    As for his evil alignment, it is actually rather well known. Worshipers of Haelyn can be evil; and Blaede is a for sure adherent to the more worldly views of the Western Imperial Temple. His spiritual advisor (appointed by Rhobher Nichaleir) keeps him aware when his actions might go against the better teachings of Haelyn; though Blaede believes in Capital Punishment to say the least...which he usually carries out himself

    I just think being a known evil regent would create so many do-gooder enemies, most especially almost every paladin in Anuire except maybe Avani's, and most good-aligned clerics too. It would also make it VERY hard to find allies amongst non-evil regents like The Mhor and Laela Flaertes (unless her alignment is neutral in your game).

    It's a lot easier for me to believe that evil regents are tolerated because no one can actually prove it with magic, only in the normal human ways (like a brutal style of rule/law), and then all kinds of things are justified in the name of expediency and power.

    That is really the only way Blaede's "evil" is known: he is ruthless in his dealings; but fair at the same time. He employs goblin mercenaries too. His Priest Advisor knows full well his dark side and tries to temper it

    A major part of the early campaign was that he was attacked by Shaemes Lavalier who hoped to once and for all end the tyranny of the Alam family in Alamie. That is why Blaede now has Boots of Speed; but the spear was taken by his mother "for safe keeping" by her.

    However, there are LOTS of evil monarchs all over Anuire that Paladins and such don't try to take down. Haelyn even has evil worshipers, so it isn't uncommon for Evil individuals to both be known to be evil and be rulers of domains:

    Mieres has Arron Vaumil

    Port of Call Exchange has el-Hadid

    Brosengae has Eriene Mierlenen

    Ghoere has Gavin Tael

    On and on the list goes and many of these individuals have numerous allies.
