Ale & Iron, Tears & Shadows
Ruled by a dragonborn family, the Ahkalnata Emirate runs along the far southwest coast past the Burning sands. A strong point of civilization on the outskirts of the Traverse, the Emirate has an uneasy and fragile peace with the Imperia. The Emirate has an number of wealthy, beautiful cities nestled along the coastline and enjoys plentiful food from the Great Bahamut River that runs through the Traverse to dump into ocean. Along the delta where the Bahamut meets the sea is Arkhadias, a powerful city known for it’s beautiful water gardens and bathhouses.
The Emirate is home to brown-skinned humans, river halfings and dragonborn. Fiercely independent and proud, the Emirate has tried to keep the wilds of the Traverse and the powerful might of the Imperia out of their small but wealthy kingdom. They feed most of the Traverse and merchant caravans snake aware from the small desert kingdom into the immense Traverse to sell grain and foodstuffs to the scattered communities.
