The Ebon Empire
Gara Astesh is the underworld beneath Astesh. An extensive network of natural caverns, ancient mines and carved tunnels. The Gara is home to the descendants of a rebellion. It is also known as the land of the dead. In fact many of the living denizens of the Gara disguise themselves as demons and the dead to mislead and terrify their victims in the Talik
The Gara is home to an assortment of creatures, alive and dead. Drow, orks, and hobgoblins make their living underground, venturing out of the dark only to terrorize and raid surface dwellers.
It is said that the gods dwell in the dark as well. And many temples have been set up near openings to the Gara.
