Dark Sun: Warriors of the Wasteland
City States of the Tyr Region
Terrible Defilers of immense power rule all but one of the city-states. These mighty spellcasters have held their thrones for centuries; no one alive remembers a time before the Sorcerer-kings. Some claim to be gods, and some claim to serve gods. Some are brutal oppressors, where others are more subtle in their tyranny. The Sorcerer-kings govern through priesthoods or bureaucracies of greedy, ambitious Templars, lesser Defilers who can call upon the kings’ powers. Only in the city-state of Tyr does a glimmer of freedom beckon, and powerful forces already conspire to extinguish it.
