|“||A story of bravery and grit. The ruins are mere war scars. With the Stone Golem as our leader, the Shek Kingdom will rise as the most powerful nation once again and we'll retake our fallen cities. The fat Empire gluttons, the Okranite dogs, we'll crush them all and take the lands, mark my words...||”|
–Shek Barman Admag
Home to the Shek, the Shek Kingdom is a faction headed by Queen Esata the "Stone Golem". They follow the teachings and lifestyle of Kral, a legendary Shek warrior who consolidated the Shek tribes into a centralized nation hundreds of years ago. Shek society is divided into two castes, warriors and servants, the latter of whom are often defeated or cowardly warriors whom fill the niche of skilled/menial work.
The Shek believe that dying in battle is the most honourable way to die, and by living the way of the warrior they can pass on to the afterlife known as Gateway, a spiritual kingdom where all the great heroes reside. This makes for strong and fearless warriors, but lowers their population growth. In fact, this somewhat suicidal mindset has been steadily dwindling their population, a cause which Queen Esata has been trying to reverse with help of her aide, Bayan.
Mighty Shek warriors form the Hundred Guardians and are given battle names to support their honour. While the strongest are given a place in the The Five Invincibles. They can be currently found inside the Faction HQ building of Admag.
Their kingdom is in ruins after a long battle with The Holy Nation. Their former king Shager wanted to risk another battle but Esata fought him and won the throne. This is detailed in King Shager's Reign and Shager's Overthrow.
