Thell has been actively attempting to expand into the southern wastes, east of the central divide. The wastes are wild, populated largely by small enclaves of subsistence farmers, local warlords, and roving bands of gnolls. Their border with Perinia is short, but tense. The unclaimed hills to the east of Thell are home to a number of dwarven city-states, who refuse to allow either nation to lay claim to their heights. Thell is currently ruled by King Andral.
