Nightmares of the Last War
The land of Riedra contains a huge variety of environments and features. In the south are jungles including the Shanjueed which straddles the border with Adar, and other stately pine forests in the north such as the Worm Wood. Mountain ranges form the border between Riedra and the Tashana Tundra, specifically the Frostblade and Frostwall Mountains which cut through Dar Maleer. In the southwest, the Andnemun Desert marks the fluid border with Syrkarn. The eastern shore of Riedra is made of the islands of Ohr Kaluun which enclose Koralandaluun Bay. There are also two inland seas, the Kelneluun and the much larger Rhialuun, which break up the drier lands to the west.
The Inspired are unquestionably the rulers of Riedra and they have their sights set still on the rest of Sarlona and on Khorvaire and Xen’drik across the sea. Though only those inhabited by quori spirits are truly Inspired, even those from Chosen families are favored over other humans. Elves and dwarves are not tolerated within the borders of the nation, branded as dangerous because they are less susceptible to quori influences, and kalashtar are excuted right out. Changelings are a step above humans, however, as their changeable form is seen as an expression of their spiritual nature. Shifters and ogres are an important part of Riedran society even though they are thought of as lesser being in the hierarchy of the Path of Inspiration.
