Kingdom of Selu’havessthyr

Location: east
Climate: flatlands, large forested tracts, low mountains preventing ocean access to the east
Government: oligarchy (noble families)
Capital: Selu’havessthor, “City of Majestic Spires”
People: n/a
Ethnicity: sun elf

Establishment: Selu’havessthyr is the oldest of the Tsarven kingdoms, bearing dominion of the area long before the rise of humans or even their Djinni masters. Dating back to the First Flowering, this kingdom and its capital Selu’havessthor was considered the greatest of the sun elves’ dominions, but fell from glory during the crown wars due to the arrogance of their ruling house at the time, who have since been destroyed along with their allies, leaving the remaining houses to pick up the pieces.

Summary: The remaining noble houses following the end of the Crown Wars have worked over the ensuing millennia to restore the kingdom to its former magnificence, but many still believe it to only be a shadow of its former self. Still, to a human it bears a magnificence rarely seen in a lifetime, surrounded by the main remaining tracts of forested land in the Empire. Its inhabitants look down upon Sindh as a backwards-thinking state, diluting superior elven blood to something lesser, and thus most sympathisers with Sindh’s policies have already since left the kingdom long ago for its northern neighbour. They are openly hostile towards Phaederia, but are held in check only by a degree of respect for the Celestial Emperor, and knowledge of swift reprisals from the rest of the Empire should they act.
