Indisar

Indisar is one of the Shifting Isles, originally the southeastern area of the land before the Breaking of the World. A desert wasteland, Indisar is under monarchic rule. The Indisari shun the Seven known gods and worship a god of their own creation.

Though in constant movement due to the shift cycle, Indisar remains almost entirely below the equator, thus getting the most direct sunlight. The higher temperatures render the land mostly desert and dunes, interspersed with a few oases (the largest being the site of the Imperial City).

The Indisari people tend to be shorter in height and darker of skin. Like the Tanasians, the Indisari are polygamists, with men permitted to have multiple wives, though all marriages are arranged. Women are considered property, and must be veiled at all times, the colors of their garments indicating their status: white for Temple virgins, black for married women, and red for unmarried women. Men, on the other hand, may wear garments of whatever color they like, with the richness and variety of colors often an indicator of one’s wealth.

Indisar’s exports include gold (the purest and most sought-after in the world), exotic spices, and precious gems (particularly emeralds, rubies, and sapphires, mined from the mountain range in the north of the desert land).
