Once the greatest of the River Kingdoms, Numeria today is a land of grim barbarians and dark magic, its fierce people ruled over by a cabal of tainted magicians devoted to artifacts they do not understand. These secrets are not of this world, brought to Golarion with the dramatic crash of a colossal metal mountain from the sky, which scattered pieces of itself across the country. While its barren landscape leaves little for trade, Numeria is famous in more civilized southern lands as the primary source of skymetals, seven rare metallic alloys sheared from the metal mountain that fell from the sky. Numeria’s capital of Starfall is a grim and brutal place, a decadent mockery of the royal courts of the south. Here, the barbarian king known as the Black Sovereign reigns unchallenged, supported by the perverse sorcerers of the Technic League and their Gearsman servants. In its filthy streets, strange metal men from the Silver Mount enforce the dictator’s decrees, while those who revel (or pretend to) in the king’s carnal celebrations grow fat on the toil of others or become addicted to the vile, intoxicating liquids that seep from the wreckage of the Silver Mount.

Numeria is a harsh, often brutal land that raises hard, often brutal people. The land’s primary inhabitants are humans of Kellid stock who, outside of the large cities like Starfall and Chesed, tend to organise themselves along tribal lines. While in theory these tribes all owe fealty to the Black Sovereign, outside of Numeria’s big settlements and beyond the reach of the Black Sovereign’s armies, life continues much as it has for eons.2 Raiding is still a popular and lucrative lifestyle, especially into the poorly organized River Kingdoms, although those lands are not defenseless:14 river pirates often travel up the Sellen and West Sellen Rivers to attack Numerian settlements before quickly retreating back south
