The vast empire of Torphan extends, in territory, over much of western and southern Qaiyore. The exact reaches of its' power are unknown, as no-one is allowed to pass through its' borders. The only recent contact between the Torphani and other nations occurred through the attendance of Torphani sorcerers to the Mir gathering in 1406.
Historically a rival to Cedonian imperial ambitions, Torphan was also thought to have been ravaged by the goblins. However, it seems to have made use of the weakened state of its' neighbours to further it's expansionist goals.
Torphan claims hegemony over the 'rebellious' province of East Torphan (which it lost to the Cedonians). There are also vague claims to the territory of the former realm of Larasia, now part of Parglug.
