Almost. The area in the story is split into three countries, the largest being called Raisos. Raisos is one with no centralised government, or, was. The largest city has started a government that do dictate social life in the city, and have slowly started invading other territories within Raisos. Despite the war, the other tribal towns seem fine to let the fight ensue, and eventually, as they fall, they do start banding together. After a rapid growth in one area, another city has formed and set up a huge defence against the oncoming army.
The story starts one night during a siege on said city, and the protagonist is on sentry duty. Placed there last minute, he is tired, and falls asleep, leaving his gate open. Army gets in under cover of darkness and destroy a section. he is banished into the wilderness of Raisos. I've got more plot, but ain't saying more. I'm staying quiet on it XD.
