Arkhosia

The great empire of the noble Dragonborn, Arkhosia was known to have spanned large portions of the known realms. It is said that Arkhosia was founded at the once-great city of Io’vanthor in the arid lands of the south. Largely worshippers of Bahamut, the empire expanded its territories with the aim of bringing civilization, knowledge and security to untamed places and ignorant peoples. It expanded mostly through peaceful means, rather than by force. Within a mere few centuries, Arkhosia came to rule large portions of the known realms. Many tribes and nations of other races deemed it better to live within the borders of the powerful empire, than to fend for themselves in a dark world.

As their borders expanded, the would eventually come in contact and inevitable conflict with Bael Turath. Legends say that these wars lasted for hundreds if not close to a thousand years. Eventually, both empires fell with ravaged lands, and the Dragonborn and Tieflings became wanderers in the ruins of their own making. It would be a thousand years before another power would rise in the form of the Empire of Nerath.

As with Bael Turath, there are ruins in the Nentir Vale that can be traced back to Arkhosia.
