on somewhere within the town square. With the amount of celebration constantly going on, Phossis has also become a hotspot for street crime, and is notorious for having numerous pickpockets running around.
The province with the mildest climate whole year round, Thesdiki is protected from the harsh changing climates of seaside port towns, and is situated right in the centre of Taengea.
