Ruins of the Old Empire
Once Vasindra was just the name given to the most fertile part of Sarakri. Since the coming of the Sable King, it’s more commonly used to refer to the country he controls—encompassing Halniz, Sondasi, the other former city-states of the area and the thin but habitable strip that loops north and west from there along Sarakri’s coast.
Vasindra is an authoritarian, semi-theocratic state whose goal is to extend the Sable King’s plan to end the Curse on the World and renew the Empire. Yutow has been elevated to primary status here, as opposed to the usual pair of Amaunator and Pelor. The other gods are still worshipped—no repetition of Ilmand’s mistake here!—but the Sable King’s belief that Yutow is the only one who can raise the curse is encouraged at every turn. Meanwhile, the King’s spies and agents infest other lands, looking for ways to bring them under his control. The vast trade of the old Southern League still continues, financing the new lord’s desires.
