Amroth is the largest population center on the splinter world of Dascen Elur. Its capital city is Port Royal, and is ruled by the s'Ilessid family. The kingdom has wealth, good ships, and skilled men with quality weapons, but often fail to overcome the cleverness of the pirates of Karthan, with whom they have been engaged in a blood feud for seven generations.
Role in the Story
|Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from Peril's Gate.|
Third Age 5670: While in Kewar Tunnel, Arithon learns from the spirit of Avar s'Ffalenn that Mak s'Ahelas interceded in the feud between Amroth and Karthan, forcing peace. The mages of Rauven used grand conjury to lift Karthan out of poverty.
- Before the fateful sea battle at the beginning of Curse of the Mistwraith, Arithon was only known by reputation to the sailors of Amroth. "Arithon's reputation with the sail hands outside of Karthan - his existence was known to them, and rumor could have lent a fearful edge to the gossip -- sailors are about the most superstitious lot going. Not hard to imagine the stories would have been exaggerated. Given the s'Ffalenn reputation on the high seas, adding a son who could wield shadow would have been right terrifying, seen from the outside perspective."
