Through great power and control of bound elemental lords, the Ancient King`s eldest son still lives and directs the continent`s largest nation. The Everthrone is his by blood, and all the world will bow to him or burn.
The most accomplished of his siblings, Nasier was the first to build his own nation within his father`s Kingdom. He united fractious peoples, brought prosperity, and wielded power second only to his father. It was never enough. Striving to be worthy of the Everthrone, Nasier turned to darker, forbidden practices and unlocked the power of the elemental lords. Nasier`s nation of Kartoresh is united behind its Scion King and the Great Temples of its elemental patrons. Its numerous and pious people routinely give themselves over for inhabitation by demonic elemental spirits, transforming into utterly loyal soldiers who fight without fear and kill without compunction. After centuries of quiescence, Nasier himself stirs from his fortress, and his armies assemble. When the Burning King marches to war, the world will be forever remade, one way or the other.
