Hell of a Summer
Riedra is a vast empire, encompassing much of the continent of Sarlona. It is ruled by the Inspired, mortal vessels for the angel-like spirits known as the quori. The only opposition to Riedra’s supremacy over Sarlona is the small mountain enclave of Adar, a stronghold of the kalashtar.
The land of Sarlona was once a collection of different nations like Khorvaire. The Quori came into the dreams of the land’s leaders and inspired them to unite the continent under a single empire. 1,300 years ago most of the nations of Sarlona were brought under the government of Riedra which was subsequently led by the Inspired.
Today, the former nations are provinces within Riedra which are maintained by Inspired governors and inhabited by fruitful, loyal and docile citizens. While there are pockets of rebellion, and corners of Sarlona remain outside of Riedran control, most in the Land of Unity are zealous worshipers of the Inspired who follow them without question.
