The Pirates Of Atlantis
The Dominion province of Chagaria was once two separate realms: Chaghanda, a land north of the Akontine River controlled by Lemuria; and Eltaria, the land south of the Akontine, which was part of the Empire of Tellat. After Lemuria and Tellat were defeated at the Battle of Mt. Akontios, Atlantis forced them to cede these lands to the Dominion. By decree of the Atlan they were combined into a single realm, Chagaria. Their former capital cities were razed to the ground and a new seat, Istakhar, built at the mouth of the Akontine by Atlantean engineering and magic.
Chagaria is something of a workhorse province for the Dominion. Its sturdy, hardworking people farm, fish, and labor in the mines to provide food and goods for other parts of the Dominion, and it’s one of the main trade channels between the Sangobaran lands and Tellat. Every day, it seems, a caravan leaves Istakhar to make the sometimes dangerous journey through the Erixian Hills to Tardanum. Despite the best efforts of Atlantean heroes and adventurers, the Hills remain unusually plagued with monsters and fearsome beasts. The current prince, Ashader, was once one of the traders who made that trip; he was chosen for the throne based on his nigh-proverbial honesty after his predecessor died childless in a riding accident.
Since taking over this land, the Dominion has ruthlessly suppressed any use of the Lemurian tongue. It forced the people to learn Atlantean, and as of 12098 BC Lemurian isn’t spoken anywhere in Chagaria. However, some people in the southern part of the land still speak Tellat, in part because doing so makes it easier to trade with Tellat merchants.
