The Tides of Shadow
Once a thriving merchant realm of independent citystates united only by a lust for gold, Sembia is now part of the growing Empire of Netheril. This long tradition of trade and commerce remains the central unifying principal for this vassal state; Sembia is Netheril’s trade portal to the rest of Faerûn. The free cities of Urmlaspyr and Daerlun are only nominally under Sembian control. After winning its war against Sembia forty years ago, Cormyr insisted that they remain neutral.
