Emirate of Anagrom

Anagrom

On the southern shores of the Sea of Durmstrang, we find the desert of Anagrom. The most imporant personage in the desert is the current Emir, whose birthright includes an almost divine authority over the sands of the desert. The desert has been expanding as long as history has been tracked, which in turn has given the Emir more power.

The Emir, Treachery Khalifah, rules from the city of Ataf (one of the few places where foreigners are allowed to visit), which sits on the coast of the sea, at the base of the end of the Starlost Mountains, which extend underneath the Sea of Durmstrang south of Imajibar and resurface again on the southern continent.

The tradition in Anagrom is to name one's child after a threat - in the belief that the name provides a ward against the threat. Thus, there are many from the Emirate named Sword, or Blade, or Poison and other negative things, which gives the natives of Anagrom a rather negative reputation. This explains the name of the current Emir.

The Orthodox Church of Gosh The Weaver, the national religion of Anagrom, considers itself the one true path to their deity. The potency of their priestly magics compared to the weakness of their brethren in other lands lends support to this claim. Their writing system (which they claim was given to them by Gosh The Weaver) bears tremendous similarities to the runes star-burned into the Tower of the Lost Sigil.

    -Baron Nortelrye

Historically, Anagrom has had an interesting arrangement where the church of Gosh The Weaver is opposed by the hidden church of Golrorray (my inadequate transliteration of the Anagrom characters) god(ess?) of salt and rebellion. The church of Gosh The Weaver ascends, and then declines. There is a short period where the church of Golrorray is in power, then the cycle repeats itself. To this author, an outsider with no real connections to the area, it appears that the church of Gosh The Weaver is well into the declining phase.
