Lybaras is a city of Nehekhara.
When populated by the living, Lybaras was a city of scholars and engineers, its priest-kings and nobles known for their relatively un-ostentatious style of dress, spending their wealth on scrolls and technology. Lybarans favoured simple dun coloured kilts and sandals with a dark brown cape. [2a]
It is one of the furthest cities from Khemri, on the eastern side of the Worlds Edge Mountains, about 1500 miles distant. To reach it you must travel through the Charnel Valley which is dangerous enough itself.[1a]
In -1750 IC, Lybaras allied with Rasetra against Nagash. [2a] In -1744 IC Rakh-amn-hotep mustered every warrior he could as well as jungle beasts and with King Hekhmenukep and his war machines marched on Khemri. [2b]
The alliance with Rasetra continued after the War against Nagash, the warriors of Lybaras being trained and drilled to become much more effective warriors. The carried out an effective campaign against the rising numbers of raiders plaguing the trade routes across Nehekhara. In -1597 IC when Neferata claimed the throne of Lahmia after the death of her husband, Anhur and Khalida travelled with a formidable force of soldiers to greet her, as did the rulers of the other cities. [3b]
By -1285 IC, the city was ruled by King Pashet and was in a decrepit state, even the famous Palace and collegiums closed to its own citizens. Prince Alcadizzar, fleeing from Lahmia sought aid here but after a month without even gaining an audience with the king, he left for Rasetra. [4a]
Lybaras is most famous for their long dead Queen, High Queen Khalida Neferher. This was her home and is now her resting place.
