The Abyss of Thuvia
Merab is the largest city state of Thuvia. It was the only port city that managed to remain stable and operating throughout the entirety of the war. Many refugees fled here and the church of Kamus sold many of them into slavery, helping to keep the city afloat through the cost of the war and loss of most of the country’s resources.
The church of Sarenrae, which had several small chapters within the city before the war, sheltered as many as they could without judgement, from poor from the city, to fallen house lords and their soldiers, and refugees from all over the country – even going as far as to buy many children from the slavery. Their mercy during those dark times lead most of the population to convert to the religion and they grew in power and wealth tremendously. They run a school and a hospital in the city in manors that were donated to them by noble houses that lost all of their heirs to the fighting.
After nearly two hundred years of war, it was thought by many that the city would be the sole victor of the war. The valley was uninhabitable, and most of the remaining bandits and fighters were driven into the Barrier Wall mountains where the Nexian war-beasts pray upon them. The civil unrest in the city was calmed when their King Ilepodus III converted to the Church of Sarenrae and announced his intent to rebuild The Lost City, and now the city lives in relative peace.
