The Weight of Rubies
The human-controlled Torei lies further south. Formerly a Sa’iph-held province, Torei’s humans broke away from the Sajeem’s rule three generations before and have been ruled by a series of relatively short-lived military commanders. Both those of Shal blood, or mages trained by the Politi Order, are unwelcome within its borders. Its southern boundary is in constant flux, with the Shal-controlled territory surrounding Visaiyain perceived by its ruler (currently General Arkus) as a constant threat. Arkus has been trying in recent years to bring Helve under his control, in hopes of expanding his power further south and further isolating Visaiyain within his borders.
Torei has also, in the past two decades, given rise to a new church, the Temple of Hamal, that teaches of a single deity that created all things and all peoples. The Temple has established a foothold in Torei, and its clerics have recently moved westward.
