Emélrenè is the last great Járind realm of Venârivè. The kingdom has existed for over fourteen centuries, and it has held back invaders as powerful as the Empire of Ázeryàn. Yet the dangers within the kingdom’s borders are far greater than any external threat, and the rulers of the realm are increasingly concerned as warning signs grow.
