Ruled by the Yuan-ti purebloods, this land of jungles and death is populated largely by slaves, who are bred to be sacrificed. After the death of Szilak at the hands of Kish, the Yuan-ti dedicated themselves to reviving him. It is believed by the priesthood that he could be brought back by a great amount of power – power that they draw from the blood of the dead. As such, the Yuan-ti carefully breed their slaves in order to maintain a high population, whilst still sacrifice hundreds every day across their domain. Their hatred of Numidians knows no bounds.
The priesthood also has the snakekin, an order of druids who seek to draw ever closer to Szilak by imitating him, and the ruler of Sinshaara is the Archdruid, a being of immense power, said to take the form of a basilisk at will.
Deep in the jungles of Sinshaara live the tribes of Savage Halflings, who launch raids on the Yuan-ti and survive in one of the most hostile environs in the world. Their burrows are labyrinthine, and they are deeply xenophobic – distrusting of strangers. They are said to consume the flesh of their captives, though those outcasts who have been encountered have seemed to be likable and civilized – until they murdered their new friends in their sleep and took all that they owned.
