World of Deiradh
Empire of Berrani
For almost a millenium the world was ruled from the marble throne of the Emperor until the usurper Marginald De’Vinet overthrew the Council of Amn and created the City-state of Summersedge. Following in De’Vinet’s footsteps, revolutions across the lands became commonplace until the Treaty of Shaengarde was signed by the three great powers. The powers split the lands along the Shaengarde River leaving the homelands of the Empire, Berrani proper, in the hands of the Emperor. To the south, Summersedge became the liegelord of all the lands of the Grimstone. To the east, the Republic of Pern was created. The far and distant reaches of the empire, although not specifically lost in the treaty, was all but abandoned. This began the time of AE (After Empire) in the reckoning of years.
Since then the Empire has became a shell of its former glory.
