History

In -1147 IC, Neferata arrived in the city, on her way to Sartosa and made an ally of the Dowager Concubine, the ruler of the city in all but name. The Dowager gave her a northern slave, Ilsa, who spoke the laguage used in her destination. [2a]

Ships from Cathay appeared in the southern oceans in around 1150 IC, sparking a fierce rivalry with the cities merchants with the elves of Ulthuan also trying to keep the sea trade for themselves. The sultan therefore dispatched an expedition to try and seek a direct land route to the far off spice lands but they were unable to do so, being forstalled by the Al Saurim of Zlatlan. [3a]
