The Vacant Throne
Nerath is a shadow of what it was a hundred years ago. The last great human empire collapsed when Kind Elidyr ended the threat of the Ruler of Ruin and his gnoll army, at the cost of his own life and those of all his heirs and trusted nobles and companions. Today, Steelhaven and its surrounding villages are all that is left of the mighty nation that once spanned nearly all of northern Anthar.
A High Regent rules Nerath in the absence of a king and the throne remains empty.
