Nations from the Trolloc Wars
Nations from the Trolloc Wars until Artur Hawkwing’s empireArtur Hawkwing conquered and unified the Westlands into a single empire; this empire subsequently fragmented during the War of the Hundred Years. Before Hawkwing’s conquest, which began c. FY 943 (approximately 1,150 years before the present), the Westlands were divided among many small nations. The following 29 existed within 100 years of the end of the Trolloc Wars:
Abayan, Aldeshar, Balasun, Basharande, Caembarin, Dal Calain, Darmovan, Dhowlan, Elan Dapor
Elsalam – One of the most powerful nations of its day, it encompassed the western two thirds of Arafel, nearly all of Kandor, and the land all the way south to the first major tributary of the River Erin. It included the great fortified cities of Chachin and Shol Arbela, though we do not know which was its capital, nor whether either of those cities bore the same names during the Free Years as they would in the New Era.
Esandara, Farashelle, Fergansea, Hamarea, Ileande, Indrahar, Kharendor, Khodomar, Masenashar, Moreina, Nerevan, Oburun, Oman Dahar, Roemalle
Rhamdashar – One of the most powerful nations of its day, it encompassed the whole of the New Era nations of Shienar and Malkier as well as the eastern third of Arafel. It included the great fortified cities of Malkier and Fal Moran, though we do not know which was its capital, nor whether either of those cities bore the same names during the Free Years as they would in the New Era.
Shandalle – A small nation principally known as Artur Hawkwing’s home, and the base of his early military expansion.
Shiota – A nation roughly corresponding to present-day Altara.
