A Report on the Tyrqic Nation
prepared May 13, 2101

When the Osman Tyrq horde swept into the lands that would later be known as the Imperial Osman Sultanate, many thought it was the end of the world. The Tyrqs had been know for many years as destroyers of cities and ravishers of lands. It was said that where they passed, only graveyards grew.

Fortunately for the cities and and inhabitants of the land, however, the Tyrqs had converted to Mounism only a decade before, following a miracle. After destroying the city of Bar-es-salon, slaughtering it's citizens, and building a pyramid of skulls, the great Sultan of the Tyrq Horde, Kugala Kahn brought the surviving Mounist clerics before him and the assembled clan leaders. Laughing, he told them of the tortures he had planned for them, mocking their God and declaring his power. Shaking with anger, one cleric, Nur ibn Hassan, stepped forward and said "Before you next draw your sword, God shall strike you down." Enraged by the insolence of Nur, Kugala stood in his saddle and reached for his sword to slay him. As he did so, his horse startled and bolted. Kugala's foot became caught in his stirrup and he was dragged for miles, his body torn to shreds. Stunned by this, the clan lords of the Tyrqs begged the clerics for forgiveness and converted on the spot.

Now, rather than destroyers, the Tyrqs became builders and set about rebuilding the decaying empires of the land. Under their new Sultan, Osman Timur the Great, the Tyrqs conquered an empire, not only sparing its cities, but bringing new wealth and prosperity to them. They revitalized the ancient lands and created the Imperial Osman Sultanate.

The Sultanate expanded to cover many territories, both on the continent and across the seas. Eventually, the Sultanate began to fray under the weight of it's conquests and the Tyrqic people risked being lost within it. Thankfully, under the reforms of Sultan Okan Timur XIV, the Sultanate has been reborn in the Tyrqic homeland, the core of the original Sultanate of Osman the Great.
