Shan Ke is a kingdom in the Nexus 'verse.
It's located in a mountainous region on the east coast of the main continent.
It is governed by 2 main clans: White Moon and Black Moon. White Moon controls the castle and handles the laws and normal activities of government. Black Moon represents the guilds and workers, and handles governance at the daily level.
White Moon Castle is carved out of Shan Ke (The Hungry Mountain). It's the remains of a Dwarven diamond mine, converted to a castle after it ran dry. With the exception of the courtyard, the docks, and a few observation towers, the entirety of the castle is inside the mountain.
While the kingdom is small, the influence of the king extends far beyond its borders.
