Welcome to the Distant Reaches…

Welcome to the Distant Reaches…

A map of the center of the Amal Empire. This is but a fraction of the breadth of the Distant Reaches.

The Amal Empire reigns from the City of Amalcross — a place of immense wealth and profound inequality. A thousand years of Emperors and Empresses have sat upon the Diamond Throne there. Mages and Binders drive the machinery of empire with spells.

At the Emperor’s bidding, Bards bring tales from far and wide to compete for favor at court during the Conclave of Bards.

The Salavasters, mysterious lizard-like people from across the ocean, come with riches and spices for trade.

Ravaging bands of ravenous Rilk’gar are a constant threat on the far frontiers of the empire. Uncanny Beings from beyond the Meridian — the divider between this world and the roiling Chaos beyond— walk the earth.

This is the Distant Reaches, a vast land filled with strange beings, ancient magic, powerful romances, and bloody conflicts.
