With the shocking news of recent days that the former Jewel of Nirath, the shining Duchy of Usifan, has, with the blessings of the Divine King, decided to separate itself from our glorious kingdom and seek its own way as a sovereign nation in its own right, many have been questioning what this means for them, their families, and Nirath as a whole going forward.
