The Dust of Legacy
The city-state of Tanith
The last of the great City States around the Verdun sea, Tanith lies in a fertile river valley on the edge of the Great Desert with the sea to the north. The lifeblood of the city is the river, it is also called Tanith. A great marsh lies at the southern end of the valley and is the source of river, but where the water comes from has long been a mystery as all that lies beyond the marsh is the Great Desert.
A city of 200,000 Tanith is primarily home of Humans and Half-Elves. These races have lived in harmony for many years and have interbreed for all of recorded history. However that history does not reach back very far. The fall of the City-States of the Verdun sea started in the year 3308 old calendar in a war that lasted 25 years. History past that year is largely blank due to the combination of war and the religious suppression in the years leading up to the war.
Almost 200 years have passed since the end of the war and relative peace has settled over the region
