The Seige of Saltmarsh
History of Nesh
Nesh is an empire built upon the deaths of thousands. Nesh consists mainly of Humans but other races are seen within the empire as second class citizens. The Nesh empire has been able to traverse vast distances due in part to their skilled horsemen and system of roads connecting every town and city. The use of magic within the empire without permit is seen as an offence to the empire and is punishable by lashings. Magic is seen to the common Neshian as being foul and dirty. However within the higher ranks of society magic is seen as a powerful tool to be used to wage war and for personal gain. Any individual who is born in Nesh that shows promise with the use of magic is taken into the military and is raised for use in battle.
