The nation of Tarsis began as the Aruth Empire ended. The last of the Empire’s holdings to announce their independence in the wake of the Last War, the kingdom now stretches from the Western Hold to the southern coast. Most of the land is covered by the Iron Oak Forest, and the kingdom has grown to protect the lands of the Faustrim Hills, a large free country of rolling plains of grassland. Tarsis boasts a large and vibrant trade economy, as they have the only access by road to the Dwarven lands of Ungolliath, bringing the city of Jestril an unprecedented amount of wealth and status as the new capital of the West.
