The Root of the World
A vast desert dominating the northern-most section of the world, Eretz Is’medi is a harsh land full of elementals and immortals alike. Populated by djinn and demons, visited frequently by angels and devils alike for reasons unknown to men. Some say that they come to know the mortal races, a claim that is somewhat substantiated by the fact that both the deva and the genasi races thrive in this land and may well have been birthed there.
Strangely enough, the central authority of this vast and timeless land seems to revere the fool over all others. The primary diplomatic delegation of Eretz Is’medi is a group called the Jester Entourage, appearing much as a traveling circus might. Despite the serious nature of their station, this group loves to entertain when they enter a settled area from the smallest hermitage to the mightiest kingdom.
