The lands of Eristum remain free from the power of both coalitions. The sheer amount of resources in this region makes Eristum a priority target to capture and hold for both Crete and Hellas. But the faction leaders are in no hurry to unleash a new conflict. Using local lords as intermediaries, each of the coalitions wants to attract local residents to their side - residents as harsh as the desert itself.
Over time, Eristum turned into a real trading center. Now you can find goods from all corners of the Azmar Empire and even from the distant lands of the desert. Rumor has it that the inhabitants of Eristum will soon join one of the coalitions.
Once upon a time, Eristum was full of life, and its fertile land was completely covered with greenery. But constant conflicts and frequent raids by monsters have turned this land into a barren desert. Fortunately, the locals managed to discover an oasis whose waters never run dry. They decided to settle in this place.
The harsh conditions of Eristum have made the humans excellent fighters, tough and well-armed. These are the kind of warriors the coalitions want to win over to their side. But many high officials refuse to recognize the inhabitants of Eristum as subjects of the Empire, mistakenly considering them to be ordinary savages.
The people of Eristum are not inferior to the Imperials of Azmara in their pride, they have always defeated invaders and repelled the raids of monsters!
