Syrkarn is the south-central nation on the continent of Sarlona. It consists of a mostly agrarian society, made up of ogres, eneko ("mongrel ogres"), half-giants and humans.
Although Syrkarn lies right below the Inspired-ruled nation of Riedra, it does not engage in conflict or opposition to the totalitarian psionic state (unlike its neighbor, Adar). The theories on this vary, but include:
- Riedra does not deem Syrkarn worthy of its resources.
- Syrkarn's society and technology (magical or otherwise) are not advanced enough to threaten Riedra.
- The Inspired leadership fear the demonic Overlord rumored to be contained below the surface of Syrkarn.
