Varushka is the working name of one of the lesser nations so far developed.

This is the one drawing heavily on Slavic/Polish background & legends. It's the one I suspect a lot of people are thinking of as the Goth nation, or the We're-not-really-Vampires-honest... nation. I think the little out there on this one so far is going to lead to this one at the moment being the most misunderstood) nation as it's fairly clearly stated by PD that this isn't the case (although there is some Grimm's fairy tales influence).

At the moment, I'm thinking this is still going to be a fairly dark/grim nation.. but I can somehow see something like a 13th century version of Van Helsing playing out...

From PD via Facebook;

Varushka
“Bar your door and do not open it before the sunrise."

Varushka is a land of dark magics and dark tales. Monsters lurk in the sunless spaces of the forests that spread from one horizon to the next. The roads are warded to keep travellers safe, best you take that to heart, keep to your business and keep to the path.

Boyars rule their dominions with more power than any ancient king ever had. Wise ones nurture their people, teach them right from wrong and help them fend off the terrors of the night. Itinerant wizards, the Volhov, make everyone’s business their own. Authority comes in many forms in Varushka, sometimes brutal and uncompromising, sometimes subtle and unnoticed.

The land may be dangerous, but it is also rich. It is famous for its high quality furs, creating cloaks, robes and mantles in a range of colours and styles that mean many consider Varushkan fur the only fur to wear.

Varushka is the iron in the Empire’s laws, unyielding, uncompromising and they do what must be done to keep their land strong.They are the Empire’s bones. They endure all and still they prosper.
