Shashaim, the Empire of Emerald

The home of half-breeds and other misfits, Shashaim was once a small scrap of land settled by a band of seasoned mercenaries. Their land bordered Genev and the constant press by northern lords infuriated these founding souls. Led by an elf named Solis Numenyaron, what began as a mutual defense agreement among a few towns quickly expanded. Drawn by the promise of protection by the former mercenaries and their allies, more and more joined the emerald banners. Solis was elevated to true rule by his followers. 

In the centuries since that unification, more and more territory has been added by conquest or alliance agreements. What was once a purely defensive arrangement became more akin to every other nation. The Emperor rules a society organized more on the principles of expertise and merit than bloodlines. The country lacks noble houses and instead the equivalent to Genev’s high lords—called the Archons—are organized into orders with various specialties. Each one is represented by a different gemstone:

Ruby – Barbarians
Amethyst – Bards
Diamond – Clerics
Agate – Druids
Opal – Fighters
Pearl – Monks
Citrine - Paladins
Peridot – Rangers
Onyx – Rogues
Topaz – Sorcerers
Garnet – Warlocks
Sapphire – Wizards
