Sultanate of Aftane

Seven Sultans, the Red Kings
Not Recommended



Aftane is the union of three city states (Aftane, Adaba, Shoufal) and is united in some ways with the Brotherhood of Khet, Chosen of Kirdai, and the Wizard of Ber Tarva. The seventh sultan, the Red Herald, has no domain, but is the essential face of the Red Kings, the secretive regents of these domains.

[top]Life and Society

With the exception of the cities of Aftane, Adaba, and Shoufal, this realm has little to offer. The savanna is too dry for prosperous farming or herding. Raiders from the Tarvan Waste make the countryside even more dangerous. The Red Kings concentrate on the cities, where the most power is.

The fortress city of Aftane is policed by the kharmin moushal: the Red Guards, who harass foreigners routinely.

The city of Adaba remains important, for without its fortified harbor, the king's fleet would find itself at the mercy of the Emir of Mesire, who could bar Aftane's passage into the Baïr el-Mehare.

Shoufal, an oasis city, sits on the caravan routes south of the Tarvanian Hills. The Red King (Yazid al-Hakam) who rules here has alienated the populace to the point of rebellion. The several geirhou of Shoufal would profit from a return to Ariyan governance. The wizardess Adara is an outspoken advocate of this idea.
