Zinedoms (Issue 6, August 2013)

Karnish, the Crown, and the State

The nation of Karnish rose out of the enslaved South when Fandor and Mynax led their armies against Amman and defeated them. Out of the carnage rose a new nation, Karnish, which became a force of good and ensured the longest peace in Arrasia known since the fall of Lima. Justice and trade were at the heart of the new ethos and nearly all the nations embraced it. The might of the Karns grew until their empire was unsurpassed and the once unconquered Amman crushed.

The politcal structure put into place as the nation first emerged has served it well and seen it grow into the greatest nation on Arrasia. Now the nation is in decline, with war along its borders and a new chaos consuming the lands around them, these structures are more important than ever and the people of Karnish put their faith in both the King and in Fandor that what underpinned their greatness will now help maintain their freedom and their nation in its darkest hours.
