This history of Dezeldenia is one of cruelty, disease, and death.
The land of Dezeldenia lays to the North of Mirlethia, separated from their neighbor by Targin’s Rot. The river continually flows with blackened water, yet is commonly traversed by Mirthlethians and Dezeldenians alike as they plunder resources and take slaves from their neighbors. The two human lands have been at war longer than even most elves remember, though neither has managed to expand far into their enemies territory. Those that have founded settlements on the opposite side of the river rarely see their work last more than a decade before it is reclaimed by it’s native inhabitants. Targin’s Rot seems to continually reintroduce itself as the eternal border between the two peoples.
Dezeldenians trace their history back to the time of demons. Many believe that they were Braxult’s original creation, making them the first of Samsarras’s people. They feel a close kinship to mother death, as well as her sister Drexath, the demon of disease. When the dragons came to the world, Dezeldenia was settled by the swamp wyrms. These snake-like dragons were largely apathetic, content to languish in the festering land of swamps. While some of their kind have amassed Dezeldenian worshippers, many more of the humans continue to worship the gods of their ancestors. To this day, many Dezeldenians still venerate demon kind with Braxult and Drexath being the preferred deities.
