Empire of Nerath
The Empire of Nerath once was the largest human realm the world had ever seen. Great cities grew everywhere, trade abounded, and the lands were protected by the Lords of Nerath, a council of nobles leading capable armies along the realm’s borders. But, like all things, even empires must die. When the time came, the Nerathi Empire left behind desperate people trying to hold on to their fallen civilization. Today, most cities have become independent city-states, loosely allied with other towns and villages of the surrounding area. Because no-one patrols the old lands anymore, bandits and monsters are everywhere, threatening and robbing people.
What happened to the Empire of Nerath? Why did it fall? Was it invaded by another realm? Did its rulers become corrupt and cause a civil war? Did the gods destroy it because people lived wasteful lives? Get at least two of your classmates to join you in answering this. Your answer must be at least 150 words long.
