ROSHNASH
Size: Capital City

RULER
- Grumpsh Niko of Roshnash (Warleader)
- Muz of Roshnash (High Shaman)

ALLEGIENCE
Roshnash is an independent Orcish City State, and owes no allegiance to any other state or nation. However, the two founders (Muz of Chungash and Skurl of Ashul) made sure to secure strong ties with their home City-States during the founding of their colony. This has made Roshnash a significant Orcish port-of-call on the lost continent.

ABOUT THE CITY
One of the first-generation settlements on the Lost Continent, Roshnash has near to forty years of history, making it the second-oldest new city on the continent (behind Longshore, the eldest). It is also one of the biggest, rivalled only by Longshore and Gallothar in terms of size and population. It has a fully constructed siege wall, a sizable port, a large castle for the ruling family, and (of course) the Arena.

Roshansh was founded by two legends-in-their-own-time amongst the southern orcs, Roshnash was imagined as the perfect marriage of new and old ways. Here in this new land, the Orcs could once again expand as they had done in the ancient tribal days, without concern for politics or borders getting in their way. It was a place where the orcish traditions of honour, survival against the wild, and living in harmony with the six elements could be realized while still building a modern trade economy and peaceful ties to other nations.

That dream is still alive and well to this day in Roshnash, and the most recent New Years Festival saw teams from every major Orcish nation as well as every significant city on the Lost Continent send teams. It would not be unreasonable to suggest that Roshnash is currently stands as the most powerful colony on the continent.
