c. 1000 BEKE
This is about the sovereign state known as "Neressa".. For city (which happens to be the state's capital city), see Neressa (city)

The Empire of Neressa, lying in the Grey Mountains may be small, but her army is well-trained and equipped. Even though the city-state's inhabitants are mixed of various races, they are still xenophobic, and do not even let suspicious-looking strangers inside the city gates. They do not tolerate orcs within the borders, and even lizardmen are barely tolerated.

The Empire led by the Emperor, who is also one of the members of the Circle of Fire. In theory, his position is inherited within the family, and the one who is the most skilled with fire magic gets to inherit the throne. The Imperial Family is considered to be descended from a mythical and legendary "Phoenix Emperor", dating back to the times of Fathred's short-lived confederation, which unified the Humans under one border for the first time. While the Emperor is equal to all the other members of the Circle of Fire, he is the absolute ruler of Neressa itself.

The Empire is closely allied with a group of semi-nomadic tribal humans known as "Clan Drmiah", allowing them to live on Neressan land tax-free in exchange for military service. semi-nomadic tribal humans known as "Clan Drmiah", allowing them to live on Neressan land tax-free in exchange for military service.
