The Narsadese Capital of Talil is famous for its merchants

Talil is the historic and modern capital of Narshad. The name Talil is thought to come from an ancient Cospian word that means 'for the god.' Talil rests on a slight prominence north of the Th'abi Wushal Hills and south of the Stream of Yaharaphi that flows into the sea. Talil rests about 5.5 mi (9km) from the seashore where it was historically safer from direct piracy. Its access to the sea is provided through the small city of Kuphah Heshober. In ancient times during some Narshadite dynasties, Talil was the royal seat. Today, Talil is the seat of the Shu'ah, the sovereign legislative body of the Narsadese Republic and meets regularly in the Jehimzalya Palace. The population of Talil proper is estimated at over 800,000 and is the sixth largest in the old world. The explosive growth of the city after the establishment of the Narsadese Republic was due in large part to the great influx of refugees and expatriots from the Gorcorumbese Empire. The demonym is Talilite. The city of Talil has vied with Syre for thousands of years to be the most important on the island of Narshad.

The Aio is a subversive agent of the gods of chaos who works to spearhead an invasion from the Realm of Chaos.

The Aio

Before an invasion of the Communions or the Throes, an aio may arrive and seek out the greatest enemies of Chaos — to present himself as an unquestioning servant with the hidden aim of corrupting his new master, or more often, mistress. An aio appears as a powerfully strong man, completely bald with irises of orange-red. The voice, manner, and appearance of an aio are thoroughly handsome and soothing—and they often seek to seduce women of high station and influence. Like their masters, the communions, the aio are averse to clothing—they wear but one type of vestment only to fulfill their ends—and such vestments are dazzlingly beautiful and enchanted. Such a vestment is called a jisseen — it appears as many garments, but in fact is one intricately fabricated piece that wields powerful magics on those who glimpse it and also serves as magical armor to an aio.

List of Known and Reputed Papyri

Here is a list of some of the well-known and documented papyri along with papyri that are referenced in reputable ancient works, but remain undiscovered. The supreme joy of any papyrologist lies in discovering a here-to-fore unknown papyrus of a non-extant text. In this list 'papyrus' is used for any scroll. The scroll ('volumen') format was the dominant form until the invention of the codex around 670 AI in Corundy or Mirrhaimo. By around 780, new scrolls were rarely made. (See Full Article...)
