Long ago the disparate human tribes of the central plains were united under the warrior king Alexander Darune. Centuries later his descendant Calaron Darune became know as the first emperor when he forsook his warrior past and used diplomacy to strengthen the kingdom and began forming alliances with the neighboring nations. In the generations that followed Darunia and the Nerath Empire grew in prominence and power and ushered in a golden age. Several hundred years ago the Darune bloodline came to an end and Duke Salazar Benthic was choosen to become the new emperor. His descendants still rule the empire, but that was seen as the beginning of the end by some scholars. Today the kingdom is in decline and the empire is nearly defunct.
