Explorers of Barsaive
In the Selestrean Sea southwest of Barsaive lies the isle of Thera, seat of the Theran Empire that held sway over Barsaive in the years before the Scourge. Though the Scourge cost the Therans control of Barsaive, they regained a small area of the province in the years that followed. The Theran controlled lands in Barsaive include the city of Vivane, Sky Point, and their surround communities. Theran territory extends to the southern edge of the Delaris Mountains, the western shores of the Death’s Sea, and into the far southwestern portion of the Twilight Peaks. Adventurers often encounter Theran patrols and airships in these regions. The Therans rarely venture beyond the Twilight Peaks, preferring to consolidate their hold on the territories they already control.
For the moment, the Therans seem content to settle for the small portion of southwest Barsaive currently under their control, but rumors place Theran spies in virtually every major Barsaivian city, as well as several of the larger towns and villages. Though Therans pose little or no immediate threat to Barsaive, few people doubt the Therans’ intention to one day reclaim Barsaive as part of their empire.
