The Sultanate of Lysia is a country in northeastern Elyzia. It was founded in 37 AF when Lyss the Great attacked the Vaenyrian colony of Daria. By 41 AF, he had conquered the entire colony, and declared himself Sultan. The Lysians are descendents of the Elders, an ancient race of men from the Alaq Mountains who worship the Thirteen, referred to in Lysia as the Gods. Lysia has frequently been at odds with Vaenyr, its neighbor to the south, and in 407 AF Vaenyr conquered the sultanate.
