The Heart of a Defiled Land
Sorcerer-king of Tyr. Or is he? Unthinkable, but widespread, tales of Kalak’s death have begun to appear.
Sorcerer-king of Balic, the most democratic of the Seven Cities. Balic is the wealthiest of the city-states, and Andropinis, for the most part, keeps his hands off the merchant trade.
Sorcerer-queen of Gulg. The Oba, the Forest Goddess, the Mother of Trees and Beasts and a dozen more epithets besides. The people of insular, primitive Gulg believe Lalali-Puy is a goddess. She is the absolute power in Gulg – everything in the city belongs to her, and she decides life or death for all Gulgans.
Sorcerer-king of the city named after him, Nibenay is reclusive and rarely seen or heard from. The city for the most part seems to run itself. Occasionally rumors of his death will spread, causing him to emerge from seclusion to reaffirm that he is, in fact, still very much alive.
Sorcerer-queen of Raam. Abalach-Re does not present herself as a civic leader, but instead as the high priestess of a god called Badna. Raamites report she seems to spend most of her time pursuing her own pleasures.
Sorcerer-king of Urik. Hamanu calls himself the King of the World, and perhaps someday he will be. Urik is highly efficient and militarized, and Hamanu has has his fingers in every part of the city. Urik’s army is famous across the Tyr Region for never having lost a battle.
