Midretasso is the ancient civilization of Corundy that succeeded and inherited the rich tradition of Kalama. Midretasso was ruled by over-kings of Midrinksi extraction, with priests and philosophers of Kalaman heritage. Midretasso grew to rule most of the eastern Pallathantic Region in ancient times. The unstoppable armies and navies of the Yophenthean Empire defeated the Midretassene Empire through a series of battles, most notably the Battle of Siul where the Yophenthean navy and naval allies defeated the Midretassene Navy. By the end of the sixth century, Yophenthea had conquered all Midretasso. The heritage of Midretasso, along with the much older Kalaman civilization, survives in Corundy and especially eastern Corundy (Zamiria) as part of the Tassan Civilization.
The Midrinksi Tribes of western Throvy entered in successive waves into eastern Kalama around the eighth century before Salmakhamer. Midrinksi tribes through conquest and settlement spread from Throvy into eastern Corundy and thence to central and western Corundy by the time of Salmakhamer. For the next eight hundred years, the Midrinksi tribes dwelt alongside the remnants of Kalaman civilization that persist to this day. Midrinksi city-states expanded their power through these centuries through conquest and treaty. A blending of Midrinksi and Kalaman culture established the foundation of later Midretassene Civilization, with great honor given to the much more ancient Kalaman contribution. In the early second century before Salmakhamer, the Midrinksi city-state of Flampesha, united all of eastern Corundy. By the mid second century before Salmakhamer, the Jaithan power of the city-state of Cetibrymio (Kathyabrumya), came to conflict with Flampesha. The two cities eventually united, combining the military power of the Midrinksi tribes with the religious and scientific knowledge of the Jaithan people into the core state that became Midretasso. By the time of the first century after Salmakhamer, Midretasso had united all of the Corundian Peninsula under the rule of the first Over-King, Uturnus. Ancient Midretassenes developed a powerful empire that spread rulership throughout the Corundian peninsula, Throvy, Ithatia, the Shadevan Delta, Agogia, western Erserce, and Dúrandwor. Midretassenes employed a well organized military and wielded powerful necromancy. In 287 AI, the Midretassene Navy defeated the Elystrine Navy in the Battle of Deliopian Strait. In 415 AI, the Midretassene army defeated an alliance of Moigthe in southern Pytharnia in the Battle of Curchása, thus securing Midretassene control of Dúrandwor. By the late fifth century, Midretasso came up against the power of the Yophenthean Empire, with both empires striving to exert greater influence over the Moigthe Tribes of Pytharnia. In 513 AI, the Battle of Siul saw the Yophenthean defeat of the Midretassene Empire and marked the beginning of the decline and conquest of Midretasso in the same century.

The Tassan Language is the direct descendant of the ancient Midretassene Language. The Throvian Language is related to Tassan and Midretassene as all these languages descended from the ancient language of the Midrinksi Tribes. Unlike the Kalaman Language which is a Jathya-Dhumi tongue, Midretassene is derived from the Gwenyan Language Family and is distantly related to Ersercese, Ithatian, and other Gwenyan languages. The Midretassene Language borrowed many words from ancient Kalaman that were then disseminated to other languages like Dúrandworese and Throvian. The modern Dúrandworese Language has a strong borrowing of words from ancient Midretassene due to the period of Midretassene rule. Midretassene is no longer spoken, but is studied by scholars and librarians. The modern Jaithan Language which is descended from the Kalaman Language has some borrowings from Midretassene.
Necromancy in Ancient Midretasso
Midretasso is often commonly remembered today for its practice of necromancy. The Midretassene Empire did not originally approve of necromancy, but many practitioners adopted necromancy from the Vimalian necromancers whose tradition stemmed back many centuries to the time of the plague zombies used in battle against the ancient Neptultchi. Vimalians eventually reduced the practice of necromancy to near extinction, but the Midretassenes accepted it begrudgingly and ultimately employed it in warfare. The Midretassene tolerance of necromancy was one of the reasons that ancient Yophentheans cited to justify their conquest of the Midretassene Empire.
Religion of Ancient Midretasso
Midretassenes worshiped their own pantheon of Isxinthion Gods. They also worshiped various lesser diabolic divinities. Additional divinities and practices were drawn from the nomadic steppes and Kalama.
