The Realms of Adventure
A young nation that coalesced from a handful of independent city-states, Vesperin is a nexus or trade, rumormongering, and skulduggery. Commerce and corruption rule this land more surely than its government. It is an exciting, dynamic place where something’s always going on.
This region was once called the Vast, before the independent city-states united. The area has seen an influx of immigrants, especially the city of Ravens Bluff. Many Sembian merchants relocated here in the face of Netheril’s occupation of their homeland. A couple of decades ago, Netheril outlawed all such immigration. Sembians who tried anyway wound up dead.
Gold counts for more than blood here. Vesperin is a place for intrigue, doublecrossing, and conversing with those normally met as enemies on the battlefield. With Sembia under the thumb of the Netherese, Vesperin has flourished. Here, neutrality is the rule. On the other hand, unlike in the Moonsea lands to the north, basic rules of conduct are enforced in Vesperin; it’s not quite so bloody or literally cutthroat as Mulmaster.
