Emesa gives its name to the northernmost hundred of Hohnamshire in the Kingdom of Rethem. Temporal power now resides with the Warriors of Mameka but the small town has a rich history.  Its annual Beast Fair sees whale oil from Alesen, and the fruits of the Peran forests, and trades from the Kuboran Moot, exchanged for the finer products of southern civilisation.  Apart from the Beast Fair the south knows little of Emesa, though it’s boast of being the ‘gateway to Peran’ attracts a slow stream of adventurers and fools who believe the wilderness will make them rich. More often it makes them dead.
