War of the Burning Sands
As far as most Athasians are concerned, Tyr has always existed upon the Tablelands. Certainly it has endured through the entire Desert Age, and even with the fall of its sorcerer-king, it seems likely to endure for centuries to come. And throughout all the long years of its existence, it was a city-state enslaved.
That has all changed.
In the courts of the other city-states, rumors of the overthrow of King Kalak the Merciless are only whispered, but in Tyr, the repercussions howl through the streets. Many scheme to succeed Kalak though Tithian currently holds the throne. Meanwhile, the Templars and other power groups struggle to keep the city-state from disintegrating into anarchy at the hands of people eager to enjoy their freedom. Nobles and merchants clamor for influence, and commoners and freed slaves openly celebrate, challenging civic authority and social boundaries at every turn.
