Lossand is a nation on the Dayside of Taldain. Residents of Lossand are called Lossandins. It is notable for being the home of the Diem. Most of the events of White Sand take place in Lossand.

Geography

Lossand is situated on the southern side of Dayside. Its borders form the shape of a wedge, stretching from KraeDa in the north to the southern Border Ocean in the south. Lossand is bordered by uninhabited deep sand to the east, the Kerla to the north, and Kerzta to the west. The Ry'Do Ali River runs directly through the center of the nation and is joined by the Nor'Tallon River before emptying into the ocean.[1]

Cities

  • Kezare, the capital, is located in the northern half of Lossand, where the Ry'Do Ali and Nor'tallon Rivers meet.
  • Lraezare lies on the coast at the mouth of the Ry'Do Ali River.

History

Relations between Lossand and Kerzta were often strained in the past, primarily due to religious rhetoric from the Kerztian clergy who claim that Lossand is a desert because it is cursed by the Sand Lord. The Kerztian priest DaiKeen is particularly opposed to Lossand's acceptance of sand mastery. This left the two nations frequently in a state of war with one another.

Tensions were eased two hundred years ago when the high merchant was selected as the new king of Kerzta, but growing support behind Kerzta's high priest has cast doubt on the possibility of continued peace.

Politics

Lossand is ruled by the Taishin--a council of the eight Profession heads, each representing a different sector of Lossand's economy. The eight Professions are established and regulated by the Taishin themselves, the head of each Profession being appointed in different ways. After most of the sand masters was massacred in the Kerla, the other Taishin tried to disband the Diem, but in the end Kenton managed to save his Profession.[2]

The eight professions are:

The Diem

The position of Lord Admiral is a figurehead position without any power, other than a vote in the council, and in fact is regarded as more of a punishment than an honor. The true leadership of the Helm belongs to the Shipowners' Circle.

Culture

Lossand contains a mix of many cultures. Many citizens of Lossand are ethnically Kerztian, and entire communities of Darksiders can be found. The most unique characteristic of Lossandin culture is the presence of the Diem of sand masters who, in the past, contributed to the nation's defense and infrastructure. While belief in the Sand Lord is not uncommon, there are no dominant organized religions.
