Legends of the Ninth World
The Pytharon Empire
One of the oldest nations of the Steadfast, the Pytharon Empire also commanded most of the southern reaches of the Steadfast in ages past. Fallen into complacency and plagued by poor leadership the Empire was reduced to a shell of its former glory, until recently. The Empress Challadien II began an aggressive campaign to restore the greatness of the Empire rebuilding its military and implementing a number of wise infrastructure projects that have helped to reinvigorate the Empire once again. Though she died recently the young and beloved Challadien III has promised to carry on the legacy of her great mother and despite her youth has shown uncanny wisdom and leadership.
There are rumors that the Empress looks to the west and the kingdom of Milave that had once been part of the Empire but broke free over a century ago. The threat of war is whispered in the taverns and in the halls of the nobility.
The nobles have also been skirmishing to the south into Matheunis The Cold Desert raiding the small settlements there for slaves to aid in the industry of the Empire.
