Kalesh Package

Located in the western-central part of Deoghar, Ka’lesh competes with Subatar to be the most prosperous realm on the continent. Much of its wealth derives from controlling the large central jungle (which it calls the Ka’lesh Jungle). However, the woodcutters, fruit-pickers, and hunters who make their living in the jungle must always be wary, for even today many dangerous beasts and monsters dwell beneath the emerald canopy. The capital of Ka’lesh is Johorr, the largest city on the continent. Built on a cliffside in the middle of the jungle, it overlooks a large, impressive waterfall.

The Op’tai River is navigable almost to the falls; from the stopping point goods are carried by cart, porter, or beast of burden into the city. The city itself is a warren of squat buildings with rounded, dome-like roofs. There are only a few large, easily-used roads, and only here and there does a tower or large building serve as a landmark to help travelers. Despite the best efforts of the often-exasperated Governor Chored, thieves are commonplace in the city; wise visitors keep a very close eye on all their possessions.

Like Kaphtor and Lemuria, Ka’lesh is a society where assassination is regarded as an acceptable (if not pleasant) method of resolving differences and climbing the ladder. Ka’leshi assassins are masters of poisons and venoms, scorning less subtle methods of killing. A deft poisoning often earns the assassin not the anger of society but a subdued admiration for the quality of his work.
