The Arandai Empire

The Arandai Empire is not what it once was, but it remains exceptionally potent, with awe-inspiring naval power. Its territories on every continent are growing, along with control of maritime trade. Colonies garrisoned by the Pearl Throne include the icy northern citadel of Nedarac, where precious Phoenix eggs are found; the strategic stronghold of Gan Dareb, in the Middle Sea; and Celed Ryman, a fortress monastery scarred by pursuit of magical knowledge in the southern part of the Great Ocean. Additionally, there are outposts in Sagarika, Taphria and around the Sea of Thirst that remain loyal to the Arandai, among other locations.
