12.8.99 Nazedha, the Last Bastion of Darkness
Situated like a predatory spider in the far reaches of the western sea, the city of Nazedha forms the capital and center of the seafaring Nazedha Empire. Situated on the largest of the ancestral islands that the original Nazetu called their homes, the city is a teeming, wretched sprawl that deals in slaves, alcohol, narcotics, and other dark and sordid commodities. The Empire itself carries a mighty legacy; born from the first servants that ever served the Dark Lady in this Mortal Epoch, they take to their calling with ferocity and cunning. Asserting sole dominion over the western seas, and much of the south and east, the Nazedha hold ties to Slaver's Isle, with whom they do much of their trade. The inner city contains a number of religious buildings in honor to the Goddess of Corruption, and at its very center stands the legendary Dark Spire, the last bastion from which the city gains its title. Any non-Nazetu are second-class citizens at best; the Nazedha are intensely xenophobic and likely to enslave, murder, and kill anyone outside of their race and Empire.
