蒂瑪西亞
蒂瑪西亞 is a city-state on the western part of 瓦羅蘭.

傳說

Along the western coast of Valoran, the human city-state of 蒂瑪西亞 shines as the continent的 paragon of virtue amongst all the other human settlements. The residents are always striving to sharpen their bodies 和 minds in the pursuit of absolute justice.

Culture

The people of 蒂瑪西亞 are d雷玟 by their common cause to disseminate benevolence 和 order for the betterment of all beings throughout Valoran. They view malice 和 selfishness as a disease which should be E[毒性爆發]d from the psyche of humankind. Those who come to 蒂瑪西亞 和 choose to settle within the borders of the city-state are expected to share the ideals 和 virtues of its citizenry. Those who seek per索娜l gain at the expense of others quickly find themselves ostraci劫… or worse. Life in 蒂瑪西亞 is not one of placid utopian dreams. Since the 蒂瑪西亞n people pride themselves as the moral vanguards of Valoran, they adopt seemingly draconian measures to ensure that their moral code remains the only code by which one may live within the city-state. Crime in any form is harshly punished: there are no misdemeanors within 蒂瑪西亞. Some detractors of 蒂瑪西亞 (who criticize far from the reaches of the city-state) claim this as proof of its inherent hypocrisy. 蒂瑪西亞ns counter this argument by pointing out that their justice system incorporates benevolence 和 mitigation into its verdicts. No one is punished without fair 和 just consideration of the circumstances involved. While others may continue to criticize the harshness of 蒂瑪西亞n law, the 蒂瑪西亞ns st和 by their convictions.

Government

蒂瑪西亞 is run by a constitutional monarchy, wherein the King of 蒂瑪西亞 serves as the head of state 和 an elected council serves as the legislative body. While the king is a strong ruler, he is kept in check at least partially by the 蒂瑪西亞n Council. The current King of 蒂瑪西亞, Jarvan III (a.k.a. Jarvan Lightshield the Third), works earnestly with the 蒂瑪西亞n Council to ensure that the sanctity of the city-state remains pure 和 true. Since the rule of Jarvan I, there has never been an attempted coup or rebellion of any kind in 蒂瑪西亞. The king serves not only as the political leader of the city-state, but also as the comm和er-in-chief of its military.

Noble Houses

As a monarchy, 蒂瑪西亞 is governed by various royal families, regulating the city-state primarily as members of the 蒂瑪西亞n Council. While many of the Noble Houses have ruled for generations, they are treated as any other citizen under the nation’s strict laws 和 are not exempt from them. They may even be treated more harshly under the law as they are meant to serve as shining examples of how 蒂瑪西亞n citizens should conduct themselves, publicly 和 privately.

Military

The 蒂瑪西亞n military is one of the strongest in all of Valoran, 和 until recently it was the only force capable of holding back the hunger of the military machine that is 諾克薩斯. 諾克薩斯 has been the sworn enemy of 蒂瑪西亞 since both settlements were founded hundreds of years ago. Their conflict is, at its core, a moral one. With such a night-和-day division of moral philosophy between 蒂瑪西亞 和 諾克薩斯, it is not hard to see why 蒂瑪西亞 views its military requirements as a vital necessity for survival. Every 蒂瑪西亞n citizen is required to serve in its military for no less than three years. Even after this time, most 蒂瑪西亞ns remain on 主動 status in the city-state’s military reserve. The resolve of 蒂瑪西亞的 military is alternately celebrated or despised, but always respected. Their “zero tolerance" moral code is strictly upheld by civilians 和 soldiers alike. In combat, this means 蒂瑪西亞n troops may not make excuses, flee, or surrender by example. Thous和s of great heroes have risen 和 fallen on the bloody battlefields between 蒂瑪西亞 和 its preeminent rival, 諾克薩斯. As an indoctrination tool, the 蒂瑪西亞n military utilizes The Measured Tread, a h和book which outlines the city-state的 ideology. Quotes from the book include:
  • “Death is inevitable; one can only avoid defeat."
  • “To fight for justice in the name of 蒂瑪西亞."
  • “Victory for our allies, defeat for our enemies, 和 justice for all."
  • “When 蒂瑪西亞ns march forth, ridding Valoran of the evils of selfishness 和 greed under the pristine banner of justice, we know who we are 和 what we fight for, unapologetically."
  • “In our eternal forward march, we must stomp out evil all across Valoran wherever it may grow. Leave no stone unturned: the roots of one ignored weed will inevitably corrupt the whole of the garden.”

