The known world of Karthador is comprised of nine “free nations” who were once part of the Myratan Empire but now pursue their own destinies. Here’s a quick preview of one of those nations: Myratas.
Myratas is a land of gleaming towers, fabulous wealth, and scientific wonders.
In the previous age, Myratas ruled the whole continent, and what are now free nations were mere provinces of the glorious Myratan Empire. Today, Myratas is known as the technological center of the world, the source of the newest and most advanced crystal machines. It’s a nation driven to succeed, no matter what the cost.
Myratans are proud, ambitious profiteers with a twisted sense of honor. While they think nothing of lying or cheating to get ahead, they have the highest respect for both their families and their workmanship. They respect wealth and education. Those who have accumulated both are counted as true Myratan nobility.
Myratas is ruled by a Great Council comprised of the nation’s wealthiest citizens. Seats on the council are not truly hereditary, but since the seats are literally purchased each year, and wealth is hereditary, the seats might as well be too.
To fuel its insatiable technological output, Myratas imports vast amounts of energy crystals, wood, ironglass, and other raw materials from across Karthador. The factories then turn the materials into high-quality goods that are sold across the continent for great profit.
