Dirge of the Sun
The Realm of Neseroth makes up the small portion of tamed lands on the western most shore of Arak. Dividing Neseroth from the dangers of the untamed lands is two mountain ranges and a massive wall that bridges the gap between them. Neseroth is made up of several smaller territories, which for the most part are united in peace under one ruler, Lord kuz'teth, a Lich that rose to power by intricately orchestrating a large uprising of followers only two decades ago. Prior to this Neseroth was ruled by a counsel of eight Kings from the twelve territories. The four territories not part of the counsel are called the Free Kings.
Neseroth has exisited for nearly nine ages. Each age spans a hundred years and the end of each age is marked with the passing of a decade long winter that consists of cold days and long colder nights.
