The Belharan Empire
Once the premiere world power, the Belharan Empire was a nation of humans and elves said to be blessed by the gods in ancient times. Its borders stretched from the furthest reaches of the southern heartlands to the frigid borders of the The Frost Marches. Some time ago, the empire was caught up in the conflict now known as the Godswar, and it was torn apart by the chaos and destruction of the celestial war. The empire is a fading dream now, nothing but a collection of petty kingdoms still clinging to their tattered banners a thousand miles from the Marches. Their influence has not been felt this far north in a generation.
