Empire of Turin
The Empire of Turin was an oppressive regime that ruled over The Ashen Coast and beyond for over 30 years. The Ashen Coast was considered the northernmost extreme of the Empire, governed by the foul Tyrmund from Thunaar. Although the Empire reigned for decades, it’s influence was only felt on the Coast for 8 years. Much of that time was spent at war. Thus, whilst the Coast still bears the scars of the Empire, the evil ways of the Empire were more a moment in recent history rather than a generation of calamity.

Formally, despite being overthrown by the wizard Rialto the Empire still exists. However, in practise it is more a collection of increasingly independent states as Rialto slowly consolidates power back to the lands of Turin once again.
