The realm of Shynam, known also as the Land of the Spear, is a large kingdom put haphazardly in between Getory and Sommel. Highly militaristic, the land is ruled by a king who is advised by three generals. The main churches of the land are dedicated to Ishawna and Satiander. The army of the land is comprised primarily of javelin throwers and spearmen. Magic is generally shunned as a crutch. The population is generally extremely centralized in cities with little agriculture practice. This often necessitates trade with Sommel. In constant conflict with the people of Getory, the Shynam people are the main reason Sommel enjoys peace. Utilizing networks of monks as informants and a number of academies for soldier training, Shynam is both organized and effective in its pursuit of warfare.
