Omen - The Omen Republic
- Parent: The Sung Lands
The land of Omen is centered on the ancient fortress of Equanimity.
Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn
Where is the boy who looks after the sheep?
Under a haystack fast asleep
- A taunt of the beastmen of Khor
During the Long Peace, the Fortress of Equanimity fell into disrepair. Although considered impregnable, it was also unquestionably “out of the way,” overlooking a river gorge near the borders with Parsha and Uruq. In 432 Sealed, the Emperor of Ashtur granted the fortress to the monks of the Pale Spider sect of Darûm. They were able to build a small community there in support of the monastery, which, after the Baneful Chorus, began to grow. Now the riverlands beneath the fortress are home to refugees of many lands, and its unassailable heights serve to protect them in times of trouble.
