Malbar and Beyond
Kingdom of Isger
The Kingdom of Isger is a strategically located warlike nation. Their leader, Farothan Long-stride rules with an iron fist from his capital in Elidir.
Isger is currently at war with all of it’s surrounding neighbors. However, it’s strategic location, massive fortifications, narrow entry passes, and large mercenary armies, make for a huge undertaking for anyone wishing to come out victorious over them. Isger has withstood a continued assault on it’s land for fifteen years from Druma, Andoran, and Cheliax. Molthune has made a few attempts at coming over the Menador Mountains directly but have been decimated by the massive walls Isger has established in the range. As such, Molthune has largely remained out of the conflict directly, focusing more on providing weapons and manpower to Druma to assist in their attack.
Not only is Isger a mercenary paradise, it is also a region rich in ore and gemstones. The northern end of the Aspodell Mountains are full of gem deposits that are being extracted through the use of thousands of forced laborers. Some say Long-stride has a powerful magic user that controls the very minds of the workers to ensure they do not try and escape.
