Western Island Empire of Felune

Felune is the large, distant continent to the west of Toulne. It is a land of level plains and sandy expanses, with low plateaus and rocky steppes. There are few mountains or hills over two thousand feet in height, and much of the central and northern lands are quite arable. The southern lands are sparsely settled, as they are ruled by vast dry expanses of desert sand and shifting dunes.

The empire of Felune is ruled gby the emperor, simple titled “The First.” He rules with an iron fist and strict governance, often known to punish lawbreakers with extreme justice. It’s said that the emperor, upon being titled “The First”, is given the scepter of Kna’, which is a sliver of moon rock that is said to be able to draw power from the massive moon pillar in the south and control the seas. More than once, the rulers of Felune have taken responsibility for violent tidal storms that have rocked the coasts of Toulne.

Felune’s capital city is called Tardash, and it boasts over 200,000 people within its high walls. Three coastal cities are the primary sources of overseas trade with Toulne, a trade which is ever-present and lucrative. Though they are partners in trade, Felune and Toulne have a tumultuous relationship of economic leverage, indirect military competition, and sometimes open threats.
