The Widow Harun
Shou Lung is one of three large empires on the mainland of Kara-Tur. Tu Lung is the more southerly sister realm. Shou Lung is bordered on the west by The Endless Waste, one of the nine realms of The Tuigan Empire. Historically, the Shou dynasties were in competition with Imaskar and Raumathar for control of the central continent. Today, the Tuigan are the imperial hegemon. However, Shou and Tuigan ways of life and material culture are very similar and interconnected. In addition the Shou territories are connected to Faerun by The Golden Way; many immigrants, with their unique cultural patrimony, can be found in Thesk and elsewhere.
Some aspects of Shou Lung are described in much more detail in the Forgotten Realms core books and supplements. Please consult these if you wish to learn more.
