Savage Nights in Ashmere
Empire of the Sand
Hundreds of years ago, the God-Emperor led the forces of the Empire west to conquer the free cities of Akaria, including Ashmere. Lord Ryker led an alliance of the free cities against the God-Emperor and slew him before the crossing could be made. Ryker’s Landing is the scene of this famous battle.
The Empire consists of approximately a dozen large city-states, each one ruled by a Satrap that serves either at the pleasure of the Grand Vizier, or by dint of their royal blood.
Some of the more powerful city-states:
Setma – A port city on the northern coast. Very rich and cosmopolitan.
