The Burning Sultans
Ras el Zem
Ras el Zem is a nation that occupies the northern half of the Azadi mainland, encircling Lake Kaffik. Its capital is Deiwar. Due to its northerly location, its climate is somewhat harsher than that of the Sandsea Confederacy, or even the more temperate Bal’Teth. Colder weather and rockier terrain make living difficult, and the Zemiri people have a reputation for hardiness as a result.
The nation is ruled by the noble class of Dynasts, descendants of the original warlords that united the lands surrounding Lake Kaffik into what is now Ras el Zem.
