Zandri is a city within Nehekhara, far to the south. It is part of the empire of the Tomb Kings of Khemri and was the first city built.

The city of Zandri was dedicated to the god Ualatp, the vulture god.

History

It was built by King Zakash and is said that letters and writing were invented here. It is located about 600 miles north west of Khemri in the delta region of the Great Mortis River. It is within 100 miles of the Swamp of Terror and as such faced terrible pestilence after the spell cast by Nagash desolated the land. Like its sister city, Numas, it suffered greatly when the lands were poisoned and its crops died. Although Zandri had access to the coast and sea foods its population suffered horribly.

Zandri was first conquered by Settra, like the rest of Nehekhara. Eventually the city rebelled and followed Prince Ahtaf I, who later became king. Later King Khetep conquered Zandri, like all of Nehekhara, and its people prospered like never before under his rule.

After Nagash came to power, Zandri, and the cities of Numas, Mahrak, Lybaras and Rasetra allied in an attempt to end his tyranny (although Zandri and Numas were initially his allies). Zandri provided deadly archers to the alliance, instrumental in the great battles. Eventually, the alliance fell apart, fighting amongst themselves, and the cities returned.

Zandri was conquered three more times, by King Alkhazzar II and then Alcadizaar the Conqueror. Finally, with the second rising of Settra, Zandri came under his rule permanently, Zandri's Tomb Kings awaiting the call to rise again.

Notable Incidents during Settra's Rule

  • Year 275 - There was strife in the Necropolis of Zandri.
  • Year 1112 - Zandri and Numas rebelled, attempting to rid themselves of Settra, but failed.
  • Year 2588 - The desert dwellers came and desecrated the Necropolis of Zandri and slew many Liche Priests.
  • Year 2603 - An army of numerous armoured warriors came from the direction of the desert dwellers and fought against the rulers of Zandri, despoiling the city and stealing scrolls.
  • Year 3656 - The Tilites came and despoiled the tombs of the Necropolis of Zandri. Two kings fought, King Behedesh and King Memnesh.

Later History

King Amenemhetum, who built vast fleets to sail and conquer the seas in the name of Ualatrp the Vulture God. Under his rule the city became extremely wealthy [2a] and he also created the Standard of the Sands, giving his forces an advantage over their enemies. Later, one of the inscriptions in his tomb was translated by Alun Gartner, a denizen of the Old World.

He remained content to be the ruler of the seas as the other kings fought each other for dominance. His ships roam across the world seeking treasure and many pirate vessels have been destroyed attacking them, wrecks of many littering the Mortis Delta. [2a]

In 2480 IC Count Schuvaltz, ruler of one of the Border Princes led an expedition to plunder the tombs of Zandri which reached the necropolis of Prince Anera-kotrak before the denzins began to awaken and attacked the invaders. Although initially the mercenaries led by the Count fought their way through the undead, the were quickly overwhelmed and their bones left to bleach in the sun. [1a]
