The League of Extraordinarily Gifted People
The lands that had belonged to the Nerath Empire are now commonly referred to as Old Nerath. The Nerath Empire was the last great human empire, which fell over 200 hundred years ago after a war for succesion left the nation badly divided and weakened. The Hobgoblin Kingdom of Nekuzm and unorganized Orc warlords took the opportunity to make gains. The people of Nerath fought the invaders for many years, but steadily lost ground. Nerath’s government collapsed, no longer able to defend its borders or protect its people. The former citizens of Nerath who had not been taken into slavery or killed in battle, consolidated themselves into new city states such as Al Hanir or Ramshorn. A number of these city states persist to this day and are even expanding their countrysides and villages, signaling a spark of optimism for a human resurgence in the region. Still, much of what was once the Nerath Empire is now regarded as uncivilized by everyone but the Goblinoids of Nekuzm.
More recently, an unknown number of city states in Old Nerath suffered the wrath of the Tarrasque, perhaps making human resurgence in the region less likely.
