Murghôm was an inland nation of farmers and horsemen in East Faerûn north of Brightstar Lake.[6] Before the 15th century DR, it was theoretically a subjugated territory of Mulhorand, having being part of Mulhorand in the past. However, Murghôm was an independent nation, rival to Semphar.[6][8] In the 15th century DR, Murghôm became a nation ruled by dragons.[3]

Geography[edit | edit source]

With their position beside Taan, Murghôm was amid Thay, the Great Wild Wood, Brightstar Lake and the Plains of Purple Dust.[3]

Government[edit | edit source]

During the age of ancient Netheril, Murghôm was thought to have been ruled by the family of the then mortal Myrkul. Then known as Myrkul Bey al-Kursi, the Crown Prince of Murghôm.[9]

Before the 15th century, the leaders of the Murghômi were called ataman. The state was a series of semi-autonomous communities that gathered into collective government only in times of war.[7]

That changed in the 15th century DR, when Murghôm was "conquered" by dragons. As of 1489 DR,[10] the nation was ruled by the powerful dragon princes.[3]

Demographics[edit | edit source]

Inhabitants were referred to as Murghômi.[5] As of 1479 DR, the population was made up by dragons of many varieties and a large population of mulani.[3]

Culture[edit | edit source]

The murghômi were known for their skill with horses.[6] Along with the Mulhorandi, the murghômi spoke Mulhorandi and revered the Mulhorandi pantheon[8] (as of 1372 DR[4]).
