Krec, or Krecia, is the surviving remnants of the Cestese Empire. The remaining territories, with the exception of Abofastios, were conquered by elves or orcs. Over the next hundred years Krec slowly pushed forward, allying itself with the human populations rebelling under orcish or elven control. Though it’s goal was to recreate the empire, the royal line was broken and control severed. As humans once again rose to prominence within Der’ai, it was clear that new nations were emerging which would not fly under the Krecian bannor.
