The Serpent's Isle
The Nadir Kingdom
The Nadir are a war focused kingdom on the island to the South of the Serpent’s Isle. Conflicts between them and the Empire of Stone have lasted since the inception of the two nations, occasionally turning into all out war. The Nadir are a much smaller kingdom, however the rough landscape and martial society have bred them to be far superior warriors. The only thing that keeps them from being a greater threat to the Empire of Stone is their desire to fight causes them to turn on each other too often to be an organized war machine.
Beyond their love of violence, outsiders know little about the Nadir. Living near the Nadir causes all sorts of rumors and tall tales to sprout up among the populace, though it is tough to determine what is real or not. Stories include gaining their power from sacrificing infants to demons and their greatest heroes being able to reincarnate themselves.
