Numenera Up North
Navarene is a large, prosperous kingdom in the Steadfast. “Wealthy as a Navarene merchant” is saying familiar to all citizens of the nine kingdoms, and is rarely said without a smirk or a sneer. Navarene sits between the rest of the the Steadfast and the Beyond, so it has many defensive forts and war-castles along its northern border.
To the west of the kingdom is The Westwood, an ancient and vast forest. Also in the west is the near-impenetrable city of Bodrov – home to just one-thousand Navarene citizens – where the Vacant Palace can be found.
The south of the kingdom is largely made up of farmland and is also where the city of Shallamas – a trade city and notorious haven for thieves – can be found.
