Naesh'om is the westernmost region of Oriund, and is made up of a number of elven nations. The region is named after the naesh'om elven people, who first settled the land in the midst of the Eternal Age.

Geographical Features

Kaia Yuimé (Dream Mirror)
The ruins of this ancient city can be found within the Ola Kanshi, along the coast beside the Ne'tamea.

Koai Toúr (Ancient Home)
This ancient city once ruled over all of Naesh'om. It is found along the Nagasuuré.

Nagasuuré (Hearth-flow))
Running from springs in the Ola Kanshi, and then along the northern edge of the central grasslands, the Nagasuuré is the second longest river in Naesh'om. Naesh'omin history dictates that the naesh'omin elves first settled along this river, and the great city of Koai Toúr can still be found on either side of the ancient waterway.

Ne'tamea (Soul Rest)
The bay which Kaia Yuimé overlooks, in the Northwest of the land. Naesh'omin elves believe that the souls of the dead dwell in peace in the waters of the bay.

Ola Kanshi (Hills of Sorrow)
Filling most of the northern third of Naesh'om, the Ola Kanshi still exhibit signs of the fall of a united Naesh'om. Some of the heroes of the Teakai Naida (Battle of Tears) have "exiled" themselves to remote parts of the Ola Kanshi, and the ruins of ancient fortresses and cities remain.

Ola Tesu (Iron Heights)
So named for the rich iron deposits found here, the Ola Tesu are a rugged range of sheer faced hills in the extreme south of Naesh'om, stretching along the entire south coast, and extending north in places as far as the Utai'keiwn.

Shimi'keiwn (Lonely River)
The shimi'keiwn flows through rugged lands of the Ola Tesu, forming the border non-elf peoples at the extreme Southeast corner of the land.

Uta'keiwn (River of Song)
The most important river of Naesh'om, the Uta'keiwn has its spring beyond the region. It first skirts the northern edges of the Ola Tesu before nourishing the entire central grasslands.


Population: Approx 1.2 million (92% naesh'omin elf, 6% dwarf, 1% hobgoblin, 1% other)

Military (probably obsolete, but not yet deleted)

Su'utein (Land Forces)

Structure: The basic unit of the su'utein is the ca'lan, formed of nine soldiers, including one [corporal] and one [lance-corporal]. Between five and nine ca'lan form a we'ralan, which includes a [lieutenant] and a [sergeant]. Between nine and thirteen we'relan form a y'lana, commanded by a [colonel]. Y'lana can be combined in any number (but always at least two) to form a druus, or army. A druus is commanded by a [general].

Unit Name # of Soldiers
ca'lan 9
we'ralan 45 - 81
y'lana 585 - 729
druus 1170 +

Unit Types: The su'utein is made up of a variety of different units.

In times of war, the su'utein is expanded to include civilian levies. These conscripts are usually organized into [conscript archers] and [conscript spears]. Conscripts rarely have the expertise to be involved in the more professional units of the permanent su'utein. Many conscripts are used as part of logistical efforts, even when not in times of war.

Naesh'omin su'alani: (Lit. flaming blades of naesh'om) A single we'relan exists of these elite troops. The su'alani are equipped with flaming longswords and enchanted suits of mithral chainmail. Masters of both sword and magic, they function as a unique mix of artillery, heavy infantry, and light cavalry. Though they do not ride beasts into battle, they have access to spells which increase their speed such that they can outrun mundane cavalry for a time. The naesh'omin have used the su'alani to best effect in battle by using them as a sort of flying reserve, not restricted to any one part of the battlefield, but free to move to where they are needed most.
Naesh'omin su'alani are generally fighter/wizard multiclass characters.
