The cosmopolitan capital of Taneria.

New Omnikron is the capital of Taneria, named after the old city state whose survivors founded the desert nation.

History

After the tragedy that destroyed the city-state of Omnikron the survivors, led by their young queen, travelled east of Volcove to settle in the desert, building a new city called New Omnikron and a new nation that they named Taneria.  Her descendants have ruled the nation ever since.

For a short time the war-hungry young monarch Svar Redden managed to conquer the city, adding it to his growing "Volcovian Kingdom," but the Tanerians were quick to take measures against him, though they proved unnecessary.  Later New Omnikron became the last line of defense against the pushing hordes of Heretics intent on taking over the desert.  With aid from their many holds, and new Votaar allies, the Heretics were repelled for a time, though they eventually withdrew mysteriously.

Culture

New Omnikron is the greatest melting pot of all the cities in Taneria.  Any type of citizen of the desert nation can be found in the city.  The slave trade is common within the city, as is an ever-growing warrior culture, courtesy primarily of the warrior tribes who have joined the Tanerian Empire and the visiting Votaar.  These groups have greatly enhanced the practices of bloodsport within the city.

Religion

The Tanerians brought the worship of the angels with them from Omnikron, and due to the harshness of the desert, focused their worship to Sachiel, the Great Angel of Water.  While Angelicism is the most common faith within New Omnikron, the warriors of the desert and Votar have brought their own faiths to the city as well, and there are other practices as well, such as genie worship, elemental shamanism, and stranger practices.
