Ta-Arma is a nation on the coast of Reaver's Deep. The city of Ta-Arma was the major port for trade between the nations of the Stone Reach and those on the island of Mourin.
The Free Lands of Ta-Arma were conquered after the Lichwars by the Empire of Borthakar after a long bitter struggle. Since then, the resistance has gone underground and is now called the Blue Network. Many native Ta-Armans give whatever aid they can to the Network. They live for the day when they can rise up and eject the orcish invaders from their lands.
The city of Ta-Arma is also known to be the home of a powerful criminal syndicate known only as The Whispers. They were in control of smuggling in and out of the city. According to the rumors, their operations did not skip a step when the orcs invaded. The Whispers simply adapted and learned to deal with the new authorities. It is also whispered that they are strong supporters of the Blue Network.
