Land to the north. Originally hailing from the desert borderland of Kessan, the human Empire of the Kessanid’s has garnered much power since The War. Due to the low birthrate of other races, the humans were able to regain their forces and reconquer surrounding areas. Soon the Empire spread, and now holds most of Arderia under its sway.
Although large and quite powerful, the Kessanid’s know the weakness of such a large empire and have thus compartmentalized power into the previous ruling lords. Although serving to the Empire they each are allowed a certain autonomy and allowed to retain their holdings and power. A large and metropolitan Empire, the people who live within are mostly Human. Magic users and strange races have either been eradicated, exiled or executed by the rulers.
The harsh laws, and anti-atheist/anti-magic sentiments have all be alienated the true Kessanid citizens from their subjects and other nations.
