The Avatar-Emperor – A 13th Age Icon

From the forthcoming Cloak & Coin campaign setting.

Arsha Nar, Avatar-Emperor of Iesadhe

“There are no gods. There is only Dhom.”

The 17th Theon, Arsham Nar is the Avatar-Emperor of the Theocracy of Iesadhe. Granted a semblance of immortality by the Soulshard embedded in his palm, he lives with the memories of his predecessors. This has proven to be both a boon and a curse. Immortality has come with madness. Even though the power of the Theocracy has waned, Arsham Nar remains one of the most powerful men in the known world.

Though not as expansionist as some of his predecessors, the 17th Theon of Iesadhe continues to be driven by the need to maintain both empire and faith. He has proclaimed a desire to establish a peace with the Thar warlords on his western border and the rebellious Asver clans. Neither has come to fruition, however, and many believe these to be empty words.

Arsham Nar is found in the Citadel of Light, an alabaster temple complex within the capital city of Iesadhe. The Avatar-Emperor tolerates the other Icons. His closest ally is Caile Greyve but only to the extent that both are driven to keep others from discovering the lost magical legacies of the past. His greatest foe is the Guild of Weavers.

The Avatar-Emperor is considered an ambiguous icon, allowing a player to spend 1, 2 or 3 points if you have a positive or conflicted relationship; and 1 or 2 points if you have a negative relationship.
