Karrnath is an empire. Once led by many kings It became a unified nation during the third age. It is situated in the Northeast of Eberron and is a cold mountainous and barren land. Endless Pine tree forests and poor soil conditions lead to a very hard life. However the people are endlessly proud and patriotic about such things, as survival breeds strong citizens. Karrnath has had many border skirmishes with Chult, as the empire wants the abundant resources found there. While no war is currently being waged, tensions are high as the past winter was particularly harsh. Most food comes in the form of small game such as birds and rabbits. Fishing is a major source of protein for citizens as well. Potatoes, turnips, and radishes are about the only things that can be grown reliably. As such there is quite a bit of trade for the strong lumber and many ores mined in it’s borders. Also the people of Karrnath seem to have a cultural identity of being cursed and controlled by outside forces. Because they feel this is caused by old magic users cavorting with other worldly beings, and the struggle of survival day to day, they have a very martial society with a general distrust of magic.
