Mysteries of rashemen
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
Rashemen is a magocratic gynarchy in the far northeast of Faerûn. The northern part of the country is barren and wreaked by strong, harsh winds while the south is cool but not nearly as bad. Surrounded by mountains and huge lakes and rivers, the built up area of Rashemen is highly defensible, though those northern region are attacked by Nar barbarians and monsters quite frequently. The people of Rashemen are called Rashemi. Rashemen is more closely connected to the Feywild than any other location in Faerûn.
The Nominal ruler of Rashemen is the Huhrong or “Iron Lord”, He rules in the best interests of Rashemen. The real power however lies with the Witches of Rashemen. They pick the Iron Lord and can change him whenever they feel it necessary. At a local level, each settlement is ruled over by a fyrra who only controls the armed forces under his command but their rule can be compared to that of a mayor.
