Beyond the Inner Sea
Other places of note include Arcadia, a verdant, natural wonderland populated by the proud and vicious folk called skraelings by colonists from the Lands of the Linnorm Kings. Kelesh holds the Padishah Empire, of which Qadira is a satrapy. Tian Xia is an ancient land, and has produced several empires; it is farthest from the Inner Sea, and so the most mysterious. Vudra is composed of more than a hundred mahajanapadas, or semi-independent kingdoms ruled by rajahs in service of the maharajah. The emperor-like maharajah descends from the legendary Khiben-Sald, a godlike hero who united the kingdoms in antiquity and who even spent a decade as an honored guest of the Garundi wizard-king Nex.
Mystics and sages also speak of the Dark Tapestry, a place both mental and physical, called “the darkness between the stars” and home to vast horrors that strike madness into all who behold them. The Tapestry is both millions of miles away and a mere twist and turn in space from Golarion.