Appearance

蒂瑪西亞 is a shining beacon of hope for humanity, 和 as such the city is the visual representation of this concept. There is a clean 和 pristine feel 和 look to the city. Towering spires litter the skyline of 蒂瑪西亞. White stone 和 marble are the materials of choice in the construction of 蒂瑪西亞n buildings. Majestic flags fly high along the parapets of the city. The city walls virtually gleam with power 和 nobility. The capital itself sits next to a natural port, with the majority of the other towns resting on a plateau.

Link to the League

蒂瑪西亞 was one of the first supporters of the 英雄聯盟, though its concerns were less for the planet’s stability 和 more for diminishing the Noxian threat to Valoran. 蒂瑪西亞 sent its best students of magic to the 戰爭學院, with some of them becoming master summoners. 蒂瑪西亞 holds its own in the Field of Justice, 和 this has subsequently eased the massive expenditure of resources otherwise needed to maintain its military force. The post-League 蒂瑪西亞n military is as strong as ever, though it has shifted its 全神貫注 from that of a st和ing invasion force, ready to re-conquest Noxian acquisitions, to that of an impenetrable bastion, secure 和 vigilant across its entire dominion.

History

Piracy Strikes 蒂瑪西亞n Navy

The DSS Excursion – a cargo sloop of the 蒂瑪西亞n Navy – was reported lost at sea, an apparent victim of piracy. All h和s aboard are currently missing, 和 no dem和s were made of the 蒂瑪西亞n government for their return. The Excursion was bound from 弗雷爾卓德 to 蒂瑪西亞 laden with unspecified trade goods, according to a spokesperson for the 蒂瑪西亞n Navy, when audiopathic contact with the sloop was ultimately lost. After twenty-four hours of communications silence, rescue vessels were dispatched to the Excursion的 last reported location. The 蒂瑪西亞n investigation of the ship的 disappearance – led by 蒂瑪西亞n 附魔【統帥】 of the Guard 和 英雄 of the League,  蓋倫 – reported that some of the logged cargo of the Excursion had been jettisoned into the Conqueror的 Sea approximately twenty kilometers from the vessel的 last reported position. Other debris located near the jettisoned cargo was divined for analysis, revealing that the Excursion had been attacked 和 boarded while en route to 蒂瑪西亞. Further divination did not reveal the identity of the perpetrators of the attack, though it was gleaned that the attack occurred at night when most of the Excursion的 crew was in their quarters. The investigation has further revealed that magic above maximum potency as dictated by the League was used in the attack, 和 necromancy is believed to have been used based on the evidence divined. As a result, the League dispatched a team of investigators led by League 英雄  凱爾, the Judicator. The whereabouts of the DSS Excursion remains a mystery to this day.

希維爾的 Vacation

Sure she的 deadly. She wouldn’t still have the title “the Battle Mistress” if she wasn’t. Sure she的 survived multiple attempts on her life at the behest of the Noxian High Comm和. Sure she的 hotter than a summer day – that red 和 gold outfit certainly provides her with plenty of space to move. Nevertheless, our lady 希維爾 may have come up against a force she won’t be able to overcome! For those whose memory is less than stellar,  希維爾 was arrested last October after going for an alcohol-induced joyride in a hex-tech conveyance, terrorizing her two passengers 和 a host of pedestrians. She was arrested by 蒂瑪西亞n authorities shortly afterwards, if you remember the hype, 和 she stood trial just the other day. Judge Haley Suede took pity on 希維爾的 “I’m just a lonely girl with per索娜l problems" defense 和 sentenced the 英雄 to 90 days in a 蒂瑪西亞n penitentiary, with time spent in the Fields of Justice not counting towards her sentence. Listen, I love our 英雄 – they pay my bills – but one thing I can’t st和 is the way they’re given special dispensation by the courts. If I’d done the same thing, I would be in jail for the next 18 months, 和 not in a cushy part of the prison. Oh well. Position has its privilege, but we’ll have to see how a jail term interferes with her duties to the 英雄聯盟. More on this as it develops.

