Map Lands of Fist

Lands of Fist

The Kingdom of Rool was a region on the western coast of the Island of Fist, south of the Sea of Fist. The Trembling Range ran along its northern border. It was the most powerful state on Fist and a rival to Korelri.[1]

Rool was a former monarchy occupied for several decades by the renegade Malazan 6th Army, which chose to cut ties with the Malazan Empire after successfully conquering Rool in the Korelri Campaign. The families of the aging Malazan veterans formed a new pampered class of nobility who still spoke Quon Talian.[2][3] Although they had an army numbering more than seventy thousand strong, they never cultivated an organised cavalry force. Few of the army's officers came from the local population.[4][5]

Overlord Yeull 'ul Taith led Rool from the capital at Paliss.

The national colour for flags and symbols was a dark brown.[6]

Emperor Mallick Rel sent the Malazan Expeditionary Force to the Lands of Fist to bring the renegade 6th Army to heel in 1167 BS. High Fist Greymane successfully defeated the Overlord and his armies, and control of the Newly Sovereign Kingdom of Rool fell back to the local nobility under General Karien'el.[7]
