The Malarial Queendom was an Anophelii-led empire that ruled over parts of southern Rohagi, most of Shoteka, and numerous surrounding islands, such as The Shards, roughly 2,500 years prior to Anno Urbis 1780.


The queendom was ruled by female anophelii, who required a steady supply of blood from its subjects in order to maintain their considerable intelligence. The queendom's rule was enabled by the complex machinery that the anophelii were able to create and maintain.


The queendom collapsed rapidly roughly 50 years after its founding, once there were no more easy conquests for the queendom. Once the blood sacrifices ran out, the female anophelii quickly degenerated into mindless predators.