蒂瑪西亞n Miners, Trapped in Kalam和a

Collapsedmine
Rescue parties rush to save the trapped 蒂瑪西亞n miners in Kalam和a.
An earthquake rocked the village of Kalam和a yesterday evening, causing the collapse of a mithril mine 和 trapping twelve 蒂瑪西亞n miners underground. Rescue efforts began shortly after the mine caved in, though no announcement of progress has been made by the village. No other damage in Kalam和a was reported. The collapse occurred during the early morning work shift at the #1 Loadstone Mining Consortium (LMC) mine, which is the site of 蒂瑪西亞’s primary mineral extraction operation in Kalam和a. Reports from miners who narrowly avoided the accident indicate that there was initially a low 藍寶 that rapidly grew louder emanating from deep within the mine. Shortly after the rumbling started, the main mine shaft began to shake, 和 it eventually collapsed. The fates of the twelve miners still trapped underground remain unknown. The tremor also released huge pockets of 魔法 energy into the atmosphere, prompting immediate concern that the area is rapidly becoming unstable. League officials descended upon Kalam和a en masse, studying the causes 和 effects of the catastrophe. Finger pointing began immediately across 瓦羅蘭; rumors that the quake was caused by the rampant inf拉克絲 of unregulated mining operations 和 environmentally unsafe mining practices by佐恩 have been raised, along with wilder accusations that the quake was deliberately triggered. The Loadstone Mining Consortium is a mining company owned in part by the 蒂瑪西亞n royal family. It had just conducted safety inspections of all its facilities in Kalam和a before yesterday’s events. “There is no reason whatsoever that the #1 mine should have collapsed at all,” commented Winston Garnersham, chief overseer of the LMC’s Kalam和a operations. “Although the earthquake was unpredictable, the magnitude of the shock was not great enough to cause a collapse. That mine checked out across the board; were it even remotely unsafe, we would have shut it down. We are not in the business of risking the lives of our employees for profit.” The League has offered assistance to 蒂瑪西亞 in its rescue efforts, as have the small contingencies of 皮爾托福 和 愛歐尼亞. Help has even been offered by the Noxian delegation in Kalam和a – a surprising move considering the animosity between 蒂瑪西亞 和 諾克薩斯 in recent years.  卡特蓮娜, 英雄 of the League 和 the Noxian High Comm和’s representative in Kalam和a, issued the following statement in light of the accident: “Our well-R[祈願]es go out to the miners who are currently fighting for their lives in the collapsed Loadstone mine. Such business is dangerous, especially when companies may be tempted to risk the lives of others in unsafe working environments. In the future, 諾克薩斯 would be willing to share the expert safety practices of Noxian mining operations with the other city-states working in Kalam和a.” The vast mineral wealth uncovered last year in Kalam和a has been steadily exploited by city-states 和 independent miners alike. 蒂瑪西亞 和 諾克薩斯 are the two city-states with the largest presence in Kalam和a, with both setting up military outposts near the village. The village’s elders have stated in no uncertain terms that they are looking to establish an exclusive contract with a single city-state for future mineral exploitation, though no final decision has been made in that regard. Both 蒂瑪西亞 和 諾克薩斯 are thought to be the leading contenders for securing exclusive mining rights in Kalam和a.

瑣碎小知識

  • The city-state motto for 蒂瑪西亞ns is, “蒂瑪西亞: now 和 forever."
  • A common W[仰天長嘯] among 蒂瑪西亞n 英雄 is, “蒂瑪西亞!"
  • The pronunciation of 蒂瑪西亞 seems to have some ambiguity.   蓋倫 拉克絲,  加里歐 和  葵恩 pronounce 蒂瑪西亞 as “De-mah-SEE-a" whereas  嘉文四世 pronounces it as “Deh-MAH-Si-Ah"
