History and current events
The Dragonborn empire came to be when the city of Tymander fell from the sky and landed in Fearun. The half-dragon inhabitants of this city took it upon themselves to carve out a place of power. Being powerful warriors and commanding incredible magic, the city was quickly able to crush anyone who would stand in their way. The city state quickly became an empire. About 400 years have passed since the city fell and they empire stretches across many lands. From the capitol city in Chondath it covers to the east all the way to the edge of Unther , south to the Shaar, north to tip of Turmish and the sea of fallen stars and finally to the west at the front lines of Cormyr and the Sword coast.
The Empire is currently trying to expand its borders in most directions but has hit a few set backs. The biggest of which is the on going cold war with Many-Arrows, The people of the Sword Coast and Cormyr. Many-Arrows is the organized and tightly disciplined kingdom that is majorly composed of goblinoids. The Sword coast is a multi-faceted collection of city states and provinces who war with each other and with the Empire itself. The only two open fronts of war currently underway are at Unther and in the Underdark, where the Empire is attempting to push back the Drow.
The ruling class of the Empire is composed of the council of lords, known as the judges. They are Passion, Wonder, Bravery, Horror, Disgust, Love, Laughter and Fury. Each judge controls a territory and rules over it, they in turn answer to the Dragon-High-Lord, whom no one but they are allowed to meet.
Thing known about the Judges:
- Laughter is the only Human on the council, she is the mother of Pyre. She gained her position by killing the old lord.
- Lord Bravery has been missing for sometime.
- The territory the party has been in so far is that of Horror.
The territory of Amn, is where the majority of Minotaur tribes who serve the empire live. They are organized into tribes that all answer to the 7 tribal chieftains.
There is currently an arrest on sight policy for the following races: Changelings, Genasi, Shardminds, Shades and Vyrloka. The Party recently discovered why the Vyrloka were hunted.
The are other persecuted races, the elves are a great example, who are allowed to live in the empire but are either slaves or rebels. Any unregistered Elf is confiscated.
