Minara

A country of serious arcanophobes. It used to be part of the nation of Kiris, which was ruled by necromancers and had a nasty habit of using its citizens for experiments. The Minarans rebelled and eventually succeeded in their rebellion through the use of an artifact, the Stone of Interdiction, that turned their country into a dead magic zone. Over time, the Stone's power faded and now it only negates magic from the schools of necromancy and evocation.
