History, and Capital City

Capital City: The Inner City of Rabance

Omac began life as the small trading post of Rabance, first established by the first settlers in the region. It sits upon the Rabance Island, a small island of roughly 1,000 km2 located at where the Lake Narbara meets the River Narota, which will then flow to Nareen Bay and into the Nar Sea. The island of Rabance is itself split by the river, creating two halfs that the the City of Rabance now straddles. It is key to controlling the flow of trade in and out of Lake Nabara.

Over the years, more and more settlements began to come to the island. They settled in the hills on the west, on the shores of the east, the forests in the south and on the flatflands in the North. Over time, these all grew into cities in their own right, five in fact. As their city borders grew closer and closer, they finally merged 400 years ago into the Great City of Omac, which now covers the entire island. The name comes from Rabance's Lord Mayor, Rhond Omac, who led the formalised joining of the cities.


It is a city of cities, with the City of Rabance in the centre as the capital. As a nation, it focuses on trade. It exports minerals from the hills and transports them down the river to the sea. And anyone attempting to pass through the river can either go around the island or pass through the gates that guard the shortcut through the island.
